It’s easy for any woman to go out on a first date or even a few dates. It is much more difficult for a woman to keep a man interested in her for the long term. Whether you are in the early stages of dating or have been dating someone for a long time, here’s the best dating advice for women, from a guy’s point of view.
How to Keep a Man:
• Act like a lady
While some men like a woman who is direct, strong and can “hang” with the boys; few men like to feel like they need to vie for the position in the relationship. Acting like a lady doesn’t mean in the old-fashioned way, it is 2012 so you can put your own spin and style to it and keep this in mind from the first date.
• Don’t keep him guessing
While a little mystery now and again is good for the relationship, if you keep a man guessing too much, it can and will agitate him. Some women would describe this as playing hard to get, in the long run a man will not trust a woman who plays this game.
• Consider what makes your man unique
While some women tend to think that all men think alike, no man wants to be treated as if he is part of a herd. If this comes out in your actions, he will soon feel like he isn’t special to you. You should value and appreciate him for the things that make him unique.
• Discussing feelings when he is ready
Let’s face it, it is difficult for men to talk about their feelings. For some men it is even more difficult than others. Should it come time to discuss your mutual feelings, let him know how you feel. If he avoids or changes the subject, give him some time to think. Let him know you will be there when he’s ready to talk. Just remember, there’s a fine line between being persistent and too pushy.
• Take his word
Some men may lie their way through dating but for the man who doesn’t, the worst thing you can do is to have him think that you don’t trust or believe him. When he says something, you should take his word for it. As you develop a history with the man, you will find trusting and taking his word for it are significantly more gratifying in the end.
Reaching the point of a long term committed relationship with someone is never easy. There will always be trials and tribulations, however if you both are willing to work with each other and understand each other’s differences the more likely you will survive in the long term.
