Jewish Dating site provides Dating Tips to improve your chances
Jewish Dating Service SawYouAtSinai.com is well aware that dating is an exciting
and stressful time in a person's life. It requires many simultaneous actions, which
sometimes seem to contradict each other. Don't talk too much, be authentic and say
what you really think. Dress your best, don't be ostentatious.
One of SawYouAtSinai’s 350 matchmakers, Mrs Hilary Kahn, explains how today's singles
can navigate all the well-intentioned advice and make the most of each opportunity
when they are on a date.
Dating first and foremost requires that you are looking for the person with whom
you can best build a loving home. That person will share your goals and ideals and
you will find comfort and camaraderie together. In order to get that far though,
certain dating protocol are a prerequisite.
Here are some basic common-sense things that the online Jewish Dating service believe
will help make your dating experiences more pleasant, and hopefully lead to meeting
the right one soon.
Let’s start at the beginning. You are going to meet someone. How do you arrange
the date? Whatever you do, don’t text. We have become accustomed to short, terse
communication, but this is not the way to set up a date. The guy should call, introduce
himself, and together a time and meeting place should be arranged. Considerations
such as travel, convenience and safety should be applied, as well as a pleasant
place to get to talk.
Once a time is agreed upon, be prompt. Also, first dates should be 1½ to 2 hours.
Go into it assuming that you’ll meet again and that this date is to get over the
awkwardness of meeting a stranger.
Being considerate towards the other person, as is the key to a strong marriage,
and when dating, these are definitely traits to look for.
Guys, make sure to discuss whether or not the date includes dinner. No one is at
their best when they’re hungry. If a date is after work, a girl might think it includes
dinner unless she’s forewarned. Regardless, offer to buy at least a drink.
A good date does not need to be costly, but one should show good manners and that
they have funds to treat.
Depending on your age, religion, location there will be certain concepts that resonate
more, but in general, courtesy and common sense go a long way. When in doubt about
protocol, ask a mentor, etc. to avoid making a faux pas.
You only get one chance to make a first impression, so be prepared.
For instance, how should you dress? Casual or suit? Depending on who you’re dating,
the answers will vary.
Eye contact shows you're interested in what the other person has to say. Stay focused
and let your body language reflect your interest.
Be prepared to have a conversation. Know what’s going on in the world, have an interesting
story from work to share, etc.
Turn off your cell phone. Unless you are a doctor on call, you can be unreachable
for a couple of hours.
Even though this may seem obvious to most adults, personal hygiene is a must. That
means, your teeth, hair, body, and clothes should be clean. This shows that you
care about yourself, and those who are nearby. No one wants to marry someone who
smells badly. Look your best, just as you expect from your date.
Guys should plan the date, even in the 21st century. That means that when you meet
your date, you already know where you are taking her. This shows confidence and
foresight. After a few dates you will likely transition into planning activities
together, but the first few dates are up to the guy.
Dating requires networking, advocating, perseverance, and often patience. We need
to look our best and focus on what we have to offer to a marriage. Make your best
efforts to present yourself as pleasantly as you are able, even when you feel discouraged
by the process. Remember that your job is to do your part and let fate take care
of the rest.
