Dating etiquette old fashioned
Some tips may be obviously bad, such as “bring your mother to a first date,” or “definitely wear parachute pants on a date to an upscale restaurant.” However, some of the advice you’ll find will seem fairly sound.
You certainly don’t need to blurt out, “TELL ME NOW IF YOU DON’T WANT KIDS,” on a first date.This is cruel and deceitful and could lead to problems If this is a first date enquire delicately to elicit information about likes and dislikes; values and expectations; interests, dreams and aspirations At each subsequent date widen the field of your enquiry in a casual conversational manner while also imparting more information about yourself Avoid bragging and talking too much about anything, especially yourself Turn the conversation around to get your date’s views and contribution to the subject Keep the conversation light and try to have fun together Use humour, but don't overdo it Keep it clean Don’t lie to your date Ask before you smoke Non-smokers sometimes cannot abide smokers breath or are allergic to cigarette smoke Definitely don’t smoke during the meal It is bad etiquette to enforce your own rights over the comfort of others.Don’t do it Do not have unreasonable expectations of your date Remember – dignity and respect Do what is expected of you and not what you want to do Do not force intimacy.The rules are basically the same for teens, the middle aged and seniors, first date or last date, girls or guys Primary rule – girls and guys, treat your date with dignity and respect; this applies to online dating as well Don’t know what dignity and respect are? Broaden your vocabulary beyond a few repetitive expletives No drunkenness.
Being stoned or wasted only gets a laugh from your yobbo mates at your expense Act like a lady or gentleman. It must come from the heart Be that way during your first date right until your last and see what a difference it will make to you, your date's and your life Do not expect your prospect to be available for a date at short notice Ask a few days in advance of the proposed date Set a meeting time and if possible an ending time If the person cannot or will not be available for a date at the second request – they are not interested Don’t push the issue.
Move on Guys usually initiate the first date or two (it is OK for the girl to initiate it if they are already good friends) after that either may do so Whoever initiates it – plan to have at least one alternative place to go to or of what to do Give the other person time to think about it and perhaps come up with other options Discuss it with dignity.
