Dating Tips For The Hopeless Romantic

Sep 12, 2008
You have had a crush on this girl since grade school and you have known each other since you were five. Her parents are best friends with your mom and dad so you always see her at your house especially on special occasions like birthdays and even some thanks giving celebrations.

You are basically one of her best guy friends and you are quite sure that she has no idea that she is been the apple of your eye for as long as you can remember. You might have gone out with her in a group date or she has sometimes asked you to go with her to buy something but never on a date.

You have always wanted to find for that perfect opportunity to tell her about how you feel about her but you have always chickened out at the last minute. She is your first love and you really want her to be your first date. As beautiful as she is, she has her own share of avid suitors.

Some of whom she has dated and some she chose to dump. You know this because she actually told you about it as one of her best friend. So now, asking her out on a first date has become even more difficult because you fear that you will be among the losers she declined to go out with.

But you finally gathered enough courage to ask her out. She almost laughed at first but she eventually she realized that it was not a joke and she finally agreed to give your date a try. After a sudden stroke of elation, it suddenly dawned on you that this is indeed your first date ever.To help you get by, you may find the following tips useful for a hopeless romantic first dater like you.

Look your very best. She might end up gasping for air in laughter one she is seen you all dressed-up but that is normal when dating best friends. As she is so used to seeing you in your worst, she will definitely appreciate that you made the effort of preparing for your first formal date. No matter how confident she is, she also will definitely put on a show for you and wow you with a fabulous dress you have never seen her wear before. Compliment her with the way she looks and tell her that you really appreciate the effort.

Be a gentleman. Since you already know your date on a personal basis, try to show her your more gallant side. Endear her with flowers and even with her favourite chocolates. Open the car door and lift the dinner seat for her. Order champagne and have a toast to an exciting new stage in your friendship.

Tell her what you feel. As a person who has heard all her rants about past dates and boyfriends, you, of all people would know what she likes and does not like. Show her respect and listen to her stories. Be the best friend she knew and more. Romanticize the night by telling her about your feelings as if you are telling poetry. She already knows you and you know that she will believe you.

Do not pressure her. After the night, just give her a thought to ponder but avoid asking her about her feelings if she does not seem up to it. Give her time and space to think about it.

Lastly, give her a good night kiss. A kiss can make or break a date and knowing if you really can advance your relationship to something more serious can be determined by a kiss. From there, it is up to both of you to decide if you want to date again or not.
Trying to date your best friend is really a difficult endeavour to take. But if you really feel that you love her deeply, the things that go with it are surely all worth it.
