– Close for a meeting This mainly applies to online dating.If you’ve received a message of interest, and you want to date, then your next message should be to ask for one.– Be clear, courteous, concise Think about your words before they tumble out of your mouth.
– Unless they want control, you take it Not all women want a man with a plan. It’s always a good idea to check in at the beginning of an engagement to see where she stands.
– Be open minded / Go with no expectations When dating, the key word here is; Fun.
Having fun means being open to whatever happens, and seeking intentionally to do things that are silly, irreverent and able to bring out the kid in ourselves. After all, we’re likely going to know in the first five seconds whether we have a chance of anything progressing beyond the date, regardless of the date itself.
I’m not saying that knowing where she went to high school might not be interesting, or learning that her sister lives in the same city you grew up isn’t serendipitous; I’m just saying it isn’t important.
Question her instead about her desires, her tastes, her interests, her work perhaps, her schedule and availability (to know when to ask her out again).
