Online dating sites seem to be all the rage right now, and people are using the technology of the Internet to chat with potential dates now before actually meeting with them in person. But in order to do this successfully, it is very important to know how to properly flirt with women and avoid the potential problems the wrong approach could cause. Too many men make the same kind of mistakes when flirting that they do when approaching women in person.
In traditional dating scenarios, fear of public humiliation serves as a powerful tool that tempers our worst ideas. Unfortunately, the nature of online dating diminishes that fear, and it often empowers our bravado in ways that allow our least favorable attributes to manifest themselves. In order to help even the crummiest online dater, we’ve assembled these online dating tips for men, or in other words, here’s a clue as to what women do not want.
It is an exciting day when you’ve decided to ask your girlfriend to become your wife. Because it is such a momentous occasion, you want to make sure that you make your proposal as romantic and special as you can. It is a story that the two of you will have to tell to friends and family over and over again, and it is something that you will remember for the rest of your lives.
She is the one that you have been waiting for all of your life. She is perfect for you and you want to make her yours for the rest of your life. Proposing can be scary, but you can do it with your own style and flair. If you have no idea how to propose to her, here are some ideas.
First, you will want to talk with her parents. It may be old fashioned to “Ask for her hand” but it shows that you hold her parents in high regard. It also shows them that their opinion matters to you because they are her parents. They may be able to help you decide how to propose to her or keep her distracted while you set up a special party for her.
If you are the brave type, take her to her favorite restaurant and have the waiter put the engagement ring in her drink, if it is a clear drink. If it is a dark drink, she could swallow or choke on it. You could always ask the waiter to bring out the ring, in its box, as a special “off menu” dessert. This would need to be set up ahead of time or send her to the bathroom and talk to the waiter about it. They may have some great ideas on how to present the ring to her in the most memorable way.
For the gentleman who is a little shier about proposing, buy some balloons that have sweet messages on them like “I Love You” or “You’re the One for Me”. Add some flowers to it. Tie the ring around the balloon’s strings and make certain you hand it to her in a way that she has to grasp the bottom of the strings where the ring is tied. When she realizes what is on the strings, get down on one knee and ask her. Make sure she has a tight grasp on the balloons so they do not float away with the ring.
Sunset and sunrise are always romantic times to ask for your girlfriend’s hand in marriage. There are quite a few ways to do this. If you are near water of any kind, have a picnic dinner or breakfast on the shore and enjoy the view. Then take her hand, look into her face and kiss her gently. When you release her lips, whisper the question to her and watch her reaction. You will never forget it and neither will she. You can also take a dinner cruise, if you both do not get sea sick. Here, you can pull her to the back of the ship and spend some time alone on the water with her. After dinner and after the sunset, share a glass of her favorite wine and ask her.
For the very athletic couple, make it a game of Hide and Seek. Hide her ring somewhere that she will have to search for it and tell her to look for something small. Under the ring, write her a note that says she can only have the ring if she will be your wife. When you hear her screaming in excitement, go to her and ask her. She may be crying so take some Kleenex with you.
If you are already living together, you may not be able to hide anything or keep any secrets from her. Place the box under her pillow and wait for her to find it when she goes to sleep that night. Not only will she be surprised, but you will have made her day and she just might make your night.
