Ladies can date like men too.
We noticed that men seem to have more freedom than women when it comes to dating, so itâs time to mix things up a little. If youâre a single lady on the dating scene, why not add a little testosterone to your technique?
Take a leaf out of his little black book with these five ways to date like a man:
Act like you own the place
Some men seem to bag a date in one confident sweeping motion and before we even notice, boom â weâre off on a date with this stranger. Just how do they do it? They seem to casually walk into the room, eye their prey, approach them, and Bobâs their uncle. It never happens in quite the same way when we spot a rather attractive man. The male secret to getting a date with the woman (or women) they like is by acting like they own the place to attract attention, before walking boldly over to their chosen lady for a chat. If you spot someone you like, donât wait for him to come over to you. Instead, approach the situation like a man and get yourself noticed by entering the room like youâre a (wo)man on a mission. Think posture, smiles, and eye contact and youâll grab his attention in a shot â now just walk over for a chat. Go you!
Play the field
Unless youâve lied to everyone youâve been dating about your single status, thereâs really no reason to feel guilty if youâve been on a few dates with other men. Itâs not fair for women to feel like they need to settle down with someone theyâve been on one date with; this defeats the object of dating. To date like a man, donât worry about what others think or say. As the saying goes âyou may have to kiss a few frogs before you find your princeâ, and if this is the case for you, play the field. Men would run a mile if they felt like they had to marry the first woman they went on a date with. In fact, they probably wouldnât date at all. To date like a man, leave your feelings of guilt at home and just enjoy the company of those who are lucky enough to date you!
Hide your emotions
When was the last time you saw a man pouring his heart out to a woman heâs been on a few dates with (aside from the drunken one falling out of the club)? Never?Â Shocker. If you like a gentleman after a few dates, hide your emotions to keep him guessing â the chances are heâs doing it too. When youâre chatting, be careful with the questions you ask and donât make it obvious if youâre checking him out as potential marriage material. No matter how much he likes you, he will never show his emotions when youâre still in the dating zone. Never.
Donât think about what youâre wearing
We spend so long worrying about looking classy and sexy and demure and attention-grabbing and… phew. Take a moment to gather your thoughts and then gather together the first clothes you see in your wardrobe. Voila â thereâs your date outfit sorted. Men donât worry about having heels that match their dress, or lipstick to match their clutch bag (itâd be a bit strange if they did) so neither should we.
Once youâve mastered the art of dating like a man, there will come a time when youâll find the man of your dreams who youâd like to settle down with. In this case, donât feel guilty about ditching the other men youâve been dating. Tell them the truth and donât look back. Once youâve narrowed it down to one special man, donât be afraid to be selfish; find the perfect balance between seeing him and having your own hobbies. You may have had to kiss a few frogs and resort to a few manly tactics, but you certainly found your prince.
