Common-Sense Dating Tips Every Guy Should Know

Some tips on dating are esoteric, but a lot of them are common-sense tips that every guy should know. You know what they say about common-sense — it isn’t very. And even if you know 80 percent of what we’re about to tell you, that final 20 percent can be a huge game-changer in your dating life. So what are the things you need to know to make your dating life even better than it already is? Here are a few common-sense tips on dating to get you into the frame of mind.

Women Are Attracted to Confidence

It’s not just what they say: Science proves that women are more attracted to confident men than not. While guys who lack confidence are often intimidated by this prospect, it’s important to note that feigning confidence works about as well as actually feeling confident. Indeed, there are few places where “fake it until you make it” works quite as well as with getting your confidence up.

Money Isn’t Everything

We’re not going to lie: You already know that when it comes to dating, money can certainly help. But it’s not everything. In fact, if you’re trying to attract women, it’s far better to be a fun-loving, confident and outgoing poor dude than an anxious, self-depreciating and boring rich dude. Concentrate on what you have rather than what you don’t have. Play to your strengths. That’s going to go a long way toward giving you the kind of dating life you like. Which leads us to our next dating tip…

Women Are Less Interested In Your Looks Than You Are In Theirs

Men tend to think that looks are everything because we’re so concerned about them. But take what we said above in the last section: It applies as much to looks as it does money. Sure, good looks can help. No one is denying that. The broader point we’re trying to make here is that on their own, looks aren’t going to do much for you. What’s more, average or even bad looks can be overcome or at least compensated for with a decent wardrobe and a few trips to the gym.

Location, Location, Location

Having trouble meeting the right kind of women? Have you ever considered that maybe you’re looking for love in all the wrong places? Think about what kind of women you want to meet. Now think about where it is that they’re most likely to be found. Start going there. For example, joining an outdoor club is (big surprise) a great place to meet outdoorsy women. Think strategically about where you’re heading out to meet women and you’re going to have a much easier time finding the ones that you’re looking for.

Approach Her!

We have a lot of tips on dating, but this may very well be the most simple and the most important. Not winning the lottery? Are you even buying a ticket? When it comes to the world of dating, it’s important that men approach. Whether or not you think it’s right, it’s our social role as determined by millions of years of evolution. When you see a woman from across the room and you’re interested in her, it’s important that you approach her almost immediately after you notice her. Believe us when we say that she definitely noticed you noticing her. So stride over and chat her up. It’s probably the only way the two of you are going to meet.
