Top Tips for Men on a Third Date
Obviously, you do have certain third date expectations. Let’s consider whether they are realistic. Furthermore, we’d like to offer some useful third date tips or advice for men in terms of dating etiquette on what to do and what to talk about on a third date. The good news is that the beautiful woman is interested in you enough to go out with you for the third time! There are high chances that you start building a healthy relationship.
1. Make the rendezvous fun
We all want to have fun, so do an activity: you may choose ice skating, bowling, attending a concert, an excursion, an art gallery, etc. Neither of you has to be good at it. Perhaps, it might be better if you’re not. It makes it so you can laugh and easily discuss what you’re doing.
2. Make the meeting aimed at an interest
Maybe she said a particular place she was eager to go to or a local park, a particular dining establishment. If the lady is thrilled she will open up and talk about it. As she is sharing her experiences you will be able to connect your own experiences and share.
3. Make your romantic rendezvous a little more intimate
However, you should be careful with hugs and kisses. You’ve probably heard about the third date rule (to have sex), however, let’s consider whether it always applies. Getting naked with someone new should be done at your own pace, not when some arbitrary dating rule says so. If you’re looking for a life partner, you’ll probably need more time to get to know each other better. You may have a little wine in a fancy restaurant with a spectacular view. You are able to have more serious conversations and open up.
4. Be honest and respect the woman
Don’t treat girls like they’re a dime a dozen. If you go on two dates, but the sparks haven’t flown yet, it does not mean you won’t be able to build a romantic relationship. Don’t overestimate love at first sight. On the other hand, if the sparks happen to turn into fireworks on the first or second date, control your urge to text your new flame every half an hour just to say hi and to be too pushy.
5. Get to know the other person better
Make sure the two of you are on the same page when it comes to what you’re looking for in the relationship. You have decided to see this person not once, not twice, but three times. And ditto for her! What do you like in your future partner? Encourage her to answer the question. This will help you both connect at a deeper level (or learn the connection isn’t as mutual as you thought).
Do you share the same values? Do you have some common hobbies? Are you both animal lovers? Do you believe in staying fit and healthy? Are you family-oriented? Do you love your jobs? Every person drops clues regarding their true personality once they start getting a little comfortable with you. Keep your eyes and ears open.
Is there some physical attraction too? The best way to find that out is by trying to get a little intimate. Of course, this should happen only if the two of you feel comfortable enough.
6. Do not avoid asking about the future, but don’t forget it seems to be a very sensitive issue
The gentleman who’s afraid of talking about the future or gets spooked by forward-planning is not you, right? It’s not the perfect moment to discuss marriage and babies but do not be afraid to ask about your relationship expectations and plans, in general, to understand if you have common values.
Is the third meeting too soon for a marriage proposal? In 99% of instances, yes! What it’s not too soon to say, “Where do you see this going?”
7. Don’t forget — textiquette is important
If you have had a good time, a message from the gentleman to say so is much appreciated, so be a gentleman. Moreover, if you have kissed, it doesn’t mean you can be salacious in messages :).
