If you want to stay in control of the date and keep him interested then take it easy and don’t overindulge.If your date becomes your boyfriend then there will be plenty of opportunities for both of you to let your hair down.However, if he isn’t calling or answering at all, then you might need to consider it’s a sign he’s not into you.Do your own thing – Never make us the centre of your world.
Cece even tells Jess as she's first considering dating Russell (the one and only Fancypants) that "he intimidates you because you wouldn't have to take care of him, he'd take care of you."DON' T make your man feel older than he actually is (or date yourself).But, seriously, if they ever do a reunion tour J is SO coming with me. Do you have any tips for dating someone older than you? DO treat the relationship the same as you would with a guy your own age. But a guy will most likely be a little scared if you knock back a few shots before dinner.Think carefully about inviting us back after a first date – Yes, we might well ask you but that doesn’t necessarily mean we want you to say yes.Are you dating an older fellow or thinking about dipping your toes into that more mature water? Or, in Jess's (Zooey Deschanel's character, for those of you who aren't fans yet) case, don't ask about his health: "How's your prostate? Our bodies are decaying."DO relish in the fact that guys get better looking with age, but you'll always be the hot, younger girlfriend.Well, my dears, you've come to the right place. DON' T complain about turning "halfway to 50" when he's "one year til 30".I older men are just looking for a good time or notch on their belt. Whether that's a mature twenty-something, an immature thirty-something, or a quirky lady living with three dudes like Jess.Or a 24-year-old girl from New Jersey who happens to blog about her relationship. DON' T use childhood/pop culture references that he will never get.Forget Facebook – If you want to let your friends know how much you loved that latte on the way to work this morning, or share a photo of the most adorable kitten playing a guitar that’s well and good.But do you really want a guy you just met to see all those old photos you’ve been tagged in?
