20 QUESTIONS

Stuck in traffic? Waiting in the grocery line? The great thing about playing this dating game is that you can play it anywhere. Either you or your partner begins by thinking of a famous person, a character, an animal or something else. Then, the other person will have 20 questions to guess what the other one is thinking of.

STARE OFF

Remember when you were a kid and had staring contests? Well, this dating game goes something like that. You and your partner will stare deeply into each other's eyes for as long as you both can without blinking. You can also play this game anywhere, although, other people watching will either think you are really into each other or really crazy.

SCAVENGER HUNT

You can create a scavenger hunt just for fun or for a special occasion. Leave a note on the door for when your partner gets home with a clue to the next note. Do this as many times as you please to make it more or less difficult for the other person. The final note will lead to you wherever you may be. You could wait in bed with lingerie on, in the bathtub, or anywhere else you want to be found!

TRUTH OR DARE

This dating game can not only be fun alone but with another couple. The person who begins truth or dare will ask one of the participants, "Truth or Dare". If they choose truth, you can ask them anything and they cannot lie. If they choose dare, they have to do whatever you say. This can be a great way to learn things about your partner, or at the least, get them to do something funny.

2 TRUTHS AND A LIE

2 truths and a lie is a great game for a new couple to play in order to get to know each other. The beginning participant will say three things, one of which is a lie and the other two are true facts about them. The other person then must guess which one is the lie. This dating game is a fun way to get to know one another.

I SPY

This is another one of the dating games that can be played just about anywhere. You play this in a waiting room, in line, or in your living room. First, one of you will look around the room and choose something. Once you know what you are thinking of, you say, "I spy with my little eye something..." and then give a small clue about the object. The other person will have 3 chances to guess.

KISSING GAMES

While some of the other dating games can be played in most places, you may want to keep this one in your bedroom. There are a few different ways you could turn kissing into a game. Time how long you can kiss, choose places on each other's bodies to kiss, etc. While you're at it, see if you can break the world record for the world's longest kiss. Get creative!

NAUGHTY DICE

Another bedroom game, Naughty Dice, can be a fun way to spice things up. Grab a piece of paper and create the rules. This can include one die or two. For example, with one die, you could create rules for each number. Roll a 2, you have to kiss your partner on the cheek, roll a 3, you have to kiss the body part of your partner's choosing for 1 minute, and so on. If you have a pair of dice, you could make the first roll an action such as kiss, spank, rub, etc. and the second dice a body part. You make the rules!

BOARD GAMES

Board games are not just for children, they can be fun for adults as well! Have a fun competition with each other on a lazy Sunday night for a change of pace. If you want to spice things up a bit, you can play strip tease board games. You can turn any board game into a striptease game whether it be Scrabble, Monopoly or a good old-fashioned card game! Set rules based on points in the game, levels, etc.

VIDEO GAMES

Similarly to board games, you could play video or online games. Whoever loses the round has to take off an article of clothing until both parties are fully naked. On the other hand, you could take a shot for each loss. Make your own rules for this, and have fun with it!

DIRTY POETRY

You can play dirty poetry a couple different ways. One way would be to write dirty poems about each other and then read them aloud. If you want to make it a bit more challenging, grab some old magazines and cut out different words. Paste the words to a paper to create a dirty poem for the other person. Cosmopolitan magazine is a great magazine for this game.

DOUBLE DATE CHARADES

Charades is fun to do with other couples. Team with or against your partner, and work with another person to play. Write different movies, songs, etc on pieces of paper and throw them into a bowl. The first teammate will pull out a sheet of paper, then they will act that out. The other person on the team will try to beat the clock to guess what the other person is trying to say with their actions.

What Are the Benefits of Using Dating Games?

Comments Off on How To Be A Good Boyfriend According To Women?

​Women may say that they are simple and straightforward about what they want in a relationship. However, some things a guy is just going to have to know without asking, regarding being a good boyfriend.

Similar to men, women will secretly test the guy they are dating to see if they are indeed quality boyfriend material. It is essential that men pay attention to body language and other unspoken cues.

Avoid the corny and overused pick up lines that will make her cringe, and put the information in this article to good use. If you want to know how to be a good boyfriend, you have to go beyond the expected qualities that you should possess.

  • ​You should be a good listener and conversationalist
  • ​You should know how to make her laugh, surprise her, and be in touch with intuition
  • ​It is better to be a good boyfriend than strive to be a perfect boyfriend

​Honestly, when it comes to learning how to be a good boyfriend, men need to realize that there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Every woman and relationship is different,  and there are specific nuances that can make things work out smoothly.

It is better than men learn about essential things that they should be doing more or less of, and naturally integrating into their dating behaviors.

Valuing Friendship As A Foundation

​When it comes to being a boyfriend, too often, people forget that you have to be a friend first. Men should enjoy connecting to their date over shared likes and dislikes, give breathing room when needed,
and not try too hard.

Also, to be a good boyfriend, it is essential to respect the friends that a girlfriend always has.  Yes, men may not always get along perfectly with a girlfriend's friends. However, men must realize that a woman will trust
and consider her longtime friend's opinions about you and the relationship, so play nice.

To learn how to be a good boyfriend, it is essential to learn how to deal with a girlfriend's friends if there are
problems. Namely, a girlfriend's friends may love talking crap about the love interest, go out of their way to cause problems out of jealousy or pathology, or are secretly into stealing sloppy seconds.

Learning how to navigate difficult friends of a girlfriend, without alienating anyone, being too rude, or making things uncomfortable is a necessary skill. Give a girlfriend and her friends some space. Avoid trash talking bad friends or being overly clingy to keep a girlfriend all to yourself, and stay consistent and awesome.

If a guy wants to keep a long term relationship with a lady, chances are most of a girlfriend's friends aren't
going away anytime soon.

​Listening Skills Still Rate

Men get a bad rep for not being active listeners or paying enough attention to what women are saying. Why not change this? When having a conversation, or a girlfriend just wants to share about what happened that day, or talk about something valuable, pay attention.

Make sure to be genuinely listening patiently and respectfully, because a woman might quiz a guy later about that time she was talking about something to see if you were listening, or playing pretend.
Men won't have to know all the juicy details, but at least be aware of the gist of what was said and why it was important.

According to an article in the Daily Mail, it turns out both men and women have listening problems.
Men can listen to their friends for fifteen minutes easily but may tune a girlfriend out after a mere six minutes. Women are also apt to listen and focus to their friends more than their boyfriends or significant other.

Despite this tidbit of info, making an effort to listen to a girlfriend is critical for relationship success.

In addition to being a good listener and paying attention, it pays for a boyfriend to have a good reaction time to words or events. If a guy is more aware and understands his girlfriend's unique needs and personality, he will be able to choose a better action to remedy something. Basically, don't offer a girlfriend a cliched solution, because it may prove you weren't listening when it mattered most.

Getting to learn more about what your girlfriend likes, dislikes, or daydreams about can help when selecting a romantic gift to show you are paying attention and care.


​​​Let Her Win An Argument

Man Woman Arguing

When dating, arguments will inevitably happen. However, how a guy handles and argument will either help or halt a relationship.

It might not be fun to lose an argument, or a guy might really make some good points that deserve being recognized. Let's face it, it when it comes to greasing the wheels of a relationship, it is better for a guy to give in and let his girlfriend win most arguments without protest.

There are certain types of arguments that a guy will never win. Even if a guy is right, he will lose, because winning an argument causes sore losers and may encourage irritating bragging rights.

If a girlfriend has a bad mood, let her blow off the steam. It is best to avoid fighting via texting or emails, and they have to be followed up with a real-life conversation for closure's sake.  Also, arguing for the sake of arguing, doing something competitive, or if a guy is unsure about how right they are is not worth it.

Most likely, arguments will lead to people sleeping alone, harboring resentment, and tiptoeing around who will be the bigger person first. Guys should learn some humility and not be pushy to win an argument all
the time, unless they like being single, or are being trodden upon in a relationship constantly.

Don't forget, in addition to letting a woman win an argument; it is helpful if a guy admits he overreacted, was wrong, or tries to patch things up.

Conversation And Connection

​To make a genuine and long-lasting connection with a girlfriend, it is critical that a guy understand the importance of good conversation. Learning to be in the present moment and focused during a
conversation is important, as a girlfriend will realize if a guy isn't making an effort.

Dating is a way to test out what is desired in a partner with the possibility of marriage, or even having kids in the future. It's no fun struggling to have a conversation with someone, who you were only talking to because they had a fetching appearance, and not much else going on.

During a conversation, connect to a girlfriend by touching her shoulder, looking into her eyes, or holding her hand. Make it a point to say "I love you," if the relationship has been going on seriously for a significant enough time.

In the early stages of a relationship, and throughout dating a woman, it is important for a guy to show and verbally tell his lady that he appreciates her. A good boyfriend gives compliments to their girlfriend, lets her know she is beautiful and showers her with affection.

Build a meaningful connection by making dinner plans, or take an impromptu getaway for the weekend when she has time off.

Also, do not forget the power and importance of laughter for health, connection, and sharing in a feel-good moment. Enjoy some stand-up comedy, watch funny films, and be able to laugh at each other to feel comfortable being yourself. It's no fun putting on airs and being stuffy and uptight all the time out of fear.

​​Those Little Things

Couple Holding Hands

Despite progress in society regarding gender roles, women are still often expected to take care of cooking, cleaning, and still manage to keep a job and look lovely all the time despite exhaustion.

One unspoken thing that will make you great boyfriend material and a potential future spouse is to do the following things, especially if co-habitating with a girlfriend.

  • ​Men should do the dishes without being asked, or offer to wash dishes
    after a meal
  • ​A guy should be able to create an amazing dish or two and surprise his
    girlfriend with an at-home date
  • ​Cleaning up around the apartment is a huge plus, it's better not wait
    for things to get bad

​If a guy is willing to do little things to make life a little easier, shows some thoughtfulness for his girlfriend's time and energy, he is more likely to melt her heart faster than with a bouquet of flowers.

Beyond the issues that many ladies complain about regarding men not washing dishes or cleaning, it important to keep up appearances with grooming, dressing well, and being a gentleman.

Yes, both men and women have their moments when they will dress down and let everything hang out, but it is best to try to spruce up and stay groomed more times than not. Take time learning a girlfriend's quirks and preferences, develop relationship skills, and enjoy the good moments between the ups and downs of life.

Plans are laid, your mouth is dry, and somehow you just can’t stop your hands from shaking. You’re supposed to be picking your date up in an hour, yet your hair won’t do what you want, your palms are sweaty and nervous energy surrounds your body like a cocoon.

Dating is like a game, the more you do it, the better you get. Some people have natural talent when it comes to dating, and some people have to try, try and try again. But like a game, you have a much better chance of winning if you keep in mind the rules of play.

Look Your Best

Looks aren’t everything, but good hygiene, neat appearance and a pleasant body odor can come in handy when playing the dating game. Take some time to put yourself together. Your date will appreciate the effort, and it shows that you care about your appearance.

Confidence is a Man’s or Woman’s Best Friend

To win the dating game every time, confidence is required. Confidence is sexy. Both men and women are attracted to it, so it’s important that you gain some. This doesn’t mean you should be cocky, egotistical or jerky. It just means you should seem like you’re confident being you, and all that entails.

Stimulating Conversation

You’ll gain some extra points in the dating game if you can make your date laugh, talk and enjoy themselves through conversation. If you can keep your date interested, the second date is just around the corner. Pull out some of your amusing or funny stories, and ask your date some questions, without getting too personal. Don’t talk about yourself too much either. Instead, just try to go with the flow, and keep the conversation as natural and free flowing as possible, without any awkward silences.

Smile

Smiling alone can help you win a second date. Smiling is attractive, and puts people at ease. Try to smile as often as possible, without seeming like a grinning lunatic.

Manners

Use your manners and be polite. Nothing is as big a turn off as someone who is rude and obnoxious. If you want to woo your date then it’s in your best interests to be as polite as possible, whenever possible.

By playing by the rules, you too can win the dating game every time and earn yourself a second, third or fourth date.
