TIP #1 - Single women go on dates to have a good time, not to be serious. Keep this in mind and never act serious on the first few dates. If you try to get serious, sexual, and romantic too soon, you will only drive women away.

TIP #2 - Add imagination and romance to your dates. Do things slightly different than the norm. Instead of just having dinner at your place, have a candlelit dinner with fresh flowers on the table. Go to see classic films. Spend an afternoon at the museum. In other words, try to set yourself apart from all of the other guys.

It's easy to tell what she is used to doing on dates - out to a movie, to dinner, to a party. So avoid the same old thing, or add a slight variation to what she is used to. She will remember it.

TIP #3 - End the date before she does. When you first start dating, it is important to avoid that awkward time when it is getting late and she finally has to announce that it is time for her to go home. When the evening is still going well and still on an "up note," announce that you "...hate to end the evening because you've had such a great time, but it is getting late and..."

This is going to surprise her because most guys hang on until the bitter end hoping that by some miracle they will end up in bed for some hot passionate sex with her.

By ending the date before she does, you:

1. Set yourself apart from other guys.
2. Continue to maintain control over her and the evening.
3. Make yourself hard to get.
4. Suggest that you aren't desperate for action, therefore there must
be other single girls in your life and she is going to have to work
harder to catch you.
