Nervous about dating?
Listen to the video below for some pointers on how you can allay your fears.
I especially like my tip on firing up your sparkly eyes, and it's one I've used for many years, as you'll learn in the video.
This technique involves igniting your eyes from inside your being so that they are bright and shiny. In other words, get excited (without any expectations) by your upcoming meeting and the new things you might learn about yourself, your date and your world. Your eyes will serve as a beacon of warm light that will invite open conversation. Your positive attitude and interest in another's words will make the meeting go well and can distill any nervousness about the encounter.
“People love to talk but hate to listen.
Listening is not merely not talking,
although even that is beyond most of our powers;
it means taking a vigorous, human interest in what is being told us.
You can listen like a blank wall or like a
splendid auditorium where every sound comes back fuller and richer.”
~Alice Duer Miller
