Internet Dating Tips for Beginners

Internet Dating Tips for Beginners has written by Veijo Kumpulainen and he writes "There are lots of Internet dating sites available. Some are completely free and others are payable sites. Both type of sites has its own benefits, but lets discuss about the situation, where you have found your possible dating candidate already. I will write this article from a men's point of view, because I'm a male myself.

You should avoid discussing about sex at the beginning. When you learn to know your partner better, you will learn how she would react to that kind of discussion. Most of the women are searching for serious partner with whom she would like to share her life. That means you should take care of yourself mentally and physically. Physically I mean that you should be decent looking, not necessarily own a great body shape.

Women will appreciate polite and honest discussion, like the rest of us of course. Women from different cultures has their own habits and interests and it would be big bonus for you if you could learn some of their cultures. Lies has always short foot prints, so be as honest as possible. There are of course women who are after money and you should never send money to them. Good and decent women do never ask you to send money..

Learn to know your partner before you are going to meet her. I wouldn't suggest meeting after two or three E-mails. Include your RECENT photos with your E-mails. Many woman stops from responding after two weeks, but don't worry. Those women are not either serious, or they have many other men in their mailing list. Just be cool and continue your search.

It is always good idea to meet your partner before making any kind of commitments. Then you and your partner will know if you really match each other. Explore your experiences and visit countries other than your's. If you're disappointed to your mate, you can find other possible candidates and contacts any time.

Dating Tips: The First Impression Matters

Rick Valens has written Dating Tips: The First Impression Matters and writes "Ever had a love at first sight encounter? Totally captured by her beauty the first time you laid your eyes on her? Having sleepless nights thinking about her? That first impression she left with you was sure astonishing wasn't it?

The first impression you give plays a very important part in the blooming of a love relationship. It determines the ever possibility of a development of the relationship. Would you fall in love with someone whom you don't have any good impression at all? The chances are, if you have a bad impression of someone, it's very likely that the more you see him the more you will dislike him. It's very hard to change one's thinking once it is set in his mind. It will need a lot of time and regular communication between both to break down that wall. So even if you can't impress that special someone the very first time, make sure you will not displease him or her. You can still work on your chances at a later time.

How can you impress someone? Well, you may be the kindest soul, so helpful; caring, fun loving and easy going whom all your friends enjoy your presence. But does that someone know? No, if there are no chances of both of you going out together, going out on a date, there's no way he or she will ever get to know you more. You have got to make that someone notice you, make your presence be known. You got to first impress him or her!.

Very naturally, humans tend to make judgment of another just by their very first acquaintance with the person. Decisions were made almost at that very moment of your job interview? Your physical appearance, the way you talk, all your little behaviors you show, will decide what kind of a person you are to them and this impression is going to be set in their mind unless some thing or someone changes it.

So what can you do? What should you take note of? First of all, your appearance of course. Your physical appearance is the very the first thing that catches a person's eyes. Put on your very best look! But do however dress appropriately. If you are going for a ball, you will not go in your jeans and tee and if you are going for a barbeque, for heaven's sake, please don't go in your tuxedo or suits. Other than your physical appearance, you have to also be careful with all your little actions, the way you speak, the way you eat, the way you look at others?

Look for chance to strike a conversation with that someone. If not a personal one, a little group conversation will be good. Try to participate in the conversation, getting his or her attention. Look into the eyes, drop him or her a nice warm smile. Let that someone know that his or her presence is felt, being felt by you. A smile with the right eye contact at the right timing can sometimes works wonder than to words. But please, keep the conversations entertaining. If you are bad with jokes, don't try it! Don't risk making yourself a clown.

For guys, show your gentlemanliness, hold the door for her, offer seat to her; offer her a ride home? But remember, be natural, take things slowly, don't overdo it and scare her off the very first time.

For girls? Well, you always got a little more privilege. Just be sure not to make yourself look unfriendly, Smile? Look him in the eyes and drop him a nice little sweet smile of yours. Do you know that your smile is enough to melt a man's heart?

Well all these little things count, your little efforts will pay off? Nonetheless, it's always good to leave people with a good impression of yourself rather than a bad one, isn't it?

Dating Options for Christian Singles

Dating Options for Christian Singles was written by Matt Keegan and writes "As a Christian, you understand that to visit bars, nightclubs, and many other worldly establishments is not the way for you to meet your mate. The people who hang out there may be nice, but they don't share the same values as you do. On the other hand, churches and Christian Singles groups are popular ways to meet and hook up with those who are of a like mind. So, what if you don't meet someone at a church or in a Christian Singles group? Well, consider meeting someone online. That's right, Christian Singles' sites are exploding in growth and I am going to tell you why!

Back in the 1990s when the internet really began to grow in popularity dating sites sprung up as people began to realize that the web presented an excellent way for total strangers to meet and date. Savvy companies took advantage of the growing legion of 'solitary singles' online by creating places where you could register, log on, and meet others. With fantastic success companies like took off and the masses were served. Copycat sites sprung up and the choices were plentiful..

Unfortunately, one segment of the Singles population did not fare well: Christians. The secrecy of the internet had many people registering claiming to be "Christian" when, in fact, they were not. Many pastors reported that congregants were falling into sinful behavior by participating on sites that were not that reputable.

So, Christian, what are you to do now? Well, a relationship expert by the name of Dr. Neil Clark Warren sensed the need and began to fill it. In 2000, Dr. Warren launched eHarmony, a site dedicated to helping Christians find each other.

What makes eHarmony so special? Well, if you were to register with this site you would quickly learn that it isn't a site that simply takes your name, a short profile, and your email address. Rather, you would fill out a lengthy questionnaire which measures the "29 dimensions" that are most important in relationship success. I won't bore you with going over all the dimensions; instead I will say that this questionnaire does something that no other Singles site can do: it basically chases away the pretenders and invites only the serious, motivated single to register. Hey, it does take effort to fill out the questionnaire...not many creeps would invest the time [or money!] to finish the task.

Warren claims that eHarmony has thousands of success stories. Whether that statement is true or not, it has opened up a way for Christian Singles to meet and marry that goes beyond what the church or the typical local singles group can offer singles. Indeed, some of the other sites are now modifying their practices to attract Christian Singles, so if the "29 Dimensions" deal of Dr. Warren's is too much for you, closely examine them to see if they can offer to you an alternative. It is a buyer's market for online singles... prayerfully consider the best choice for you!

Dating Tip for Women: Dont Work Too Hard

Terry Hernon MacDonald has written Dating Tip for Women: Dont Work Too Hard and writes "Remember Jerry Hall, the model who married Mick Jagger? Jerry was famous for making this statement:

"My mother said it was simple to keep a man. You must be a maid in the living room, a cook in the kitchen, and a whore in the bedroom."

I don't know about you, but if keeping a man meant all that work, I'd have stayed single.

In addition to that pearl of wisdom, Ms. Hall offered this one: "Even if you have only two seconds, drop everything and give him (oral sex). That way he won't really want sex with anyone else."

Poor Jerry. Too bad her mother didn't tell her that if a man tends to want sex with "anyone else," he's not great husband material.

Sadly, despite all her hard work, Mick Jagger continued to have sex with other people and fathered a child with another model during his marriage to Hall. They are now divorced. So much for keeping a man!

The point? No guy is worth running yourself ragged for. Instead of appreciating your efforts, he will likely take you for granted and come to resent you. Think about it: Do you fall for guys who are at your beck and call all the time? They're great for helping you move, but you probably wouldn't marry one.

All right. Let's say you decide to move in with a guy. Before you run out to Bed Bath & Beyond, it's absolutely imperative that you talk to your boyfriend about sharing household chores. It's not romantic, but you'll save yourself much misery in the end. And whatever you do, don't get off on the wrong foot by cooking dinner every night and doing his laundry.

Resist any and all impulses to "wife and mother" the guy. Otherwise, he'll take you for granted, or even worse, marry you and expect you to be his servant for the rest of your life. And that's definitely not romantic!

Allow a man to cook for you for a change. Let him do your laundry every now and then. There's no reason to expect him to be your maid in the living room, cook in the kitchen, or whore in the bedroom, but every once in a while it wouldn't hurt.

Remember: You have a lot to offer (if you don't believe me, take out a pen and paper and write down a list of the qualities that make you special; emphasize things like your sense of humor, leave off your ability to fold a fitted sheet).

Don't let a guy do you any favors. Keep this in mind: You're a great girl, and he'd be lucky to have you.

Dating Tips for Matchmaking and Friend Finder Sites

Katie Lewis has written Dating Tips for Matchmaking and Friend Finder Sites and writes "Three years ago, I met my boyfriend Andy through the well known online dating agency 'Friend Finder'. Since meeting, we have moved in together and are head-over-heals in love. We decided that we wanted to help others that were in the same situation as we were - single and looking for love, so we set about creating a website aimed at reviewing matchmaking and friend finder sites from across the world. We believed that in doing this, we would give people a base to start on when looking for love.

Over time, we have added to that site, as well has creating numerous articles of which this is but one. This article gives you tips on how to create a good profile, and how not to fall into the dozens of pitfalls that there are in the online-matchmaking world.

Setting up your Online Dating Account or Profile
When setting up your online profile, it is highly recommended that you first subscribe or sign up for a free email account which you do not use for business or personal incoming mail. This is simply because if you no longer wish to be in contact to someone, they will not have access to your primary email. Some online dating sights offer the option of signing up for a free email account after you have filled in your profile. This is a good idea, as it provides you with an email that can be specifically used for dating purposes. When you select your screen name, use something that isn't too intimidating. User names incorporating your own name or something that you enjoy is always effective. Make sure you reflect your personality in a conservative manner. Some examples are -

How Are You Feeling Today?
The completion of an online dating profile should be done in the right frame of mind. If you are feeling blue or perhaps lonely, or even not so positive the day you fill out your profile, it will come across that way. Choose a day when you feel happy and positive about your life, then sit down beforehand, grab a piece of paper and a pen and write down your interests, hobbies and your best points and traits. If you make a draft copy beforehand, you will find there are just so many wonderful things about 'you' that you want to share with others, you won't have space in your profile when you come to filling it in!

Be Honest with Yourself?and Others
Make sure you are honest when writing your profile. Good relationships are based on trust and honesty. If you are serious about online dating and are hoping it will lead to a meeting, you need to describe yourself and your personality accurately. There may be some parts of your identity that you wish to remain inconspicuous, but when it comes to appearance, you should describe yourself truthfully. After all, you never know when the person of your dreams will want to meet up with you! If describing your appearance is not your thing and you feel uncomfortable, just add and photo of yourself.

When attaching a photo to your profile, there are a few key things to consider. The photo you select should portray you accurately. This means not posting the one of you two years ago when you were out at a friends 21st and looked fantastic but had just '10 too many' drink. Is that a true representation of you?

For the best results, have another person take the picture for you. This will allow them to get the best possible effects from light, angle and positioning. If you enjoy the outdoors, have a friend take a picture of you in your beautiful garden with a fresh flower pinned behind your ear. If you prefer the beach, have them take it of you under a shady palm with a huge smile!

It important to appear naturel in your pictures. Dress modestly, or how you would when you were going out on a casual date. The aim is to appear naturel, yet groomed, so smile, sit up straight and be positive! This will shine out to the other person - Gorgeous!

Getting to Know Someone
When you are first starting out with online dating, it can be daunting. The most important thing to remember to is remain truthful to yourself. If you get a negative feeling about a particular person, go with it. If you feel an attachment of friendship forming, see where it leads you. You must remember there is no rush or pressures to meet, fall for or even become good friends with a person, so go at your own pace. Generally, people like an honest, friendly and warm person who is fun to be with. Each individual has their own definition of these traits; it is just a matter of finding someone who is compatible with you.

A good way to let someone you have been seeing online know how you feel about them is to send them an e-card or poem, according to their personal taste. I can be short and sweet, lusty or romantic; whatever you feel is appropriate and will be warmly welcome. Don't try and overwhelm another person. People do not appreciate this and will find themselves wanting to distance from you. If you are strongly connected to an online partner, feel free to send them flowers or a small gift.

I hope this helps you find the person of your dreams.

Lots of love, Katie Lewis

Online Dating Tips for the Digital Age of Romance

Cherie' Davidson has written Online Dating Tips for the Digital Age of Romance and writes "We are romantic creatures. We are social creatures. With these two elements sharing our genetic code, we have little choice but to seek out someone with whom we can feel free to share our romantic gestures. In the Stone Age, this was accomplished much the same way as any survival technique (i.e., hunting and gathering). In the Industrial Age, the biggest change was that we looked and smelled better during our pursuits. Now, in the Digital Age, we are more efficient with our techniques, electronically speaking, however we have also proven that the human species has not changed a great deal on this fundamental level.

So, instead of trekking over hill and dale searching for a love connection, we now flip a switch and "google" for one. Less sweat, but other than that, not much else has changed. The same criteria still dictates how humanity looks for love -- attraction, compatibility, willingness to extend a heart and hand to hold.

Online dating has many positive aspects, some great advantages over the "bar scene," and has been proven as an efficient, safe and enjoyable way to make real love connections. Online dating works very well as a pre- screening tool and allows you to relax more when you do decide to take a relationship offline. However, as with all dating rituals throughout history, there are some precautions that should be taken, to protect yourself, body and heart.

Go With Your Gut ...
Always be aware that the person at the other end of an e-mail message may not be who or what he or she represents him or herself to be. Listen to your instincts ... trust your instincts. If anything about the person makes you uncomfortable, even if it is "just a feeling," then for your own safety and protection, "walk" away.

Be Mysterious, a.k.a. Use Your Anonymity ...
Don't be too eager to disclose personal information. Never include your last name, home address, phone number, where you work, who you work for, or any other identifying information. Always discontinue communication with anyone who pushes or pressures you for personal information! Also watch for any attempts to try to trick you into revealing any personal details. Be very sure you are comfortable before revealing any such delicate information.

Build Trust Through Caution & Common Sense ...
In the offline world, trust is earned gradually through consistently honorable, upfront, honest behavior. Take all the time you need to learn if a person is trustworthy. Again, listen to your instincts. Be responsible and don't fall "head over heels" and abandon caution at the click of your mouse.

To Phone Or Not To Phone, That Is The Question ...
Obviously, share your phone number only after you feel completely comfortable and certain the person can be trusted. Common sense tells you not to offer your personal phone number to a stranger. An option could be to use a "disposable" cell phone, or utilize telephone blocking features available in order to prevent your phone number from appearing on a stranger's Caller ID.

Phone Calls Can Tell You A Lot ...
When you do get to the "phone stage" of the relationship, realize that a phone call may often reveal a great deal about someone's communication and social skills, so listen carefully -- to your instincts as well as to the other person's voice and words. And even if you feel comfortable with someone, still, always consider your security first!

Don't Be Pressured To Meet Too Quickly ...
One of the great advantages of meeting and relating online is that you can collect information gradually and on your own terms, allowing you to choose if and/or when to pursue the relationship offline. You are never obligated to meet anyone no matter how far your online relationship has progressed. Even if you decide to meet offline, you have the right to change your mind at any point. If at any moment you feel uncomfortable about meeting someone in person, listen to yourself--that "inner voice" could be based on a hunch that you can't really explain, but trust yourself.

Red Flags, Take Warning ...
Watch for negative attitudes, such as displays of anger, intense frustration or attempts to pressure or control you. Such behavior as these, as well as a passive-aggressive manner, making demeaning or disrespectful comments, or any physically inappropriate behavior should send up "red flags." Be very concerned if your date exhibits any of these behaviors. You are also wise to discontinue any relationship where the person gives you inconsistent information about age, interests, appearance, marital status, profession, employment, or anything else for that matter. If the person fails to provide direct answers to direct questions, appears significantly different in person from their online persona, and never introduces you to friends, associates or family members, don't walk, but run, the other way!

Meet In A Safe Location ...
If you decide to meet offline, always tell a good friend or family member(s) who you are meeting, a telephone number to contact you, where you are going and when you will return. Always provide your own transportation, never arrange for your date to pick you up at home. Meet in a public place at a time with many people around. A familiar, crowded meeting place is a good idea. If you decide to move to another location, take separate cars. When the date is over, leave on your own. Before trust has been built, play it safe.

If you are arriving from another city, arrange for your own car and hotel room--never allow your date to make the arrangements for you. Do not disclose the name of your hotel. Arrange to meet at a public location that the two of you can comfortably agree on. If for any reason, as you are arriving or after you have arrived, the location seems inappropriate or unsafe, return to your hotel. And as stated before, always make sure a friend or family member knows your plans and has your contact information, and for added security, carry a cell phone with you at all times.

Stay Safe ...
Never let yourself be pressured to do anything you feel uncomfortable with or unsure about. If you are in any way intimidated by, or afraid of, your date, use your best judgment, and in the least confrontational manner possible make a hasty retreat. If you are feeling unsure how to end the date early, excuse yourself and go call a friend or family member for advice, ask for help from someone in your immediate location, or slip out the back door and drive away. Don't worry about hurting feelings or being embarrassed. And if you feel you are in any danger, don't mess around--call the police. Your safety is always much more important than one person's opinion of you.

Dishonest and unscrupulous people certainly exist on the Web. We've all heard horror stories. They also exist offline, and not just in bars and at parties. Regardless of where you meet someone new, remember that a little safety-consciousness and common sense can save you from a disastrous encounter. Affairs of the heart are never risk-free, but by being alert and exercising a little caution, you can enjoy the exhilarating experience of meeting someone special, someone new, and maybe even someone you will have in your life for many happy years to come.

Little Known Dating Tips, Secrets, and Dating Mistakes

John Alanis has written Little Known Dating Tips, Secrets, and Dating Mistakes and writes "I hear it over and over-"It was going so great, and then she disappeared on me? why? What happened-we were having such a great time together. I'm tired of this happening-I want to date sexy women, but I want them to stick around. Do you have any dating tips for me?"

Yes, I do. Every time I talk to a guy who tells me this, I discover he's making the exact same mistakes most guys do, dating mistakes that kill his chances of successfully dating sexy women. So, I give him some dating tips to skyrocket his success with sexy women. Here are the most common ones:

Dating tip #1:
Don't date. Yes, that's right-don't date. Think about a traditional "date"-it's full of pressure, awkwardness, evaluation and it just plain sucks. What do you do on a "traditional date?" Dinner, movie, kiss goodnight, she doesn't return your calls. Or you have drinks, and try to "make your move," and we all know where that ends up. Much better (and cheaper) to meet for coffee-it's fun and relaxed with none of the normal dating expectations..

Dating tip #2:
The less you do and say, the more she's attracted to you. Most guys try to impress sexy women, or "lay a rap" on them. Sexy women have heard it all before. But, if you ask her about herself, shut up and listen, and display a SMALL degree of interest, she'll begin to wonder why you're not slobbering all over her. She'll want to discover more? now you're a challenge, and sexy women love challenging guys. Why? Because they rarely meet one. This is a HUGE dating tip.

Dating tip #3
Be a "naughty little boy." Another big dating tip. Remember the "class clown" in elementary school-the guy who was "cool and funny" all at the same time? When you're talking to sexy women, make unexpected and mischievous comments, the kind that leave them thinking, "I can't believe he just said that? but I like it." This shows sexy women you're NOT impressed by their looks, that you need to see more. This is so different from what they're used to they can't help but be attracted. I cannot emphasize the importance of this dating tip.

Dating tip #4
Avoid all canned pick up lines, "laying a rap," or any type of "acting." Sexy women have heard it all before, and as soon as you spout one, you're instantly a JAG (just another guy). And JAG's don't get sexy women-remember this dating tip!

Dating tip #5
Sexy women are approached and hit on 20 to 30 times a day. This is their world-to get into it, you have to be different from the 20 guys who've already talked to her. (see Dating tip #3 for how to be different to sexy women).

Dating tip #6
Look out for her tests. Sexy women (indeed, all women) will test you to see if you'll stand up to them. If you can't stand up to her, you can't stand up for her. If she asks you to buy her things, that's a test-and a perfect opportunity to be a "naughty little boy" (see Dating tip #3). Say something like, "What do I look like an ATM machine? You should buy ME something, just for the privilege of spending time with me. I like sexy women who buy me things!" This is said in a playful-yet firm-manner that lets her know you're onto her. When you pass their tests, it drives sexy women wild with desire. Very important dating tip.

Dating tip #7
Date multiple sexy women at once, and make sure the others know about it. Sexy women love a man who is attractive to other sexy women, and will compete to "win you." (Here's another dating tip: for proof of this, read any good romance novel). If you want to settle down, you can choose one, but she will always know you're desired by other sexy women-and in a strange way, this creates even more attraction for you. This dating tip really is a secret, but it works very well with sexy women.

OK, guys, that's it for this article. Obviously there are lots of other dating tips, tricks and secrets to put to use, but if you pay attention to these dating tips, you'll be a heckuva lot more successful with sexy women. Now, go re-read all the dating tips!

On with the fun?

Dating Tips for the Shy Woman

Terry MacDonald has written Dating Tips for the Shy Woman and writes "Dating can be an absolute nightmare for shy people. You want to meet the right person, but you’re too scared to do anything about it.

Introductions—sticking out one’s hand and looking another person in the eye—can be terrifying for the shy woman. The brain locks up as you scramble to think of something relevant to say. You fall apart as soon as you’re asked what you do for a living. You stammer. The heat rises in your face and under your arms. You’re suddenly incapable of forming a grammatical sentence. You think to yourself, “Why would anyone care about me? I’m really not that interesting!”

Fear not. Many shy people have succeeded in meeting new people and forming lasting, happy relationships. With a little practice, you can too. Here are some tips for taming your social terror.

1. Prepare a pitch. The question, “So, Sally, what do you do for a living?” is bound to come up, so have a ready answer. No need to brag about capturing the company Tidy Break room Award; just state clearly what you do for a living and don’t apologize for it!

2. Ask questions. People love to talk about themselves (okay, except for people like you), so ask questions. Come up with a list before you leave the house, i.e., How did you get into that line of work? Where did you go to school? Have you seen the new Brad Pitt movie? And so on.

3. When you fumble, turn the subject to the other person. Whenever you find yourself longing to throw a blanket over your head and crawl off, try saying something like “And what about you?”

4. Listen to what the other person is saying! This is important. Instead of fretting about what you’ll say next, still the wheels of your mind and listen. If a man tells you about his weekend on the golf course, and you know absolutely nothing about golf, just ask him what he likes about it, how he got into it, etc.

5. Smile. People respond well to people who smile. No need to grin like an idiot, but a disarming smile will get ‘em every time. Smiling conveys friendliness and approachability. Show teeth whenever possible. Avoid looking like a figure at a wax museum by practicing in a mirror before you leave the house.

6. Breathe. Whenever you feel your heart racing, breathe deeply and slowly. If you really start to feel uncomfortable (your face has become so hot you could use it for a wok), excuse yourself and go to the restroom.

7. Compliment the other person. Sincerity is key, so find something you like and mention it. You may be freaked out by the idea of complimenting a man on his soulful eyes, so mention his watch, suit, tie, or even his shoes. No need to go overboard: “Nice shoes,” will do it.

8. Stay on top of current events. You don’t necessarily want to bring up your stand on Bush v. Kerry during a first meeting, but be able to discuss less controversial issues intelligently.

9. Remember the weather! Some people have the “gift of gab,” the ability to make strangers feel like they’ve known them forever. They are fearless about talking about the weather, gas prices, whatever. Shy people worry that talking about mundane things will make them appear stupid. But seemingly dull subjects like the weather affect everybody. People relate to them.

10. Hold your head up. It’s the simplest, most effective way to look confident. Good posture, coupled with that fabulous smile of yours, gives you a “winner’s vibe.” You’re guaranteed to be a hit!

Be warned: These tips will not help you if you don’t leave the house. It’s just too easy to watch a Friends rerun for the umpteenth time instead of meeting people, but I promise you that Prince Charming is never going to climb through your bedroom window.

Talking to strangers can be uncomfortable, but with practice it will surely get easier. If you have a bad night, congratulate yourself for making the effort. When you have a good night, understand that you earned it. Know that countless wonderful nights are on their way to you.

Dating Tips: Attract Women And Make Your Dates Effective And Unforgettable

Giuseppe Notte has written Dating Tips: Attract Women And Make Your Dates Effective And Unforgettable and writes "You are on the first date with a girl you have a crush on. Your palms are sweating, you are trying damn hard to come up with something funny to say, only to have long silences in your conversation. She gets up after an hour and says: "Sorry but it's getting late. I have to go home to feed my dog." Before you could say something, she has left already.

I'm sure the above situation has come up in your worst nightmares. The most crucial part of your interactions and the key to success with women is the first date. If you do it well, it will be easy to get down and dirty quickly.

Most guys do something boring on the first date. Going to the movies together, sitting at a cafe, having an expensive dinner at a restaurant - the list is endless. It's easy to use this to your advantage: by putting in a little bit of fantasy, you will be way ahead of the crowd..

Here is how:
When I go out with a woman, I take her on an "adventure date". This word has multiple meanings, as you will see. We do something exciting and romantic in the same time. Something that brings you as close as it's possible on a first date.

Let's see an example:
A friend of mine takes his girls on an exciting outing. They visit one of the local sightseeing locations and end up at an abandoned ruin of a castle. By then it's usually getting dark - don't worry though, my friend is there to hug and provide safety for our just-a-little-bit frightened girl :)

Another example:
We have a hill in my city with a castle and some monuments on the top. There is a tunnel crossing the hill. A tunnel, which ends in a bridge. The bridge is illuminated at night giving a wonderful sight.

Usually, I take my date on a short walk among the monuments. As it is getting dark, we go on a tiny little road down the hill. A road, which leads us to a place that only a few people know: the top of the tunnel. And below us it's the entire city giving a wonderful and romantic sight. This is the point where I go in for the first kiss with the girl.

Don't think that you need special places or monuments to go on adventure dates. You can even do them indoors:

When the weather doesn't allow going outside, I bring my girls to the local shopping center. We sit to a cafe and talk a bit. Then I stand up and invite them for a walk around. We visit a few shops while shopping some clothes for me. Then we play bowling or go to the local bookstore. It's funny to laugh at the various love and sex advice books together with the girl.

The above are just examples, it's easy to come up with your own ideas. All you need is a little bit of fantasy and to know your city a little. Check out a local city guide paper for some examples or ask a friend who knows.

The key of adventure dates is not in the adventure itself, but in sharing activities with the girl. If you sit to a cafe and stay there for 4 hours, it will be nothing more than a conventional date. But if you sit to a cafe, then visit other places as well while being together, she will lose her sense of time and feel like you've known each other for a while. In that state, it's much easier to go in for the first kiss and get further.

Dating Tips, Ten Secrets Women Want Guys to Know

Robert Crowell has written Dating Tips, Ten Secrets Women Want Guys to Know and writes "There are many things that women wish that guys knew, but will never tell them. The problem is that if the girl has to tell the guy, it will ruin the relationship. For guys, this seems like an impossible position – “she knows what she wants, but won’t tell me.” Here are the top ten things that women wish guys knew.

1. Lead – Women won’t tell men that they want them to lead, because just having to say it means that the guy does not lead. A leader does not need permission; they take the risk and just do it.

2. Ask her advice – This may seem contradictory to number 1, but it is not. Women want men to lead, but they want to be part of their lives and they want to be respected. The best way that to accomplish both of these is for the guy to decide what they want to do, tell her, then ask for her opinion..

3. Women choose guys on how they make them feel. Any guy who can make a girl feel appreciated, protected and cherished is on his way to winning her heart.

4. Make her laugh! Don’t take life too seriously. It can be tough being a woman. There are many roles to play – daughter, sister, wife and many goals to meet - good-looking, thin, coordinated clothing, etc. Give her a break! If a guy can show her that she does not have to be perfect to be accepted, he will be an unusual guy and she will love him for it.

5. Hold the door – Its something that women’s upbringing may tell them is not needed – after all she is independent, but women will usually like it anyway. Guys do not have to knock her down to get to the door first every time, but getting in the habit of opening doors when he can is a good thing.

6. Never start a conversation with an apology – “Excuse me…”, “Sorry to bother you…”. She may think the guy is polite, but he is violating rule number 1.

7. If a guy is in a loving relationship, hold hands! It shows that he cares for her and that he is not afraid of showing it in front of others. She will never tell him, but if he does it, he will have a happier life.

8. Call Her!! After every date, call her within a few days. Email, voicemail and text messaging do not count. Calling her as soon as he gets back to the apartment may be too soon, but any time later will be OK.

9. Even if she asks for the absolute truth, be careful about criticizing her appearance. If a guy builds a fence around the back yard and asks a woman, “What do you think?” he does not want her to check the plumb on every post and let him know how he might improve his fence building! He wants her to say that it looks good! Same with her appearance. Guys, be very careful of how you answer!

10. Be passionate about something – in addition to her. This goes back to leadership. Men should have a sense of what they want to accomplish and how they are going to do it. Share your dreams and plans with her. This is one area where it is OK for guys to talk about something at some length. Even if she does not share his dream, she will respect him for having one.

It is one of the problems in dating, that there are things that most women want and expect in a man that not all men understand. The rules of dating and behavior are being constantly rewritten and can seem confusing. The rules above have withstood the test of time and are as valid today as they were 200 years ago.

Dating Tips For Men

Dating Tips For Men was written by Jennie Crawford and she writes "Dating in todays society isn’t easy. Meeting prospective partners is difficult and almost everyone can use some reliable dating tips. The problem with dating tips is that they usually come from family and friends. These are people who already know and love you. They know how smart, funny and attractive you are. But they aren’t going to be dating you.

The most helpful dating tips can come from people who don’t necessarily know you. There are many online dating tip websites. Some are good and offer good advice and some are not so good. Do you really need to be told to just “be yourself” one more time? That is one dating tip everyone has heard way too often..

I believe that men can have it a little tougher these days too. Although women certainly can have a hard time finding that special someone, it is usually up to the man to make the first move. That can be intimidating. Approaching someone whom you don’t know can be a nerve racking experience. And when you add the lack of dating tips for men that are available and the fact that most of us are pretty clueless when it comes to attracting the opposite sex, it can seem hopeless.

Most men don't sit around swapping dating tips either. I'm not sure how many men discuss datin tips at all. It doesn't seem like a topic high on their list.

Dating tips for men are hard to come by. Most men would like to know how to attract a woman. Even if they aren’t the most handsome man on the block. Most women will tell you that looks are definitely not the most important thing, but most men don’t believe that. When you put all the misconceptions together, its not wonder that online dating has become so popular.

Womens emotions trigger feeling of attraction. This is why looks are not the most important thing. I f men could learn how to trigger all the emotional attraction switches in womens minds, they would see that looks are not everything. The best dating tip I can give to men would be to target a womans emotions first. How do you do that? Good question. Finding the answer to that question would almost virtually guarantee a man success with women. If men learned how to communicate with women the way they communicate, they could be very successful with women. Dating tips are one way of working on that. Copying what is successful is usually the best way to go.

Latin Loving With Online Dating

Latin Loving With Online Dating was written by Ivan Kelly and writes "Latin Dating offers many opportunities to experience the passion and romance often associated with this culture. Getting started can be especially challenging and here are some useful tips that will make your romantic ventures into the latin community easier and more enjoyable.

If you are interested in forming a relationship with a man or woman of Latin descent, you can take advantage of the facilities offered with an online community which is dedicated to helping singles meet Latinos in a comfortable online atmosphere. This offers the chance to meet your perfect match or simply find friendship. A community such as this is an excellent place to begin relationships, whether your interest is in marriage, companionship, or lasting friendship..

Naturally, these Latin communities also provide opportunities for you to set up the perfect romantic dating experience. Initially, one that both you and your date can enjoy without strings attached.

Latin online dating sites will normally include a number of features to help clients get to know other clients fairly well. For instance, you might expect to find presented in these sites:

Online profiles and photographs of Latin singles

Online chat rooms and an instant messenger that will allow communication in real time

An online private email box that allows participants to send and receive personal messages

An online forum that allows participants to post messages and exchange information

An FAQ section which makes it easier to get started by providing answers to common questions.

Once you've made contact, creating romance on your dates is greatly facilitated if you enjoy taking part in one, or more, of the following activities:

DINNER: The perfect choice for Latin dating. You can make this experience as casual or romantic as you want it to be. Make sure that you listen intently to your date, as the way you act during the meal can establish - or ruin - your new relationship. You might even take his or her hand across the dinner table. Make sure there is plenty of eye contact, and be open and honest, yet tactful, when you express yourself.

However, keep in mind that the other person may prefer the relationship to develop slowly and could be wary of early sexual overtures. If you sense discomfort in your date, back off. Good taste in romance means knowing when to draw the line. If you want the relationship to develop further - to become a Latin Lover - your date needs to feel relaxed and comfortable with you.

DANCING: At the heart of all good Latin dating is music - and dancing. Not only does dancing serve to stir the passions, it is also a tremendous icebreaker. It allows you and your date to touch and respond seductively to each other without any sense of commitment. And it's great fun!

If you're unfortunate enough to have two left feet, before you despondently buy a dog as a possible lifelong companion, consider:

WALKING: Nature's everlasting standby for the romantically inclined. Of course, it helps if you have magnificent settings, such as beaches, parks, waterfronts, mountains and valleys. But the real advantage is being able to just hold hands and talk on an evening stroll; perhaps admiring the sunset in silence, or gazing up at the stars. There's something about simple, natural beauty that evokes positive feelings and a romantic atmosphere, and Latins are by no means immune!

Whatever your dating intentions, keep in mind that traditions are an important part of Latin culture. So it's usually an advantage to be of the same ethnic background when it comes to understanding family relations - and being accepted by family members.

Nevertheless, the online Latin community is a fine place to start and allows you to explore possibilities you might otherwise not have considered. The facilities offered by these dating sites make it easy for you to set up a truly enjoyable experience, even romance.

Guide to Single Parent Dating

Guide to Single Parent Dating was written by Ron Zvagelsky and he writes "People can become single parents in many ways. First, a man or woman might become a single parent by choice. They might adopt a child on their own or a woman might become pregnant through donor insemination. Second, some people become single parents after the death of their spouse. Finally, most people become single parents as a result of a divorce.

Single parent dating might work best when both people have children. However, it is often the case where one person will have children when the other doesn’t.

So what should you know about dating if you are the single parent? First, realize that it is ok for you to be dating. You will be a better parent if you are happy and fulfilled in your own life outside of your children. Dating with children brings on additional challenges though. You will need to find a babysitter that you trust to watch your children. It is important that you tell your date upfront that you have children, as some people do not want to be in a relationship where there are children involved. It might be disheartening to lose a potential date because of your kids, but it is better to know that up front rather than be broken up with later because you are a parent. Make sure that you are comfortable with the person you are dating…very comfortable...before you let them meet your children. Children can become attached to someone quickly and if your relationship is not serious, your children probably shouldn’t be meeting the person..

If you are dating a single parent, remember that your partner’s children will always come first. If you try to demand a choice between you and the kids, you are likely to end up alone. Be sensitive to situations with the children that require plans to be changed or cancelled. A single parent has a lot on his or her plate and can’t help it if a child gets ill. Be sensitive to the fact that your partner is possibly not used to co-parenting. Don’t discipline your date’s children without first talking to your date.

Although there are some things that must be kept in mind when you are involved in single parent dating, it doesn’t mean anyone should shy away from it. People become single parents for all sorts of reasons and you might find the love of your life, plus fall in love with a child as well.

Online Dating Tip For Man 3 Tips To Guarantee You More Dates

Online Dating Tip For Man 3 Tips To Guarantee You More Dates was written by Ben Ehinger and he writes "Are you sick of sitting at home on Friday and Saturday? Do you want to find more dates online and have a chance at finding what you are looking for? Here are my online dating tips for man.

Men need to make a woman feel comfortable in order to get a date from an online meeting. Women are going to be skeptical at first and you have to be patient as you help them get over that skepticism.

Be honest with women online or you will never get past the first chat. You have to understand that sooner or later they will find out who you really are anyway, so just let them know now. Start by being honest with your profile and with your conversation..

It is important that you instill safety in the woman. Make sure she is comfortable with an offline meeting and meet her in a public place. Allow her to invite a friend along if she chooses. When you meet her, don’t be too pushy let her get to know you before you try to make any moves on her.

The best tip I can give you for online dating is to use only one dating site. There are many dating sites out there and each one of them is geared towards different things. Some want to help you find your soul mate and others just want you to be able to meet new people.

Use a site that fits your needs and wants. Find the site that will fulfill your desires and start meeting people now.

Are you ready to begin dating and become successful with online dating? Are you ready to become a dating king? Go to the following website for more information.

The Basics of Online Dating

The Basics of Online Dating was written by Ron Zvagelsky and he writes "Sad as it is to accept, the internet is filled with just about every sort of predator that can be conceived, and some that go beyond even that. There are some that feel that no one on the internet ever presents themselves as they really are, and this has scared many, and given online dating a rather bad reputation.

Everyone who spends anytime in the online chat world has heard stories that curl their toes. Lost among these horror tales, however, are those ever increasing numbers of couples who have found that online dating not only can be a very safe and satisfying form of dating, but also can lead to finding that “perfect” partner. The reason for this is easy to understand. When you seek a dating partner online you have the entire world, and literally millions of potential dates at your disposal. There are no limits set by geography; the globe becomes your own personal singles bar..

So, the answer for navigating through the dangers to take advantage of the perks is caution and common sense. Online dating is no place for the naïve and trusting. Safety precautions that would appear paranoid and extreme with a dating partner you met at your local Church social need to be the norm for any online date. You need to have a rather extensive list of red flags. One of the most important red flags is the reluctance of the potential date to respect your caution. You can be sure that anyone you meet online who shows a reluctance to take routine safety precautions has something to hide or an entirely different agenda.

There are now several online dating services that prescreen people for you, and this certainly helps, but do not get lulled in foolishness by them. Even prescreened people that are perfectly compatible according to “Perfect date every single time dot com” might turn out to be quite a bit different when they plop down in the chair across from you in the coffee shop.

The fantasy come true. A large party with a million single people is going on right behind your computer screen. They come in all sizes and shapes. They are older and mature, and they are young and wild. They live close by, or they live on the other side of the globe. They are all dying to meet you, and willing to date. Do not let the land mines stop you from taking advantage of this fantasy, but make sure you don’t step on one either.

Dating After Divorce

Dating After Divorce was written by Ron Zvagelsky and he writes "A couple of generations ago divorce carried a rather onerous social stigma. This made starting over almost impossible, but this is no longer the case in our society. This change has not come from a positive improvement, but rather the sad fact that divorce has become much too common. When you seek to begin dating after divorce you can take comfort from the fact that you are far from alone.

Knowing you have a lot of company, however, does not always make it any easier to begin. There are still a couple of pitfalls you are going to have to avoid. The main one is “letting go”. If you are seeking to date to teach your ex a lesson, or to get back at them, or really for any reason that in any way relates to your ex, you are not ready yet, and need to deal with that issue first. Stay on task here, you are not trying to change the past, but to enjoy the present, and maybe even begin the future. Put another way: make sure the door is closed before you open a window..

Another way you can let the past screw up your attempts to move on and get back into circulation, is to base your dating expectations on the qualities you liked or disliked about your ex. In other words, if you just divorced a tall one, don’t confine yourself to short ones in the hope you won’t make the same mistake again. Your potential dates certainly have a right to be judged on their own merits, and not by how they stack up to your ex. A little Golden Rule application here would be helpful. Remember your date is most likely “dating after divorce” too, and you wouldn’t want to be constantly compared either.

The most important thing to remember is you must not be hampered by a sense of failure. It is important to realize that the relationship failed, not you, and usually not your ex either. If you can not accept this, and approach the dating world free from an excessive amount of guilt, you might find a lot of dates, but you can be pretty sure you are not going to be a good date yourself. Start fresh, and start free, and be happy again. You most likely deserve it.
