So I should probably give you all an update on the lovely Cardiffian who took me out a few weeks ago…
Needless to say…thing have progressed rather quickly!
We have been to the beach, been for a picnic, gone out and got absolutely smashed and rolled in at 6am… Yes, the last one was my idea!
We have also spent a considerable amount of time in each other’s company. To the point where I almost…dare I say it…Miss him?… When we’re actually apart that is!
Another notable difference is my current status on Facebook, which now says “In a relationship”
I’ve never been massive on the declarations of feelings via social media, but feeling rather pleased with myself at my ‘catch’ I felt the need to share the news with the whole world…And by whole world I definitely mean the 100 or so people on my friends list!
So…What would I say were the things that worked out…Like right at the beginning…
…Hmmm…Some wisdom I can pass on to all of you
Okay well here are my top tips for if you want to really nail the first few dates!
1. Be Creative- Keeping a date inexpensive does not mean that it needs to be boring. Women get tired of going on an endless stream of dates that involve meeting for drinks. Try to come up with a fun little activity to keep things exciting.
2. Come Prepared- You should always go into a first date with plenty of interesting stories to tell, or fun topics to talk about. It’s not enough to just show up. You have to be interesting as well if you wish to be remembered long after the first date ends.
3. Be Slightly Forward- Don’t be a perfect gentleman the entire time. Flirt a little bit. Touch your date on the hand or arm every now and then. Take charge of making decisions. Women are mainly attracted to alpha males, so show you have the confidence to be one. Just keep it innocent. There should be no full-on touching or intense sexual flirting. Everything should be light and innocent.
4. The Awkward Goodbye- An awkward goodbye has the potential to ruin everything that came before it. Don’t force a first kiss if it doesn’t feel natural, and don’t linger endlessly around your date. Be confident, say goodbye, and live to fight another day! Or just simply stick to your guns & go in for the kill… Women are usually pretty good at making their intentions known beforehand anyway!
Whatever you do though…Don’t do what I did and turn into the Cookie Monster!!
