5 Dating Tips for Women

The world of dating is full of dos and don'ts. Sometimes it feels like there are too many rules to keep track of, making women feel like they have failed if they don’t secure that second date. However, whether you are newly single, or are just getting back into the game after a dating hiatus, we have the top five simple tips that will hopefully help you relax and enjoy your date. 

Try and be on time

Although the ‘fashionably late’ ideology still exists, you will make a better impression and feel more relaxed if you do show up on time. Although it is not a deal breaker, if you are going to be late, it is better to at least text or call your date to let them know. Apologise with dignity once you do arrive, but don't feel guilty if the circumstances were out of your control. 

Wear something comfortable

Before picking an outfit to wear, keep in mind what type of date you are going on, as well as factors such as the weather, time of day and location. While you want to look great, it is important to feel comfortable. If you can strike the right balance, you'll exude confidence. 

Speak up

Don't be afraid to let your date know if you aren’t keen on what they have planned for the evening. It is better to tell them before you sit down and order. Similarly, if your date asks you what you would like to eat or drink, be decisive and choose what you really want. 

Offer to pay

An easy way to do this is to reach for the check when it arrives. If your date insists on paying, offer to split the bill, or leave a tip. Remember, if you do offer to pay or split the check, be prepared to actually part with your cash.

Be positive and have fun

Remember to try and have fun on your date. If the food isn’t great or the restaurant isn't what you were expecting, don't complain. However, don’t lie and say you like it either - remain polite and neutral. 

If your date has clearly taken the time to choose the venue, compliment something about it, such as the location or scenery. Being positive will also make you more fun to be around, making the date more comfortable for you both.
