Five reasons why you are without a date!
If you are single and ready to mingle, but find that your dream date remains just a dream, it is time you ask yourself a few questions... no we do not mean questions related to your looks, grooming, sense of humour and a host of other things that the opposite sex usually looks for…
Here is a list of things you may have been doing from your teens, but when you reach adulthood these very habits could be coming in the way of your securing a date. Read on and find out what you are suffering from.
1. An eye for an eye: Are you one of those who look elsewhere when talking to the person in front of you? In short, do you shy away from making eye contact for any reason… be it lack of confidence or deceit? If so, start looking into the eye of the person opposite you… don’t glare or stare… just look normally. And for Christ’s sake don’t give her the once-over more than once even if she resembles a Greek Goddess! And if she has something to reveal, a quick glance is good but stop staring as if you’ve never seen anything like that before! It’s time you got comfortable with eye contact.
2. Food for thought: Do you eat like a caveman? It’s all very well to forget the fork and knife and go at the food with your hands. But, don’t try to shove that chicken piece into your gullet as if it’s the last morsel that you’re going to see in the near future. And if you multi-task while eating, your date could just be thinking when her ordeal would get over. So, don’t chew and chat. There will be enough time to handle both individually. What’s the hurry?
3. Nailing it right: In a day and age of the metrosexual male, it is a good idea to appear in prime condition. So, don’t think a bit of manicure and pedicure is only for the damsels. Unkempt toenails are like a red rag to a bull if your companion is in the habit of maintaining her dainty self. The signal she gets is that her companion is not very keen about personal hygiene – a low maintenance individual who might just spread the malice around!
4. It’s about chaos in order: Are you one of those who get fussy about food and finicky as well? While being low maintenance is a crime, so is the opposite of it. So, if you are ordering a pizza, don’t go low on the cheese, the onions, the potato, the meat, the sauces and anything else that is on offer. It is better to order a salad instead of having a pizza without any of the above. And such an order often gets your partner’s antennae up about your ‘demanding’ nature.
