Some Good Dating Tips

Every once in a while, I read dating tips just to give myself new ideas on how to approach dating. Not long ago, I found this article on women's health mag. It is a good read and I highly recommend that you check it out. Here are some of the tips in the article that I found especially helpful.


1. Don't Play it Cool

To this day, I still see many women who think that playing "hard to get" is a good dating strategy. In most cases, it is not. According to the article, being kind and responsive is a much better tactic that most men prefer and appreciate. So if you're in the habit of being cold on first dates, you should rethink your strategy and practice being warmer on your first encounters. It could make a huge difference in how people respond to you.

2. Don't Ask Your Friends About Your Date Until You Know Them

There is a danger is showing pictures of your new love interest to friends too soon, since their opinions could color your own. Instead, it's a good idea to get to know the other person, and form your own opinion before getting feedback from friends. That way, any opinions your friends express are less likely to sway your opinion too much.

3. Choose the right dating site

Some dating sites are geared toward marriage, others for a quick hookup. Make sure you're using the right dating site if you want to connect with the right people.

If you are taking the "one size fits all" approach to online dating, a good, general dating site to consider is (if you don't mind paying a monthly fee) and Okcupid (if you want to use a free dating site). Of the two, I find to be a much better site. While it does cost money, you can try the site using a free trial first, which is currently available from this page on

If you choose to use Okcupid instead, just be aware you are using a site geared toward people who love freebies. This could have implications on the type of people you meet, and the kind of dates you will go on.
