In the age-old search for women to go out with, it can often seem it is easier to find an unplanned hookup than finding a real-life girlfriend.
Learn to become fascinated with who she is, how she operates, what she cares about, what her dreams are. This probably could have been baked into the point above, but please don't call your girlfriend "hot." Especially in front of your friends. Do the hard work here so your relationship is standing on a firmer foundation than simply physical attraction. She'll remember that time you went on a wild adventure together far more than she'll remember the Valentine's Day rose bouquet. Treat them well, do the right things, and when it ends, hopefully you've left them in a better place for knowing you. We didn't even touch on the layups like honesty, respect, don't cheat, and have fun. Or the guy who shuts the laptop and looks her in the eye instead. Turn your car off, get your butt up to the door, and ask her parents if she's ready to be picked up. Remember that every girl you date is someone else's daughter. Definitely still do those things from time to time.At the end of the night, walk her back to her door and tell her you had a fantastic time.7. Physical looks are great, but buddy, they're fleeting. Show her she's more than the way she looks, and you know that.9. We all love talking about ourselves, and we feel most connected to the people who really listen to us. They've spent years and years with her, while you've probably only known her for a few months. You do that by doing what you say you are going to do, being home on time, and treating her like their daughter, not just your girlfriend.11. The physical intimacy will want to take off like a rocket when you really click with someone. But don't base the entirety of your relationship on it. But a gift given isn't the same as an experience shared. When this happens, the world will try to show and tell you that you should stuff those broken pieces way down deep. Technology is great—it's enabling us to learn more, do more, be more. Kids your age are communicating far more with texts, snaps and tweets than they are with real life conversations.Down where no one can see or hear about them again. But that broken heart won't get put back together by running from it. Cry the ugly tears (no matter what anyone thinks about them), ask the painful questions, and just remember that—as cheesy as it sounds—I promise you it does get better with time. Be the guy who takes a girl for a Coke and leaves his phone in the car. Perhaps it's the old-school stuff brewing again, but it won't go well if I hear you've honked from some girl's driveway as you're picking her up for a date.But, you need to look in the right places and be the right type of guy.It can really be bad for a man if no matter what they do, they can’t get a girlfriend – talk about a problem if it happens every time.In a few more short years, it will be something else entirely.As your dad, it's tough for me to imagine that in a few more short years after that, you're going to start thinking about dating. As you start dating, my hope for you is that you'll be her friend long before you're her boyfriend.Then again, even if I was interested, I might have been feeling too shy to say anything.But in any case, if I said to call me, chances are, I would really love to hear from you, but I'm not entirely sure if you want to hear from me, and if you don't, I really don't want to bother you by calling you up when you don't want to talk to me. Even if I don't say to call, consider calling anyway.
