Don't Treat Your Date Like One of the Guys

I'm sure that you are aware of how you act when you're around your buddies. You tend to joke around with each other, tease each other with insulting comments that are meant to be humorous, get involved in horseplay, etc. This is all done in fun and not meant to offend anyone. It's just a guy thing.

It's ok to act this way when you're around your buddies, but don't do it when you're on a date. One surefire way to ruin a potential relationship is to treat her like one of the guys. Don't do it!

When you tease, poke fun at, degrade, make offensive remarks all in fun at your date guess what happens? If she's the sensitive type, she will get very offended. You may think this behavior is no big deal because you're used to acting this way around your buddies, but trust me guys, she won't appreciate it and hold it against you.

You see, while you're making all these meant to be funny comments, she is keeping score. And the score is not in you favor my friend. She will remember all your teasing and insults and take it personally.

In closing, I just can't stress to you enough how important it is to not treat single women you date like one of the guys. You will just end up hurting her feelings.

Do this instead: Make her feel good about herself and be as romantic and affectionate towards her as possible. You will have much, much more success with single women if you will take this approach.

P.S. Also, don't treat your date like one of the guys when you're on a double date. This makes matters much worse because you will be offending her in front of others and this will really alienate her. Plus, the other girl won't appreciate it either.

And when they go to the restroom together they may make comments to each other about what a creep you are. By being labeled a creep, this sure isn't going to help you get a second date. Wouldn't you agree?
