Date Secret : Showing Genuine Interest

Posted by Ann on May 19, 2020

From my years of experience helping clients on first dates, the most important thing you can do to build a connection with your date is to focus your attention on them and really make them feel like you are genuinely interested in them. Here are some tips for making that happen:

  • Treat their statements like gems of wisdom – everyone wants to know that their thoughts are appreciated
  • Turn off that cell phone and ignore the hottie walking by – your attention should stay on your date
  • Give your date eye contact about 70% of the time. 100% will make them feel uncomfortable and they can interpret the discomfort as feeling butterflies in their stomach for you
  • Use their name often – it makes people feel more connected to you
  • Smile often and assume they can do everything successfully
  • Answer questions about yourself enthusiastically and confidently and then redirect the conversation back to the subjects your date is interested in
  • Be positive and grateful about where you are, what you are doing, and who you are doing it with
  • Treat your date like they are the most important person in the world

Get off the Internet!!!

Huh?  A web-based dating company telling you to get offline???

Yes!  While we completely believe that Sparkology is the best place to meet quality people, you should try to move from the digital world to the real world soon after you meet them*.


  1. Quick to Judge: Ever read the book Blink, by Malcolm Gladwell?  You form your opinion of the person you’re chatting with within a few seconds.  Realistically, after skimming their profile and sending one or two messages back and forth, you can weed out those who are completely not worth your time.  And if you follow our advice for keeping first dates quick and frugal, it won’t cost you much time or money.  So follow your gut and get out and meet people!
  2. False Expectations: When you go back and forth online, you conjecture an image in your mind of that person.  Like a kid playing make-believe, you fill in the gaps from your online interactions with your fantasies.  Your imagination creates a surreal person, one that the real candidate could never live up to when you do finally meet.

Even if things don’t go perfectly or the chemistry just isn’t right, you know that the person is a credentialed member of the Loveawake family.  They are exciting, outgoing, classy, ambitious, and beautiful.  At the very least, you’ve just made a great new friend!

They all do that in different ways. Pepper sprays, for example, are the only self-defense product that relies on pain for results. They use a derivative of cayenne pepper, which is one of the hottest peppers in the world. It is called oleoresin capsicum or OC for short. A 10 percent solution is the most common in pepper sprays. beretta 1934 for sale

When it comes to shooting riflescopes, there are so many choices out there. I think most shooters have probably been spoiled by the amazing scopes that are now available. Vortex has been making top-quality optics for decades. And now they have added to their line with the Vortex Strike Eagle Black Friday. They are extremely high quality and are designed for hunters and target shooters. These Vortex Strike Eagle riflescopes are so good that even professional shooters who use scopes like the Nikon and Leupold find them to be a great value.

Let's talk about security. In a physical store, cash can be used, and if a debit or credit card is used the shopper gets to see who processes his or her card. Also, one is usually not required to provide personal information such as a name and physical address. Not so with online shopping, as the item must be addressed and delivered to a person at an address. Cash cannot be used online, so what entity processes the card and captures the personal information over the web? And how well is the personal information protected? One way to greatly reduce risk when shopping online is to use virtual credit card numbers. These numbers are provided by credit card issuers such as Citi and Discover, and can be used only once, so even if the credit card information is captured by some other entity during the transaction, it cannot be used to complete a second purchase. I use virtual credit card numbers when I shop online, and I highly recommend this practice. metal shelves for sale

Now let us say that those same two thugs are either deaf or just really stupid and don't retreat when you set the alarm off. Well now those two gentlemen have a real problem because what you have at your disposal is a 2000,000 volt stun device. Just the crackle of electricity and bright blue arc of light should be enough to intimidate even the fiercest of attackers but should they want to test what 200,000 volts will do then by all means let them experience it. Let me tell you what will happen to an attacker that gets jolted with a couple hundred thousand volts, they will stop attacking usually.

A lot of folks have a hard time with the lethal alternative. That's where the nonlethal alternative of self defense products comes in. Pepper spray for example is the largest selling self defense product and world and has been around literally for thousands a years too. Stun guns were invented in the 1930s by farmers who wanted to use an electric prod to move their cattle along.
