How To Have Success In Dating
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

To have success you first must have a good idea of who you are most likely to get on with and be honest when you decide this. If you go on many dates then 50% of the people you meet won't be suited. This will make all your dates a complete waste of time. So stop and start looking at what kind of people you will get on with.

Try to be yourself and not who you think they want you to be. Don’t talk about yourself too much and listen to what your date has to say. Most importantly don’t lie, if you are out of shape and overweight with no career and a low income then that is what you must state though it may limit your chances. There might be someone who would appreciate your honesty and probably be in the same situation. Also don’t be bitter towards your ex partner because this will be a sign that you are not emotionally ready to move on and would be a turn off.

Make sure your online dating pictures are up to date you don’t want to turn up on your date looking completely different to your pictures. Try to stay local to your area as this will make dating easier in the long term. Long distance relationships can very difficult and one of you will have to make the decision to move away and look for a new job.

What are your expectations when you go on a date? Try not to expect too much on your first date and don’t put too much pressure on yourself. You may not have an instant attraction to your date and it could take some time to meet the right person but you could make some good friends while you are dating. So be realistic and expect little as this is the best way to go and sooner or later one of these dates could be your future partner.

Successful dates are the ones that are simple, casual and fun. Don’t come across as desperate or needy. This could be a sign that you need to take a break from dating for a while. Sometimes the best dates come along when you least expect it so try to see dating as part of your every day weekly routine and make it fun.

Follow these few steps and you will be on the way to meeting your new partner and a successful new relationship. Good Luck!
