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.

    I want to highlight tip #8 here. Ladies, we should have control and never ever do it on your first date, bec the guy might think that you’re too easy to get and worse you do it with all the men you date and you don’t respect yourself.

    Sometimes, dating also comes with a heartbreak. If you treat dating and love like a game, someone or both of you will end up the loser. It won’t hurt to get a few tips from an expert.

    Thank you Sarah for sharing these tips. Loved the article. I’ve been getting insights from different people about how a dating should go or what not, but this actually helped me realize that things may not work in your favor but having this as a guide can somehow help you gauge if the person you’re dating is goood for you.

    This is timely, because I’m currently dating this guy for weeks now and I’m just wondering how far this will go.

    Personally, Dating should not have any rules, but you should at least know your boundaries.
