Dating Tips for Men From Patti Novak

7

(Online Dating Newsletter) In December 2008 we published some first date tips from matchmaker Patti Novak. This time around we have some more dating tips from Patti Novak specifically for men:

> Make an effort to clean yourself up—it shows that you care about the date. Be sure to shave that day. Don’t wear wrinkled clothes with sneakers.

> When you’re on the date, be attentive, ask questions and really listen. And don’t forget to make eye contact. Eye contact and a nice smile can steal a woman’s heart.

> If you’re going out to dinner, brush up on your table manners. If you hold the fork like a toothbrush, please ask someone to show you the right way.

> If you want to go out with a woman on the weekend, don’t call her on Friday—I find a lot of guys make this mistake. In the first three months, she may not be dating exclusively so don’t assume she’s sitting back and waiting for you to call.

> No matter how excited you are, don’t send flowers after only a couple of dates. It makes women nervous if you come on too strong. Wait until you’re at least a few months in.

Patti came to fame as a matchmaker in Bufallo, New York with her own TV show called “Confessions of a Matchmaker” (unfortunately, it only lasted one season). She is also the author of the new book, Get Over Yourself!: How to Get Real, Get Serious, and Get Ready to Find True Love.

    Nice advice I will have them in mind.
    And I want to ask about the flowers. In my town I don’t know someone that offers the service sending and delivering of flowers … so not to send flowers is not gonna be a problem … it’s more likely to be a problem i you want to send :)
    But is it gonna be wrong if you give her a flower on the date … a single rose for example ?

    I must say that this advices are totally useless, unless you are coming from the woods and you’ve never seen a fork before! This advice is more likely to help a 14 year old, instead of a grown up person (that’s my opinion anyway).
    At Asti:
    A single flower can only make a good first impression and it’s impossible to make any harm at all.

    Very good tips for men. Perhaps these should be taught in high school, that way more men would develop these habits from the beginning and it wouldn’t be so hard for them to adjust. It would probably make their dating livves easier too.

    Great post. Preparation matters.

    And Ooops. This part got me.

    “> If you want to go out with a woman on the weekend, don’t call her on Friday—I find a lot of guys make this mistake. In the first three months, she may not be dating exclusively so don’t assume she’s sitting back and waiting for you to call.”

    I do this one. Now I know the reason why they always keep declining it!

    A clean and neat man shows that he is concerned with his outlook and serious in making a good impression. By doing so, he shows respect to me and respects himself also. Good advice for guys out there!

    Thanks for sharing these good tips for dating. I am sure this would be useful for first time daters. As rightly said by Patty, we can’t fix an appointment with someone on the 11th hour. We should try to get the appointment at least a couple of days before the day of meeting.

  7. Right says:

    I have always found myself being very aggressive at the start itself. The fourth pointer is just directed at me telling me what I usually have been doing wrong.

    I have been jumping the gun too quickly and never knew that I was embarrassing the other person with my hasty behavior!
