Dating Over 50 – Do’s and Don’ts – Give to Receive

Here’s a tip that’s geared toward those of us dating over 50.

You obviously have a certain idea in mind as to how you would like your date to treat you, and you should use this idea to give you an indication as to how you should treat them. Treat your date as you would like to be treated.

When you treat your date a certain way, it gives them a clear indication not only of the type of person that you are, but also of the way in which you would like to be treated, because it is a generalized idea that if you treat someone a certain way, you expect to be treated in the same way.

The way you treat your date refers to the level of respect you show, how you speak to them and whether or not you flirt with them, the kind of things you say to them and so forth. If, for example, you would like them to speak to you informally, then you need to show them that it is okay to do so by speaking to them in the same way and allowing them to read you in terms of what you expect from them.

Treating your date in the same way that you want to be treated also means that you should be open with them the way that you want them to be open with you. You wouldn’t want them to hide important facts about themselves, so you should not do that to them either, unless you are happy starting a relationship based on false ideals.
