Top 12 Dating Tips

Follow these tips to get you from ‘Hello’ to ‘I Do!’


5. Smile the five second flirt.

When you see a man you like, smile for five seconds and hold the gaze, then look away. If he comes over to you he is into you. If he doesn’t, he is either not attracted to you, insecure, or involved with another woman, in which case he was never meant to be yours to begin with. Practice on men you have no interest in to get your confidence up and do this once a day. If you do this at least seven times in one week – to men you really want – I promise you, you will have more men chasing you than Cleopatra.

6. Go out alone. Those who travel in packs do not attract.

Do you ever wonder why guys don’t come over to you when you are with the girls? It is quite simple, if they do and your friends don’t like him or are jealous of you getting the attention, he has no chance of scoring a date with you. It is when you are alone, sweet, sexy and available that a man has confidence in approaching you. Go out alone to your favorite male friendly restaurant/ bar at about 4:45 p.m. – Monday through Friday. Sit at the bar, order a drink and appetizer, bring a topical book, and I promise more men will approach you than ever before.

7. Let the man lead and all will be revealed.

Let the man initiate the conversation, call you and set up the date. If you call a man for anything you are setting the precedent, and will end up doing most of the work throughout your courtship and thereafter.

8. Do not sleep with a man unless you are in an exclusive relationship where he has discussed exclusivity/monogamy with you in the sober light of day.

Do not assume he is unless he soberly has verbalized it to you. If you do not stick to this, then any man can assume you do this with all the men you date and that you do not love yourself enough….than why should he?

    I want to highlight tip #8 here. Ladies, we should have control and never ever do it on your first date, bec the guy might think that you’re too easy to get and worse you do it with all the men you date and you don’t respect yourself.

    Sometimes, dating also comes with a heartbreak. If you treat dating and love like a game, someone or both of you will end up the loser. It won’t hurt to get a few tips from an expert.

    Thank you Sarah for sharing these tips. Loved the article.
