Honestly, what’s the obsession with girls who text on the phone while on a date? I took a girl out with some buddies of mine to a fun bar and she stayed glued to her cell phone. Barely looked up and everyone thought she was really rude.
I’m dating a younger woman (I’m 38, she’s 26) and lately I’ve been feeling like the old creepy guy when hanging out with her friends. I don’t get a lot of their jokes even though we’re not THAT far apart in age. We really connect, but I know it’s important for her to be able to bring her boyfriend around her friends. What can I do to make it easier?
I’m still under 30 and like to socialize with people. My bf thinks it’s immature and thinks I don’t have my priorities straight. I don’t know if I’m ready to sacrifice nightlife for a guy I’m dating. I want him to come out with me and socialize at the bar too! We met at one, why can’t he enjoy going out with me?
There is nothing wrong with having an active social life beyond your boyfriend! Regardless of age, you should always maintain (and grow) friendships outside of your relationship. Studies have shown that having numerous friends is actually good for your health!
In my opinion, you have to ask the right questions going into the relationship. These questions include the obvious, “Did any of your past relationships end in cheating on your part?” If the answer is yes, it’s important to know whether the cheating has been a pattern or if it was a one time thing.
How soon after first date should I expect a guy to send me a text? I’ve had guys text me right after saying they had a good time and others go days before sending me even a hello. Should I say something at the end of each date to make sure they’ll contact me?
I’m a fashionista by day and a homebody by night. I like to observe people’s styles and have found myself liking a certain style for men. If I really like the man I’m dating but don’t like his personal style, what’s your advice for me making a suggestion without being critical?
I can’t help but look at a few girls who walk by my dinner table when I’m on a date. I know it’s dumb and I’ve been told by other girls I’ve been rude but I can’t help it. Are there any tricks for me to keep in mind before I go out with someone? I’m noticing it’s a problem and girls aren’t sticking around too long after our dates. Oops.
What do I mean by “efficiently”? I mean dating to uncover maximum compatibility with minimum time and effort. It benefits neither of you to spin your wheels with someone you haven’t got a snow ball’s chance in Hell of lasting with. If your mission in dating is to lead to a long-term intimate relationship, this article is for you.
“Eden, how am I going to get their attention if they’re not impressed with me?”
It’s simple. Be authentic – let THAT be the impression. If your date is comfortable with who you are from day-to-day, then they’re much more likely to want more. If you put on a “representative” because you think your date will like that better – you may very well be right.
