Follow these dating dos and don’ts to master modern dating etiquette and you’re almost guaranteed to make a great impression.These dating etiquette tips can be followed on your first date or even your second and third.We all have anxieties, baggage, hang-ups, insecurities and skeletons.
It goes without saying that you should exercise basic table manners, which means you don’t start eating until both of you have your food and you don’t talk with your mouth full.
Also don’t bounce your leg nervously at the dinner table and remember to be courteous and generous to the waiter.
You’re not expected to agree with everything she says. Avoid the temptation to ramble on about yourself in an attempt to impress her.
She’ll be much more impressed if you ask her questions and demonstrate that you’re a good listener.
It is possible to talk about exes, but only if it’s clear that both of you want to go down that potentially bumpy road. Any more than that and you risk coming across as needy and lowering your status in her eyes.
You’re strongly advised however, not to sabotage your date with too much information, too soon. Repeatedly telling her how beautiful she is will make her feel that you’re not worthy of her, so don’t do it no matter how strong the urge!
If you’re picking her up, don’t drive too fast or openly display road rage.
If you happen to drive a convertible, don’t drive with the top down when it’s freezing cold outside just because you think it’s cool.
Make eye contact to show that you’re paying attention to her and avoid the temptation to stare at her breasts (no matter how good they look).
