When I was single, my cousin, Yari, gave me this piece of dating advice: be mysterious. “You can’t tell men everything, you have to keep them guessing.” Well, I don’t wanna! That was my usual response. I truly felt that being myself and showing all of me was the only way to connect with a man so he fell deeply in love with me.
I hate to admit it, but Yari was sort of right. It doesn’t mean you pretend to be someone else. It’s almost like showing your cards when you have to versus flashing them after your date inquires, “So tell me about yourself.” Don’t tell him everything. But don’t be so mysterious that he thinks you’re a spy.
So, how much of yourself do you reveal when dating someone new? Does it change when you’re in a relationship or should you hide those not-so pretty parts of your inner self? I dish on this on this week’s dating advice video. If you have questions, contact me to be featured on the next “Ask Sujeiry!”
