Dating Standards That Are Never Too High

That he leaves room for you to speak

If you are a good listener, or even just know how to handle conversation in a mature manner, then when someone else speaks, you don’t speak over them and take over the conversation. If you’re unlucky enough to go out with someone who doesn’t follow the standard rules of polite conversation, you may find yourself doing a whole lot of listening. The entire night might be about listening to this guy. You can ask him a question, he can answer, and then never ask you anything about yourself. There is no back and forth. Don’t blame yourself for not being assertive enough. It’s not your job to force your way into the conversation or to interrupt your date. Your date should want to get to know you, which can only happen when he lets you speak.
