The Laws of Dating For Men

If you've been striking out on a routine basis, it's time to stop asking yourself what's wrong with all the women out there and start asking yourself what you need to do differently! Chances are, you are breaking one of the laws of dating for men. Take some time to brush up, and if you find that you're doing something wrong, there has never been a better time to correct it.

Dress Your Best

Leave the tuxedo and the three piece suit at home, but take some time to dress yourself with care. You'll find that you'll stand taller when you know that your outfit looks good, and it'll prove to the women out there that you know how to present yourself well. These two factors will help immensely when you're out and about, so make sure that you start off with this all-important factor.

Have Something to Offer

No, this doesn't mean diamonds or fancy dinners. Take a moment to make sure that you're up to speed on current events. At the very least, skim through CNN's webpage to make sure that you're not missing out on anything important. Nothing will turn a potential date off the way that ignorance will, and in general, this is an easy one to fix. Make it a habit to check the news before you head out.

Know Where You Are Going

This law for men does not, in fact, refer to asking for directions. Know where your life is going and what you want out of it. No woman wants to be with a man who has no ambition, so be ready to share some of your goals with her. You don't need to dominate the conversation with it, but simply knowing what you want out of life can be extremely attractive to a woman.

Be Adventurous....

... head out onto the dance floor! Even if you feel about as graceful as a fish on dry land, take the plunge, take her hand and head out to where the music is. If you don't know how to dance, ask her to teach you. This is a great way to get to know someone better, and it shows her that you're not afraid of embarrassing yourself.

Be Polite to the Waiter

Many shrewd women see how you treat the waiter as something that reflects on you personally; they know that if you are rude or impatient with the waiter, that means that you are rude and impatient in your regular life as well. Be friendly to your waiter and to everyone you meet in general.

No Expectations

You have the right to enjoy yourself, but not at the expense of your date enjoying herself. Don't walk into your date expecting anything more out of it than a chance to get to know her better. If she feels that you expect something from her, you can bet that you're not going to get it!
