2.How do we select our date? Who to date?

- Physical attraction.

The first thing that attracts two human toward each other is physical. Every individual has certain standard for physical fantasy and attraction. Eyes are the first thing you notice and it is from the eyes they say you can open the door to the heart. But not to sound to romantic, many have different standard and different physics, which attracts them the first. This again falls under the reason of why you are looking to date someone.

- Intellectual attraction.

When you past the physical test, it is time to start and walk up to the person you are attracted to. Here are the keys:


“Being true and genuine”

“Politeness and courteous”

The above three are the basic triangle of successful approach. Many find approaching someone and asking them on a date a big challenge. The true reason that many find the approach difficult is that they are not afraid of the approach itself but the thought of rejection. So they start being shaky and losing their confidence, trying to act as someone else and duplicate another person character and consequently not being true and genuine even if the original intention was. The important thing is that the three golden triangle rules above are all about being truly yourself.

Now that we have the psychology boost of confidence and believe in ourselves, it is time to politely approach the person of interest that you found attractive and start a genuine conversation.

It is that small talk and conversation that you really know that is a person worthy to ask on a date. Imagine you find that person extremely attractive physically and approach him or her and start a conversation, but the first sentence making the conversation is dull and off subject. You know then you need to move on.

- Likes and dislikes.

The first conversation leads to understand the likes and dislikes between the two of you. Discuss about many topics like meal, place of hangout and even favorite sport team. The more you discover about the mutual interest, it is more assuring that you are going to ask the final verdict of going on a date.

- Attitude.

Character and attitude can be visible during the first impression and first few sentences. You have a certain attitude that can only attract certain people to you. Going back to the golden triangle rule of being genuine, you need to show your true attitude and truly understand the level of attraction the other person has for you.

One of the most important misconceptions of dating someone is to follow regulation. There is no guidelines but the three golden rules and respecting the person you are going on date.
