36 and dating again - Love and dating advice for women

How can you turn an awkward first date with the man of your dreams into the relationship you’ve dreamed of?

But exactly how do you find out without asking him outright and getting a look like you’ve just asked him to marry you?

Never empty your glass – You might be shaking like a leaf and nothing would settle your nerves more than to knock back the glass of wine on your table, but trust me, it’s not worth it.

If you want to stay in control of the date and keep him interested then take it easy and don’t overindulge.

If your date becomes your boyfriend then there will be plenty of opportunities for both of you to let your hair down.

But a guy will most likely be a little scared if you knock back a few shots before dinner.

Think carefully about inviting us back after a first date – Yes, we might well ask you but that doesn’t necessarily mean we want you to say yes.

A kiss on your doorstep is enough to reassure us that you are interested but if you invite us in for the night we will start to wonder if this happens to every guy you date.This is a bit of a subconscious thing with men, and although we think we want to spend the night at your place after a first date, in the cold light of the morning after we will be relieved that it didn’t happen.Forget Facebook – If you want to let your friends know how much you loved that latte on the way to work this morning, or share a photo of the most adorable kitten playing a guitar that’s well and good.But do you really want a guy you just met to see all those old photos you’ve been tagged in?Do you really want him to know why your boss upset you so much today or how much weight you want to lose this year?Retain a bit of mystery and avoid sending him a friend request until you’ve got to know each other better. Pay attention to the introductions – We guys are extremely territorial (even though we may not know it) and once we’ve come to the conclusion that this is the woman we want, we’ll start saying things like “This is my girlfriend, Sarah”.
