Question: John from Port Hope asks…Lava365 Ask the Expert

Should I Give Up Clubbing for My Boyfriend?

Kerry from Vancouver asks…Lava365 Ask the Expert

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!

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.

“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.
