Lads, what have you learned in your years through experiences about dating (and before-dating/flirting), making women to like you, how to approach her, how to act, anything in this direction?
For example: I have learned If you somehow show to a girl you like her, and then completely disappear for week or two, she became interested in you...
Now, it's your turn :)

I was a "shy guy" until I was 20 and didn't date until that point, but even in just the last 6 years of experience I've learned a lot and will hopefully continue to learn in the future. Here are some of the finer points I've encountered (some were learned the hard way):
**Take one day at a time -- Rome wasn't built in one day, and neither are successful dating relationships. I found out to let things proceed on their own course instead of trying to rush everything at the start. Get to know one another, and let things happen naturally.
**Do not get physically involved too quickly -- This follows up on my first point, and was a mistake that I had made in my first serious dating situation. I went farther than I should have with someone because I thought that the girl wanted to build something long-term. I read way too far into things at the time and thought that the girl involved wanted a relationship, when in reality she just wanted some action (though she never outright said that, her actions spoke for her there). There are times when the faster things heat up, the faster they fizzle out.
**Don't blindly take people at their word no matter what -- This was another one I had to learn the hard way...in that even though I didn't lie, cheat on or intentionally mislead the people I dated, there are other people out there who don't have quite the same standards. Basically, it comes down to keeping your eyes and ears open and using some common sense. If you think someone is deceiving you, don't wait to call them out on it.1
