Things That One Should Know About Online Dating

What a strange title for an article, I write online dating advice so why would I encourage people not to read it?

Clearly I believe there is some good dating advice on the internet or I wouldn’t waste my time writing dating advice and tips but I want people to think about what they are reading and who the author is before they take anything they read as gospel.

Here are 5 things to carefully consider before you take the advice of dating “experts”.

1. Everything written is an opinion from someone with a given history. Just google “article writing+fee” and see how many people in countries like India offer to write articles for website owners for a fee. India is simply one example but life there is somewhat different on the dating scene and their knowledge may well come from watching re-runs of Baywatch and Dallas. Check who is writing the website content, do their articles all sound as though they are written by the same person, are they writing from a personal perspective and if so what is their dating history?

2. The words “expert” and “guru” are over-used and I rarely read advice from anyone calling themselves either. What qualifies someone as an expert at dating? If they have been constantly dating for 30 years then they either have commitment issues or are very bad at dating. Just take Dr Phil, would I read his advice on how to have a long and happy marriage? Absolutely but would I read his advice on dating in your 40′s in 2008? What does he really know about the current dating scene, he isn’t dating.

3. Dating advice that includes comments like “I can make you attractive to men/women even if you are fat and ugly”. Would you go into a clothes shop and accept advice from a shop assistant that called you fat and ugly? I doubt it, so why would you accept being insulted simply because it’s online. False promises of making you attractive to the opposite sex rely on your lack of confidence in order to get you to buy their book or video or whatever they are selling. Take advice from people that respect who you are and aren’t desperately trying to sell you something.

4. Beware of the bitter and twisted. Blogging is a platform for many types of people but that includes those that simply want to rant about their bad experiences. There are many dating blogs that simply catalogue a serious of disastrous dates, call men names and generalise about the opposite sex, particularly written by women in their 40′s but I have yet to read one that stops and asks herself if perhaps she is the problem. Avoid these blogs, they usually have no real constructive advice to offer.

5. The ones that state “I am the same as you so my advice is best for you”. Don’t just read advice from people of the same age, gender and situation, much can be learned from reading the thoughts of the opposite sex and older people that have been there, done that and bought the t-shirt. If you are recently divorced then don’t read advice by someone who is also recently divorced and trying to date again, find a writer that has been divorced, began dating again and is now in a long term relationship they have the experience you want to hear about.

The Best Dating Tips You Should Know

by Ed Yourdon

In the context of dating, there are a lot of things that you should know and here are some of the best dating tips that can help you have a good start in the dating scene.

One of the best dating tips you should know is to never be late on a date and dress appropriately. This goes for both men and women alike. Of course, who would want a date who is slower than a turtle and dressed up as if you’ve just gotten out of bed fifteen minutes before call time? It could be a little justifiable if you’re a couple of minutes late and enter the restaurant door with a dress to kill. That could suffice the waiting time you’ve dealt with your date. Especially if it your first date, remember that first impressions always last. So, prepare for it.

Secure your finances. Most especially of you are a man, you can impress a woman by showing her that you are independent and you are a responsible man. Show her that you are able to support yourself as this gives her the notion that you are capable of supporting her as well, just in case the two of you end up in front of the altar. You have to get her respect by showing her that you have a stable job and that you can perfectly handle yourself well without living inside your mother’s purse.

Forget about your vices and addictions. Smoking and drinking are major turn offs, so get rid of those. If you cannot get rid of smoking, limit it and try not to smoke when you’re on a date. However, do not hide the truth about your vices. Tell it straight to your date that you do smoke, but assure her that you’ll try your best to avoid and eventually quit. The same idea goes with drinking. In fact, you can even ask help from your date to bug you each time you get the urge to hold a cigar or get a bottle of beer. This is actually a kind of sweet gesture.

Know her interest and try to hook yourself up with it. Not all women loves sports topic, so leave that subject with your friends. Ask your date the things that interest her and try to jive with her. You may not like all the things that she like, but at least show her that you are interested in knowing that things that she likes.

These are just some of the best dating tips you must keep in mind. If you really want to nail a good relationship, you should be natural in doing all these tips. Do not let it appear as if you’ve just read it over the Internet or in a book. Do it as if it came from your own perspective and all the good things will just come in handy.

STOP!

7 Things You Should Not Talk About On The First Date

Category: Dating Guidesadmin @ 5:57 am

by Mink

First dates are nerve-wracking and if you don’t know that topic to talk about, you might end up in an awkward [if not embarrassing] situation with your date. Women should be tactful when going out on dates may it be the first or the 3rd date with the same guy. The first date is an important time to get to know each other to establish the initial trust and openness. A wrong impression will always last, especially if it was made verbally.

Here are 7 stingy topics you should avoid:

1. Don’t talk about your exes

It is downright rude and insensitive when a woman talks about her ex for comparison’s sake on a first date. The guy would feel bad about having to date you because your mind is obviously still fixed on a past relationship. Even if you want to compare your ex to your current date, just keep the thought to yourself and talk about a more significant topic like your date’s hobbies and interests.

2. No politics, please!

Even if politics can be a good topic to discuss, it’s better left off alone or discuss any political issues vaguely without elaborating you opinion. A first date is not the best time for debacles and debates about political issues and views. Keep the atmosphere casual and inviting in order for your date to remember you better.

3. Let’s talk about sex…Not!

Even if sex may be inevitable on a first date for some women, but please, try not to talk about this sensitive topic. You may look and sound desperate when doing so and you could lose a potential long-time relationship if you talk about sex right away. It may be normal to have sex when you’re already dating him steadily and for a long time, but talking about it as early as the very first date is a major turn off for most guys. You’ll either lose his respect or you may end up together briefly just because of physical reasons.

4. Avoid talking about religious faiths

Although religion or faith is an important matter to both man and woman, talking about it on a first date can either make or break a possible relationship. Religion is an important factor and most couples need to be compatible with this aspect of their lives in order to keep the relationship harmonious.

5. Don’t talk about showbiz gossips, most men hate it

No matter how much you love Brangelina, your date won’t get it. Talk about those celebrities with your gal pals since they can understand where you’re coming from. He might even think that you’re out-of-touch with reality if you keep on thinking and talking about Hollywood celebs instead of your hobbies. So keep it real and let him know the person that you are instead of talking about other people’s lives.

6. Avoid talking about marriage at this stage

You don’t want to send your date running off with topics like marriage, wedding planning, engagement and things associated with marriage. You only talk about marriage with a guy who has been with you for a long time. Don’t ruin your initial meeting by bombarding him with this very serious topic.

7. Money may be an interesting topic, but it’s a big NO-NO during a first date

Even if it’s tempting to ask for his salary or how much credit limit he has or how much debt is he in, it is best to discuss this once you end up in a relationship with this guy. The first date should be a fun and social way of getting to know him as a person.

Remember that when you out on a first date, the guy you’re with may also be stressed and anxious about the things that you might ask him. Put him in a more comfortable position by talking about topics that are beneficial to both of you such as your interests, hobbies and life experiences. Giving your date this initial favor can garner you a second, third or even more dates to come because he will find you a wholesome, trustworthy and fun lady to be with.

The One Free Online Dating Advice You Should Never Forget

Category: Online Dating Adviceadmin @ 1:57 pm
online dating advice
by Thomas Hawk

Ladies, ladies, ladies. I’m afraid you have some harsh words and free online dating advice coming your way. Mind you, it’s free online dating advice, not free relationship advice – for even I tread lightly there; in other words, I am no expert. But I am an expert when it comes to dating as a single mother, and I am about to impose very stringent guidelines.

I am freaking out because of the following bit of news: a 24-year-old Oregon man has been convicted of murder – murder by abuse, sexual abuse and unlawful sexual penetration – of a two-year-old girl. He also physically abused the girl’s three-year-old brother. The children were his girlfriend’s. He was babysitting the poor little tykes while the mother was out of town.

This is sickening stuff, and in my opinion this mother deserves a swift kick in the pants for – literally – criminal negligence. She neglected to find out that her boyfriend was a criminal before she trusted him with her children! Mind you, I am trying not to judge – we’ve all been there as single mothers. Nobody is perfect and we’ve all made mistakes. But thankfully not the kind that cost us our children’s lives, right?

This is yet another hard lesson for all of us: don’t ever let anyone near your children, unless you have thoroughly investigated him (her) and know he (she) isn’t capable of harming a defenseless child. Just like in many other child sex offender cases, there must have been preceding incidents in this man’s criminal records, which perhaps didn’t end in murder but were precursors to this tragedy and would have alerted the mother. This woman didn’t do her homework.

So, my free online dating advice to you, single mothers, is don’t even attempt to go on a date without making sure this man will not mistreat your children. Let’s face it, once we get close to a new man, our rosy glasses are on, and he is the prince charming who can do no wrong. So while you still have your common sense about you, get that man checked out, girlfriends. One can always find another date – it’s not worth losing a child.
