Hang out with your friends, go for a meal with your sister, have drinks after work, and after a certain amount of time you will both start doing many of these things together.

Since we live in a fast-paced digital world where texting and tweeting has replaced the human voice in matters of the heart, we often rely too heavily on the meaning of each text message.

When it comes to love and romance, that good morning text or smiley face emoticon can make your day.

But just because we are scared of it doesn’t mean we don’t want it.

Take it easy and let him decide when he is ready to commit.

Don’t call him everyday – It may from time to time seem as though the male half of the population hasn’t fully grasped the concept of staying in touch but trust me we know how to call you when you haven’t called us.

If you call constantly to “just check in” then the chances are he’ll feel smothered within a week and will lose interest or just assume you are a bit desperate.

Never empty your glass – You might be shaking like a leaf and nothing would settle your nerves more than to knock back the glass of wine on your table, but trust me, it’s not worth it.

If you want to stay in control of the date and keep him interested then take it easy and don’t overindulge.

Do your own thing – Never make us the centre of your world.
