How to Date Girls Respectfully in Los Angeles
People dating in LA are becoming jaded. Slowly, but surely. There is even a collection of common dating profile expressions that disappointed LA girls seem to have put together. According to one of these “Tinder translations,” you can tell someone is only looking for casual sex if the profile says they’re only in LA for a couple of days. “I’m new to LA” means “I don’t have a car.” A self-described “foodie” is insufferable. “I love flying planes” and “angel investor” mean “You have to know that I am rich.” Finally, “I love what I do” means you have a job, but you’re incredibly boring.
Escaping the Stereotypes
If you want to date girls in Los Angeles (or anywhere else for that matter), showing respect is a must. Apart from avoiding the clichés above, don’t focus on appearances and speak to girls courteously. This means: don’t use dirty words around her, don’t tell dirty jokes, and don’t swear. She might not have anything against any of these, but you never know as you’re still getting to know each other.
Never joke about her body. In some situations, girls can be more sensitive than guys, so don’t joke about just anything that comes to mind.
On Sexual Advances, Time, and Attention
It may be best to wait for her to make the first move. Give her time and attention. No woman is immune to the gift of time because this is something that can’t be bought. She sees and experiences this gift clearly. Ask her questions about her life and listen to her answers. If she asks you about your job, don’t try to impress her by bragging about your achievements. Being proud of one’s accomplishments is one thing; boasting is another. Showing respect can be as simple as holding the door open or giving her your jacket when she’s cold.
Other Clichés to Avoid
If you’re a man who appreciates “the finer things in life,” there’s no need to make a point of it. It screams insufferable like nothing else. “I’m a gentleman” is not convincing. It seems opening doors isn’t enough. Finally, “I value generosity and humility” may be perceived as “I make a big deal out of tipping servers.”
Don’t forget respect pays off. They say, “Show me a guy who treats women with respect, I will show you a guy who receives respect in return.”
