Men need to be careful on their first interracial date

Your first interracial date is going to be as exciting as going on a roller coaster for a kid for the first time. The interracial date brings in a few surprises you may have never expected, a few cultural shocks you may not have been ready for and a few facts that you may have never heard of. Get ready for your big day that has just arrived thanks to the interracial dating website you have been using for the past few months. Be sure to put your best clothes and your best behavior with a positive attitude for your first interracial date. Here are a few tips that will come handy on your first interracial date.

Be confident on your first interracial date

Butterflies in the stomach and nervousness will always be there while dating an interracial woman for the first time. You never know how things are going to unfold for you. However just remember one thing that she said a YES to date you. Both of you are together on a date since she also has interest in meeting and knowing you more. Focus on the positive traits you have, trust your wits and intuitions. Leave all the negative thoughts at home before stepping out for the first date. Be your natural self. A majority of the women will like to see the kind of person you are in your raw form. Do not pretend to be someone you are not. Women have a strong sensing power and they are going to sense if you pretend.

Choose the location for the first interracial date carefully

 

Choosing a location is the hardest part when you are dating someone for the first time. First and foremost chose a location that is equidistant from your place and her place. Secondly, the place should not be too overcrowded. Avoid shady locations and bad neighborhoods. A coffee shop can be an ideal location for your first date since it is not too heavy on the wallet and offers you a good start in the form of coffee which is considered as the best ice breaker for first-time daters. Keep your first date short and crisp. Keeping it short means you always have a second chance to meet her in the real world. Apart from that, you keep your mysterious self-hidden along with the suspense of your date’s personality which will unfold in the subsequent meetings.

Basic Etiquette and manners matter in the first interracial date

First date tipsBeing polite in your words and gestures is not going to take away your macho image you have built for yourself. Open the doors for her; all doors –  the car door, restaurant door. It will surely leave a good impression on her and talk a lot about your personality. You have planned the date so make sure that you pay for everything. Don’t even suggest spilling the bills. However, if she insists firmly on splitting the bills go for it. Don’t hurt her sentiments on the first date itself. Being on time is something that you need to make sure. Plan accordingly. Keep the traffic snarls and rush hour in mind and get out of the house early. It will hardly make a difference if you are five minutes early. However, if you are ten minutes late your prospective first interracial date may prove to be your last date with your dream woman.

How To Date Someone Of a Different Race Or Color

There’s one thing to remember: If love or attraction between two people of different race or color is not possible, then there shouldn’t be any half-citizens at all. Here are some things to do when dating someone of a different race.

1. Stop pretending even before you start doing so.

You don’t have to pretend to be someone you’re not. It’s either you’ll end up creating a wrong, condescending impression, or have to stick to your pretentions all your life. While you may want to express your interest in the other person’s language or ways, you have to be sincere and avoid mimicking. You may also want to avoid creating an imprint of pure intentions when you’re only after steamy escapades.

2. Open Up Your Mind

Most of the time, it’s not all about the difference in language or skin tone, other views vary from one culture to another. Hence, you may have to brace yourself when dating someone who comes from another race. There’s no right or wrong, just variety.

3.You’re Dating A Human

Even when you know part of you wants to experiment on what it’s like to be in a relationship with someone of foreign blood or culture, you should remember you’re dating a human being, not a guinea pig. Your potential partner may be someone different, but it doesn’t mean you’ll just play along. Respect begets respect.

While you consider your date as a foreigner or different, remember it’s vice versa. You are also unusual, on your date’s point of view. Ideally, there shouldn’t be any superior or inferior, especially in love and relationships.

Secrets on How to Flirt Your Way to A Conversation or a Relationship

All right, this time I will teach you how to actually ‘tease’ your way into getting a conversation with someone you think is interesting. After all, someone needs to make the first move. For the single ladies who are scared of seeming too awkward, you may have to initiate else you will be left waiting in vain for the time to come.

Here are some decent ways on how you can make that first move.

1. Start Giving Compliments

Of course, you wouldn’t want to come across fake or trying too hard. Just start acknowledging simple truths about the other person. Just be prepared for rebuttals and transitions. You wouldn’t like to talk all day about the sneakers or shirt he’s wearing, or the skirt that hugs her behind perfectly. (wink!)

2. Ask

There are limitless possibilities of things to ask, However, since you are making the first move, make sure to pick a topic tastefully and inquire in a way that would make the other person want to talk to you. First impressions often last, so don’t just ask anything for the sake of asking. Play it smart.

3. Encourage Opinion

You may have to assert yourself by opening a conversation with things you know or are sure of, then ask that person for an opinion. Like the first two tricks, you may have to be prepared and keen enough. It’s either you end up with a too opinionated person or not at all.

4. Be Forgiving

When making the first move, you may not always get the exact responses or reactions you expect. You may have to follow-up with an inquiry whether it’s bad timing or too personal. As this happens, relax. There’s always next time or another person.

Flirting doesn’t always have to come with a negative connotation. It’s all about timing.

Think More Than Twice

When you think you like someone and starts hearing not-so-positive anecdotes from others, you may have to take a pause and think again.

Put things on ‘fast forward.’ Can you keep up with someone who drinks or nags a lot? Maybe not. Maybe yes. Remember that you deserve the best. While you may endure things, it may be emotionally and physically straining on your end. Hence, before you invest every inch of your body and soul to your probable mate, be ready.

Embrace Rejections

You may discover yourself in a circumstance where you have somehow invested emotionally, physically, and financially on another person, only to find out he/she dislikes you for not being the ‘perfect fit.’ You may have to assess yourself first before making any harsh decisions of either letting go or changing. You may always diss people off for being superficial, but you may also consider changing for the better.

Don’t Limit Yourself To ‘First Dates.’

It doesn’t mean you’re getting married. You’re just entertaining a possibility of a long lasting relationship that may lead you to the altar, or maybe not. Remember to set your limitations and expectations. It works better that way. Don’t rush things, as the song goes “Only Fools Rush In.”

Try to remember these things when looking for a partner. You should aim for someone who wants to be a better person with you.
