Making Dating Simple: How to Sweep your Date off of their Feet!

Making Dating Simple: How to Sweep your Date off of their Feet!

When we head out on dates, often we really want to sweep our partner off of their feet. We want to do something really special for them, something that they’ll never forget. It’s not always easy to know what to do though. It’s often hard to think of something so amazing, that they’ll always remember it!

Seeing as we aren’t able to read others people’s minds, I’ve come up with a few sure-fire ways you can make your date feel special. They don’t even have to be big things, just as long as your date knows that you’ve put the thought and effort in just for them. Everyone likes to be at the centre of another person’s thoughts, so it’s important that you take some time to put these ideas into action. That way your date will know just how much you care about them.

Here are three ways you can sweep your date off of their feet;

Cook them their favourite meal –

Wherever you are in the country, food is always a good idea for a date. Whether you want to date Lincolnshire singles, or whether you want to date Northamptonshire singles, the easiest way to their heart is to cook them their favourite meal. Taking the time to find out what they love to eat, shows your date that you care about what they like. Even better, taking the time and effort to cook this meal, really shows them that you’re out to impress. Food is always to way to someone’s heart!

Take them to see their favourite band –

Another great way to show your date that you are into them, is to take them to see their favourite band. Heading out to see live music always has such an amazing atmosphere.You might want to date Fife singles, or you might want to date Strathclyde singles. Wherever you are, there are sure to be bands on in your area that your date will love!

Going to see live music together is a great experience and one that you and your date will never forget. Even if you don’t usually listen to the same kind of music, heading out to see them will show your date that you are more than happy to do what makes them happy. There’s no better way to sweep someone off of their feet, than to show them that you’re willing to put your own feelings aside to ensure their happiness!

Buy them an amazing and personal gift –

One of the best ways to sweep someone off of their feet is to buy them a gift that is not only amazing, but is personal to them. For example, if you want to date Exeter singles, you could buy them a gift that represents the area that they’re from. Everyone loves to receive gifts, especially if they have sentimental value. Your date will be sure to be impressed if you get this one right. You’ll have them swept off of their feet in no time!

It’s common for couples to become best friends and I think this is an amazing part of being in love. Your best friend and partner will always be there to listen to you and to take enjoyment out of all of the amazing things that happen in life.

Dating Tips – Three Tell-Tale Signs your Date Went Well

Dating Tips – Three Tell-Tale Signs your Date Went Well

We all know that dating isn’t an easy game to play. It can be so nerve-wracking when you meet people for the first time. We spend half of the time worrying about what we look like and what we’re saying. The rest of the time is spent worrying about what our date thinks about us and if it’s going well. Whether you’re dating Glasgow or dating Leicestershire, the thought process is always the same and it can leave us feeling a little confused!

If you often find yourself feeling like this. then there are a few things to look out for that will indicate whether your date went well, or not. You don’t want to analyse the situation too much, but by thinking back to a few specific things about your date, you’re sure to answer a few questions that are worrying your doubtful mind.

Here are three tell-tale signs that your date went well;

You had a lot to talk about –

It doesn’t matter if you’re dating Guernsey, dating Yorkshire, or maybe even dating Manchester, in fact all over the world! The most obvious sign that your date went well is that you had a lot to talk about. A good flow of interesting conversation, with no awkward silences to put you on edge is a sure-fire way to know that your date is interested in you and what you’re all about. If your conversation bypassed small talk and pleasantries, diving straight into meaningful chat, the chances are that you’ll be seeing that person again!

The time passed quickly –

Everyone knows that when they’re not having a good time, the time seems to slow down. You find yourself looking at your watch too frequently and often cut the date short, making your excuses to leave. So, it goes without saying that if your date is going well, the time will just fly by. The date will be over before you know it and you won’t believe that it’s time to leave already. If you feel like this after a date, it’s sure to have gone well!

Your date was tactile and had good body language –

It’s not always easy to read a person’s body language, but there are a few simple things you can look out for to reassure you. One of the most obvious signs is that your date is tactile. If they touch your arm when they’re talking to you for example, you can be pretty certain that they like you! People don’t tend to try to get close to people they’re not into, so take this as a positive sign.

Another thing to look out for is how your date sits around you. If they turn their body away from you or cross their arms over their body, then this might be a sign that they’re just not that into you. If they turn their body towards you though and even lean in a little, then it’s safe to say that they like what they see!

Why You Shouldn’t let your Age Put you Off Online Dating

Why You Shouldn’t let your Age Put you Off Online Dating

It doesn’t matter how old we get, it’s human nature for us to want a special someone in our lives. It’s natural to want to share your life with someone, whether you’re 27 or 87! The trouble is, as we get older it can get a little more difficult to meet people who are also looking for love. It’s assumed that you get to a certain age and stop looking, so many older people live our their lives as singletons.

There are ways to meet people though, especially if you open yourself up the world of online dating. Senior dating has never been easier and all you need is access to the internet. It’s vital that you aren’t put off by the idea of finding love online. Not only does it make meeting people easier in general, it also helps you to narrow down your search to find someone who you’ll really get along with. It’s time to give online dating a try,  you’re an adult dating and it’s more than OK to log on to do so!

Here’s why you shouldn’t let your age put you off online dating;

You can use age specific dating sites –

If you’re worried that online dating is saturated with young, single people searching for love, then don’t be! There are many sites out there that are age specific. You won’t have to wade through the ones that are too young for you, to find someone who you could have a relationship with. Meeting single people your own age has never been easier!

You can find singles your age, near you –

Not only can you use age specific dating sites, you can also use location specific dating sites. So whether you’re looking for Southampton singles, or single men in Maidstone, there’s a site out there that will suit you perfectly. The right singles, at the right age and in the right location. It doesn’t get much simpler than that!

You can even find sites that will suggest the best places to meet your date, near you. For example if you’re looking for Devon dating sites, a quick search will point you in the right direction. The best dating locations depend on your age and your interests, so it’s always a good idea to do a little research before you meet your date. That way, you’ll have fun and possible find love at the same time!

You’re never too old find love and companionship –

One of the most important things you need to remember when thinking about online dating, is that you’re never too old to find love and companionship. Don’t be put off by thoughts that your dating days are over, or that using the internet is for the younger generations. Everyone deserves to find that special someone whatever their age, so now is the time to give online dating a try!

There are so many advantages to online dating, It opens up a whole new world to those that use it and there are so many success stories out there!

Three Reasons your Festive Season Doesn’t have to be Lonely!

Christmas can be such a happy time of year for a lot of people. With presents, parties and loved up couples around every corner happiness just oozes out of the season. For some though, the festive season can be a lonely time, one that drags on rather than passing in a blur of fun. In fact, it’s common for Christmas to be on of the loneliest times of the year.

It doesn’t have to be though. If you’re one of those people who struggles during the festive season, there are ways to make this Christmas the best yet!

 

Use Christmas parties to meet new people –

If you’re single this Christmas, maybe you’re part of the Cheshire singles scene, or the Aberdeen dating scene. The key to making the most of the festivities is to use the celebrations to meet new people. You never know who’s just around the corner. So instead of spending time wishing you were spending Christmas with someone special, head out and find them!

Enjoy time off to catch up with friends and family –

Christmas is definitely a time for family, so why not use this time to catch up with your loved ones. Maybe you have family who live in different areas of the country. if this is the case you could use this as the perfect excuse to travel around a bit. If you’re heading south there’s a good Bristol dating scene you could check out along the way! Or if you’re heading north maybe the Edinburgh dating scene would be more suitable? That way you get to catch up with friends and family and try out different cities to date in too!

Get out and enjoy a little festive dating –

The festive season is the ideal time to do a little dating. There are so many Christmassy events up and down the country, that are perfect to head to on a date. So why not take advantage of them?! It doesn’t matter what age you are either, there are plenty of senior dating sites for the more mature singles. There’s no need to be lonely when there’s so much fun to be had!

Three Ways to Know SHE Likes You!

Three Ways to Know SHE Likes You!

Often it’s us women that want to know whether the guys are into us. It’s less common to think about how men perceive the way that women react to them. They’ll only human after all, why shouldn’t they want to know if the women in their life like them back? I’m sure that if you asked a group of Wiltshire singles or a group of Southampton singles, then the guys would want a fool-proof check list to know if the girls are keen on them!

Here are three ways to know if she likes you!

 

She checks if you’re OK –

Whether you’re on the Buckinghamshire dating scene, the Jersey dating scene or the Oxfordshire dating scene, the universal sign if a girl likes you is if she’s always checking in with you! If she likes you, she’ll want to know you’re all good and if you’re not, she’ll want to know what she can do to help.

She laughs at your jokes –

That’s right, even if they’re not funny she’ll laugh anyway! If she likes you she won’t want to bruise your ego. So if you’re the guy that cracks endless cheesy jokes and they’re still being well received, she’s definitely into you. On the upside you might be really funny, in that case she’ll love you even more!

She texts you first –

One of the easiest ways to tell if she’s into you, is if she texts your first. If you’re not her cup of tea, it’s unlikely that she’ll put the time and effort into picking up the phone. So if your phone is pinging away with cute texts from her, you can almost guarantee that she likes you!

Three Ways to Know if HE Likes You!

Three Ways to Know if HE Likes You!

It’s not always easy to know whether the man you like, likes you back. It doesn’t matter whether you’re from the Cheshire dating scene or the Wiltshire dating scene, women often find themselves in the same predicament. Far too often we spend time trying to work out the signs, instead of just enjoying ourselves. So if you’re in a position where you’re worrying if he likes you or not, here are three sure-fire ways to know:

He makes an effort to talk –

One of the best ways to know whether a guy likes you, is he makes an effort to talk to you. If you find him striking up conversation over the littlest of things, it’s probably a safe bet that he’s fond of you. Men don’t always find it easy to talk to girls they like. So if your crush is really making the effort to chat to you, I would definitely take it as a sign that he’s super fond of you. It’s even better if he strikes up conversation about a mutual interest, maybe you’ve spoken about your favourite Devon dating site and he’s remembered?! This means he’s paying attention and that can only be a good thing!

He takes time to compliment you –

Maybe you’re part of the Suffolk singles group, or maybe you’re from the Essex singles group. Wherever you are in the country men love to compliment the girls they’ve taken a shine to. Plus, if a guy has taken the time to appreciate the way you look enough to pay you a compliment, it definitely sounds as if he likes you!

He tries to make you laugh –

One of the best ways to a woman’s heart is to make her laugh. There’s nothing better than a man who has a sense of humour and put the effort in to make you smile. If the guy you like is finding ways to put a smile on that face of yours, it could be a sign that he’s into you!

What Does Romance Mean to Me?

What Does Romance Mean to Me?

Romance can mean so many different things. For some it’s flowers and chocolate, for others it’s surprise holidays and fine jewellery! There’s no right or wrong way to add a little romance into the lives of yourself and your loved one, the trick is knowing what the word means to them!

On the subject of romance, here’s what the ‘R’ word means to me:

Feeling comfortable –

I think that feeling comfortable with one another is definitely romantic. There’s nothing better than knowing someone enough to be your true self with them. I remember being in Devon dating when Hubs and I first got together and it was the first time we felt truly at ease with each other. Bliss!

Knowing how one another feel –

Back when I was a in the Yorkshire singles category, I never imagined that I could know another person so well. These days Hubs and I can read each other like books and there’s nothing more romantic than knowing how to make the other person feel at their best. We get even better at it as the years go by too!

Having a takeaway in front of the TV –

Whether you’re in Leeds dating or in Surrey dating, on of the all time most romantic nights is settling down to a takeaway and a good film! This is my all time favourite date night! To be honest, I think this is the favourite date night of many people up and down the country. You don’t have to be in a relationship either, even Tayside singles love a good food and movie night!

Breakfast in bed –

Now that we have two children, breakfast in bed has become a very rare treat. On the day that we do treat each other to a lie in and a yummy breakfast though, it’s so nice to have the break. What could be more romantic than providing an extra hours kip and some good food!

Three Reasons your Dating Life Begins at Forty!

Three Reasons your Dating Life Begins at Forty!

We’ve all heard the saying ‘life begins at forty’, well today we’re going to discuss why your dating life can also begin when you hit the big 4 – 0! Reaching middle age doesn’t mean that you should hang up your dating hat, if anything the complete opposite is true. At 40, you’re in one of the best positions you’ve ever been when it comes to dating and here’s why!

You know what you’re looking for –

Whether you get help from a Manchester dating agency or you enlist yourself in speed dating in Watford, the key thing to remember is that you know what you want and you know what you’re looking for! You no longer have to kiss a bunch of frogs to find your prince or princess, you’re old enough and wise enough to move on if they don’t tick all of your boxes. You could even head to somewhere completely new such as Edinburgh dating, if the one you want isn’t local, there’s no reason why you can’t go further afield!

You’re more comfortable in your own skin –

Getting to 40 can often mean that being comfortable in your own skin is easier than ever before. Long gone are the days of looking in the mirror, wanting to change things about your appearance. You know yourself and you know what looks good! You can forget being awkward in front of new people too, you know the worth of your voice and you aren’t afraid to air your thoughts. Don’t think of it at senior dating, think of it as dating with experience!

You already have a good life outside of romantic relationships –

You might be all the way up north using a Glasgow dating agency, or you might be right down in Kent dating. Where ever you are, the chances are that you already have a good crowd of friends and family all around you. Gone are the days when all your hopes were pinned on meeting ‘the one’ in double-quick time. The loved ones you have around you mean that you’re happy to take your time and meet new people at your own pace, love shouldn’t be rushed after all!
