Girl dating advice blog
I don't usually give dating advice to women, but recently two of my female friends have been asking me a lot about dating, so I figured I'd consolidate some of the stuff we've been talking about here.
Some of this stuff will apply to men, too, but for once I wanted to focus on the female perspective.
After university, it may happen at a work place, but it's otherwise often difficult to form casual friendships with members of the opposite gender after university years.
As a man, I really like the second last paragraph, totally agree with it. There ARE certainly valid criticisms of pickup, but Randall took a cheap and inaccurate shot at it.
Many guys complain about how their girlfriends or wives restrict their freedom, so a guy who isn't in that position is constantly reminded how lucky he is.
Your goal as a partner should not be to hold on to him no matter what. Rules, threats, ultimatums, and bargaining will never keep a good man.
Rather than leave it to chance, spend time in places where guys you like might be. Once you're on a date, realize that you don't owe the guy anything other than to show up. It's rude to leave, but ruder to make someone feel uncomfortable.
You can also go approach guys, and guys tend to think this is amazing, but just showing up in places where guys you might be interested in are should be enough. And if the date isn't great, don't go on another date.
@Sarah, In the US, meeting as friends first is typical through the university years.
Women are often attracted more by personality than appearance, so the initial screening process is more difficult.
However, personality can be sized up reasonably accurately quickly.
There are two primary issues for women to deal with in dating: the first is sifting through the masses of men who will present themselves, and the second is keeping the man once they begin dating.
The other parts, the parts that are hard for men, are easy.
