My Top Five Dating Tips
Written by Nicole | February 7, 2011
Tip #1: Be yourself!
Don’t compromise who you are in order to be accepted by the one you’re trying to win over! God made you completely unique with your own special qualities, your unique traits, the way you look! Don’t trade in your values and your character for your date. He or she – if they’re worthy! – will accept you completely as you are. If they don’t, move on to the next!
Tip #2: Don’t settle for anything less than God’s best!
Recognize what you want in a boyfriend or girlfriend. What type of character does she have? Is she easy-going, intelligent, and adventurous? Does he have a love for animals like you do? Does he have strong family values? Don’t waste your time with anyone who doesn’t treat you with utmost respect. You deserve the best!
Tip #3: Compliment each other!
Many people are quick to point out what their boyfriend or girlfriend did wrong, how they wish they would change, etc. If your partner is doing something good and you like it, make sure they know! Tell them or write them a nice note. Your thoughts can’t benefit your loved one if you don’t express them.
Tip #4: Stay passionate about your life!
If you keep your primary focus on yourself and making the most of your current circumstances and trying to be the best person you can be by staying active in the things you love to do, your date will see that and be that much more intrigued by you. So go out and get going!
Tip #5: No regrets!
Remember: what happened in your past is not nearly as important as what happens in your future! If you didn’t treat your ex as nice as you could have or whatever you think you wish you did better or differently – focus on what you want to do differently in the future. Use your past as a learning experience. Make a vow to yourself that with the next person you date – you’re going to be the ‘best you’ ever!
