It’s a tough world out there, and sometimes it seems even more so when you’re going it alone without a romantic partner – but dating experts have recently come forward with some top tips when it comes to looking for love or just simply some companionship.
One of the most important things you can do is to keep a steady head on your shoulders when it comes to dating. Sure, it’s easy to get swept up in the moment when things are just getting started, but you need to keep your guard up at least a bit; getting physical too quickly or being too clingy or too available can sink a budding relationship all too easily.
Make an effort to not get so involved with your new partner that your old life gets left behind. Cutting off your old friends in order to spend time with your new special someone can backfire if your new relationship goes down in flames, and on top of that it’s just a rather sorry thing to do to friends that have been there for you through thick and thin, isn’t it?
It’s also important to not wait to the last minute to make plans or jump at every opportunity to spend time together. Men, don’t ring up your new girl on a Saturday night at 7 pm in order to make plans that evening – you should be setting things up a few days in advance at least. Likewise, if you’re getting that call at 7 pm, don’t jump out of your socks in your zeal to meet up; it makes you look desperate for attention, and no one wants that.
