    8 Ways To Improve Your Dating Habits

    Guys, are your dates about as successful as a batch of burnt cookies

    Dating is quite the roller coaster, if you know what you're doing. And there's no doubt that ladies get the easy part. Men on the other hand are charged with making a great impression. It's odd, but that's the way a girl's mind works. We think that if we give a guy the opportunity to take us on a date, they should use the time to impress us. That being said, many boys have a difficult time doing it.

    As we all know, some dates can go horribly wrong. Like when a girl gets her friend to call her half way through the date with an emergency? I apologize to all those guys who thought it was actually an emergency. But those types of getaways are avoidable, a man just needs to press the right buttons.

    Do Bring Her Flowers

    Honestly, women who receive flowers from men don't view them as any less 'tough'. We don't even care whether they've been picked from the neighbor's yard or if we are allergic. Just the romantic thought of opening the front door and seeing you standing on the front porch with flowers is impressive.

    Although it isn't necessary, it definitely scores extra points and shows the girl that you care.

    Do Tell Her She Looks Beautiful

    Obviously if you asked this lady on a date, you are attracted to her. Men have no idea how much time is spent before a date finding the perfect outfit, the appropriate hairstyle, and the right perfume. It takes two seconds for a man to say, "You know, you really look beautiful tonight." Every woman wants to hear that line. It's short, sweet, and we appreciate a man who makes us feel good about ourselves.

    Do Open Doors

    Although feminists who are fighting for equality might argue this point, opening the door for a woman is still the gentleman thing to do. Women know they are just as capable of holding doors open, but they want to see an effort made to demonstrate such a kind gesture. Whether it is a car or a restaurant, open the door.

    Look on the bright side – as she walks through the door you have the opportunity to check her out from behind. It's a win-win situation!

    Do Walk Her to the Door at the End of Night

    Unless she lives with her family and her dad is aiming a rifle from the window, it is important to walk your date to the door. Slamming on the gas pedal the moment she steps out of your car is also a bad idea.

    Furthermore, walking your date to the door opens a new door of opportunities. Whether she invites you in for coffee, or rewards you with a goodnight kiss, your night will be complete.

    Don't Answer your Mobile

    Answering a phone call during a date is rude. It interrupts the conversation and leaves your date bored, starring awkwardly at her feet. Put it on silent or leave it in the car. And if it does ring while you're in the middle of a conversation, simply turn it off and turn back to her and say, "sorry about that – you were saying?"

    Don't Bring up your Ex-Girlfriend

    Unless she asks, do not bring up anything about your ex-girlfriend. If something on the date reminds you of your ex-girlfriend, please bite your tongue. It's simple, on a first date women want to get to know the men they are with, not their past relationships. This leads me to the next point.

    Don't Talk Only About Yourself

    If the date conversation is not balanced, things can take a turn for the worst. A man who is a narcissist is extremely annoying and can bore his date to death. Make an effort to ask questions about her and show interest.

    Don't Have a Negative Attitude

    First dates are also first impressions, and no one enjoys the company of a complainer. This applies to both men and women. Think about it! Would you consider a relationship with someone who is always putting themselves and everything else down? If the glass is always half empty, your relationship will be too.

    gentlemen always come out on top
    The world of dating is wonderful because you get to experience the good and the bad, and the terrible ones teach you what you are looking for in a partner. From dates you develop standards and begin to understand how to impress someone with your unique personality.

    There are so many more dimensions to dating and the avid gentleman will always come out on top. Nevertheless, these suggestions will put you on the right path and give you a distinctive advantage. Just remember to keep it up on the second date.

    I will go ahead and say that EVEN if she asks, it's better to tip-toe around this subject gracefully. It's a no-win situation, better to be avoided.

    I think this has been the first and main big turn off for me in Many situations.. It may be about being nervous but after I`ve been sitting there not able to say a word and I know his full story..it`s pretty safe to assume I won`t stick around for dessert and there won`t be a second date.. At that point I`m thinking he really doesn`t need me here!
    Although I`m sure this advice could apply to women as well..


    Answering cell phones too.. but that`s not just on dates.

    I agree. I hate it when my date answer her cell in the middle of the conversation. I usually make sure myself is on silent or off when I am on a date.
