Dating Tips

What not to do on your date!
1. Try not to talk about an x partner on a first date
2. Do not tell your date about other dating experiences
3. Do not talk about your problems and your past
4. Never compare a new relationship with an old relationship. If you find yourself doing this, you may have gotten into a new relationship too quickly.
5. Don’t brag about yourself and your accomplishments. Instead, focus on your prospect’s interests?

How to behave!
1. Listen to what your date is saying and make a response relevant to the subject matter they were talking about.
2. Do not answer a dates question with another question they will think you have something to hide.
3. Try to learn as much information about them as you can without prying. Ask them about their favourite country, what food or wine they enjoy or places that they would like to visit in the future. These makes wonderful topic for starting unconventional chat. It always boosts the conversation, and usually you can learn enough to know if they want to see you again.
4. Ask questions. And try to make them “why”, “how”, or “what” questions that cannot be answered with a simple “yes”, “no”, or “maybe”. Instead try something like: What is it you like about that particular country? Or – Why would you like to visit that country?

What to wear
Men
Always make an effort, first impressions count.
Men who wear blue are said to be “stable, faithful, constant and always there.” The man who chooses blue as his colour is a brilliant candidate for a long-term relationship — someone who’s dependable, monogamous and can match his own clothes.

Ladies
Colour experts say, soft colours are supposed to make ladies more approachable. These colours are”very flattering to most skin tones, it gives you healthy glow, a little vulnerability which brings out something protective in men.”
Want to wear a colour that weeds out guys who can’t handle strong women?
Try a deep red, burgundy or plum. Men who aren’t attracted to strong women will steer clear.
Of all the colours, red is the most sensual. But, wear red with caution. Red is the colour of sex and power and adds an element of excitement it attracts two types of men – men interested in sex, and men attracted to powerful women.
Concerned your wardrobe is driving people away? Stay away from yellow-green, which is said to repel both sexes equally.

Body Language
Use body language to attract the opposite sex?

Women
If you’re a woman, the key is to make yourself approachable. To accomplish this don’t take up a lot of space (which is a sign of power and superiority.) you have to show you have room in your life for someone else. To be approachable women should stand with their feet no farther than 6 inches apart with toes pointed slightly inward. Other key moves are to nod and tilt your head a signal you’re listening to what the other person has to say.

Men
For men, appearing more dominant effectively draws the attraction of women. To attract women, stand with your feet 6-10 inches apart, and toes pointing outward. Feel free to take up some space. Men who have the nice guy image should “try wearing bulkier or more conservative hairstyles or clothing,” hold your head up, and speed up your speech and gestures to be more assertive.

Body language tips for both sexes:
Don’t fold your arms and don’t chew on gum, ice or your fingernails. Chewing indicates anxiety or frustration, neither of which are very attractive emotions.

Smile
Body language experts agree that one of the most important things you can do to make yourself more attractive (and approachable) is to smile.

The Scent Factor
Studies show that men associate the scents of cinnamon and vanilla with love and women are attracted to a black liquorice scent.
