I’ve read a ton of posts on dating, written by women, for women, but I haven’t come across that many dating posts written by men for women...

I’ve read (and I’m sure you have too) many posts on dating, written by women, for women, but I haven’t come across that many dating posts written by men for women, containing valid advice on dating from the male standpoint.

Have you always wondered how the opposite sex experiences the dating world?

If we do something that you like or impresses you, please let us know, we feel better with positive feedback.” - Makes sense, everyone likes positive feedback so don’t be afraid to let your date know what it is that he does that you like or that impresses you. Keep it light and casual while giving him positive reinforcement to let him know that you do appreciate his efforts.

If we’re not into you, and you keep contacting us… we feel it’s OK to waste your time.” - Crassly put, if he’s not that into you - let it be. Men, like women, love positive attention and will keep coming back for it even if they are not really interested in a serious relationship with you. So, if you feel that a more casual relationship is a waste of time, don’t chase after the man that isn’t interested, chase after the one that is.

No matter how much we like you, there are some things we can’t handle in the beginning of a new relationship, so keep it casual.”- We all have our issues, and it’s not dishonest to allow a guy to get to know you and gradually become familiarized with your hiccups. Try and avoid the ‘heavy’ conversations, the earth-shattering reveals till later in the relationship, there are some conversations that are less suited for the second date.
