The Do's and Don't's when dating

You may feel that dating rules have changed in this modern day world and looking for new guidelines.
But dating the love of your life is not one huge step; it takes a lot of little steps in the right direction.

DON'T come on too strong. Be careful with behaviour that could make you look to be needy, desperate or unstable.

DON'T bring up intimate details of family matters on your first date. You need to foster an understanding and relationship first. Don't's get into heavy stuff too early, just keep it lighthearted and general initially until you have built that bond and going down the path of love.

DON'T be overly critical or judgmental on your first dates as that can only be done once you are both on the same path of building a lasting relationship.

DON'T be overly influenced by family and friends about your ideal dating partner. Its ok to listen and take comments on board but let them create pre-conceived ideas of who is right or not. Its your life and your relationship.

DON'T Start talking about your ex's. It’s natural to have thoughts and make comparisons when you start dating but don't's voice them. It could create insecurity and jealousy. The time to talk of that is further down the path of a steady relationship.

DON'T alter who you are to fit your dates interests or needs. Doing that is a doomed relationship in the making as you will attract a partner that should never have been in the first place.

DON'T Start talking about money, that's a topic that should be left until at least the second or third date.

DON'T talk about or complain about your past bad luck with love. That's an intimate subject that requires understanding and best left until it arises well into your new relationship.

DON'T over talk about yourself and your past. Someone in a new relationship needs to know who you are today not overpowered by how you were.

DON'T start talking about where they see themselves in a few years, future plans or family wants. That discussion will eventually come when the time is right. Concentrate on the romancing of the moment and get to know each other in the present.

DON'T monopolize the conversation or make yourself the highlight. Open up the conversation and encourage them to take the lead.

DON'T suddenly put your own life on hold just because you've found a likely partner. Keep doing the things you do for you. Keep pursuing your hobbies, exercises, reading or whatever you enjoy in your life.

DO be a gentlemen or lady. We may live in a changed and modern society where women can pay for themselves and open their own door and men do the washing up and bring up kids. But we all like to be treated like a gentleman or lady sometimes.

DO make your conversations reciprocal, show interest and be inquisitive about the person especially on your first date.

DO allow a natural progression towards intimacy. Telling a potential partner how much you really like them adds a lot of unnecessary pressure. Inner thoughts and feelings should naturally flow and build momentum over several dates.

DO balance 'you' time with 'together' time from the beginning of the relationship. Evaluate when the needs of the couple are a priority and when are your individual needs are the priority.

DO balance the opinions of others with your own intuition about who is a compatible match for you.

DO keep in mind that dating isn't easy for everyone. Be gentle and considerate towards the others views or concerns on dating. Leave your own negative baggage at check in.

DO present yourself truthfully. its much easier than the energy required to pretend.

DO talk about yourself as who you are today in the present and as the dates progress, talk about the values and goals you have for the future.

Have a Fab next date and all the best from the Fab Love team.
