Dating can be scary, especially for those who may not know where to start. Thankfully, due to modern technology, it’s easier than ever to make a connection! From Tinder to OkCupid, there are more options than ever to meet Mr.Right. But of course, there are some rules when entering the dating world that is important if you want to meet the right guy, and following them will help you find him!
Firstly, you want to be as open-minded as possible when entering the dating world. Have your Mr.Right planned out to the tie on his neck? Maybe it’s time to explore a little. Remember that there are a plethora of guys out there, and to limit yourself to one type would be pretty boring. The whole point of dating is to meet new people, so go out there and explore!
Try New Things!
This point kind of relates to the first point, but more specifically trying new things means to maybe try being more spontaneous and try that weird menu item, (but maybe not on the first date!), or maybe try doing something different instead of the regular movie date (sky-diving anyone?) as this can help show that you’re willing to try new things and be open-minded so don’t worry about thinking outside the box a little with this one!
First dates can be scary for anyone, but it’s important to remember that you're there to try new things and meet new people, so always remember to not be afraid to jump outside your comfort zone for a date. Dates are always a great time to explore your interests, especially with someone else, and can be a great way to bond over a newly found hobby!
Of course, being spontaneous and adventurous is great and all, but it’s also important to be aware of the dangers of dating in today’s society. Firstly, make sure that, when meeting someone that you’ve met online, make sure that you meet in a public place to ensure your safety. (No first date taking place at your apartment!) Another way to stay safe is to make sure you might at daytime. Evening dates are great in all, but first dates are great for those mid-day cups of coffee, to learn more about the person and get to know them. Also, on the topic of first dates, make sure to sip the movies on the first date; you’ll end up knowing even less about them by the end of it.
The most important thing to remember is to enjoy the date! Dates tend to go a whole lot better if you aren’t constantly worried about how you look or what you said.
To wrap it all up, what’s most important is having a good time. Therefore, if you feel that you aren’t having fun, going on the same date with the same people, then maybe it’s time to change things up and step outside your comfort zone!
