With the proliferation of online dating sites, finding a date is fairly easy these days, especially for the lucky few who have the looks that are sure to boost the chances of an initial contact. Getting a date and dating, however, are two different things, and the latter is often a lot more challenging. This is especially true if you are dating a Hindu. How do you get it right the first time?
Know and Respect the Culture
If you are a Hindu yourself, being respectable should not be a problem. Unless, of course, if you are a jerk by nature. Dating, regardless of culture, demands respect in every level, but you need to do more when it comes to Hindu and other conservative cultures. In Hindu tradition, dating is unheard of, especially since the bride and groom will only see each other during the wedding. But times are changing. Still, knowing and respecting the local culture is a vital step.
Be Your Best
No need to be presumptuous or pretentious, but you should be at your best, especially on a first date. It is vital that you make a good impression to get a second, third or fourth date. Confidence is a really attractive trait, so is being able to carry a fun and intelligent conversation. Avoid being arrogant at all times.
Most importantly, be genuine. Most people can tell straightaway if you are pretending to be someone you are not. It is also a real bummer to stay on top of your lies the entire duration of your date.
Present Yourself Well
The idea is to make an impression on the first date. So dress appropriately for the situation and location. If you feel comfortable and confident in what you are wearing, you will feel just as confident, increasing your chances of impressing a man or woman.
Only a few people would likely say that dating effectively is easy. But when you do get everything right, everything would just fall into place. It is also important that your agenda is to get to know someone at a deeper level and not for anything shallow or kinky.
