It’s no secret, if you want to get the guy you really like and they appear to like you then you need to act busy!
Yes, when he calls make him wait, set a timer to go off or something and tell him “Sorry, I gotta go get the dinner on”. Making him wait will make him want you more, you see you re a conquest to him and the harder you make it the more he wants it!
So, there’s no better excuse to go and fill your diary with exciting past times, try something new, meet new friends… the list is endless – just make yourself busy and they’ll come running!
When you aren’t thinking about it, it just happens! Ever heard the saying ’ when it rains it pours’, well the only reason it does is that you are truly not thinking about dating and find other things to engross your mind in.
When should you agree to meet their folks?
Well if your finding yourself asking this question then you’re not alone. Many people ask me when exactly to meet the folks and I always say the same thing:
“When you are comfortable with the idea”.
Never feel pressured into it, that’s my advice. Sometimes relationships move so fast tat we almost feel out of control, and this is bad! Get control of the relationship and YOU decide when you feel it’s right for YOU.
As a general rule I wait for at least 3 months before the introduction is made.
But something else to comprehend, and that is not to place too much emphasis on ‘meeting the folks’. Remember that it isn’t a job interview and they will just be happy for their daughter/son if they are happy… with you.
Obviously when you do meet them, best behaviour is the order of the day, but don’t try too hard. You are you and they are not the ones that have to date you!

Were Apple trying to attract everyone? Well it worked!
The below is a result of numerous research carried out by experts:
White reflects light, cleanliness, innocence and purity. It goes with pretty much anything and is a strong neutral colour.
Black commands authority and power. It also makes people appear thinner believe it or not. Black is also a colour of submission (e.g. a priest wears black in submission to God).
Blue reflects peace as it’s the opposite of red. It actually causes the body to release calming chemicals. But beware, the wrong shade of blue can be depressing and cold. Blue also reflects loyalty, and studies have shown that people are actually more productive in blue rooms!
You can do too much dating you know… the pressure is on for you to succeed with all your mates and family eagerly asking you on a daily basis whether ‘last night’s date was the one!’
If you’ve been dating for a while without settling with one particular partner then you also become tired of having the same conversations with each different date. The end result its that you get tired and very bored of dating!
All the effort you put into meeting someone new is also a huge stress – the calls, emails, the adrenalin rush (when you like them), the late nights … the list goes on!
The truth of the matter is that if we keep looking for that certain someone you just don’t find them I’m afraid. Yep, you may have a few sexy nights with different partners but does that make you really that happy – then you start thinking and get even more tired thinking about it!
If his sounds like you, you are not alone I’m pleased to tell you. There is a solution I am pleased to say… TAKE A BREAK FROM DATING!
It’s as easy as that. Stop going to those singles nights, speed dating lunches and meeting prospects online when you get back home… turn the computer off and chill out!
You’re more likely to find someone if you do this anyway because you will be relaxed and truly at peace with yourself for a change!
Believe it or not dating in New York has taken a new twist with the introduction of Bar Code dating. It’s actually a form of sign language used by singles to say anything from ‘you’re a hottie’ to ‘get lost!’
A popular sign is this (used when you are already with someone) – ‘The Committed Clutch’: put one arm out and hold the wrist with your opposite hand, it means “I wish I could BUT I’m on a date”!
If you like someone then you can always try the ‘Later Loop’, circling your index fingers round each other (means “I can’t get away now but maybe later”)
