Sometimes we need just that little bit of help in securing a date with the person we like - here are some top tips on how to get that date.
When you fancy someone, you can often go one of two ways. You can sometimes over compensate and act a little bizarre, putting them off you as you just aren’t acting like yourself or on the flipside, you can become crippled by shyness and aren’t able to string a sentence together. People we like have the ability to turn us to jelly and it can make getting a date with them extremely difficult.
Practice Your Flirting
If you know you are either going to act a little weird or perhaps get all shy, why not practice your flirting? Whether you decide to practice your flirting skills on one of your friends and accept feedback from them or whether you decide to use a site like quickflirt.com to test out your flirting skills, maybe you just need a little practice before putting them into action with the person you like.
Knowing what to say and when is key to securing a date with the person you like and if you are acting bizarrely and you aren’t acting like yourself in the slightest, they are not going to want to know.
Know What They Like
If you really want to get a date with someone, it is important to know what they like and what they don’t like. If they love picnics in the park, you can suggest an impromptu picnic date and they are bound to say yes to you. If they dislike loud, dark spaces, perhaps a movie date isn’t quite right for them. It is all about finding a balance of what they like and what kind of date you are willing to take them on. If they can see you are making the effort to go on a date somewhere or do something they liked, they may be more inclined to agree to go out with you.
This was touched upon in the ‘practice your flirting’ section but people will know if you aren’t being genuine and are over compensating for something when talking to them. It is important to be yourself, let them see the real you so they can make a decision on whether they want to go on a date with you or not.
Most people really rate honesty and truthfulness so may agree to go on a date regardless as they would like to see where the date could lead - the chemistry may not always be there right at the beginning but sometimes a spark can be ignited once you’ve spent a little more time together. That being said…
Don’t Ignore The Chemistry
When there is chemistry, don’t ignore it! If the time feels right to tell someone how you feel, do it. They may feel the same, they may not - but you will never know if you don’t do it. If you truly want to get a date with the guy or girl that you like, then you have to tell them eventually - when the time feels right, you need to jump right in and get it out there!
Lastly, the biggest tip to getting the person you like is don’t sweat it. If we stress over something too much we can often sabotage it without realising. Go with the flow and see where the mood takes you. If the moment feels right to ask them on a date, then do it - but don’t overthink it as you’ll only end up worrying yourself and potentially putting off your possible future date. If you take these tips on board, good luck with getting your first date with the person you like!
