Create a Bond Together

When you share something personal about yourself on a date, you are implicitly delivering the message, "I trust you." When your partner feels trusted, he/she naturally feels special and safer with you. This will encourage him/her to open up to you. There is nothing more intimate or attractive than being in that shared moment, together. This is how human beings form bonds. Have enough of these moments and you will find yourself in a relationship!
Wishing you all the best.
