”201? What’s with 201? 101 is already advice so what’s next?”
You may be wondering the same thing i was yesterday during the baby shower of my Aunt Alex when my Aunt Lils told her she’ll be giving baby 201. Well, sisters, to answer your question, 201 is applying situations in real life and probably i just decided to call it that since i’ve been giving enough 101 already on dating and guys. Anyway, are you ready for our first lesson? Let’s goo.
Do you guys have any planned dates, either tonight or tomorrow? Anyway one tip is to make yourself stand out–actually number one rule for us women. If you’re thinking, ”Do i need to memorize some tips for something that’s supposed to be fun?” no you don’t. 🙂 I just want you to give a quick read to make the best out of everything that’s supposed to happen.
I know it can seem a little awkward, especially for those more introverted than me, especially if you worry a lot about not clicking with him. I don’t worry personally because most of the time they’re guys i’ve known for years and i go on group dates to avoid anything. Here are just some simple topics for starters to talk about. (Starters of 201 course and dating.)
Talk about stuff like real life places, not movies. That’s another aspect of imagination, as i stated in my previous post. Richard Wiseman’s studies showed that couples that talked about movies were more likely not to return a second date vs. couples who talked about leisure and traveling. ”My goal is to travel the world” is a good statement. Then share the places you want to go to and as you get deeper into your relationship, make travel plans for each other.
Share personal (but not TOO!) about yourself. Simple secrets such as your guilty pleasure or how much chocolates you binge on alone can start up. Or if you’re a deeper person like me stuff about ”Why did you choose your career?” or ”What is your cringiest childhood memory?” can spark a good laugh in between you. Personally, it’s when i used a drinking cup to collect my cousin’s pee when i was 9 years old almost 10. (Naughty little girl here hahahaha) In less than 60 seconds a new spot for personal bond is formed.
Go for controversial topics. Behavioral economics expert, Dan Ariely, says, “We limited the type of discussions that online daters could engage in by eliminating their ability to ask anything they wanted, and giving them a preset list of questions and allowing them to only ask these questions. Studies showed that asking questions more about personal standards such as abortion, violence against women kept the conversation going.
