    What to do

    I am recently on the singles list. I am 42 years old and haven’t dated for 15 years. I have a date coming up and i am very nervous. Not sure what to do or what to say. Very nervous. Any help?

    Just be yourself and make small talk. 🙂

    Don’t stress out about it!! Just consider conversation and dating as a fun thing to do 🙂 And whenever you find it uncomfortable or nervous ( silent moment in talk, asking for number, first move, etc..) just tell to yourself that you’re good-looking and confident. There is absolutely no reason to be afraid and step back. It will help you a lot. Trust me!

    Stay calm.
    Pay attention to whatever girls do: body talk, behaviour, facial expressions. You can avoid a whole lot of trouble just by analyzing facial expressions and body language.
    Don’t be needy.
    Don’t open yourself to much.
    Whatever you have been doing the last 15 years… do the opposite!
    Again: Stay calm.
    And again: pay attention.

    Go and watch these guys videos on youtube:
    David Snyder (NLP, body expression, confidence)
    Layan Bubbly (facial expressions, deal with women)
    Alpha m. (style and clothes)
    Tripp advice (how to behave)

    Just be yourself and take it slow. Be a good listener and have fun. Don’t be too serious. Good luck to you!

    “Be yourself” — but you might need to step up your game a little!
    You are probably very used to doing things in your own way that is most comfortable for you, but check yourself to see that you are being considerate and proper to this lady. Stand a little taller, feel a little happier, talk a little more, and be sure to give your date attention and some time to talk to you, too.

    If you stumble in your words, if you touch her with sweaty hands, if you drop your fork on the floor… don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Laugh it off. Say something funny about it without being self-deprecating. Don’t come off angry or cocky. Be cool!

    But like others above stated, have fun. Enjoy yourself. Don’t think so hard about it being a date. Think about it as an exciting night out, a fun night out with a new friend with potential. Enjoy the food, the movie, the nightlife around you… or whatever you are doing. She should enjoy it right along with you. Good luck and have fun!

    Stressing out is the worst thing you can do, just act natural, go with the flow, and the rest will come naturally.
