Are You Date-Worthy?

Think you’re date-worthy?  Think again. Think you’re date-worthy? Think again.

If you find yourself going through a dating drought, you might be questioning whether or not you are date-worthy. If girls have been turning you down or standing you up, it may be time to evaluate your date-worthiness.


Being date-worthy isn’t about having Johnny Depp good looks (though that certainly helps), or waving around tons of cash. Women aren’t (usually) that superficial; they care about who you are as a person and the qualities you possess. If you are suffering from a dating dry spell, here are a few tips to make yourself more date-worthy.

Mind Your Manners

You don’t have to have as polite as a southern-bred boy who says “ma’am” and tips his hat, but you should definitely have good manners. Do you open doors for women on a regular basis? Do you use all the right utensils at dinner – or eat like a slob? Act like a caveman when you’re hanging out with your friends; but when girls are around, be a gentleman.

Manners also extend to texting or checking emails on your phone. Women want your undivided attention on a date, so if you’re disrespecting her by fiddling with your Blackberry – don’t expect a second date.

Learn the Art of Communication

Do you talk shop on dates? Bore the girl to tears gabbing about people she doesn’t know, work she doesn’t care about? Or – even worse – are you your favorite topic of conversation? Endless self-promotion screams desperation. Yeah, you want the girl to know your strengths and good points, but let her find those out on her own. You’re not doing yourself any favors by telling her what a nice, stable, solid guy you are. Nice, solid, stable guys don’t need to advertise.

Bring up interesting subjects and ask insightful questions. Listen – really listen – when your date talks. Maintain eye contact, and don’t rush to put in your two cents. Show the girl that you really care about what she has to say; don’t give her the impression you’re impatient for her to finish.

Properly Maintain Your Appearance

Not everyone admits it, but looks are important. Don’t worry if you don’t have a movie-star mug though, as long as you keep up your appearance. Shave carefully and regularly, and get your hair cut before it becomes scraggly. Make sure your nails are clean and well-trimmed, and take good care of your skin. Wear clothes that are current, clean, and that fit you well. Always splash on a bit of cologne before you leave your house – but not so much that it’s overpowering.

Here are a few other tips that will add to your date-worthiness:

  • Be nice to your mother (but don’t be a Mama’s boy).
  • Learn to cook.
  • Volunteer for a good cause.
  • Be well-read
  • Get a pet - it shows off your nurturing side.
  • Be self-confident, but not cocky.
  • Be successful, but don’t brag.
  • Having a strong sense of self.
  • Give sincere compliments
  • Be willing to take risks for love.

With practice and patience, any guy can become date-worthy. Let go of any relationship hang-ups or commitment issues you’ve been holding on to. You need to be emotionally healthy and mature to attract women, so it’s time to grow up. The world is full of single women looking for love, so don’t get discouraged if you haven’t yet found The One. She’s out there somewhere, just waiting for you to become date-worthy.
