Before each and every date make a conscious effort to go in with a positive attitude and see how much more enjoyable the date becomes.

  1. Talk before hand to make your date more enjoyable and much less anxious: If you communicate before and after the date, it can take some of the anxiety out of things. Make it a point to chat over email, text, or the phone so that you get a chance to really know each other outside of the dating experience. Then when the date comes around you are much more comfortable around each other.
  1. Celebrate who you are and that will surely draw the right people in. Confidence instantly makes you more attractive. Be happy with who you are and this will draw the right person to you.

  1. Try a new dating avenue that you never considered before: This is your time to try new things so go speed dating, try a new online dating site, or go on a blind date if this is new to you. (Try TheCatch, of course!) Get outside of your own head and try a new dating avenue that you weren’t sure about before but are ready to embrace now. This could help you to finally meet the right person, and you may have a lot of fun along the way.
  1. Learn to laugh and go in without any assumptions or judgments: Allow yourself to enjoy yourself, to kick back, and to laugh a little bit. Go in without any preconceived notions and stay away from any judgments. Laugh more, worry less, and the dates are sure to be much more enjoyable.
  1. Put time into looking your best and then leave the rest up to your sparkling personality: There is something to be said for dressing up and looking your best, for then you are confident and truly your best. Do your part and then leave the rest up to being yourself, and you may find that your entire mindset changes. Helping yourself to look your best is great, and then it’s time to enjoy the date knowing that you can feel good about everything. See for yourself, for this is how to have fun and actually enjoy the dating process for once in your life!

Here are the top 10 ways to make a man swoon over you.

Show your appreciation

When your boyfriend does something sweet, it is important that you show him that you appreciate his kind gesture. It may not be something that you need to do all the time, but in return, do something special for him. When you show a person that you appreciate them, it makes them want to continue to do nice things for you, but it also allows them to see what type of person you are.

Show interest in his hobbies

Not every man and woman have the same interests and hobbies. It is very common for couples to want to do different things, but every once in awhile you should make an attempt to show an interest in your boyfriend’s hobbies. Whether it be playing video games are going golfing, it will show him that you pay attention to what he likes and and that you have no problem with the things that he is interested in.

Cook for him

It has been said that the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. For some men, this is true. If you know how to cook, or even if you don’t, you should try to prepare meals for your boyfriend any chance you get. It may not have to be the best meal of his life, but are you taking the time out to make sure he is fed, which will make you more desirable in his eyes.

Send him naughty texts and pics

You don’t need to be classy and appropriate at all moments throughout your relationship. Men love to see that sexy, exciting side of their girlfriends, so every once in awhile send him a naughty text or pics. It is up to you, but you may want to leave nothing to the imagination. Chances are, whether you show only a little skin or bear it all, he will be longing  for you.

Dress Sexy

Your boyfriend should your body attractive no matter what size you are, but even if you aren’t sure, don’t be afraid to flaunt what you’ve been given. Men love to see their women all dolled up and dressed sexy. Schedule a fancy dinner and break out that skin tight, sexy red dress that he loves so much and show him why who’s the real winner in the relationship.

Show off your sense of humor

Everyone loves to laugh, so if you have a great sense of humor, it is important that your boyfriend sees this. You don’t need to play pranks on him or send him funny memes all the time, but do try to enjoy a comedy or make fun of things together. When couples can laugh together it shows that they have a connection, but it can also deepen their love and understanding of one another.

Be supportive

Everyone will need someone to stand by them at certain points in their life. When you are with someone, it is part of the job description to be there for them in a time of need. While some people don’t feel it is necessary to be present during these times, others recognize the importance of being there for someone when they are not doing well mentally, physically, financially or emotionally. Men can be tough and sometimes act like they do not need anyone, but you know your boyfriend better than anyone else, so if they need you, you need to be there.

Show him that you care about him

There are a number of things you can do to show your boyfriend that you care for him. It could be a small gesture like folding his laundry and putting it away, or something a bit bigger like getting him that expensive watch he has been eyeing. Women often complain about their boyfriends not listening to them or caring about how they really feel, but men could have the same thoughts and complaints about women. You don’t need to buy your boyfriend everything under the sun or tend to his every need as if you are his maid, but it is okay to show him that you care.

Give him his space

Women can sometimes get needy and clingy when they’re in a relationship, so it is important to give your boyfriend space when he needs it. Ideally, you will want to do this before he even asks for it. Having to tell your significant other that they are smothering you or that you need space isn’t always the easiest conversation to have, so to help avoid having that awkward discussion, you should just assume that every once in awhile your boyfriend will need some alone time. This is good for you because while he is enjoying his alone time, you can enjoy yours, too.

Ask him for help

Men like to feel needed by their girlfriends, so even if it is something small, don’t hesitate to ask him for help. You also want to be sure to ask him for help when you really need him for something as well. While men do love women are independent, you don’t want to make him feel like you don’t need him at all. You want to feel like he needs you and that he knows that you can come to him when you need help, so why not make sure that feeling is mutual?
