Dating Tip: Your parting gift

Ok, you’ve had a fantastic date which ended with an amazing kiss.

You really want to see them and don’t want them to forget about you while you are apart.  So what can  you make sure that the other person does think about you?

The answer is simple. Just leave your mark behind.  I’m not suggesting a business  card as that’s not really appropriate and will be much to formal.  You do not want them  to remember you for your credentials or your job title.  So I would sugget something more personal.

Put your artistic and creative talents into full gear. If you are poetic, you could pen down a few lines on a small card and hand it to the person. Mind you, the lines should not be about the person as that might scare them off and be a bit over the top.  So keep to safer topics like friendship, relationships, togetherness, warmth, or meetings. But do the writing in advance and keep it for the right moment. Do not try to write a poem on a paper napkin with the person sitting in front of you!

If you can’t write poetry, maybe you could get some dried flowers and stick them onto a card and copy down the lines of somebody else, but admit that the lines are not your to the person.

Keep such a token with you and wait for the right moment. Just before you part, if you are sure that “this is the one” then hand it over to the person with a very shy expression on your face and a timid, “I made this for you…” Believe me, it’s miles better to say “I made this for you” than “I bought this for you”.

So what happens if you are not too sure that you want to see this person again? Well keep it with you itself and save it for the next person.

If the person is the right person, and if you did hand the person this personalised token, the person is sure to think of you in a much fonder way and they’ll have keepsake to look back on after you’ve been together a long time!

Good luck,
