Dating tips for professional women
I read the woman’s feedback first: "He had the sex appeal of a toad, personality of a concrete slab and smelt like he had drowned in a vat of beer.Two minutes into the date he brought up the impending general election (what a bore) and at the end asked if I would accompany him home.What is abundantly clear is that women and men are programmed very differently and this is particularly obvious when they date.Below, I break down the key dating attributes I've observed over 15 years of matchmaking.Although men like to show they are in charge, they admit that being approached by a woman can be a big turn on.If a woman asks a man out for a drink or for his number, this suggests that she is head-strong and self-assured.From a man’s point of view, they do not see the urgency in arranging a second date – they prefer to wait and play it cool so they don’t come across too keen.
Women will break down everything from the amount of time it takes for the guy to reply to their message, to how he said goodbye on the date.Women are usually happy to reveal more personal information than men and will likely go into every single detail, from his shoes to the number of drinks they had to whether they kissed.If the date has gone well, women want to show off and, if the date didn’t live up to expectations, they seek validation from their friends that he was the problem, not them.Although it might seem outdated in the modern world, to stop any confusion, I suggest men pick up the phone and have a conversation instead – women will appreciate the extra effort and men get to avoid texting back and forth. To help women out, men should take some of the stress out of the situation by choosing the wine, instigating whether to have food early on and offering to pay the bill (at least on the first date).Women’s analysis doesn’t stop with texting, they will even go as far to consider the food and drink choices they make on a date. As I’ve established, women are often more anxious than men, particularly when it comes to dating.
