Lots of dates have gone sour because most of the people involved failed to observe the rules. one silly mistake from you could cost you your life-partner, so why not take some time out and the major tips for a successful dating. While you may not have a lot of experience as far as dating goes right now, you can gain that experience in time and if you do, you may just suddenly find out that you have started to get along with women. To be able to achieve this, here are the 7 major dating tips for ghanaian men.
1) Be punctual
If you are picking her up from her home, then it is advisable to be there 5 minute before time. But don’t come any earlier or she will still be busy putting her makeup or getting dressed and won’t want you to see her half finished. One of the worst things you can do is turn up late. Turning up late will give her the wrong impressions of what you think about her. Women always assume the worst, so she’ll sit around considering the worst case scenarios when you’re late. Not only will she think that she has been stood up, but will also think that you are unreliable.
2) Compliment Her
Women loves compliments because it makes her feel sexy, gorgeous and beautiful. She needs to feel you are attracted to her. Try as much as you can to make it real, dont let her think that you are making it up. The first thing to say to her is “you look beautiful” before you even ask how she is. Keep the compliments flowing throughout your date, such as “your hair looks nice, I like the color of it, and your outfit is great.” But don’t over flog it.
3) Be confident
Everyone’s nervous on a first date, but there’s nothing more attractive than a bit of self-confidence. When it comes to conversation, stay in your comfort zone by coming up with a few topics that you can talk about easily so you’re not out of your depth too early. But it’s a delicate balance – no one wants to be the guy who bangs on about his comic book collection all night, or what a pro his is on the bench press. If in doubt, ask your date about themselves and go from there. It sounds simple, but choosing someone with similar interests is a big plus, by so doing both of you will have lots of things to talk about.
One of the most embarassing things you could do when going out on a date (especially if it is your first date with her) is to come looking dirty, unshaven and smelling bad. Women are clean and will judge you on how hygienic you are. It doesn’t cost anything to take a bath and make an effort.
Always have in mind that bad breath and body odour are an instant turn off, and she will assume that this is how you are all the time. Even if you are just having a bad day or didn’t think you have time to clean up, she won’t see beyond your appearance,and you will find it very difficult to convince her otherwise, so you mind never get a second chance to impress her.
5) Listen to Her and Ask Questions
Nobody wants to be ignored. You can ask her questions, but more importantly listen to what she has to say. There is nothing woman likes more than when someone is interested in what they have to say. Remeber when asking asking questions, let it be questions that are relevent to what she is saying. I remember once I was sitting in a restaurant waiting for some friends. There was a man and woman sitting at the table next to mine and I couldn’t help overhearing their conversation, though it isn’t a conversation when only one person is talking. I could tell it was their first date from what he was telling her about himself. “I play Saturday league football, I like boxing…” He went on like this for about 10 minutes without stopping or asking her questions.
She was just sitting there nodding slightly every so often and looking bored. That day left an impact on me, and every time I have been on a date since, I have been conscious of the woman, making a point to take an interest in what she had to say. [Recommended: Ghanaian Celebrities on the News]
6) Be prepared
Your first date with her is a very good opportunity to make a good impression and show her the stuff you are made of, and believe me first impression means a lot. Get your hair cut, maybe invest in a new outfit, and check your teeth and nails are looking presentable. Plan to arrive a little early, so as to be settled. When it comes to order, avoid things that you have not eaten before.
7) Promise to Call her
Only tell her that you will call her if you mean it and intend on seeing her again. This is an awkward situation, and most of the time the easiest solution is to take her number and tell her you will call her. But don’t do it if you are not interested. Just say good night, smile and walk away. But if you do like her and are interested, then make sure you let her know and tell her you’ll be in touch.
