How To Be A 1st Class Date

Happy Dating coupleConnecting with thousands of people, just like you, is fun and free to do on our easy to use You’vePulled mobile dating site. Once you’ve messaged, texted, flirted, and phone chatted with a sexy single that you have a crush on, you’ll obviously want to arrange a date.

On a hot first date, the impression that you make should definitely be memorable and enticing, if you want to be in with a chance of progressing to date number 2.

Follow our practical tips, to instantly upgrade your dating style, from average to 1st class…

Set An Intention

While you’re grooming and getting ready to finally meet your POI, on a first date, it really helps to think about how you would like the encounter to pan out.

Visualise the two of you relaxing and enjoying each other’s company, with conversation that flows effortlessly and naturally. Set the intention to be present and attentive, and to enjoy a fun and memorable experience. Trust that the outcome of the date is highly favourable.

Be Flirtatious

Body language plays a huge part in how another person perceives you. Greet your date with a smile and a friendly approach. There will be plenty of time for flirtatious play, as you build a rapport and establish a connection.

Pay attention to your date’s body language, and mirror it discreetly. Smile and laugh when they do, and use eye contact to make an intense nonverbal statement. Lean in slightly to let your date know that you’re interested. If they respond with a gentle, playful touch on your arm, it’s a sign that they’re interested in you too!

Be Interested & Interesting

The more interested you appear in your date, the more interested in you they will be. Talk about a variety of date-friendly topics, and use humour to make your date feel relaxed and at ease. Engage them in conversation that is enthralling and entertaining. If you know a subject/topic well, it’s fine to share your knowledge. But avoid being boastful, and be mindful that you don’t dominate the entire conversation.

When listening to your date talk about their interests, pay attention and ask thoughtful questions that demonstrate that you’re interested in what they have to say.

Show Off Good Manners

While appearance and attitude certainly go a long way towards impressing and influencing your date’s opinion of you, good manners are equally important.

First off, ensure that you practice good personal hygiene and grooming habits. It’s essential that you’re respectful at all times. Avoid fiddling with your clothes or hair, or using exaggerated hand gestures when you’re conversing. Talking with your mouth full, picking your nose, and being rude and crude, are unacceptable and instant turn-offs.

Old-school chivalry, like holding a door open for your date, walking on the outside of the pavement, and standing up when a woman stands, are still widely considered to be charming habits that create a lasting, and positive, first impression.

Give Sincere Compliments

Women love to feel good about their appearance. Paying your date sincere compliments about the way she looks, or the way she acts, will make her feel special. Telling her that she has an intelligent mind and good conversation skills will earn you double brownie points!

Be Genuine

The best and most effective way of making a great first impression, and creating a connection with someone that you want to get to know, is to simply be yourself. Be friendly and approachable, and be prepared to let your guard down a little. Just be you, and let your personality and charm shine through so that they dazzle and impress your date.

Why Should You Try Our Phone Chat Line?

Brunette woman leaning against a wall smiling whilst chatting on the phoneIt’s 2021 and there are hundreds of different dating apps and sites and ways to chat to other singles, so why should you try a phone chat line?

Chatting on the phone can be a fantastic way to get to know someone.

You can tell a lot about a person through their voice, so by starting your relationship journey on the phone, you’re more likely to be able to tell if you’re compatible, than if you can see a couple of photos and a short paragraph on a screen.

It’s a lot easier to build a connection when you can have a proper phone chat conversation, than just sending loads of written messages as you can get to know the person much better by letting conversation flow.

Our phone chat line is also a great way of seeing someone’s personality and sense of humour.

This is a really important aspect of getting to know someone, whether it’s a friendship or romantic relationship, as you need to be compatible enough to get along easily. By using our great phone chat line, you can tell this pretty quickly, so you won’t be wasting your time messaging someone for weeks, only to learn you aren’t compatible at all.

You’ve Pulled’s long established phone chat line is one of the best around. With hundreds of singles chatting every day, join in the fun on your phone now – you’ve got nothing to lose!

Valentine’s Day Date Ideas During Lockdown

Closeup of couple making heart shape with handsWith Valentine’s Day approaching, most of us have gotten used to being stuck indoors a lot of the time as mandated lockdowns have become the norm, face to face dating is currently a thing of the past, and whether you’re single or in a relationship, dating has now taken on a completely different form.

Virtual dating has become the new normal, with more people than ever using online dating and phone or text chat lines to find The One.

The first date, however, has become completely different. Rather than meeting for a coffee, going out to dinner, or visiting the cinema, couples are having to become more creative in their dating life, with technology being the focus.

So, with that in mind, how can you begin or continue dating someone without being able to meet up? Below we have listed a few ideas that might give you some inspiration.

 

Have a romantic candlelit dinner.

Yes, you can still do this! With the wonders of video calls and things like Zoom (which is more private as you don’t have to reveal your number), you can cook simultaneously, or order a takeaway and sit and eat together. Romance doesn’t need to be dead!

 

Play games together.

Not being able to be in the same room, doesn’t mean things have to be boring. There are plenty of online-based games you can play together. Most games consoles have online capabilities so you can play together, or alternatively there are things like Geoguessr, where you can play against each other and see who can work out where you are in the world first.

 

Watch a movie or TV show you both love.

Seeing as the cinemas are closed, you can make your own one at home. Schedule a time, choose what to watch and watch it at the same time. You could either video call at the same time so you can talk about it, or message each other whilst watching or at the end to see what you both thought about it. Everyone is watching more TV and movies than ever before, but there must be something left you can watch together!

 

Write each other letters.

If you’d like technology to take a back seat for a while, you could write to each other. It’s a great way to get your feelings out and you could also send each other little gifts if you’d like.

It’s much more personal than reading a typed message on a screen, whether you’re either getting to know each other, or have known each other ages, it gives a much more personal touch to communication.

 

Chat on the phone.

Most people get so used to texting or messaging on multiple apps, they don’t seem to connect with each other through the phone anymore.

Schedule a time when you’re both free, to just sit and chat to each other. It’s a great change to give each other your full attention.

If you’ve not met yet, it’s a great way to see if you’ve got chemistry, or if you’ve been together a while, it gives you a chance to really connect with each other if you feel like you might have lost that whilst being apart for so long.

 

If you’ve yet to meet someone you’d like to date this Valentine’s Day, get yourself on You’ve Pulled and get chatting to singles from all over the UK on our great phone chat or mobile dating services today!

Date Ideas Whilst Social Distancing

Dating hasn’t been the most important thing on people’s minds the last few months, but there’s no need to stop dating entirely!

It’s still possible to have dates, they’re just going to be a little different to normal due to social distancing.

We’ve listed a few date ideas for you to try, below.

Video call date

Whether it’s your first date or your twenty first, video chat is a great way to have a proper conversation. You’ll be able to see each other, either for the first time or just because you haven’t seen each other in a while. Some apps also have built in games you can play to add a bit of extra fun.

Watch a movie together

Find a movie or a TV series that you both want to see and watch it together. You’ll have someone to discuss it with during or after which is always fun to do as you unpick it and see different things. You can get some snacks and snuggle up on the sofa to make it like a “date night”.

Take a walk together

As restrictions are being gradually lifted, we can meet friends outside. So, whilst keeping a 2m distance, you could go for a walk in your local park or along the seafront if you’re on the coast. It’ll give you a chance to meet up if you never have, or see each other if it’s been a long time.

Cook together

Plan what you’re both going to have for dinner and cook it ‘together’. You can give each other tips or one could teach the other their recipe. You could video chat at the same time to see what each other is doing. You could even eat it together and make it romantic!

Have a ‘naughty’ phone call!

We are all missing the intimacy that social distancing is forcing upon us, but there is a way you can keep a little bit alive – phone sex! Whether you’ve done it loads of times or never tried it before, now is a great time to do it. Just make sure you’re both in the mood!

If you’re currently single and want to give these things a try, there are loads of single guys and girls from all over the UK chatting on You’ve Pulled so join today!

How Talking On The Phone Benefits Your Relationship

Regardless of whether you’ve been together ages or you’ve just started dating, talking on the phone is a key part of maintaining a healthy relationship.

Misinterpretation is one of the main issues with communicating via messages as there is no tone of voice and you are unable to fully interpret what someone may mean purely by reading text on a screen.

Talking on the phone means you can hear the person’s mood and their tone of voice and how they’re coming across.

This can help avoid any misunderstandings which may lead to disagreements and arguments.

We know how convenient it is to text each other but with the possibility of spelling mistakes and abbreviations, you may not be able to convey your thoughts as well as you would on the phone. Sometimes it’s quicker to just ring someone and explain and then you’re also going to get immediate answers rather than hanging around waiting.

Speaking on the phone regularly can strengthen your connection with each other.

Whether you’re in a new relationship or have been together for a long time.

Being able to hear each other’s voices is much more personal and intimate than reading words on a screen.

It also means you’re more likely to be giving them your full attention because replying to a message means you can leave your phone and walk away – which you’re not likely to do when talking on the phone.

Getting to know someone at the beginning of a relationship is easier when you have chats on the phone.

You’re able to get to know someone’s personality and get a much better idea of what they’re like rather than by messages alone.

Something that can be a big issue for some people is waiting for a reply when you’re messaging someone.

Some people see it as a continuous conversation and expect replies as though you’re face to face, but other people don’t and may then reply to a message but walk away from their phone so the other people is left waiting for a response. When talking on the phone this is unlikely to happen because there would be some awkward silences if someone didn’t answer a question!

Whether you’ve just started dating or have been married for years, make sure you chat to each other on the phone and keep that connection.

If you’re currently single, you can chat to other singles on You’ve Pulled’s brilliant chat line. Start the relationship as you mean to go on! Get chatting to singles from all over the UK on your phone today.

6 Ways To Tell Someone Likes You

Want to know what signs to look for to tell if someone likes you? Here are our top 6 to keep an eye out for.

 

  1. Mutual eye contact.

If someone is interested in you they are much more likely to try and catch your eye and will maintain eye contact whilst talking to you.

Maintaining eye contact elevates your oxytocin levels and increases mutual attraction!

Just make sure that your eye contact doesn’t end up verging on staring as that’s rude and might scare your date!

 

  1. Finding excuses to touch you.

When someone likes you’ll they’ll quite often go out of their way to find excuses to touch you.

This might be lightly touching your arm as they talk to you or finding an excuse to hold your hand.

Another way they could touch you is by “preening”. Picking fluff off your clothing or straightening your collar or tie could be an indication that they’re interested in you.

 

  1. Inward leaning.

The way a person is sitting is an important gauge as to whether they like you. People tend to lean towards people and try to close the gap between you. For example uncrossing their arms/legs or leaning over a table or if you’re sitting next to each other, they’d be likely turned towards you to give you their full attention.

 

  1. Mirroring.

Subtle mirroring indicates attraction. If they cross their arms when you do, or uncross their legs when you do then it is very likely that there is attraction there.

People who like one another are likely to mirror each other’s body positions. It can help establish rapport and sends a subconscious signal that you’re interested.

 

  1. No barriers between you.

If they are interested in you they are likely to remove any barriers or obstacles between you. If they’re sitting opposite you they might move to sit next to you or if there is something big on the table they might move it out of the way so they can see you better.

They might move cups and things out of the way so that there is a clear path between you, or also as mentioned previously, they may uncross their arms or legs as this can be seen as a barrier, so removal of this leaves them more open towards you.

 

  1. They ask you lots of questions.

If someone is asking you a lot of questions about yourself and seems genuinely interested – then they probably are!

If you like someone you want to make time to find out more information about them so if someone is making an effort to learn about you then they are likely to have a vested interest in you.

We all love a semi; some facts about Croatia!

With the England v Croatia semi-final game looming, we thought you might find some facts about Croatia useful!

Impress your partner by saying “I love you” in Croatian – “Volim te”. (Probably not the best idea if you’re on a first date though!).

Put a spark into the conversation by telling them Nikola Tesla was born in Croatia.

Dubrovnik was known as the “Adriatic Pearl” in the early 19th century and was a filming location for “Game of Thrones” King’s Landing and Star Wars – certainly somewhere to visit if you holiday together!

Croatians had their own alphabet from the 12th to the 20th century. The Glagolitic alphabet was preserved only by Croats. Why not write a secret note for them to decode? The pen was also invented in Croatia, originally a mechanical pencil called the “Penkala”.

If you’re thinking of buying your date some flowers, know that the national flower of Croatia is the Iris.

If your date is a fan of musicals, they’ll be impressed to know that the island of Vis is used to portray Greece in the film ‘Mamma Mia 2’.

For a romantic getaway why not take your partner to Dalmatia? Shakespeare’s comedy Twelfth Night was set there.

If you’re one for dressing smartly for your date, you can enlighten your date on the fact that the necktie was invented in Croatia.

Not got a date yet? Then why not get on You’ve Pulled and meet someone today!
