If you make a man your whole life, he’s going to lose interest because he will most likely feel smothered!Remember, he fell in love with the dynamic “you” who has her own interests and passions who wanted to make him a part of your life, not the whole darn thing.While you might think it cute to have three glasses of wine at dinner, he does not. If you need to loosen up before a date, watch a comedy right before you leave or take a walk. One guy told us that he went on a first date and his date wouldn’t order any food because she wasn’t “hungry.” But then every time he cut a piece of steak on his plate, she reached over and ate it!Best to leave your glass half full and your plate empty(ish).
Your date may have a local park he/she frequents or a European city that’s been a regular destination. After the introduction and awkward hug, this opening question should follow. Does the bartender know to bring a gin and tonic to the table before you order? Wouldn’t “Cheers” be a great place for a first date? His or her list could include travel plans, career goals, personal milestones, or adrenaline-junkie adventures. Instead of prying into past heartaches and failures, give him or her an opportunity to share struggles any way he/she so chooses.
While our male counterparts can confuse the heck out of us Dignity Daters, sometimes they can be the best when it comes to dishing out dating advice.
