dating tips

We all know the deal when heading on a date. We go into a crazed panic about what to wear, how to do our hair, what to talk about, where to go… it's endless (and definitely unnecessary) but we all do it anyway.

Well, then we all might want to take a leaf out of Khloe Kardashian's pre-date rituals because she seems to have this thing down.

Writing on her blog, Khloe gives her readers some tips on what she does when she's going out with a potential suitor.

"If I'm going out with a guy, I'll usually do extra hair and makeup to make sure I look nice. The rest of my glam is taken care of because I already get my nails done once a week and get laser hair removal.

"Overall, I just put more thought into it. So I'll do things like double-check that I'm wearing perfume right before I walk out and that my purse matches my outfit. Normally, I'm too lazy, LOL."

She then goes on to write about if a man is coming over to her house.


Keeping up Season 13!

"I'm prepared 24/7! I like to set a certain ambience in my house, so I have specific candles that are lit every day, morning to night.

"I have a wine fridge in my bedroom and also a mini fridge that I keep stocked with water, too. Don't want my man to get dehydrated, honey!"

She's a absolute pro.



It’s always nice to see how things have changed throughout the years, and it’s usually for the better. This video made in 1947 was meant to help viewers figure out how to be popular, but was it really just a guise to stop girls ‘parking in cars with boys’?

Have a look for yourself – but the basic rules laid out are:

  • Don’t date everyone around you
  • Don’t leave it to the last minute to ask a girl on a date (that’s for the boys only, as girls don’t make the first move of course)
  • Don’t let the woman make the decision about where to go, and ALWAYS make sure to imply your price range so she doesn’t get ahead of herself
  • Keep a date calendar, so you don’t forget or turn up late for your date
  • Save the boy money by giving him a bite to eat at your house


Don’t call until three days after you get their number
Leaving it the three days is a ridiculous rule. Leave it a week, leave it an hour, do what you want. If they like you, a stupid 72-hour rule isn’t going to change anything. Don’t be a sheep.


The man must always pay
In the words of Cosmo: “When the bill comes, wait for him to make a move for it. When he does, reach for your purse/wallet and continue the payment process until he says “I’ve got it” (and then say “thanks” and drop it). If he doesn’t say it, you’ll have to split it. But don’t say, “Can we split this?” or “I’d really like to split this” because he may think you actually mean it.”
Why is it that even though society says men and women as equal, dating hasn’t moved on from prehistoric times?


Only date people with good jobs
If you’re a slacker and are just looking for someone good to have on your arm, how shallow can you be? How about making sure you have a good education and are in a position to look after yourself from your own job?

Eat lightly on a first date
Make a pig of yourself, order the steak! What’s the point in being careful and eating a grain of rice at a time if you’re just going to turn around six months into a potential relationship with this person and get crumbs in the bed while eating toast?

It’s a conversation not an interview
If we’re to be honest, it’s an interview. You will go through the motions of every interview you’ve ever been through -nerves, sweaty palms, resorting to pre-planned answers when you get confused, telling them you’re a team player and giving examples of times when you were able to motivate those around you.


Wait to have sex
Again, so what if you have sex on the first night? We’re all self respecting adults (I hope) and if we mutually choose to have sex on the first date then so be it.



Basically every pre-conceived notion that society has for first dates leads us all to become this person who is nowhere near who we actually are. Be yourself – if they like you for you then maybe you’ll see them again, if not then who cares? It was never going to work.
