Do you want to meet your perfect match that will lasts for a long time?

Here are the men that you should not date:

  • Mr. Perfect – This man will really not work with you. You’ll just waste your time giving the best to him and still you will not be appreciated. He’ll just lessen your self-esteem. You should find someone who will appreciate the things you do. Say goodbye to Mr. Perfect!
  • Mr. Loser – This man has all the downs in the world – no car, no job, no prospects and no money. You’ll be the one who will support him, financially and everything. You don’t need a guy who you’ll feed with everything. He’ll just get everything from you – you, money, sex, everything!
  • Mr. Not Attracted to You – Why would you waste your time on someone who doesn’t even like you or not interested in you? Women want their men to be romantic.

  • Mr. Damaged – This man is a victim of heartache and still couldn’t move on. Don’t think of helping him recover in the past. Don’t get involved with a man who has past love issues. You might end up hurt and hoping with him. You could meet after the healing is done.

Dating Advice for Men

10Women worry a lot when it comes to dating but in reality, men also go through this stage just like they do. It’s not that easy for men too. Reading a book or article about women, dating and relationship might not help at all.

Here are some hints and advice that can help you:

  • Looks matters! So, try to look at your best on a date. Don’t arrive at your dating place looking dirty and unshaven. The worst thing you could do when going on a date is to turn up unshaven and looking dirty. I know you wouldn’t want your date to be appalled with your appearance.
  • Don’t be LATE. She will find you unreliable giving bad impressions on you.
  • Treat your date the way a woman should be treated. Make her feel special. For a start, you can give her flowers. Show the gentleman side of you: open the door for her or pull out her chair in your dating place.
  • Give compliment. Women love hearing compliments. Let her know that you’re attracted with the way she looks.
  • Since you want to get to know her, always listen to her. Show her that you’re interested to what she’s saying.
  • Be prepared for the date. Think about the things that you will talk about. You wouldn’t want your date to have a boring date with you.
  • During the date, you should offer to pay for the bills. In case she insists to pay, then you can split the bill to both of you.
  • Don’t ever kiss her goodnight that soon. Some women don’t want to be kissed on the first date, some expects that to happen. Kissing a woman on the first date will depend on the person and situation. Observing her body language will give you the idea of what to do.
  • Ask for her number before she goes home. Don’t tell her you’ll call her if you don’t really mean it. Don’t hesitate to tell that you like her and you’re interested on her. There might be a second date afterwards.
