Advice for women about dating a friend
Don’t worry, this doesn’t mean you need to wear a full tuxedo, but having a shower, a shave and putting on something suitable will help you impress your date and get you off to a good start.
Yes, you should never pretend to be someone that you’re not, but a girl might like to see that you take pride in your appearance.
It may be worth letting her know towards the beginning of your date, just so you’re both on the same page. Yes, in films they always leave it a couple of days to contact each other, but this is real life.
In the early stages of dating, you want her to be spending time with you because she likes you, rather than because she thinks she owes you something. If you don’t contact her within a couple of days, you’ll seem like you couldn’t be bothered, or didn’t enjoy the date.
Reassure her that your past is history and that you want to spend your time getting to know her instead.
There’s nothing more annoying than phones ringing whilst trying to spend quality time out with friends, and it’s just as irritating on a date.
If you’re a little shy, practice beforehand by talking to people you don’t know.
Or, whilst on the date, pick a subject that you’re enthusiastic about, such as a hobby.
Many people may also be shy about their appearance.You may not be 6ft tall with a six-pack, but it’s more attractive to a woman to show that you’re comfortable in your own skin and happy being you.
