6. Don’t be scared to show your independence

When dating a guy, sure, they look for a girlfriend but they’re not looking for someone to take care of. So, don’t be afraid to show him you have your own life.

They don’t want to be with someone who gives up everything for them, in their mind, this shows a stage five clinger. Take it slow, and show him you appreciate space. [Read: How to be a strong independent woman that men love]

7. Don’t make him plan all the dates

I know you want the guy to plan every date and make them exciting and filled with spontaneity. I get it, but, come on, he probably stresses out thinking of what to do with you next.

So, take some initiative and plan the next day. You’ll soon see how hard it is to choose something interesting to do!

8. Don’t feel the pressure to have sex

It doesn’t matter if you’re on the second date or your tenth date. Listen, if you don’t want to have sex just yet, you don’t have to.

Now with the whole Tinder culture seeping into the dating scene, it’s normal for people to have sex on the first date. This isn’t a bad thing, but you shouldn’t do it because you feel you should. [Read: 10 reasons a guy just wants you for the hookup]

9. Ask him what he’s looking for

You need to be on the same playing field as him. So, it’s important to know what he’s looking for. Ask him, don’t be shy. This is about you and your emotions, so you need to know what’s going on.

After a couple months, depending on what he initially told you he’s looking for, it’s important to tune back in and see where you both stand.

10. At the end of the date, give them an indicator

I’m not saying you jump on him to show him you’re interested, but you should give him an indicator of whether or not you want to see him again.

So, if you do tell him you had a great time and would love to see him again. Give him a kiss on the cheek or lips as well. If you’re not interested, there’s nothing wrong with a simple hug and saying you had a nice time. He’ll get the hint.

12. After some time, you’ll need to have the talk

After a couple months, it’s important to sit down with him and talk about where this is going. I know, it’s awkward, but you need to have this conversation.

Maybe he’s still not interested in something serious, but you are. Your needs are then not being met. So, you make a choice whether to continue with this relationship or not. [Read: The DTR talk – How many dates should you wait before making it official?]

13. Don’t pressure him for a commitment

You may think after you have the talk, you need to give him an ultimatum. He either commits or you break up. You don’t have to do that.

Honestly, when given an ultimatum, it usually doesn’t go in your favor. Men are scared of commitment. In some cases, you should ease up and give them time. Now, if nothing changes after a while then end it.

Now that you know how to date a guy, what are you waiting for? Relax, take a deep breath, and enjoy the date. Use some of these tips to help your date run smoothly.
