Be Honest

This is a dating tip that applies across the board, for men and women alike. Be honest, especially about who you are and what you want. Not only will you have some major explaining to do if you get caught in a lie, but imagine telling your guy you love bowling, then being stuck bowling in a league every Friday night.


Don't Play Games

Along with being honest comes another dating tip from guys that kind of goes hand in hand: don't play games. It's not fun, it's not fair, and it's not going to work, anyway.


Don't Mother

Your guy already has a mother, and he doesn't need another one. As much as you might be tempted to do his laundry and dishes, or help him balance his budget, unless he asks you to, and you want to do these things, don't. He's a big boy. He can do them himself.


Don't Discount the Nice Guys

Every single guy I talked to gave me this same exact bit of dating advice: do not discount the value of nice guys. They complain that girls don't want to date nice guys, they only want to date jerks, but then once the jerks screw them over, they want the nice guys again. Skip the middle part. Stay with the nice guy, the one who treats you with respect.


Play Hard to Get... a Little

For most guys, a lot of the fun in a relationship is the thrill of the chase. Play hard to get, a little. Let him be the first one to text in the morning, or to suggest a date on Friday night.

Famous Quotes

To give oneself earnestly to the duties due to men, and, while respecting spiritual beings, to keep aloof from them, may be called wisdom.


Texting is Fun

Speaking of texting, here's another dating tip from guys that kind of surprised me: guys hate talking on the phone, but they love getting texts from girls they like. Send a friendly, sweet, or sexy text once in a while. He'll love it!


Don't Sleep with Him on the First Date

No matter how tempted you might be, no matter how much he swears it won't change his opinion of you, don't sleep with a guy on your first date. Guys aren't sure why they're allowed to want to sleep with you on a first date, but you're not allowed to want to sleep with them, but the double standard exists, so be aware of it.

With so many great dating tips from guys, right in their own words, you have an edge in the dating pool now! I loved hearing the dating advice my guy friends had for me, and though none of it was really a surprise (except maybe for that last one), it was good to have everything we already sort of knew confirmed for sure. Have you gotten another dating tip from a guy you know? Do share!

What about kissing on the first date? LOL.

A friend of mine told me if we easily gave a man a kiss on a first date, he would misuse us.
