Tinder Dating: Getting Your Shit Together

date-online-profileDude.  Get your shit together…. Your dating life depends on it.
Whether you do or not, any guy can fall victim to just winging dates and hoping for the best.  I have learned this lesson the hard way.  It seems like every time I would go out with friends and my place was immaculate, I wind up coming home alone. As soon as my place looks like a bum ransacked the place, that’s when the gods see fit to send me a hot girl that wants to come back to my place.Yet another advantage to Tinder gaming…. you have more time to prepare and automate the whole process.
A big part of dating success comes down to logistics, when you’re meeting a tinder girl out for a drink, you should have a plan.  That plan should have everything laid out starting with where to meet and ending with how to get back to your place. Always have something cool or something desired back at your place, besides the implication of sex.

Here are 7 Quick and Simple Musts to set up before your hot Tinder Date:
#1:  Have Alcohol

Easy Rule.  Always have alcohol at your place ready. Have beer, white, and red wine, and vodka with something to mix with. This should be on your shopping list up there with milk and bread.

#2:   Clean your place before you go out

No respectable girl wants to get down in an untidy place. It just ruins the mood.

#3:  The Right Lighting

The right lighting sets the mood.  Make your place lit, not too much but when you open the door it should not be completely dark. I leave kitchen oven light on because I walk in through kitchen. Get lamps with low lighting, nothing ruins the mood more than turning on your lights and your place lights up like a 7-11

#4:  Music

Have some music ready.  Get some cool vibing music on. There’s no reason for it to be silent. I use Spotify and just use their mood playlist, according to what that particular girl may like more.  It’s free and works just fine.

#5:  Frozen Pizza

This is a great way to get a girl back to your place, if you’re with a girl near your house, you can always ask if she wants pizza and if she does – make your way home. When you get there, if she asks, tell her you have pizza and drinks and make HER promise not to make any moves on you.

#6:  Keep Overnight Supplies

Go to your nearest grocery store or pharmacy, they have travel toothbrushes, get a couple.  Get some contact solution. This may be the deciding factor for a girl to stay or not.  Even if you don’t want her to stay over, it’s good to have.

#7:  Have condoms near your bed

Does tinder work? You are about to found out.. If you don’t have condoms, a lot of girls will not have sex (you shouldn’t neither but that’s another story). Condoms should be within an arms length from bed, preferably a night stand. I used to keep them in a pillow, and one girl got turned off because she thought I was some kind of man whore. The idea is not to have to get up and ruin the mood.Doing these simple things, can make or break the deal.
A few more things to mention are roommates and cell phones.  If you have roommates, make sure they aren’t in common area, text them before you get home: “Dude, coming home w girl – go to your room” .  Nothing spoils the mood more than a dude in his underwear slopped on the couch next to a bong.
Your cell phone should not have your notifications on home screen.  Make sure your screen is locked and has a code.  Some girls think grabbing your phone and looking through it is flirting…
