Stay
tuned to find out why you should always wear something fluffy when meeting with
your crush.

You
might be surprised, as to why this simple trick works.

Try new experiences

Dating
is an experience, it’s scary, and it’s nerve-racking.

Most
people these days have turned to dating apps to help them meet new people.

From
tinder to bumble, it’s like a new dating app pops up every day.

But
chances are when you use these services, you aren’t going to find many people
who want serious relationships.

When
you meet a person on an app, you have no idea how they are in person.

You
have nothing to connect with, other than the fact that you both have the same
app downloaded on your phones to ensure that your date goes a bit smoother.

Try
to meet people in another way.

Join
a recreational sports team.

That
way you know that you at least have one thing in common, or you could try
joining a club that interests you.

By
meeting on common ground, even ensure that the two of you have at least one
subject to talk about, which will inevitably lead to more lively conversation.

Meeting
people this way, also takes away some of the stress of a first date.

You
already know the person from your club or sports meetings.

So,
there aren’t as many first date jitters as there are when you are meeting a
stranger off of an app for the first time.

And,
it is a much better story to tell your kids looking back that you met your
husband at a kickball practice rather than my swiping right, isn’t it?

Let your friends set you
up.

If
you’ve tried going out to bars to meet people then you know what a battleground
that can be, everyone in the room is looking for someone.

But
most guys, they aren’t actually looking for anything serious.

And,
if you do meet someone you like at the bar, you run the risk of having the same
problem that you would, if you had met them on an app.

You
don’t have anything to talk about?

Here’s
a pro tip to skip some of that awkwardness.

Let
your friends set you up with someone.

Then,
they have already done all the pre-screening for you.

By
letting a friend, match you with one of their friends, you avoid all the
weirdos out there.

Your
best friend isn’t going to send you out on a date with the person that you have
nothing in common with.

Is
she? Probably not.

So,
as far as the compatibility scale is concerned you were much more likely to
mesh then with a stranger that you picked up at a bar or on tinder.

Your
friends have your best interests at heart.

You
go to them for help in picking out outfits, why not dating help too.

Just
try it once, and i promise this will become your go-to method of dating.

Don’t smoke

When
it comes to dating and choosing a mate, smell is of the utmost importance.

After
all who wants to be with someone, if they have to plug their nose.

So,
if smell is so important, then it pretty much goes without saying that smoking
on a date is a no-no.

To
test this theory out, over 1,000 match.com members were surveyed.

The
participants included smokers and non-smokers.

57%
of those surveyed said, they would never date a smoker.

What’s
even more surprising is that, 60% of smokers even had reservations about dating
other smokers.

If
you are a smoker, then it’s probably best to just keep your habit at home and
not interrupt your date for a smoke break.

Not
only is leaving to go smoke quite rude, but it is also apparently a very big
turn-off even if the other person smokes.

They
still may not want a partner who does.

With
that being said, it’s probably best if even just in the beginning of the
relationship, you either try to cut down on the smoking, or quit altogether.

It
won’t just be good for your dating life, your lungs will also thank you, and
all your clothes will smell ten times better.

And
like i said, that could just make or break your potential relationship.

Don’t ask too many questions

When
going on a date with someone, it is important to get to know them.

You must
make sure you aren’t sitting across the table from a serial killer or a guy
who’s already in a relationship.

Naturally,
when we are trying to get to know someone, we ask lots of questions.

Well
studies have actually shown that asking too many questions on a first date
could actually backfire on you.

Researchers
at stanford university wanted to test what made dates go well, and what made
them tank.

So,
they analyzed almost 1,000 4-minute speed dates.

They
found out that, if you asked too many questions, your date may not like you as
much as they normally would.

The
studies show that the couples who asked more questions during the date felt
less connected.

According
to the author of the study dan mcfarland phd, asking too many factual questions,
like where the person is from, and what their hobbies are, actually makes
people feel detached.

Basically,
it makes a date feel forest.

So,
when you want to get to know someone, ask them a few questions and then just
sit back and see what happens.

Gives
them a chance to talk, before you just go down your list you want to ask.

I
promise, the other person will thank you.

Don’t pretend to be
uninterested

Somewhere
along the line, people started getting the idea that, being uninterested was a
good thing.

No
one wants to seem too excited about anything these days, like it’s cool to be
nonchalant.

But
when it comes to dating, playing it cool could actually have adverse effects.

According
to research published in the personality and social psychology bulletin,
responsiveness and niceness increase how much people are attracted to you.

One
study tested 112 single college students, who are told to discuss a recent
negative interaction with a stranger of the opposite sex.

They
rated that person’s responsiveness and attractiveness among other things.

The
women did not necessarily rate the more responsive guys as more attractive, but
for men it was the complete opposite.

They
were more attracted to women who seemed responsive to them.

If
you are on a date and would like to go on a second one with that person, it is
probably in your best interest to make that clear.

Pretending
to be uninterested in him, will come off as rude and cause him not to invite
you out again.

After
all, who wants to sit through a lunch with someone who isn’t paying them any
attention, or some selling at them.

So,
when it seems like your date isn’t getting the hint that you are interested,
you should make it clear, and tell them.

Tell a vulnerable story

What
makes you want to turn a first date into a second, or third?

The
connection that you have with the person, right?

Looks
can only go so far.

Being
attracted or attractive to someone is only enough to secure first date.

But,
from there your personalities need to match.

The
best way to get someone to want to see you again, is to form some kind of
tangible connection with them.

Stand
out from all the other people that they are seeing, by letting them get to see
you for who you are.

One
way to do this is by telling some sort of vulnerable story.

Did
you go through a hard time that made you grow as a person recently, maybe tell
them about it.

Now,
you don’t want to get too deep and dark.

He is
still a stranger after all. But letting people in is a great way to build a
relationship.

You
will know that you have done a good job if they share something with you in
return.

Don’t
believe that this trick works?

Just
try it out on your next date.

Pick
a story that you are comfortable sharing and go for it .

I can
almost guarantee that, this will lead to another meetup.

Get him to hold coffee

When
it comes to wooing the opposite sex, there are a lot of tips and tricks that
have been around for decades.

Make
eye contact, smile at him etc.

Though
I’m about to give you a tip, that I can almost guarantee that you have never
heard before.

If
you want a guy to see you as a warm person, get him to hold some hot coffee.

Seriously,
according to Ruud Custer’s, a psychology professor at Utrecht university in the
Netherlands, when you get someone to hold coffee, or other warm drinks, they
will see you as a warm person.

The
rule also holds true with cold drinks.

If
the person is holding something cold, they may unconsciously see you as colder.

Warmer
rooms are likely to have a similar effect.

Ruud
says, that if the environment is hot, the guy is more likely to think that you
were hot.

Apparently,
when we have certain words like hot and warm in our heads, we begin to
associate them with the people around us.

Meeting
up with your crush in a warm coffee shop, seems like the best of both worlds.

If
the guy you like has some personal vendetta against coffee, then just try to
steer him away from dates, and colder areas, and you should still be fine.

Be touchy

So, I’ve
been talking about connection and how important it is to form one with the
person that you want to date.

But
if you don’t feel comfortable sharing your deepest darkest secrets with them
just yet, then rest assured.

There
are other ways to build that intimacy that you want.

Psychological
studies have shown that, being touched by someone will unintentionally increase
liking for that person.

So,
when you are out with them, make sure to touch them whenever possible.

For
example, if they make a particularly funny joke, reach out and slap their
shoulder lightly while you laugh.

Or,
if they are telling a story that you find touching, pat their shoulder or rub
their back.

Now
of course you don’t want to seem creepy.

So,
you should probably try to gauge the reaction after every touch.

Do
they seem annoyed, that you are touching them?

If
not, then keep it up.

This
is a great way to determine if they like you and show interest in them at the
same time.

It
also starts to unconsciously form a bond between the two of you which is
exactly what you wanted all along.

Try
it out on your next date and let me know how it goes in the comments.

Wear something smooth or
fluffy

So,
we have mentioned how important touching is.

It
creates an unconscious bond between people, but what you might not have heard
is how important it is for you to look touchable.

A
study in the science journal, found that people respond more to smooth or
fluffy things.

In
the study, participants were asked to put together puzzles with a partner.

The
participants reported, that the process went less smoothly in situations, where
the puzzle pieces were covered in sandpaper.

This
phenomenon has to do with word association again.

When
you are looking at scratchy or itchy things, you start to put those feelings
onto the person with you.

You
can apply this knowledge to the dating world by making sure, that you don’t
wear things that look like they would be irritating or unpleasant to touch.

Try
putting on a fuzzy sweater, or a nice silk blouse, both of those materials feel
great against the skin.

You
can also use this trick to shape your environment.

Don’t
go on a date to places with uncomfortable chairs.

Try
to go somewhere with nice fluffy couches, and a warm inviting atmosphere.

If
the person you’re dating is going to associate the room with your personality,
then you should always pick a room that shows how you want to be reflected.

So,
cozy restaurants are always a good choice.

Don’t wear too much
makeup

Most
girls love makeup.

There
are so many fun products to try out, and new applying techniques are popping up
on YouTube every day, how could you not love it.

But,
when it comes to getting the attention of a guy, it might be better to go a
little bit lighter on the contour.

St.
Ives conducted a study of 1,000 women and 550 men to determine, if men even
liked the makeup, that they spend forever doing.

The
study found that, 40% of men think that women wear too much makeup, and 45% of
men said that all the makeup that women wear turns them off.

The
men were also not fans of fake tans.

33%
of men claimed, that was a turn-off.

In
the study, the guys also said that they didn’t like red lipstick, or fake
eyelashes.

All
of this just goes to show that a lot of males like women to look more natural.

The
next time you go out with a guy, maybe try skipping the sharp cat eye and the
bold lipstick.

Opt
for a more natural look and see what happens.

Not
only will you save money on makeup, but you will save time.

That’s
because, you won’t have to go through a long arduous makeup routine every time
you want to meet up with your guy.

It’s
a win-win.

That’s
it for 10 genius dating tips and tricks.
