Lessons Learned from Dating with Alicia Lewis
If you're on the dating scene you've probably had a couple of these questions run through your mind...
What's a good first date activity?
Who gets the check on a first date?
Can girls ask the guys out these days?
What type of questions you should be asking without making it feel like a job interview?
In a Fun Chat Friday, over at our Facebook Group, Alicia Lewis shared her thoughts on all the above as well as sharing her own lessons learned from dating, how to ask for what she wants and what she's learned about herself in the process.
Some of those include:
1) Listen to what your gut is telling you. If someone isn't compatible with your values and what you want, regardless of all the good things, don't be afraid to call it quits.
2) You can tell a lot by how someone treats the waiter.
3) Be clear on your values and know you are enough to have those things and not settle.
4) You can't change people.
5) If see something not fitting with the two of you in the beginning, don't expect it to eventually fit in the future.
6) Reinforce good behavior rather than pointing out the things you don't like. Think about how you would want someone to tell you those things.
7) Look at your friendship relationships. Your romantic relationships should be that easy.
8) We are in charge of our happiness. Come to a relationship has a whole person, not expecting someone to complete you.
9) A good first date - drinks. It's not dinner, it's not coffee.
10) Know the kind of guy you want - if you want to be pursued, the guy should do the asking of the first date and the planning. If you want the roles reversed - go for the ask!
