Top 12 Dating Tips

Follow these tips to get you from ‘Hello’ to ‘I Do!’


Dating doesn’t have to be a guessing game. Here are 12 dating Do’s and Dont’s to make sure you get your man – and keep him:

Top 12 Dating Tips

1.  Make a top 10 non-negotiable list of the things you want in your man.

Put them in priority sequence using four categories: spiritual, physical, emotional and mental. You may only have two physical quirks like hair and height on the list, but not more. Chemistry is the only thing that is a given so it does not need to be added to the list. Keep this list in your wallet at all time. If a man does not have all 10 things on your list do not step off the curb to date him no matter how handsome or rich he is.

2. Make a plan of action. What are you doing every week to meet your mate?

You should have at least one event, party or place, to go to meet quality eligible men each week. Location, location, location! Research where men of your type hang out, and go there alone.

3. Always date a pair and a spare. You must always date three men at a time.

The first man is the front-runner on your list, the second one you are not sure about and the third one is the one who most likely will become a friend that you feel comfortable with. This enables you to fill up your time by being so busy that it takes your mind off the one you really want.

4. Marketing 101…package yourself in a sexy way.

Looks do matter! After all, would you date a man who you felt was physically unappealing? Well magnify that ten fold and now you are in the mind of the male prey. They want the cheerleader they got or did not get in high school. Do you have to be a model to magnify them to you? Hell no. But you must be in shape, and less is more when it comes to make up.

    Dating is really fun especially the first date. I always get nervous and excited at the same time ? These tips are great — I like to have a guidebook of sorts to follow. It makes me feel safer, like I’m on the right path. This will be my dating bible from now on!

    Even if you’re not dating true love will come to you at an unexpected time. I met my man once I gave up on dating. I went out with so many awful men that I got sick of it. I think my friends took pity and that’s why they set me up. Worked out in the end!

    Don’t use dating as an excuse for sexual adventure and sexual conquest… that’s not the real purpose of it.

    These tips are great! I love that you tell us to date a pair and a spare! So nice to see that since most bloggers would call me a slut if I did that. LOL
