There is no shortage of dating tips available for men and women. In this article, I am focusing on dating tips for women. I’m not a shrink or an expert, but I think these are some pretty common sense dating tips for women over 30 that if they are followed will greatly increase any woman’s chances of finding happiness and love. Ignore them at your own peril!
Every woman is different, and every woman has different wants and needs in a relationship (are you listening to guys) and only you can determine what your ‘perfect’ mate will be. Now is your time to shine. Whether you are single out of choice or because of circumstances beyond your control, take control and enjoy this time of your life. It may well end up being much better than you would have thought possible.
Are you trying to land the perfect guy? Are you looking for someone who will truly commit to you? If so, follow these 9 Hot Dating Tips For Women.
1. Get rid of the baggage.
Everyone has some baggage, and the older you are it’s likely the more baggage you have. Don’t think of it as being bad, it’s made you who you are today. But it is time to stow that baggage in the overhead bin so it doesn’t fall out and hit you on the head when you run into some turbulence. Live, learn and move on.
2. Don’t bring up an ex on an early date.
Ignore this dating tip at your own peril. If you talk about an ex on one of your first dates, he is going to conclude that you either are not over your last boyfriend or that you are bitter. In either case, he is not likely to want to get involved with someone who still talks about an ex.
Instead, focus on the man you are with. Find out what he is interested in and what makes him tick. Men are very selfish. They want to talk about themselves, not the last guy you were with.
3. Be yourself
Too many women try to “impress” a guy by being someone they are not. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to keep up the façade. Instead, you are likely to revert to being yourself. But if you have led him to believe that you are someone else, he will feel tricked. While you want to put your best face forward, you ultimately have to be comfortable in your own skin.
4. Don’t talk about the future too soon.
One of the biggest dating tips for women is to not project a guy you are just getting to know into the future. You shouldn’t bring up your desire for marriage and children on a first date! Beyond that, don’t start fantasizing about “happily ever after,” because you will soon work these dreams into your conversations with the new guy. Instead, have fun and enjoy the guy’s company. If things seem compatible after a length of time, you still have time to work on the “relationship.”
5. Accept compliments
This scenario happens over and over. A man meets a woman and says the first thing on his mind, “you look nice.” The woman blushes and starts to explain just how much is wrong with the way she looks.
The hairdresser messed up the cut, the blouse she wanted to wear was at the dry cleaner, and so on. Guess what? He doesn’t care! He just thinks you look nice. The only proper response to a compliment is “thank you.”
6. Have opinions
Too many dating tips for women stress that you should always agree with your date. Nothing could be farther from the truth. It doesn’t bode well to fall for a guy who only wants a sycophant. In the long run, you are going to want to be with a man who is strong enough to accept your opinions.
In fact, you want someone who will value your opinions and look to you for advice. If you don’t have this, the relationship will be unsatisfactory to you. So, don’t start the relationship by pretending that you don’t have any opinions.
7. It’s high time you stop worrying about what other people will think.
Who gives a crap what your great aunt Sally will say if you date a younger guy (or a younger girl for that matter). It’s your life and you have the right to live it to the fullest. Figure out who you are, what you want and don’t settle for less.
8. Don’t restrict your dating to only your local establishments.
There is a great big internet just filled with lots of very attractive fish. You don’t have to limit yourself to just your little pond (do go slowly though when meeting someone online. Take time to get to know them before you meet them for a date by talking on the phone. When it is time to meet, meet. Don’t let them come to your house).
9. Do not change who you are to accommodate someone else.
You don’t need to. The only things you should ever change are the things that you really aren’t satisfied with. Don’t talk yourself into believing that you should change X, Y or Z when in reality you know that the only reason you want to change is to please someone else. They either love you for who you are or you will find someone who will!
Ladies, it’s your time to shine. Live your life to the fullest. We are lucky because we are no longer burdened with all the rules that once governed so much of our lives. We are free to express ourselves fully and richly, so go for it.
