The first step to finding true love is to admit that you’re ready to get in the dating game and open your eyes and heart to love. Love is rarely static, but that doesn’t mean physical attraction is doomed to fade over time. Now, taking the bold step and risk to date a potential bae’s family and friends before meeting the bae-to-be is one big way to call on cupid to intervene in your quest for true love.
Dating is fun, exciting, and not as simple as the word may seem, which is why we’ve studied the successful dates on Date My Family Nigeria to give you the best tried and tested dating tips you’ve ever read. Trust us!
- Boundaries are healthy.
Many dating experts agree that setting healthy dating boundaries means speaking up for what you don’t believe in, what you’re not comfortable with, your dating goals, but making sure you are not too rigid. Why? If you’re too strict with your likes and dating do’s and don’ts, you may miss out on new experiences that could expand your dating pool.
- Make sure you’re with someone that makes you laugh.
Imagine being with someone that gives you the opposite vibes? BORING! Don’t get us wrong, we’re not saying both of you should be comedians but if you haven’t shared a few laughs after 15 minutes of being together on a date, then that might as well be a conference or meeting. Don’t you agree?
- There’ll be awkward moments and that’s okay too.
Remember when Fade’s dress kept slipping off her shoulders on her first date with Ayomide? She embraced the wardrobe malfunction and even made a joke about it. When life gives you lemons, accept it and have loads of fun with it.
- Learn how to communicate.
You need to understand that everyone communicates differently, so it's important to know what works best for you and your date. While on the date, open up with clear lines of communication so as to express your values, dating needs and other important information, without getting misunderstood or creating conflict later.
- Say yes to a second date!
You might end the first date not entirely sure about how you really feel about the person. Being unclear about your true feelings shouldn’t stop you from saying "yes" to a second date if the conversation comes up. It’s just cupid giving you a second chance to get to know your potential bae; so, don’t rush the instant spark and chemistry just yet, give your date a second chance.
Try these tips and let us know how it goes. Good luck!
