I always think that I would make a great heterosexual guy … because I understand women. And you can too!
Women are looking for men who make them feel special. Gestures like opening the car door (swoon), giving a sincere compliment (sigh), helping her on or off with her jacket (I love you!) communicates that you are attuned to her needs and want to make her happy.
Careful planning of romantic dates is another critical part of the formula. Let me tell you about a great date that I am still thinking about …
Dave planned a special evening the night before I was going away for a week’s vacation to see my family. He asked if I enjoyed the music of a well-known band who were in town and celebrating their 25th anniversary. As tickets were sold out he called his underground sales representative (e.g. scalper) and made a trip downtown to pick up tickets earlier in the day. Special efforts are not lost on the ladies. His car was in the shop, so I picked him up. He got into my car with the band’s CD and we listened to their music on the way to the concert hall. Sweet!
We pulled into a parking lot and of course Dave as the perfect gentleman, got out of the car to pay for parking. He told me that the audience usually meets in the cellar of the hall for a drink before show time. When we got to the crowded bar he helped me off with my coat, and immediately noticed that I had dressed up. Dave doesn’t miss an opportunity to tell me that I look beautiful.
It was a stellar concert and there were times when we were actually singing along (maybe that’s not good advice, but it was fun.) We then went out for a drink so we could talk – girls like to talk – and spend some quiet time together.
We drove home, kissed good night, and this guy has my attention. NB fellas – that’s a great date!
That’s right, I said princesses. Think of yourself as the special one and allow your man to attend to your needs. That is what makes him feel like a man.
Where a man goes out of his way to make you feel special, graciously accept his offer and let him know that you are having a wonderful time. Go out of your way to be feminine: wear the dress, bring on the hair and makeup, and when was the last time you used body mist? This is what girls do. I honestly find that when I show up with my feminine halo, my guy naturally steps into being a better man.
So what’s the best advice on relationships when it comes to great dates? I’d like to ask you. Please send me your thoughts and stories.
