To get to the dating tips, just scroll down...
Hello my lovely readers! ~♥ I had the most horrible dream last night about a burglar/serial killer who chopped up his victims and left a stuffed animal to the ones who were next! Haha sounds like a bad horror movie.. It's all Mads' fault because he talked about burglars, and I told him I'd have nightmares :( THANKS, BÄBISNÖRD! You know, it's only OK when you're actually there to hug me after I wake up :(
I feel a little ego today, so here are pictures from the other day:
My makeup looks kinda purple-ish, but it's all brown xD
I decided to stop eating sweets (except ice cream or chocolate every now and then), because it makes me feel all tired and stuff. Plus sugar is really unhealthy, so it's just good not to eat it. :)
Now for the dating tips!
I also decided to make this blog post to help guys create the perfect date (got inspired from reading something)! Because let's face it... a lot of guys are completely clueless (no matter their age) and go for the old cliché dinner and movies. "Whaaaat?" a lot of you may think, "isn't that what girls want?", and I can only speak for myself when I say NO!
Okay, it's probably just me, but I find it pretty awkward going for dinner with someone I barely know. I don't really like eating in front of strangers (I'm talking about the date, not the people around)... Plus when you eat you can't talk as much as if you would just go for something lighter at, for instance, a cafe. Also, the girl will assume you (the guy) are paying, and will probably not order what she really wants to have. So I would choose a cafe over a restaurant - or better up, why not cook the food together at home? That's a lot more fun than to just sit down and eat.
As for the movies... Why would you think a good date would consist of two hours of silence in a dark room? How are you supposed to get to know each other when you can't talk? Instead of going to the movie theatre, watch a movie at home! That way you can talk and look at each other! Much better, right?
But beware! Some time ago (obviously before I knew my wonderful boyfriend ♥) I met a guy to watch movies at my place, and he had bought candy and CocaCola Light... Excuse me, are you assuming that just because I'm a girl I don't drink regular coke? That I'm on a diet? What's this supposed to mean? If you're unsure of what she wants, just pick up the phone and ask her! This might not be a big deal, but most girls will react to small things like that.
I read that you should show the girl who you are and choose your favorite activity for the date, for instance bowling, or karaoke. But, in my opinion, the girl should be the one to decide what your first date should be like! She might not be into rockclimbing or whatever you had scheduled, so ask her what she wants. It makes her think that you care about her (which you hopefully do). And for the next date (assuming there will be one), you can show her your hobbies, and let her try new things that you like to do, like motocross or whatever it may be - don't be too extreme though, that'll just scare her off.
Then the big question is; what on earth should I wear?! I read somewhere that you shouldn't wear white sneakers, but I love white sneakers! That's sooo much better than dressing up and looking like a snob. Girls don't want that! We want you to look like you normally do (unless you're a hobo or something), because that means you're comfortable around your date and with yourself. I'm not saying you should forget about your best looking shirt, because we want you to work your ass off for us, but don't overdo it.
That's pretty much it for now! Hope it'll teach you dinner+movies-guys something important!
