Dating Tips for a Successful Union

Give your dating effort a positive start. The most fundamental of all dating tips for a successful union is that even if you have been unsuccessful so far, do not lose heart. If you believe in yourself you are sure to achieve success. Firstly, make up your mind about what you desire and then pursue it with zeal.

Be realistic in your objectives. This is an essential dating tip if you wish to avoid disappointment. If you opt for someone much older or younger than you, remember there could be perception differences and the possibility that your expectations may not be fulfilled. This is something you must be prepared to accept and move on.

Make a Good First Impression

While the first impression may not necessarily be the last impression, they definitely do matter. Remember this essential dating tip and make some effort to put forward a pleasing personality. While your looks may not be something that you can alter, grooming your personality is in your hands. So give it a shot and you will not be disappointed.

Remember to Enjoy Yourself

Enjoy yourself. One of the most essential dating tips that is lost in the maze of appearance, presentation etc, is to enjoy yourself. Do not be unduly worried about whether or not the relationship will move forward, just ensure that you have a pleasurable dating experience.

Start with a thorough, reliable personality test. This will reveal areas of similarity and differences between you both. Explore your family background and upbringing. That is what had the greatest influence on who you would eventually become.

Do the Two of You Match?

Compare your deal breakers and must-haves. Do you match up well with the qualities you’re looking for and wanting to avoid?

Ask yourself if you’re pretending to enjoy your partner’s interests (and vice versa). Sometimes we intentionally or unintentionally fool ourselves by acting enthusiastic about hobbies and pursuits. Sometimes our partners fall for the charade initially, but over time, this false enthusiasm fades away. That’s when they realise that we’re not who we presented ourselves to be.

Passion and Companionship

Assess your combination of passion and companionship. The most enduring chemistry between two people includes both passionate “sizzle” and deep friendship.

Recognise any cute quirks that might irk over time. Sometimes the habits and idiosyncrasies that seem charming while dating will grate on you through the years.


Gauge the level of acceptance you feel. Compatible couples feel a strong sense of harmony and freedom to be themselves.

Talk at length about your core values. Are you similar when it comes to your strongly held beliefs about social issues, spirituality, finances, politics, and child rearing?


Identify the differences that do exist. No matter how compatible the two of you are, there are bound to be some differences. Determine if those are related to significant issues that will impact your relationship over time – or relatively small issues that are be negotiated.

Observe each other in lots of different circumstances. Watch how each of you acts around family, work colleagues, at home, with children, and so on.

We will continue this series of dating tips in another article later in the month. So for now, enjoy the dating process and take good care of yourself in the meantime.
