How to be More Dateable
By James Preece
If you want to be successful when you are dating, the only thing you have to do is to just be yourself. Obviously, there is no point pretending to be someone you are not as you won’t be able to keep things going if your story is based on lies. However, that is not the end of the matter.
If you are going to be yourself, you have to make sure that you are the very best possible version of “you”. You want to be attractive, fun and interesting. Here are my dating expert thoughts and advice to help you work out how to achieve this and have an amazing dating life.
Are You Aware Of Your Unique Selling Points?
When you want to buy any type of product you will naturally look at the unique selling points to find out what makes it better than the competition and what features does it have to make it really special? The same is true when it comes to choosing a partner. Everyone has a different personality and skillset that makes them unique. For example, perhaps you are great with children, an accomplished cook or can move like Jagger?
Get a New Wardrobe
One of the quickest ways you can instantly be more confident and dateable, is to simply go out and buy some new clothes. The very act of throwing away old, worn clothes symbolises that you are ready to make a fresh start. It’s important that you don’t just buy the same outfit you always wear, but something a bit different and up to date. Ask the salesperson in the shop about what’s currently fashionable and to get free advice.
Get some hobbies
If you don’t have much going on in your life, you might come across as a little bit boring and therefore, you should have a think about trying some new activities and learning some new skills. You won’t need to go far - just check out local options, for example, a cookery class or yoga group near you. Not only do they give you something to focus on but you never know who you might meet there.
Adventures are Waiting for You
When was the last time you did something a bit out of your comfort zone? It is only by seeing new places that you create memories and shape the person you are, so it could be a good idea to book a weekend away or perhaps go somewhere a little more exotic. Is there somewhere you’ve always wanted to visit but haven’t yet go round to it? Don’t let fear or time stop you from doing what you really would love to do.
There’s nothing worse that running out of things to say during a date. If you are well read, then you’ll be viewed as more intelligent and therefore more attractive as well. It doesn’t have to be the latest bestsellers, but check out the gossip magazines too. What is topical at the moment and who are the most popular celebrities? The more books and magazines that you read then the more talking points you will have to discuss.
I hope this article has made you realise how wonderful you are and given you some ideas to make yourself even better. If you’d like some advice about how to get more dates then please take a look at our dating advice website.
