How To Give Your Date ALL Of Your Attention

Attentive Dating

One of the most difficult aspects of dating, is when you have to give as much of your attention as possible to your date. Many people are easily distracted. This distraction can lead the other person into believing that you are really not interested in them. You don’t want this to happen, as your date could possibly end sooner than you actually want. However, if you really like the person you are with and you would like this to go a little bit further, here are a couple strategies that you can use, to give your date all of your attention.

Listen To The Conversation

A huge problem that many people face, when it comes to dating is actually listening to what the other person is saying. Most people prefer talking about themselves. However, if you actually do listen to what the other person is talking about, as long as they are not obsessively talking about themselves the entire time, you can actually learn quite a bit about them. You are learning about their personality. You need to know what type of person they are and based upon your conversation, you can actually get a lot of information.

Look Into Their Eyes

If you are able to look directly into their eyes and maintain that semi-constant focus, it’s going to be a lot easier for you to stay focused on them. If you are not looking at them, other things around you can become very distracting. At the very least, you owe this person as much of your attention as possible, simply because they have agreed to meet you. You could be at a restaurant, coffee shop, or perhaps you are meeting in the park, a place that can become very distracting. As long as you are focusing on their eyes as much as you can, it will allow you to stay focused and also give the impression that you are interested in them.

These are just a couple tips that often work very well for people who become distracted easily. Being distracted can be misconstrued in several different ways and it’s easier to just not deal with that. If you are only going to be with this person for an hour, it is during this hour that you will be able to learn more about them based upon their body language, the way they talk and how focused they are on you. All of this information can help you decide whether or not this is a person who you want to see again in the future.
