Is It Ok To Drink Alcohol When You’re On A Date?

Drinking is an enjoyable activity you can do with friends during Friday, Saturday and even Sunday nights. Drinking takes the edge off, and, let’s admit it, we’re all a little bit more fun after we’ve had two or three glasses of whatever poison we choose for the night. That’s the playful expression, right? “Choose your poison”? As fun as it may be to do with friends, would it be appropriate to get a drink when you’re on a date?

Drinking While On A Date, Will It End Terribly?

Let’s examine our past experiences. Ask yourself this question: how many times have you regretted drinking too much while you’re on a date? If you’re embarrassed to say the answer out loud, then probably one too many.

The Problem With Alchohol

When you’re on a first date, it’s always a good idea to drink a glass or two of wine so you can loosen up, that is if wine goes well with your dinner. But if you’re meeting in a cafe, it’s probably not appropriate for you to order one glass after the other.

We’re saying that there’s no problem with alcohol if the situation calls for it, like if you’re having a steak dinner, or if you’re in a fancy restaurant that serves wine.

It’s NOT ok to mix alcohol into your date when you know that you’re probably not going to be able to control yourself from downing one drink after the other. We all know that alcohol lowers your inhibitions, well, that is if you had too much. You don’t want to:

  • Give your date a bad impression of yourself.
  • Get shut down from having a second or third date.
  • Make your date think that you always go out drinking uncontrollably.

When you’re online dating, you usually read a person’s profile before meeting them. Studies show that one of the biggest turn-offs women have stated in their online dating profiles is meeting a man who parties or drinks too hard. You don’t want to be that guy.

Moderation Is The Key

You know yourself better than we do so if you must have alcohol, make sure that you can control yourself and that you practice moderation. Don’t exceed two glasses. You can probably handle a date without alcohol anyway, so rest on your natural charms instead of the false courage alcohol gives you.

Irresistible Five: Nerdy Girls You Won’t Regret Meeting

Biggest Early Relationship Mistakes We Make

You know that old saying “Start as you mean to go on”? Well, it also applies to relationships. Avoiding certain relationship mistakes from the beginning can prove to be more important than we might imagine.

What are the most serious early relationship mistakes we make?

The beginning of a new relationship fills us with hope and dreams, so it is easy to get carried away and forget that if we want ours to last we need to set the right foundations. Read about the biggest early relationship mistakes people make and why they are so serious.

  1. You go all out. While it is absolutely natural to be enthusiastic and want to give it your all at the start of a relationship, it is crucial to remember to keep some balance. Of course, this does not mean being too selfish or calculated. It means not looking too desperate by resorting to extreme gestures, and setting your boundaries in time. All relationships need to have rules, and it is one of the greatest relationship mistakes to not set yours early, as you may end up feeling victimized later on.
  1. You share too much too early. Sharing is not a bad thing as such. However, there is something off-putting about a person who is willing to open up and pour their heart out right from the start. Make sure you are honest and open, but keep things light and appropriate, or you will run the risk of tiring your date and taking away a lot of the magic too.
  1. You are too reserved. On the opposite side of sharing too much there is sharing too little. While sharing too much might tire, sharing too little is also quite unattractive. People who share too little are unable to form any type of meaningful communication with their partner and end up forming a relationship that is too superficial to last. It is natural, for example, to tell your date about your divorce, but it might be a very bad idea to go into the details of how acrimonious it all was.
  1. You can’t let go of the past. Whether it is your past you can’t let go of or your new partner’s, being stuck in the past is a major relationship mistake. Leave the past behind and open up to new experiences and people. No two people or two relationships are the same, so you should not let your past mar your present.
  1. You have unrealistic relationship expectations.  Even though we all look for perfection, it is one of the biggest relationship mistakes to expect ours to ever be flawless. That would mean we are perfect individuals and, as much as realizing this might hurt, we really are not.

However experienced or careful one may be, we are all bound to make some early relationship mistakes we might regret afterwards. That doesn’t mean our relationships will be unhappy or unsuccessful though, because they evolve and improve just like we do. The most important thing is to find the partner with whom you will want to explore life. If you are single, why not visit AnastasiaDate and meet the one you will want to try and build the perfect relationship with?

Unexpected Things Your Girlfriend Wants You To Do This Valentine’s

This Valentine’s Day, do you know what your girlfriend wants you to do? You probably think that she wants you to give her flowers, chocolate and a stuffed teddy bear, but you could be wrong. Of course, we’re not saying that these things will not be appreciated if you hand them over to her, but there are other things she needs from you.

This Valentine’s, Your Girlfriend Wants You To Do These Gestures

Giving presents during Valentine’s Day is a good way to show that you care and that you’re invested in the relationship, but showing your love and care in other ways is better:

1. Touch Her While You Watch A Movie At Home

It’s not what you’re thinking, first of all. Touch here and there means that you show her how you feel by holding her hand, putting your arm over her shoulder, stroking her hair, or placing your hand on her waist, while you’re snuggled up on your couch watching a movie. Touch is a big thing for a woman. Most men underestimate the value of touch. This is the reason why it’ll be a special gesture when Valentine’s Day comes. You can even practice it after the V-day comes to an end.

2. PDA Goes A Long Way

PDA stands for public display of affection. You’re probably cringing as you read what PDA means, and that’s normal. Most men aren’t really showy with their emotions, but this Valentine’s Day surprise your girlfriend by holding her hand or by being affectionate with her in public. Your girlfriend knows that you love her, but this Valentine’s Day your girlfriend wants you to show how you feel about her in front of everybody.

3. Say Thank You

Did you know that a study confirmed that one of the most important things to say in a relationship to make it last is not “I love you”, but “thank you”? Yes, gratitude can go a long way, especially with the lady you’re in a relationship with. A heartfelt thank you can give your girlfriend one of the best feelings in the world.

4. Surprise Her

Don’t ask your girlfriend what she wants to do or have on Valentine’s day. Just surprise her instead. Your surprise doesn’t have to be fancy. It could be a simple dish you’ve cooked for her, it could be that you’ve done all the chores she’s supposed to do, or it could be a short but sweet letter that she would never have expected from you.

The items on this list seem simple enough, but to most men, they are going to be a challenge, especially if you’re the strong, silent type. But, if you truly care about the woman you’re with, you’ll do it nonetheless. Doing the suggestions on this list can strengthen your relationship even more.
