I like to stay fit and run at least 5 days per week.Please excuse the photos, I look much better when I have made an effort (hate my webcam,haha).
Avid readers of black dating advice columns will probably be so sick of “First Black Date Dos and Don’ts”. Things such as what to do, where to go, proper etiquette, and so on.
|But what about after the date? Is there proper “behaviour” as well? These are just some frequently asked questions by “regulars” of the black dating scene.
Actually, there are indeed some “post-first date don’ts”. You know, things one should avoid once the date is over. For simplicity, we have decided to divide these into “for the gents” and “for the ladies”.
As always, ladies first:
- Don’t be too easy. So okay, you like the bloke. Hold on a minute. Men like a little mystery. Give him just that. If he starts “getting intimate”, slow him down. Not because you don’t like him. But because you want to keep him. You must of course, make this clear—that you don’t want to rush.
- Don’t offer to foot the bill: Let him feel he’s in control. Men like it when they are “in charge”
- Don’t stop him when he offers to call you a taxi: So you like taking the train. If he insists on calling you a cab however, let him. This makes him feel more secure about simply letting you off on your own.
- Don’t announce your “success” just yet: It sure is tempting to let all your friends know how wonderful your black date went, right? Don’t do so just yet. Wait and see how things will turn out.
- Don’t fret if he doesn’t call at once. So he said he’d call. But hasn’t just yet. Give him time. He may be quite hesitant and shy as well. Give him the benefit of the doubt.
And for the blokes:
- If you don’t like her, don’t sugar coat it. Don’t go and tell her stuff like “you’re nice”. This is simply another way of telling her she’s not your type. And women know this all too well.
- Don’t tell her that she reminds you of dear old Mum. Nothing is worse for a woman. It’s got “pressure” written all over it.
- Don’t give her “the tongue”. You may want to give her a goodnight kiss. But make it a simple kiss. No funny stuff. Be a gentleman, ok chap!
- Never ever say “I’ll call you tomorrow” if you don’t intend to do so. In fact, don’t tell her when you’re going to call. Don’t even ask for her number if you have no intentions of getting to know her better—which includes calling her up. This won’t win you any “brownie points” my friend.
So there you have it, ladies and gentlemen. Some things you may wish to keep in mind after the first date. These could spell the difference between a second date and having nothing at all. Happy black dating!
I’m a fun loving and down to earth lady. I have an edgy sense of humour and need someone who can make me laugh. I’m known to be very cheeky, so someone who can handle/match that is attractive. I can be very serious when necessary and can be very strong willed.
I love to bake and luckily for me my love of baked treats doesn’t reflect on my hips too much – slim with curves…
I do have relatively high standards but definitely not high maintenance. I just like quality in all aspects of my life.

Whether you have been using black dating sites for a while, or you’re brand new to the black dating scene, it’s important that you choose the right photo to accompany your black dating profile. It’s a fact that there’s an element of physical attraction in dating – in traditional dating where you might meet someone in a club or the supermarket it’s the physical attraction that comes first – and there’s no reason why it shouldn’t be the same when it comes to black dating online.
Writing a great black dating profile is important, but unless you’re a Booker Prize author, you’re unlikely to be able to give a better description of yourself than a photograph can. That’s why you need to add a photograph to ensure that the people viewing your profile have as much information as possible. Studies show that you are eight times more likely to get a response to your profile if you have attached a photo, and your chances increase with the quality of your photo.
You can tell a lot about a person from the type of photo they include in their black dating profile. If you include a photo of yourself doing something adventurous, like bungee jumping, you are clearly saying something about your personality – similarly if you include a professional studio shot you run the risk of people thinking you are a bit of a narcissist. Go for the safer option – a nice, clear, genuine photo.
It’s important that your picture shows you as you are now. Imagine being in contact with someone whose photograph looked great, only to find out when you meet them that at it’s at least 15 years old! It’s far more important that your photo accurately represents the person you are now.
In the digital age with most phones having great cameras there’s really no excuse for a dodgy shot. Get a friend to help you take a good photograph, remembering that the background is nearly as important as you are. Take a range of natural, smiling shots and then choose the one that you like best. You can upload it directly to your computer and add it to your profile. What’s more, you can change it – if you have your hair cut, or get contact lenses instead of glasses, for example.
Your black dating profile and your photograph are your key marketing tools as far as black dating is concerned. Take the time to get them right and watch those replies flood in!
