    What makes a date?

    You might think a date is a date when the guy thinks it is just a meeting, because again we have this whole romance around how the whole dating process is going to work, but trust me you will know when he is in date mood when he will start doing all those chivalrous things and starts being romantic until the man start to really pouring on the charm and being romantic he is not in date mood.

    I had a fascinating story with another couple we introduced. This man is extremely, extremely successful, very, very high level position with a major corporation, and the woman is also a lawyer and quiet successful, and they gone out twice and they were sitting in a very nice restaurant, having a nice dinner and fine bottle of wine and a conversation and she just mentioned about well now that it is our second date and he stopped and said a date and she said yes, man woman, restaurant, dinner, wine, date.

    You see, even though they have been out now two times, he was just still kind of getting to know her and this is the process for him and he was going through an analytical process to see if she might be the one and then he will have the date. Sometimes you might have to go out with the man two, three, four times before it is actually a date, but trust me, you will know, there will be a change when it is truly a date.

    The romance will be poured on and you will know it, but your job is to be there and give him all the signals in no uncertain terms that you are interested in getting to know him and that you are interested in a romantic relationships. We are not talking about being a slut but letting him know that you really enjoy seeing him that he can feel totally free to call you again that she love to see him again that you think that he is interesting that you think he is intelligent and that you think he is really a great guy.

    And only when you get him in date mood will he pour on the charm and will he come up to the plate and pass all those things, jump those hurdles that we have set up in that Prince Charming test. So, it is up to you.
