Dating Do’s and a Don’t

Yes, we like to joke a lot about relationships, but we can also be serious enough to offer real advice.

In our podcast, Tony suggested that you bend your knees when you kiss a woman that’s 4’11. He has some great tips, however, if you’re just starting to date–whatever way you define that–someone:

  • Pay attention to the person you’re pursuing, for example.
  • Listen to what he/she says, and what he/she doesn’t say.
  • Look into the person’s eyes as he/she talks. If you’re really paying attention, you’ll learn a lot.

Jill also has some tips:

  • Don’t focus on what the person does for a living; be open to learning who the person really is by asking questions.
  • Know not only what your deal breakers are, but also what you can tolerate. No one is perfect enough to match everything on your list of criteria (everyone has one, whether they admit it or not).
  • Look for someone who can make you laugh. That comes in handy on your bad days.

    The husband is right on this one. Here’s the thing… the “target” of the meeting date doesn’t necessarily have to know he/she is on a meeting date. I mean, for example, a guy can hypothetically have a conversation with a drop-dead gorgeous co-worker about her sorority and reveal that he gave serious thought to pledging a frat but opted out because he lacks rhythm and therefore can’t step. He waits for her laugh and reply of, “I bet you dance just well and I’m gonna find out one day” and then deduces that she appreciates his self-deprecating sense of humor. He’s also learned that dancing is an option for a “date” night activity. The meeting date is the precursor or set up for the “date” date. A date is simply a conversation that can last 15 minutes or several hours however there must be an element of romantic interest/intent from the person who asked for the date.

      Thanks for your comment, Bryan. Tony thanks you for being in his corner. Jill, on the other hand, appreciates your explaining that the “target” of the meeting date doesn’t have to know that is what is happening. Had Tony explained it as well as you did, this topic wouldn’t have made it on the list of episodes. So, keep listening. They both would appreciate your weighing in on who’s right.
