Biker dating is so 2018, but there is more than one twist involved in this niche. First, you get to make the rules, and break them if necessary, as you please. Second, he might be a biker, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be all poshed up. On the contrary! And last but not least, we’ve got more than a few tips on our list to make your biker dates so memorable, he won’t know what hit him! So without further ado, let’s take a look at what you can do to make your biker’s head spin and have loads of fun in the process. Hint: you’ll stop taking yourself so seriously.
#1: Start Early
Not at 14, but around lunch time. Dinner is definitely 2013, so if you want to keep up with the trends, try a brunch or lunch date, especially if you’ve met your match on one of those biker dating sites. He might be surprised by your suggestion at first, but think about it, when was the last time he went out on a first date with someone at 1 pm? Never? You’ll be his first! And not only that, but you’ll also stay safe this way because you’ll be meeting someone you don’t know in broad daylight.
#2: Show Your Quirky Side
For the love of God, don’t go to a dinner and a movie, especially not with a biker. He might not be into live theatre shows per se, but how about a comedy club? Pick something not too pretentious or overpriced that you can both enjoy, and be as quirky and adventurous as your profile said you were. A gallery opening might be more for banker dating, but an indoor market stroll after brunch could prove to be icing on the cake. In 2018, make it a priority to part with routine, branch out, and try things you’ve never tried before. This doesn’t mean jump into bed with the first guy that comes along, but it does mean going out on a date to a soccer match or beer tasting.
#3: Upkeep Is In (Again)
He might have messy hair or muddy jeans, but you must not. Girly is back in style (thank God), which means out with the oversized, baggy and boxy, and in with the sexy, sleek and pink! Don’t forget that most guys, bikers included, love to see a girl in pink, especially paired with black leather items. So, for your next biker date, black leather pants paired with a hot pink tank top and a party blazer will make his head spin no matter how ‘cool’ you decide to play it. Plus, if you plan on wrapping him around your finger, please make sure said finger is polished!
#4: Keep Your Options Open
Don’t necessarily be promiscuous, but don’t assume that after date 4 you’re exclusive either because he’s still shopping around. Single biker dating is pretty similar in this regard to any other niche in that men don’t start being exclusive until you openly ask them to, no matter what they tell you. Don’t double-book your dates, but don’t delete your profile a couple of weeks into a new relationship because you might end up feeling misled.
#5: Sober Is The New Sexy
Peer pressure and hiccups are out – sober is the new sexy. This may not help his cause to get you drunk and take advantage of you, but it will certainly come in handy when you have to decide how many stops to give to the cab driver after your date. If there’s only one stop and you’re going back to his place or he’s coming over, you’ll know you’ve made the right decision if there is no alcohol involved. And if you’re not taking a cab home, if you lose the booze you won’t fall off his bike and embarrass yourself either! So, it’s basically a win-win.
