Reasons For No Second Date

Dating today definitely has its challenges. With so many options, many men and women experience the one and done date time and time again. It can be difficult to land that second date and make an incredible impression! Many of you have experienced an incredible date where you felt it was amazing, filled with chemistry….and then crickets. No call. No text. Not a word. There are very possible reasons why this happens. You spend hours analyzing why they didn’t contact you. Below, are the top reasons why a second date may not happen.

  • Not being real and coming across fake

Everyone wants to be on their best behavior on a first date, but there is huge difference from being real and authentic to having to be perfect and amazing at everything. People appreciate flaws, being down to earth, and most importantly, just being yourself

  • Being Too Real

Everyone appreciates realness and honesty, however, some people can over do it. Airing your dirty laundry, skeletons in your closet, and sharing way too much all at once, is not well received. It is too much for one to take in. Keeping it light and fun is key.

  • Only Talking About Yourself

When you can’t stop talking about yourself and make yourself the center of all conversation, your date loses interest. You may find them with a blank stare not even paying attention to what you are saying. Keep the conversation going back and forth. Ask questions. Be engaged with each other.

  • Poor Hygiene

You don’t have to be perfect and dressed to the nines. However, not representing yourself in the best light, has its consequences. We all notice if a man or woman comes to a date looking sloppy, wearing a dirty shirt, messy hair, and not smelling up to par. When you ate a garlic tuna sandwich for lunch as one can guess, not a good look. Point made.

  • Awful Conversation Topics

When you go on and on about your ex. Your date doesn’t want to hear it. Not only is it uncomfortable, we don’t care. Sorry. We want to know you, not your past relationship. Talking about politics is a recipe for disaster. Stay away from topics that will possibly cause an argument. You want fun, light, and happy conversation. The date should be fun, after all.

The 5 Worst First Date Mistakes

The 5 Worst First Date Mistakes

The first date can be a wonderful thing if you put your mind to it. If you go in with the right attitude it may very well lead to a second date and much more from there. It does take effort on both parts, but if you are determined and know what to do then the first date can be a wonderful opportunity to meet somebody great. There are however some big mistakes that you want to be sure to avoid. If you make one of these mistakes they can destroy your first date, ruin your confidence, and ultimately be an obstacle in future ­–relationships.

dating-etiquette-germany

There’s a good chance that you can go into the first date with nervous energy or even anxiety, and sometimes that can keep you from enjoying what may come to e. There are a variety of reasons why people blow it on the first date, but having awareness and then working through these issues is what matters. Try to learn from past mistakes and ensure that they don’t come up again, and you will be lucky in love. Far too many of us try to be somebody that we’re not or we let our nerves get the best of us, and this can lead to ongoing problems.

If you want to ensure that you don’t blow it on the first date and that you turn your luck around in love, here are the biggest mistakes to avoid on that all important first meeting.

  1.    Talking constantly about your previous relationships or your ex: Though you may have been hurt or had a horrible breakup, the first date is definitely not the time to talk about it. Even if you feel comfortable with this person, they don’t want to hear about your previous relationships or how horrible your ex was. Save that talk for your friends and focus on the present in this first date, otherwise, if you talk too much about the past it may indicate that you’re not ready to move on just yet.
  2.    Coming off as cocky or self-absorbed: Confidence can be a really great thing and can show them that there are wonderful things to get to know about you. Coming off as cocky, however, is something very different! If you are self absorbed or if you only talk about yourself, then this will serve as a huge turn off. Never be overbearing or talk too much about yourself, for they will want to end the date and never see you again.dating-uncomfortable-zones-of-men
  3.    Talking without actually taking the time to listen and get to know the other person: Along the same lines, they don’t only want to hear about you without telling you something about themselves. Yes you want to talk and share things about yourself, but allow them the same opportunity. If you hijack the conversation they will see you as overly aggressive and overbearing, neither of which are good personality traits. You can kiss that second date goodbye if you do nothing but talk on the first date!
  4. Getting drunk or taking things too far physically speaking: In the end, you have to remain in control, for if you don’t then bad things may come about. Be sure that you limit your alcohol consumption because getting drunk looks bad and means that your inhibition is down. Though a first kiss can be a great thing on the first date, if you take things too far they won’t respect you—this will end up as a one night stand rather than the first date with future possibilities and it will ultimately hurt your self-esteem in the process!
  5.    Asking invasive questions or talking about topics that are off limits on the first date: Do not ask personal questions that make the other person uncomfortable. Also be sure that you keep potentially controversial topics off the table on the first date such as religion, politics, or personal views. There will be plenty of time to get to know each other but save these topics for later on. Never make them feel uncomfortable or be invasive, for you will never get the chance to enjoy a second date. If you avoid mistakes such as these then you will be much more likely to get to that all important second date and get a chance to see where things go from there.

 

The 8 Best Ways To Secure a Second Date

The 8 Best Ways To Secure a Second Date

When you go into that first date it may feel as though your nerves truly get the best of you. Though you want to impress this person, you may feel overwhelmed by concern about how you will across and how things will go. This is a great time to take a deep breath and really let your true self-shine through. If you want to get to that second date then you have to be ready for where the night takes you, and ultimately be yourself so that they see what you are all about.

This, of course, takes confidence, but it also means that you have to be open-minded to the possibilities. Though this may not necessarily be the match that you dreamed of on paper, you never know how things can go. If you can stay positive, live in the moment, and really enjoy the time that you spend with this person on the first date then things may go better than you might think. The first date can be an excellent platform for the second date—and here are the tips to help you to win them over and secure that second date to really see where things go!

  1.    Use the power of body language to show interest: This doesn’t mean that you are promiscuous but it just means that you embrace the power of flirting and some well placed body language to win them over. Smile at them, make eye contact, stand with your body open without arms crossed—these are the types of things that show them that you are interested without saying a word! Body language is a very powerful tool in showing this person that you are intriguing and that you are interested in them for more than just this first meeting.
  2.    Be yourself and show confidence: One of the most attractive traits is confidence, so get in touch with your own and let it shine through. This is not a time to pretend, but rather just be yourself and own what that means. When they see that you are confident about the person that you are, then they can’t help but be interested in learning more about you. There is something more to learn and your confidence shows them that you have got it going on, so they want to be a part of that.
  3.    Go in with an open mind and a positive mindset: You never know when this person that you meet could turn into something really great in your life. Don’t shoot yourself down before the date even starts, but rather go in with an open mind. Being positive makes you more attractive and when you see what possibilities may come out of this first date, you may allow yourself to get to the second date when you normally would have never considered it.
  4.    Listen as much as you talk: There should be a good back and forth type of conversation going on in this first date to get to the second one. Be sure that you share details about yourself, but also be ready and willing to listen to them too. When you can find that good balance then good things happen. Be conscious of the ability to talk as much as you listen and vice versa, for good conversation is the key to a second date!
  5.    Have fun and look at this as an opportunity: Stop worrying about what may come and just have fun on the first date. If you want a second date then you need to see this for what it is, and that’s an opportunity. Enjoy yourself, have fun, laugh a little, and see what may come. When you can just have fun it’s very attractive and makes the other person want to see you again with certainty.
  6.    Do something fun together that allows the two of you to talk: Do keep in mind that whatever you do together on that first date makes a difference if you will get to a second date or not. Try to plan something fun together like a picnic at the park or grabbing coffee that ensures that you can enjoy each other’s company. If you want to get the second date then the environment on that first date and your ability to get to know each other matters greatly.
  7.    Leave something to the imagination—a little mystery can go a long way: Though you want to be forthcoming you also want to leave something to the imagination. A little bit of mystery can help to keep them intrigued. This means that you don’t put all your cards out on the table and you leave something for them to get to know about you on future dates to come.
  8.    Focus on the present and this person before you: Stop worrying about the future and never focus on the past—just focus on the present and this person sitting before you! There can be great things to come if you just put yourself into the current situation and stop worrying about what may or may not come to be. This isn’t always easy but if you can just live in this moment and focus on what is happening in the first date, then that second date will be much more likely to come and then you can enjoy what lies ahead from there!

 

Boring Men Never Become Less Boring

My girlfriend has been dating this guy for a few months and so I hear a lot about their relationship. They have been dating and there are times when she finds him boring. Super nice guy and everything but she has been moved to tears by boredom. I’ve often asked her why she continues to stay with him if talking to a pole can at times bring about deeper conversations. Her reasoning is that she’s hoping she can spark some excitement into him making him the perfect man. I disagree. I don’t believe that a boring man can suddenly become less boring, I think he’s boring for a reason; that’s why these men always end up in the friend zone. I myself have dated the boring man so I feel like I’ve done extensive research on the subject. There are undeniable traits of a boring man, and here they are:  

Top-15-Worst-Habits-That-Women-Hate-In-Men

  1. They Don’t Mind Waiting

The problem with boring men is they don’t feel their time is valuable and they will prove it to you. How this works from a dating standpoint is simple. These are the guys that take forever to ask a girl out, or who will spend too much time on a woman who isn’t even interested.

  1. They Expect Something For Being Nice

These are the guys that don’t understand why a girl is not falling in love with him because he is “so nice” to her. What boring guys don’t seem to get is that everyone is nice. That doesn’t mean that it makes them immediately dateable.  A nice guy is not reason enough to date someone. There are no extra points for being nice, guys! It’s called being human.

  1. When Life Isn’t Fair They Get Upset

When the going gets tough these guys can’t handle the pressure; they will pout, whine and moan when life doesn’t go their way. Someone who is exciting and self-possessed won’t behave in this manner. They will roll up their sleeves and get the job done, no matter what life throws at them. Don’t date a guy with a victim mentality.

  1. They Are Gentle Towards Women

Boring men handle the women they are interested in with kid gloves. The sexy men will be aggressive and go after what they want while a boring guy will be overly friendly, soft and gentle so that he can show us what a harmless man he is. You know the guy in your office who everyone says would never hurt a fly? That’s the boring guy. These men are worried they will scare us off if they don’t appear unintimidating.

They exhibit behaviors such as:

  • They will always follow a joke or flirt with “didn’t mean it.”
  • They will laugh nervously and smile a lot
  • Overly chumming, hugging women or hi-fiving them, overly excited when they greet them, and letting women vent to them.
  1. They Have No Interests or Passions Of Their Own

Most sexy and exciting men have lives of their own. They are either involved in sports or going to the gym, always competing against other men to be the best. A boring and unsexy man will have a lack of passion. There are men out there that have no drive to be the best and nothing to

A man with passion is very attractive to a woman because she wants to be close to the fire that is burning inside of him. A boring man doesn’t strive for anything and is fine with the status quo which a woman can find boring especially if she is ambitious.
These are just a few of the qualities that you can look out for when jumping head first into the dating game. Keep a look out for the boring man and don’t waste your time trying to change him. Boring men will always be boring.
