Man Law #36 – “Man Talk” – When you first start dating a new women, KEEP PAST RELATIONSHIPS in the PAST.
The first few times you go out with her, don’t talk about who you used to date or who she used to date. This may cause her to attribute feelings she felt with her ex – towards you! OR she might place you in the Friends Zone. She might look to you to explain why things didn’t work out with HER ex…this is not where you want to be.
You are here now. If the topic of relationships does come up, ask her what sorts of things shes looking for in a relationship? If she says shes enjoying the single lifestyle, chances are, she’s not looking for anything serious…but if she says she’s tired of men who only want one thing, she’s probably not going to be happy with casual hooking up with no exclusivity… Keep the conversations lighthearted the first few times you meet her…there will be plenty of chances to talk to her about deep subjects if you two get past the first few dates…
Keep it simple, Make the first few dates SMALL TALK only.
