If I meet a girl and get her number, the first time we go out shouldn't be a three-hour opera and dinner afterwards. If you guys have a great time, you're both left wanting more." —Greg G."If a girl and I end up hooking up quickly, it doesn't necessarily mean I've written her off. For example, 'Hey, I've got an extra ticket to this show tonight. ' Go out and do things I'd want to do, and then invite me. Be willing to embrace the things men love." —Sam M."I get frustrated when I feel like I'm constantly the one driving the conversation—it happens to me a lot and it feels a little unfair.
That way you can get a feel for what he's normally like around his buddies and it'll let you both relax a bit more.
You can tell a lot about someone by who they surround themselves with." —Corey O."I like when a girl gets physical with me, but not in the sexual sense. I love when she'll touch my arms or something like that as we're talking.
It shows me that she's genuinely interested in spending time with me as opposed to wanting to be wined and dined regardless of who she's with." —Nate N."If the guy doesn't say something and take the check off the table to pay, it's probably fair to assume that you're going Dutch.
There are different reasons that a guy might not pick up the tab (some that might not have anything to do with you), but if you're into him, avoid looking too disappointed.
And, because of that, at some point most of us want to find someone (or another someone - I'm not leaving polyamorists out here) to have an emotional relationship and share our lives both inside and outside kink with.
Don't ask your friends to tell you everything they can because you can end up with a tainted view of what to expect.If you want something, be specific and avoid causing yourself unnecessary stress.We're usually pretty open to new ideas." —Adrian B."Please don't critique or be too harsh about someone's sexual performance the first time you hook up with him.If it doesn't happen in the beginning, he'll think it'll never happen." —Tyler L."It can take the edge off to meet with a group of friends.Invite your guy and his crew to hang in a big group.A good example is Collar Me, which is designed for bringing perverts together. If you're looking for a long term relationship, you don't want to get involved with someone who just cares about the sex.What it actually is, is a mess of fake profiles, professionals touting for business and inactive account city. On the other hand, you do want a sex life, and for kinky people in a vanilla crowd, you want to know if you're going to end up with your future Non Gender Specific Life Partner fleeing after you crack out the violet wand.When I hear about a girl's man, I'm assuming we probably shouldn't be on that date period.If she literally can't keep his name out of her mouth for a couple of hours, it makes me feel like she's clearly not over past issues.I like it best when someone can counter me with questions of their own." —Noah A."Don't hate on other girls.I actually had one girl, while we were in the middle of a conversation, look over at another girl and say, 'Eww, look at that girl's dress.' The way she said it sounded so bitchy and I wasn't into it at all. The guy will almost always hold the door open, pay for dinner, etc., but it's still nice to hear a thank you and know that it's all appreciated. I've almost come to stop expecting them so it's especially nice when I hear them.
