Date tip - shut up
If you are wondering why you never go on second or third dates, but are attractive, educated and so forth then it is probably because you lack the ability to hold a conversation – if this is true SEEK HELP IMMEDIATLEY!
I’m probably beating a dead horse here, but it seems that even though most people know this, they have forgotten that a conversation involves two or more people conversing – not one. If you want to impress someone, talking about yourself all night is not the way to do it. Nor should you only ask questions and put everything on your date’s shoulders, which is just as boring.
If you are asked a question, try and keep your response to less than ten minutes – we are not looking for your entire history on the subject. Ask questions in return. Try not to talk about ex’s – we all have them, and we are all guilty of this but it can be really boring, a huge turnoff and very dangerous. To many drinks and the next thing you know your ranting about what a jerk they were and how they cheated on you and left you for someone half your age, and… oops, sorry – I’ll stop now. Read anything; books, newspapers, the back of your cereal box – this will make you a more interesting person and will help your vocabulary. It’s true, I promise. And drink a lot, this will loosen up both you and your date, if they are too drunk then they won’t remember, or won’t really be listening closely in the first place (kidding). Cheers.
