Successful Dating Tips

Are you tired of going on bad dates? Dates that you spent time preparing for and even got excited about, only to find yourself glancing at your watch and counting the minutes until it was over? A common misconception is that you have to go on many bad dates in order to find that special someone. However, that’s not true. What is true is that you might not know how to choose the right dating prospects to begin with. Why waste your time on a date with someone you have nothing in common with? Here are some of the best dating tips from relationship experts.

Decide What You Want

Believe it or not many people have no clear idea about the kind of person they want to date. This can lead to disaster. Before you go on your next dating experience, make a list of the qualities you are looking for in a person. Is a sense of humor, spirituality or a love of children important to you? If so, dating someone who is obsessed with his or her job and who doesn’t believe in a higher power is not going to work.

Deciding what you want is also a good way to figure out where to go in order to meet your ideal dating prospect. For instance, if art is your passion, visiting museums and exhibits will likely turn up better dating material than simply going to a singles bar on a Friday night. If sports is your passion, consider visiting local sporting events or joining a tennis club or at least a fitness center.

Dating Services

There are many dating services to choose from nowadays, and they have lost their reputation as lonely heart’s clubs. You can find some quality dating prospects by signing up with a couple (or more!) online dating services. The general ones have the most members, but it’s possible to find services that cater to specific interests.

When you fill out your online profile, choose honesty above all else. There’s no point pretending to be someone or something else, especially if you are looking for a long-term relationship. Try to make your profile unique to your personality, and don’t forget to include a recent photo.

Inform Your Social Network

The more people who know you are interested in fun dating prospects, the better off you will be. You don’t want to appear desperate, but don’t be afraid to let friendly co-workers and others know you are looking for someone. People who know and care about you will have your best interest in mind when they recommend someone, and if the relationship takes off they will love the fact that they served the introductions.

Make sure you thank anyone who recommends a date, even if the experience doesn’t go over well. The important thing is not to burn any bridges when you are on the dating scene.

Go To The Right Places

A first date will have both people nervous, so it’s best to go someplace neutral the first time around. Meeting for coffee or lunch will lead to less stress than meeting for dinner and a movie. Also, make sure you meet anyone you don’t know in a public place that you are familiar with.

Even if a date doesn’t go well, say thanks and wish the person luck. Above all, don’t give up hope. The dating scene is full of ups and downs, but when you meet the right person it will all be worth it.
