Greg’s Dating Tips – What NOT To Do
I have many female friends that ask me what men DON'T like. Here are a few of my experiences… and most men will agree. Keep in mind this is for new relationships.
Inviting your new guy to a wedding is like stripping him naked, dragging him through glass and dunking him in a swimming pool full of lemonade! In your mind it seems like a great opportunity to meet the family (wrong). Meeting Aunt Sally, Uncle Danny and Drunk Cousin Steve at a wedding is a really bad idea. Think baby steps when introducing your new man. I have had to do this three times and refuse to do it again… You're killing me Smalls!
Twice I have shown up for a date and was thrown into “meeting the kids.” Really? Don't you think I have a say in this? Never! Ever! introduce your children unexpectedly. Most men will understand if it's your weekend with them. I'm trying to get to know you in the beginning. Meeting the kids will come later… much later.
Let’s Go To Dinner!
Dinner, drink, beautiful lady… it doesn't get much better than this. I'm looking forward to great conversations and a good meal. Waitress: “Can I take your order?” Me: “Yeah, I would like the salmon dinner with fresh veggies.” Waitress: “And for you miss?” Sweetheart: “I would like a salad ((crickets chirping)).” Really? First of all, I know you DO NOT eat salads at home! The hips don't lie! I refuse to pay for $20 salads! What part of “eat” do you not understand? Be yourself! Now, grab that turkey leg and chow down.
Gossip or Useless Information
Keep in mind “less is more” when telling a story or about your day. We really don't need to know EVERY detail. Try to get to the point ASAP! A good rule to remember: do it in three minutes or less. If we want more information we will ask. If we don't? Umm, the subject needs to end. Move on to the next subject. Gossip? Have fun with that. Most men don't want to hear it! Unless it's about your really hot coworker :-)
