Dating Advice: Top 5 Things Men Should Know About Dating …


As a man, we know it can sometimes be difficult to fathom what women are thinking and what they expect from you when dating. That’s why we’ve put together a selection of hints and tips from real women who want to give men a helping hand in how to behave when dating them.

1. ‘Call us back straight away’

We know you were told when you were a teenager that you should wait three days to call after dating a girl for the first time. Well we’re all sick of this rule now and will just get fed up and bored if we have to wait for you to play this game. Be a grown-up and call us by the next day or, even better, set up the next date during the first. Otherwise we’ll probably just move on.

2. ‘We are afraid of commitment’

There seems to be a general assumption amongst many men that the women they are dating are inevitably trying to guide them gently toward their end goal: full ensnarement in the form of marriage and children, as soon as humanly possible. Any evidence to the contrary is taken to be part of the overall plan to confuse and entrap our prey. This mentality can be very frustrating for those of us who genuinely don’t feel the need to get married (at least not yet). Many of us are just as frightened of long-term commitment as you are.

3. ‘Keep eye contact brief’

Eye contact the perfect first step if you see a woman you would like to get to start dating. But too long and it can be unnerving, because it feels as though we’re being watched. Keep eye contact as brief and as natural as possible, just enough so we think you might be interested, and then turn away for a bit. It gives us time to prepare to meet you and think over what we might say.

4. ‘We need reassurance’

Most women tend to take a lot longer getting ready than most men do, and perhaps, we admit, that can partly be put down to vanity. But the main reason we take so much time preening and dressing ourselves when dating is an innate and ingrained sense of self-consciousness, which most men, we think, genuinely don’t experience on anything like the same level. So we react extremely well to reassurance, about our looks, about are many talents, about anything, really. Keep the compliments flowing (and sound like you mean it) and basically we’ll be happy.

5. ‘We care whether you can dance’

It may be an old wives’ tale, but we’ve all heard the saying that you can tell what a man is like in bed by what he’s like on the dance floor, and a lot of us believe it. The idea seems to be that the two skill sets, both being physical, are intimately connected, so dancing can act as a virtual test run for what might be in store for us in the future. If you can’t dance and you’re dating, it could be a good idea to learn, if only to get beyond the disco dance floor and onto a second date.
