Developing A Dating Relationship

Dating can be so confusing these days, do you pay for dinner or share? Do you wait for her to offer, do you open the door or let her do it herself. So many women these days want to be independent and to not be doted on or taken care of, but if you aren’t with a woman like that how do you know?

It’s hard to figure it all out and that is why you need to get these questions out of the way before your first date. Talk about how she feels about the guy opening the door, if she expects her dates to pay or if she likes to split the first date dinner/movie or what have you. Does she want you to pick her up at the door or meet you somewhere. What are her views on flowers and being walked to the door. You might want to tell a story about a friend of yours who took a girl out who didn’t like certain things or expected to be taken care of and get her thoughts on it without coming out and asking.

After the first date jitters are over and everything seems to be going great you need to make sure you keep them going good.

Here are some other tips you should know:

1.   Take time and make time. Does your date get in touch with you regularly? Do you do the same? Neglecting meetings can be considered abuse or neglect, so treat each other’s time with respect. If it’s lacking, might mean time to move on.

2.   Communication needs to “feel” right for both of you. If one of you is too pushy about meeting, for instance, that can give off bad vibes. So don’t rush. Take time to learn more about each other and develop trust.

3.   Respect each others privacy. Don’t share personal email addresses or digital photos online, for example, if your date sent you the information in confidence.

4.   Share special fun times. Online – send greeting cards, links to favorite places to upload digital photos of your favorite pet, download music and video clips, post on favorite forums of interest. Offline- if you’re exchanging addresses or post office boxes, send print greeting cards and postcards, small items from your area (like a key chain with your state bird).
