Dating Tips for Men
When was the last time you thought about manners? It was probably when your mother taught you a few things in grade school. Manners are the unspoken rules of social behavior, the way we stay within the lines. They are the guidelines men can use to either entice or scare away potential dates. Use proper manners, and you can open nearly any door you want. But display poor manners and doors will continue to slam in your face.
Unfortunately, many men fail to use etiquette to their advantage. If it’s been a while since you brushed up on your manners, don’t fret. Here are few rules of the game, provided to you by leading dating coach and founder of New York Socials, Marina Margulis.
Say Yes to Civalry
Chivalry is not dead and is greatly appreciated by women. Remember to be considerate and courteous, especially when talking to her. Look into her eyes, ask her questions, and compliment her. Pick her up for a first date, open doors, and walk her to the door or taxi. Small gestures go a long way.
Don’t Let Utensils Turn You Into A Brute
Imagine walking into a fine restaurant and not knowing which utensil to use for which course! The better the restaurant, the more forks and knives with which you have to contend. It will serve you well to read up on their use (luckily it is not that difficult!). A quick cheat tip: start with the utensil that is farthest from your plate and work your way toward the center of your place settings with each course progression.
Never Let Her See You Sweat
Whether a restaurant lost your reservation or a speeding cab splashed mud all over your new suit, never let a lady see you lose your temper. Women are put off by men that are easily rattled. A woman is looking for a rock that will not fold under pressure. Every woman wants a man who can hold his own in social settings, not someone she will have to groom and reprimand.
Balance is Everything
There is a fine line between confidence and arrogance. Women love assertive men, but not boars. -An assertive man is able to clearly articulate his wants and needs without being pushy or demanding. Think James Bond.
