Dating can be a less than desirable experience for many women. The possibility of meeting your future soul mate is more than nerve wrecking. The whole point of dating is to get to know someone else. However, many are more concerned with making a good first impression so that they can avoid being rejected. Dating is a prime opportunity for this by its very nature. Whether you're looking for a fun night out or a long term development, rejection can occur either way, and it can be difficult to deal with. Self-doubt can come in many forms, from questioning one's intelligence to one's looks to one's ability to tell a good joke. Dating puts it all out there. Thanks to dating tips for women, there are a few things that you can do to be more confident. Keep in mind that certain methods are more appropriate for some people than others; so be sure to only do things that you are comfortable with.

1. Be yourself. Being yourself is normally the first thing I mention in most blogs because it’s the absolute best advice! I know you’ve heard it a thousand times, but please don’t rule it as a cliché’. If you are being true to yourself and with others, you are less likely to face rejection. If you’re faking it, the truth will come out at some point and it could be risky. Continuing a façade takes a lot of effort and it is dishonest. So whatever your faults, try not to hide them too much.
2. Remember that it’s just a date. Don’t get so carried away about the future, just concentrate on enjoying your evening. Putting more pressure on it makes it harder for both of you. The other person is likely to sense your "desperation" (for lack of a better word), and you end up putting way to much pressure on yourself. Instead, try not to fantasize. Be thankful for the good company and find a way to be satisfied for the moment. Even if the date isn’t going to plan, try to go home in a positive mood. Just because you have less in common than you thought, doesn’t mean you’ll be single for the rest of your life.

3. Be spontaneous! Try doing something different for a change. If going out to a candle lit restaurant makes you nervous, then try going on a more active date. Try a museum so that there are distractions when you need a break from talking about yourself. If you have something to do, you can focus less on feeling awkward and more on the conversation. Also, let the other person have the spotlight. If you find yourself feeling a bit insecure, allowing your date to take the lead will make things less stressful. If this doesn’t work, try asking questions. However, be sure to have a genuine interest. Most men can sense when you are not being sincere.

With these simple dating tips, you’ll be sure to have a good time even if there isn’t a second date. Remember that practice makes perfect. Getting in the habit of dating will ease your insecurities about meeting new people.
