Nine Dating Pitfalls And How To Avoid Them
1. Being addicted to tech
Sure, you might have met your date online, but spending the entire date on your phone (or worse, checking your dating apps) will insult your date and make it unlikely that she’ll want to see you again. Put your phone on silent while you’re on your date. This will show her that you’re a gentleman.
2. Not asking questions
If you leave a date without knowing anything new about her, you’ve failed the date. Be sure to ask her questions about herself without overstepping any boundaries. This will show her that you’re interested in her and serious about potentially being in a relationship.
3. Playing hard to get
Filipina women won’t play this game with you. They’re not like western girls who like a ‘bad boy’. They prefer gentlemen who can show that they’d be good husband material. If you’re acting like a child and trying to play with her feelings, she’ll say goodbye without regret.
4. Fading away
Filipina women aren’t going to be the ones to ask you out on a date. If you’ve been on a few dates and you decide that she should be the one to contact you next, you’re making a mistake. They still believe that it should be the man who makes the first move, so waiting for her to contact you will kill your chances.
5. Being overbearing
On the other hand, you shouldn’t be blowing up her phone 24/7. Interesting conversation and a good morning text goes a long way, there’s no need to give her a text description of everything you’re doing, or worse, asking her what she’s doing all the time.
6. Revealing too much, too soon
Keep in mind that Filipina women come from a traditional culture. In this culture, intimacy (both emotional and physical) takes time to develop. Telling her about your deepest fears and failures on the first date will scare her off and destroy your chances of getting a second date.
7. Being a flake
This is something that all women hate. If you constantly cancel dates, she’ll take it as a sign that you’re not interested in her or that other things are more important. Don’t be the guy who cancels a date to go out with his buddies. The only situations in which a cancelled date is appropriate is in the event of an emergency or illness.
It’s true that dating a Filipina means she’ll do all she can to make you happy, but this does not make her your slave. Never compare her to other women or try to belittle her. Filipinas have too much respect for themselves to stay with a man that does not truly appreciate them.
9. Treating her like your friends
Your friends might be fine with grabbing a burger and beer, but you should not treat your date like this. Make effort to woo her and treat her like a princess, at least during the courting.
