4 Tips For Your Next Date Night
Congratulations! You like each other. Maybe it’s your first date, or the 5th or 100th. Whatever the case, it doesn’t hurt to spice up your love life once in awhile. We’ve put together some tips and tricks for your next romantic date night.
1. Make Eye Contact
Psychologists have made many surprising discoveries about the way that mutual gaze, or the lack of it, affects us physically and mentally and how we relate to each other. In an experiment to explore the effects of eye contact on participants’ feelings of romantic love, researchers found that “subjects induced to exchange mutual unbroken eye gaze for 2 min with a stranger of the opposite sex reported increased feelings of passionate love for each other.” Given these findings, making eye contact and staring deeply into someone’s eyes can help create feelings of passion and love.
So the next date you’re on, maintain that eye contact while communicating and try having a friendly “staring contest” which might just light up some romantic sparks! Word of advice though, eye contact is great and all but please remember to blink. That’s very important.
2. Touch Each Other
Different types of touches can say many different things. We touch to show attraction, to show love, and to be intimate. On dates, especially first dates sometimes touching may not feel organic but touching may just be that difference to take your relationship to the next level.
Studies have been done that show how touching can increase desire and elevate the heart rates in participants. On your date, start off with some social touching to break the ice. Something as simple as giving a hug to say hello or patting their hands, arms or shoulders when they make a comment or to get their attention goes a long way.
And if you’re both comfortable, further intimate touching is more than welcomed. Combined with your efforts at making eye contact, touching a date or lover will bring back some much-needed intimacy.
3. Communicate Concerns
How many people do you know that openly address concerns related to sex especially in the beginning of a relationship? Too often embarrassment gets in the way of opening up. One issue not talked about enough is vaginal dryness, which can affect any woman although it’s more common after menopause. Causes can range from physiological such as hormonal changes to psychological like stress. It’s a common condition and can lead to discomfort and painful sex.
The good news is that communicating with your partner can help make sex more enjoyable. Sex is meant to be fun not painful! There are many ways to alleviate discomfort such as using lubrication or over-the-counter vaginal moisturizers. Another way is to use condoms with extra moisturizing properties for a friction-less love making experience. Aoni’s Extra Smooth Ultrathin 001 with collagen infused lubrication provides maximum comfort and moisture.
Talking openly with your partner regarding any concerns will ensure that both parties are attentive to each other’s needs and that sex will be enjoyable.
4. Be Prepared
In the heat of the moment you realize that neither of you have a condom. You’re now faced with the dilemma between safety and passion. Sound familiar? It doesn’t have to be. Some may view condoms as an afterthought but we believe in being proactive! Just like how you took the time to plan out date ideas or to plan a romantic Valentine’s Day, take the time to think of safety and how to use a condom correctly. The best condoms are the ones that never make you choose between being safe and feeling good.
