"No cord or cable can draw so forcibly, or bind so fast, as love can do with a single thread."

Robert Burton


"If we deny love that is given to us, if we refuse to give love because we fear the pain of loss, then our lives will be empty, our loss greater."

Asking Someone out on a Date.

If you like someone you may have to ask them for a date. For men this is standard practice and for women, this process is becoming increasingly common. If you are thinking of asking someone on a date consider the following quick dating tips:

1. Why are you asking them out? is it for the right reasons and what do you expect as a result of them saying yes or no?

2. Be prepared that the person you ask may say no and in which case do not take the rejection personally.

3. When asking someone out choose your moment carefully and practice what you might say in advance so that you don't appear tongue-tied.

4. If the person you ask says yes, ensure you already have thought of a place, date and time for the date so that you display signs of thoughtfulness.

5. Be prepared for the person asking why you want to date them so that you are able to flatter and create a sense of trust immediately. People can be wary and they may want to know the reason behind your request. It would be better to anticipate this by saying "would you like to come to dinner, I have always thought you are great fun.".

6. Make sure that your request for a date does not pressurise the person in any way. If they want to think about it, let them. But don't chase.

7. Make sure that when you ask someone on a date you smile and keep things fun and happy. Being confident with a smile on your face will elicit a far more positive response.

8. Always have an alternative date and time or location in mind should the person be unsure of their diary. Giving a person a choice is often a dating masterstroke.

9. If the person says no, don't chase for a reason, simply move on. They may think about things and get back to you with a yes response later.

10. If you ask someone on a date, make sure that you actually intend to go through with it. Standing people up is not allowed.

11. If you are being asked out don't play games. If you need time to consider the offer then say so. If you want to say no, say no. But do not keep someone hanging on for no reason. You wouldn't like it if the situation was reversed.

12. Try to avoid dutch-courage such as using alcohol to boost your courage levels as this will often backfire.

13. Don't ask someone out when they are in a group of friends. Timing is everything.

Dating Tips For Men

You are a guy who knows how to date, you are a guy who hasn't dated in years, you are a guy who has never been successful with women. Whatever your situation there are some common dating rules to follow when venturing into the dating jungle. These rules are simply to protect your emotional state and to ensure even handed success. Women are trained from day one in the art of dating warfare. They have a physical and emotional arsenal that you may never hope to match. But don't be disheartened, be prepared as the dating battle isn't over yet!

1. Look your best. Get some decent clothes and shoes. Women always look at your shoes (this has actually happened to me!). Get clothes that fit you, suit you and are contemporary. Don't just buy one outfit, sort out your entire wardrobe. If you can't take care of yourself, how are you going to take care of her? Oh yes and buy a good well tailored suit, there is no excuse not to.

2. Get your hygiene and styling sorted out. Down to the barbers and sort out your hair, get a decent style if possible. If you don't have much hair still get down to the salon and either get your head shaved or something you can handle. Then it is off to the shops with you for good quality cologne and a grooming kit. Yes that means some expense. Men are so often criticised for smelling bad. Get into a regular showering routine and smell good always. Women appreciate it.

3. Sort out your job if you have one. Women want a man who has some ambition in life so coasting along as a skateboard instructor is generally not going to win you a real catch. Any job is better than none, but knuckle down and sort out some direction in your life. Change job if need be but at least try and look like you you have something of a career. If you have a manual job, at least have some plans to work for yourself. If you already do, then you are on the right track but know what you are about work wise and have some idea of your future because they will be asking questions about your prospects even if they pretend it isn't important. It is.

4. Get your knowledge levels up. Make sure you are up to date with current affairs, watch the news and read quality papers. Women do not appreciate stupidity and laziness is no excuse either. Current affairs are important in showing you know all about the world outside. If you travel a lot then this will help tremendously, if you don't have plans to travel, get some. Being able and willing to sort out vacations is essential in the grand scheme of things.

5. Do not extol the virtues of drinking in the bar 5 nights a week. This will never win any fair princess's heart. If you love your booze sort yourself out as there are other things in life too. Taking your lady for a drink is fine, but give them the impression that you live in there will get you absolutely nowhere - fast.

6. If you love your sport then fine. If sport is a religion you may have a problem but everything by degrees guys. If you are serious about dating then ramming the subject of soccer, rugby or F1 down your date's throat will put them off in record time. Sport to the uninitiated is completely boring and shows not only sheep mentality to a woman but lack of thought, creativity or inspiration. Millions of girls love sport too and that is fine but don't make your passion into a one-sided one.

7. Never expect sex on a first date. If all you are after is sex you have come to the wrong place for reading material. If you are looking for the girl of your dreams there is nothing more sexy than a patient man. You are easily capable of waiting for the right woman so do it instead of thinking with your balls.

8. Sort out your educational knowledge of manners, courtesy and chivalry. A woman likes being treated well, particularly with respect. Lose the coarse language, the swear words, the rudeness and the laziness. Know how to eat in a top restaurant, know about fashion and jewellery and in particular flowers. Know how to hold a door open for a woman, let her go first and help her with her seat. Listen to what she says but have opinions of your own too. Show her respect and manners at every step and you should not go wrong.

9. Start listening and stop talking. Keep your date interested but don't turn into a one man entertainer. She will bore of you quickly because she wants to talk about herself too. Listen to things she tells you about her and remember them. Women love to chat so you need to learn to listen to her. Remembering things she told you will impress her by the bucketful. Fact.

10. Give up smoking now.

11. Lean to dance even if you have two left flat feet. Women love to dance and dancing is a physical contact sport (or can be). It is also romantic and sexy. You can be the world's worst dancer, I don't care. But if you stay seated when she is on that dance floor you may as well not exist. If you can join Salsa and dancing classes all the better. You don't need to be Travolta but you should have an idea of the basics of rhythm. Get started today.

Dating Tips For Women

Guys, if you don't like this, tough - look away now.

Now I know everyone is different so don't take things too seriously here.

I wish there weren't any general rules and we just got on with it but courtship is a ritual; there are things that we make happen that excite stimulate, create interest, confound etc. Dating is a long test of compatibility. Are we perfectly matched? If we just threw ourselves together then the chances of long term happiness may be reduced. And yet previous generations managed to succeed on a far less complex courtship criteria list. Many arranged marriages work too, interestingly.

In every society there are a predefined set of social rules we follow, from the way and timing of eating to the way we behave in public. The issue here is that when women date there are things that can help them be more successful. If we accept that dating is a game then there are rules to that game and winners and losers. If you know the rules in advance it gives you a head start. If men know the rules by which you are playing you may change the rules to suit the situation to keep the man guessing. Men love a challenge so feel free to adapt the rules slightly and add them as you feel inclined.

You can separate rules out into two parts, dating and online dating. Both areas have distinct rules that a woman should follow for dating success.

General Dating Rules

  • Always look great, whatever your income. Gorgeous hair and some lipstick and wearing rags will still turn his head. You have the advantage, you are the woman. Look your best as you could meet a potential Mr. Right anywhere at any time.

  • Never reveal information you don't have to. An enigmatic woman drives men wild.

  • Keep dates brief but your men interested. Less is always more.

  • Try and stay in shape and involve some fitness regime at a gym. However much you hate it, your Mr. Right loves your body as much as your mind.

  • Let your man pay. If he is interested, he is interested enough to ensure you eat well and get home safely in a cab.

  • Ensure you receive flowers, if he doesn't know what a florist is, dump him.

  • Never ever sleep with a guy until he has fallen for you. Sex early in your dating game plan will ruin everything.

  • Always keep a guy waiting and never turn up early. It is a lady's perogative.

  • Never be available when he wants you to be. Never be at the end of a phone when he calls and always let him leave a message or two first before replying.

  • If he is available Tuesday, you are available Thursday.

  • Weekend shopping trips with girlfriends are sacred and not available for dates.

  • Keep your man standing on quicksand by shifting landmarks and goalposts constantly.

  • Ensure you are a good kisser. Men will walk away if you cannot kiss. Practice on a  mirror if you have to.

  • Never ever talk about previous boyfriends and particularly their prowess in the bedroom. The number of ex boyfriends is your business only.

  • Never pre suppose anything about your date until you choose to know him better. You cannot always tell by looking

  • If any man shows the slightest signs of possessiveness or insecurity run like the wind. Life is too short for boys.

  • If his shoes or hygiene are a disgrace dump him

  • Never talk too much about your father and how your date measures up in comparison.

  • Never ever come across as too available or too desperate, he will run a mile. He is the one doing the chasing remember.

  • If the guy in the corner is gorgeous go and get him and create the need in him for you. Never wait for men to come to you because you may watch him leave with someone else.

  • You may well have all the bodily functions of a man, just try not to demonstrate them early on.

  • If you are wanting a child, don't mention it on the first few dates.

  • Never ever criticise his mother unless you want to remain single.

Online Dating Rules

  • Always let them come to you, don't chase via email

  • Block anyone who annoys you instantly

  • Place the best & most vampish photo up you can find

  • Don't reply to instant messages with clever opening lines

  • Remain aloof and let yourself be chased

  • Always reply to emails at least 3 days after receipt

  • Never provide you true email or phone details to the man

  • Always date safely and protect yourself at every turn

  • Make sure your login name is stunning and sexy as well as enigmatic

  • Do not login for hours on end. Short, rapid visits are best

  • Do not assume the man you are talking to is destitute or sad

  • Never ever reply to emails at weekends, wait until a weekday

  • Never state how good your sexual performance is in your profile

  • If you don't want to date married men spell it out in your profile

  • A man who doesn't reply to your email within 3 days should be ignored

  • Make sure your humour levels come across in text

  • Do not chat to hundreds of men at once, the delay in replying is a dead giveaway and your Mr. Right will be off.

  • Don't even think about misrepresenting your size or description. They will find out.

  • Come across as cool and sophisticated for best results

Always remember ladies that you are a sexy desirable woman and the world is your oyster. Always let men do the chasing and always let yourself be the chooser. Always stay safe and never risk yourself for the sake of attending a date.
