When you’re getting to know a new partner, it’s natural to want to go all-in right away. But that isn’t how you keep your prospective sweetheart interested, especially if you don’t have any idea what “all-in” means. Below are a few clever ways to leave him wanting more long enough for you to learn more things.
Answer his questions without too much detail. Bat your eyes like you have more to say, even though you do not. Then, when he orders you another drink, quickly Google “different kisses besides regular.”
Spontaneity is an easy way to keep your partner wondering what your deal is, but in a good way. Surprise him by going to the bathroom and not coming back. Find the nearest library and acquire literature on “where can you do hickeys” and “which way is doggy style.”
Don’t text back immediately.
Give your guy the chance to miss you by leaving him on read every once in a while. Use that time to memorize the scientific names for the anatomy of the human penis. He’ll be so excited when he finally sees your name pop up on his phone with the correct usage of “corpus spongiosum.”
Make your time together fun.
Coffee is fine for the first few dates. But activities like mini-golf or axe-throwing can be fun alternatives to distract him while you figure out how boobs factor into it all.
Cook him something delicious.
The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. Feed him so much he falls asleep. Watch YouTube videos on cool tongue moves until he wakes up.
Stop after the kiss.
There’s nothing wrong with having sex on the first date. But if you’re looking for something long-term, try giving your beau a long (deep?) kiss and then don’t invite him upstairs. It will be easier to ask Alexa to explain all the different bases if he’s not standing next to you in your apartment.
Take control in bed.
If you do decide to go for it, you’ll score big points by confidently taking charge. Whisper into his ear “Don’t move,” and seductively crab-walk out of the bedroom. You now have approximately five uninterrupted minutes to call your neighbor Julia and ask her how much lube is too much lube.
If all else fails, simply laugh at everything he says. You’ll be surprised how little you actually have to contribute.
