I've personally read and heard a lot of this advice, but what I think is the most helpful when it comes to dating isn't giving and getting prescriptions -- it's asking and answering questions.
To me, being self-aware is the first step in becoming a successful dater, and ultimately finding the right person.
Instead, spread them out over a few dates, starting off with the really casual questions on the first date, and then making them more personal or intimate. - What qualities would you look for in your partner? - If you had a million dollars, what would you do with the money? - Which, according to you, is the most romantic musical instrument/language? - Arrange according to preference - sun, sand, snow? - What are your thoughts about marriage and religion? - Is there any goal/dream you have which you think cannot be fulfilled now because it's too late?
Try to keep the questions to a reasonable amount, say maybe 5 to 6 questions per date. - Does your first love still hold a special place in your heart? - If your partner wants to do something you don't particularly like/enjoy, would you do it with him? - Do you like going to the theater or for concerts? - Which is the one place you would like to visit/settle in?
What you have to realize is that asking questions is not the only way to get to know someone. - What's your biggest fear, and your biggest strength? - Which is the most beautiful place you've ever seen? Who was the lucky guy and are you still in touch with him? - If you get to be someone else for a day, who would you want to be? - Have you done something special for someone without their knowledge?
When it comes to dating, it seems you can find hundreds of thousands of websites, books, and people offering their tips and advice.
I'd like to know if I'm the only one he's dating or if I am one of many women in his life.
