A bit of mystery is alluring. It makes people want to figure you out, makes them want to find out more about you. An air of mystery is exciting for people who don’t want emotions laid out on a plate. These people prefer a bit of a challenge. They want the clues so they can unscramble them to discover the real you. But there’s a little art to being mysterious because get it wrong and you come off as a tease, and no one wants that.
1. Make Him Wait!
A great first tip for how to cultivate an air of mystery when dating is to not seem too eager by responding to calls and messages straight away. Even if you really like the guy and want to get in touch with him immediately, make him miss you by playing a little game of cat and mouse every now and then! Make him wonder what you are doing and who you are with, but don’t let him know that he has already won you over completely!
2. Keep Some Independence
Though it’s obviously great to be spending a lot of time together, it’s important to keep a degree of personal independence when you are dating a new love interest. Not always making yourself completely available every time they might want to do something will let your new partner know that you have your own life and interests and it will also make the time you do spend together more exciting and special.
3. Don’t Tell Your Life Story
In the early stages of dating, it really isn’t necessary to tell somebody your entire life story in the restaurant before the main course even arrives. Maintain an air of mystery by picking and choosing which pieces of information you share on each date. If you really like each other he will stick around long enough to hear the whole story eventually. Revealing too much all at once could do two negative things: scare him away; or make you look like you are looking for too much commitment too early.
4. Be Unique
Don’t conform or change yourself in the early stages to try to match what you think your new man might like, Be yourself and be unique and he will be even more intrigued by the real you than the false you. If you like the idea of pink hair, then go for it; if you have a controversial opinion, then don’t be scared to share it. Your unique nature is what will make you even more mysterious.
5. Be Funny
Do not be afraid to let your sense of humor come through. Your date will have so much more fun if you are relaxed and funny than if you are sitting back and making him do all the work. Your sense of humor says a lot about you, so letting him in on what you think is funny will open up a little of the mystery and leave him wanting more.
6. Be Confident
Oozing confidence can be one of the sexiest things you can do in the early stages of dating somebody new. Being charismatic and comfortable in your own skin can be just as mysterious as it is sexy, and your new man will be wanting to get to know you more to find out exactly why you are so confident in every situation.
7. Talk about Broad Interests
There is nothing more mysterious than a woman who has all her fingers in different pies, so to speak! Let your new man know that you are interested in a wide range of topics and you will become even more of an enigmatic conundrum to him. Don’t box yourself into a traditional stereotype; show him you are different!
Like I said at the beginning – don’t tease, intrigue. Be mysterious but not a closed book. Everybody always wonders what caused the Mona Lisa’s enigmatic style – wouldn’t you want to have the same aura to you?
