Dating Etiquette - for men

When you go on a date there are certain ways you should behave. Of course you want the person to get to know you so you shouldn’t try and be someone that you are not. When you go out on a date you should look and dress nicely. This will show the other person you care about your appearance but you also care about what they think about you. If you don’t care about what the other person thinks then you probably shouldn’t be going out on a date with them.

You should remember to be polite and considerate and open doors for your date if appropriate. If the woman you are going out with is a feminist, she may not much like that so let her open the door for you, and do things for herself or it will bother her. It is normal these days if you go for a meal to share the cost. If you are not going on a date with an independent woman, there's no need to pamper to old fashioned ideas of how a 'gentleman' behaves. But don't act the lout either, women are never impressed. It's a good idea to have enough money or cards to cover the cost just in case she has come out with nothing!

Dating etiquette also includes not making the other person feel as if they are in an interview. It is common for people on a date to ask too many questions, just as a means of helping the conversation flow, and because they want to get to know the other person. However, don’t make them feel as if they are being interviewed as this can make people nervous and you might scare them off. Be sure to create a comfortable atmosphere. Jokes, as long as they're clean and appropriate, are a great ice-breaker and women love a funny man who makes them laugh, so you will be immediately giving pleasure. Simple friendly courtesies and lack of pushyness or or overt sexual signalling will get you a long way. When she is receptive to something more, she'll let you know. And the word no really does mean no.
