You basically sit through two hours of torture watching some crappy movie about god-knows-what, and when it finally ends and the lights turn on, you’ve virtually spent two boring and awkward-filled hours with a complete stranger! And oh yeah, take all of this advice about not going to the movies, and times it by 10 when it comes to dinner dates! Unless you are older than 50, take her someplace fun like Dave and Buster’s, karaoking, mini-golfing, a fair, a park, dancing, an event, even go kart racing.
All of these ideas beat the hell out of doing nothing but watching a movie or watching each other eat!
You see it on the red carpet in Hollywood and at swanky restaurants. However, senior dating does come with its own unique challenges…
A man who is clearly in his 50’s or 60’s has a luscious 20-something woman clinging possessively to his arm.
Kissing her at the end of the date is okay, but waiting until the end of the date to kiss her for the first time is not.
If you have to wait until the very end of the date to lock lips with your woman, you’ve done something wrong.
You try desperately and unsuccessfully to come up with funny comments relating to the movie.
Now, don’t get me wrong, nice guys can often finish first with women (as my friend Kevin Alexander will tell you) but trying to be too nice, or trying to be someone you’re not, never works!
Guys who try to play into the nice-guy role are guys who just don’t have the confidence to be true to who they really are. They don’t have to “try” to be nice, they just are.
Guys who read too much pick-up artist stuff tend to believe this fallacy.
A high-quality woman, however, will not put up with this trivial behavior.
