How To Have A Successful NSA Date

Being in a NSA date or relationship can be a lot of fun for both partners, provided that you share the same outlook and expectations. On the dating scene, casual hook ups are commonplace, and they provide a variety of benefits that are not solely sexual.

Hooking up for completely casual sex is no longer considered taboo. Open-minded men and women can enjoy the sexual liberation that comes with not bedding the same person twice. On ManChat – the UK’s busiest gay phone service – you’ll easily connect with hot and horny guys looking for a good time, nationwide.

As a single adult, you’re free to pick and choose whom you date without having to deal with regret in the morning. If you’re in a relationship that isn’t satisfying your high libido, NSA dates with sexy strangers can deliver the thrills that you’re seeking.

What’s Your Arrangement?

If you’ve got a crush on a friend and secretly desire to get up close and intimate with them, you need to pay attention to the unwritten NSA dating rules… Having casual sex with someone you already know is defined as a ‘friends with benefits’ hook up.

Your fuck buddy doesn’t have to listen to your jokes, anecdotes and problems when you’re getting together for physical pleasure and sexual gratification. They may however, develop an intimacy attachment, if you’re hooking up on a regular basis.

NSA arrangements work best when you’re dating new people that you’ve instantly clicked with on a gay phone chat line service or a hook up app.

When your goal is to achieve a successful NSA date, there’s absolutely no need to be emotionally invested. You can let go of the usual dating concerns, and simply relax and enjoy the moment. You also don’t have to think about whether or not you’ve made a lasting first impression, or what your chances are of date No.2.

Are You Ready?

While it’s exciting to meet new people, and to explore your sexuality and fantasies without fear of rejection or ridicule, it’s crucial that you’re honest with yourself before embarking on NSA dating.

Are you ready to let go of relationship expectations? Can you forget about past connections and live in the moment? How much do you desire the exploration of your wild and kinky side?

It’s essential that you’re honest with the person you’re meeting for casual sex. Let them know that you’re only interested in adult fun that lasts one night. It’s also common sense to use protection, especially if you’re indulging in on-the-go quickie sex with a multitude of strangers.

Follow The NSA Dating Rules

Flirting with a hot guy on ManChat is fun, and it can greatly boost your self-confidence. To maximise your chances of a successful NSA date, it’s best to avoid sharing information that is too personal. Focus instead on flirty banter, and chat about general topics, before arranging a date.

On date night, relax and chill. NSA dates don’t have to include dinner and drinks, or other activities that are usually associated with traditional dating. It’s perfectly acceptable to be direct and plan to meet up just for sex, if that’s what you both want to do.

There’s nothing selfish about focusing on your body and pleasure. A NSA date offers an opportunity to try out things that you may have been afraid to do in a committed relationship. Be open-minded and let your playmate know what you like, and what you want to experience.

When you’re done having sex, avoid any pillow talk. If you’ve hooked up at your place, give your date an hour tops before politely asking them to leave. The same timeframe applies if the encounter happens at theirs, and you’re the one doing the departing.

Don’t expect a text from your one-night stand lover the next day. When you play by the successful NSA dating rules, there’s no time to waste on a connection that is purely pleasure based. It’s much more fun focusing on exploring fresh dating opportunities.

Seasonally Single

While the spirit of Christmas is traditionally associated with togetherness, if you’re someone who is seasonally single, it doesn’t mean that you have to miss out on all the fun.

On ManChat, the UK’s busiest gay chat line service, it’s a virtual Christmas party 24/7! There’s no need to spend Christmas alone when you can easily connect with gay, bi, and straight real men all over the UK.

The Perfect Christmas

Most people spend the lead up to Xmas Day deep in preparation and shopping. If family and relatives are involved, there’s likely to be a considerable amount of compromise also going on. If you’re a single (or married) guy who longs for a different kind of Christmas, make plans to ensure that 2022 is your best year ever!

Being seasonally single means that you have the freedom to do Christmas exactly how you want. You can kickback and relax and do the things that you love, without the pressure of following age-old traditions that fill you with little joy. Spending Christmas Day on your own is the perfect antidote to a busy and stressful lifestyle, or to conforming to someone else’s idea of what a great Xmas is.

On ManChat, you’ll find thousands of guys who are up for Christmas chatting, flirting and more. If your idea of the perfect Christmas involves no stress, no hassle and plenty of fun, all you have to do is login and connect with whoever takes your fancy.

The NSA Xmas

Whether you love the thrill of chatting to new people, or you’re hooked on the sexual stimulation that flirting with sexy strangers can give you, on ManChat your Christmas wish can certainly come true.

It’s easy to get into the Christmas spirit by sending an icebreaker message to a variety of men who are open to chatting and texting during the festive season. You can send flirty Xmas wishes and ask them if they’ve been good or naughty, or give and receive Santa’s sexting surprises by uploading and downloading photos on your phone.

If you ‘click’ with a hot guy, be cool and take your time getting to know him in the lead up to Christmas Eve. If you’re both free and available, you could arrange a NSA hook up on Christmas Day.

Prefer to take your time before planning a date, you can make plans for a New Year’s Eve rendezvous, or save the erotic adventure for 2023. Having to wait to enjoy the promise of a lustful sexual encounter will intensify the excitement for both of you.

Happy New Year!

The season of goodwill is the perfect time to hit pause and reflect on yourself and your life. The other side of Christmas Day is typically when most people make unrealistic resolutions that they hope will improve their enjoyment of life.

If you’re seasonally single, take advantage of the freedom that you have to think solely about yourself. Consider how satisfied you are with your life, and what you would like to alter or enhance. Instead of following the traditional trend of giving up something, commit to new things that enrich your life experience.

If you want to find love, or to have unlimited NSA encounters in 2023, start the New Year by making new connections with real guys who want the same thing as you. Being open and upfront about your wants is essential, if you desire a positive transformation of your circumstances in the New Year.

How To Make Any Man Want You

Whether you’re looking to practice your flirting technique, to enjoy NSA fun on a casual hook up, or to find Mr Right, you can definitely increase your success rate by chatting to hot guys on ManChat. The UK’s busiest gay phone service instantly connects you with thousands of potential dating candidates. Meet hot men and make them want you!

As the safe and discreet chat line service offers an easy and convenient way to chat, flirt and text gay, bi, and straight men all over the UK, you’re likely to have some competition in attracting the attention of your crush. To stand out from the crowd, on the popular social networking platform, it’s highly recommended that you put in a little work…

Show Off Your Confidence

Before you can make any man want you, you first need to get him to notice you!

By practicing self-love, you’ll boost your self-esteem, self-respect and self-confidence, and become an attractive option for someone who is looking for their perfect match.

To make confidence building easier, it’s important that you let go of emotional baggage and any personal issues relating to your past. You can use self-help resources, consult a professional, or confide in a trusted friend, to work through emotional blocks and repetitive patterns of behaviour. Letting go of negative emotions will uplift your mood and make your personality more magnetic.

  • Online

Present yourself online in an appealing way, by creating a dating profile that is authentic and genuine. Don’t pretend to be someone that you’re not. To catch every guy’s eye, add your most flattering photo and engaging text.

  • In Person

On a date, don’t be shy about strutting your stuff with confidence. Dress to impress, and allow your natural charm to ooze and captivate.

Be Friendly & Flirty

To make a man want you, you need to pique his curiosity while also getting his adrenaline pumping. The best way to do this is by practicing your flirting.

When you playfully flirt with someone you fancy, you’re letting them know that you’re interested. Flirting allows you to push the boundaries while still keeping the connection in the fun zone.

Do resist the temptation to take flirting to the next level too soon though. Pace yourself by flirting and pulling back, so that you get your POI to chase you. Laying out all of your best flirtatious moves in one fell swoop is unlikely to make the guy you’re keen on want you for keeps.

Be friendly and open, and take an active interest in his life. Ask him questions about his likes/dislikes, and get him talking about stuff he loves. The more relaxed he feels chatting with you, the better your chances of getting what you want – whether it’s a hot date or a NSA hook up.

Complimenting a guy you like will make him feel special, provided that you don’t go overboard when stroking his ego. Pay genuine compliments that focus on more than his looks.

Share Some Secrets

After you have exchanged a few messages, you’ll both want to get into a deeper conversation. It’s important to understand that not everyone is instantly comfortable sharing private information and secret stuff. To encourage your crush to open up, it’s helpful to take the lead in sharing.

You don’t have to share your entire life story, or anything that’s reserved for the ears of your best friend. Start by telling him an anecdote about something that recently happened to you. If you have established a rapport, it won’t be long before your crush follows your lead and tells you things about his life. You’ll then be able to naturally develop a connection that is beyond physical attraction.

Tweak Your Body Language

When you’re out on a date, it’s worth making a few tweaks and adjustments to your body language. Knowing how to use the best moves to your advantage enhances your self-confidence, and boosts your chances of a second date.

Use body language to signal your feelings. Subtle gestures – such as eye contact, flirty touches and mirroring mannerisms – can be highly effective in conveying your interest, without you uttering a single word. It’s best to avoid crossing your arms, if you don’t want him to think that you’re on the defensive.

If you want a guy to know that you think he’s damn hot, hold eye contact for a second or two beyond the point that feels comfortable. A guy who is switched on will pick up the signals and respond by copying your body language.

Maintain An Air Of Mystery

It’s a fact that men love the chase. To hook him and reel him in, it’s crucial that you maintain an air of mystery.

  • Lure the hot guy of your dreams by flaunting your confident personality and sex appeal to grab his attention.
  • Pique his interest with sparkling conversation, cheeky banter and your natural charm and wit.
  • Get him interested by flirting and playing hard to get. Holding back a little and keeping him guessing will make him even more curious about you.
  • Keep him on his toes by being unpredictable, in a good way.

When you successfully put all these steps into practice, your POI will crave your company, and will want no one but you.

Social Distancing Date Ideas For Autumn

Two men sitting in a restaurant eating and laughingWhilst social distancing is still in place, how are you supposed to go on dates? Especially now autumn is here and the weather is colder, you can’t just go and sit in the park – well you can, but it might be a bit wet and cold! So what can you do?

We’ve listed some autumn friendly date ideas for you with social distancing in mind.

Book a table in a restaurant or pub

You’ll need to check local (and national) restrictions, but at the time of writing this most places are still open for you to go and have food, so if you’d like a traditional date, book somewhere nice for you to go and have a nice meal and get to know each other.

Go to a zoo or nature park

These are classic date ideas and for the most part are still possible. They’re great places to visit for plenty to see and talk about, in case you get stuck for conversation. It’s also great if you’re not keen on going somewhere indoors.

Go for a walk

Weather permitting you can still go for a walk in your local park, along the seafront or in the countryside. Just make sure you dress for the weather so you don’t get cold or ruin those new shoes!

Visit a museum or art gallery

If these are within both your interests they’re a great idea for an indoor date if you’re both comfortable with that. There’s plenty to talk about and you can bond over similar passions and interests.

Video call

Of course the safest option is still a video call date. If you’re not comfortable enough to meet yet, or if local restrictions are preventing it, then you can still have a date through the phone. Get a glass of wine and chat in the comfort of your own home.

So whether you’d rather an inside date or an outside date, we’ve got a few suggestions to try.

Dating Whilst Social Distancing

Dating has had to take a back seat for a lot of people in the current situation but it doesn’t need to stop entirely.

There are a number of ways you can still “go” dating and spend time getting to know someone, or maintaining the connection you already have.

We’ve listed a few of our favourites below for you to try!

Have a video call date

Whether you’ve never met, or you’ve been together a while, this is a great way to connect and have a decent chat. You can see each other so it’s easier to see emotions and hear tone of voice so you will see each other’s personalities. There are many different apps that offer video calling and some even have built in games that you can play!

Cook something together

You can also use video calling to do things together like cook a meal. You can both agree on what it’s going to be beforehand to give you a chance to prepare, then you can chat and cook and even eat together.

If you don’t like cooking, you could order a takeaway and eat it together on video chat, or if you’re a little adventurous (and trusting!) you could order a takeaway for each other.

Watch a movie together

If there’s something you both want to see, be it a movie or a TV series, watch it together! You can message throughout or have a conversation about it at the end to pick apart what you’ve just watched. It means you immediately have someone to talk to about something exciting happening!

Go for a walk together

Now we’re allowed to meet outside at a 2m distance, you could meet up and go for a walk round your local park or a long the seafront if you’re on the coast. It will give you chance to either get to know each other, or see each other if you’ve not been together for a long time.

Have a sexy phone call

If you’re isolated away from your partner it can be very lonely and you’ll be missing the intimate moments. It’s the perfect time to experiment with some phone sex! You can either explore fantasies or relive exciting times that you remember.

If you’re currently single and want to start dating, there are loads of guys from all over the UK chatting on Man Chat so join today!

Do You Need Some Autumn Date Ideas?

Two men looking at each other and holding a cut out heart shape

When the temperature drops in autumn it can be difficult to think of things to do on a date. We’ve listed a few below to give you some ideas.

Keep yourselves warm by going on a bike ride.
There are loads of cycle trails, find one near you and maybe even stop off for a drink along the way. The cycling is fun and will keep you warm.

If walking is more your thing, go to a local park.
The colours in autumn are beautiful, head to a park for a walk and/or a picnic and catch all the great scenery as the leaves change.

Go to a nice local pub.
If you’re feeling a little bit chilly after your walk in the park, find a nice local pub with a log fire and snuggle up beside it to warm yourselves back up.

Stay home and cook dinner.
You can either cook a meal for your partner, or you could cook or bake something together.
If you want something a bit more adventurous you could take a cooking class together and learn something new.

Find an independent local coffee shop.
There are always new coffee shops and cafés popping up so find one you’ve not tried yet. If you’re feeling brave why not try something new or even order for each other?!

Snuggle up and watch a movie.
You might not feel like going outside much as the weather gets colder. Stay inside, cuddle up with some blankets and watch your favourite movies.

Read your favourite books together.
If you both enjoy reading, you can cuddle up together and read your favourite book or that new book you keep meaning to read.
You could even recommend your favourite books and read each other’s together, stopping at interesting points to have a discussion about it.

6 Ways To Tell If Your Date Likes You

Not sure if someone is interested in you? Want to know the signs to look for to gauge if you might get a second date? If you notice these signals, they may well be into you!

1. They ask you lots of questions.

If he’s asking you a lot of questions about yourself and seems genuinely interested – then it’s very likely that he actually is!
If you like someone, you’ll want to make time to find out more about them, so if they’re making an effort to learn about you then it’s likely they have a vested interest in you.

2. Mutual eye contact.

Whilst asking you lots of questions, your date might be maintaining eye contact with you. If he’s interested in you he’s much more likely to try and catch your eye and will maintain eye contact whilst talking to you.
Maintaining eye contact elevates your oxytocin levels and increases mutual attraction so it’s worth giving it a go if you’re interested in them. Just make sure that your eye contact doesn’t end up verging on staring as that’s rude and might scare your date!

3. Inward leaning.

The way a person is sitting is an important gauge as to whether they like you. People tend to lean towards people they like. For example uncrossing their arms/legs or leaning over a table or if you’re sitting next to each other, they’d be likely turned towards you to give you their full attention. This may also make you subconsciously lean towards them too, if you’re interested, that is!

4. No barriers between you.

If someone is interested in you, they’re likely to remove any barriers or obstacles that are between you. If they’re sitting opposite you they might move to sit next to you and  move things out of the way so they can see you better. Also as mentioned previously, they may uncross their arms or legs as this can be seen as a barrier, so removal of this leaves them more open towards you. Make sure if you are interested in them to make yourself more open and uncross your arms to remove the barrier.

5. Finding excuses to touch you.

When someone likes you they’ll quite often go out of their way to find excuses to touch you. This might be lightly touching your arm as they talk to you or finding an excuse to hold your hand.
Another way they could touch you is by “preening”- picking fluff off your clothing or straightening your clothes could be an indication that they’re interested in you.

6. Mirroring.

Subtle mirroring indicates attraction. If they cross their arms when you do, or uncross their legs when you do then it is very likely that there is attraction there.
People who like one another are likely to mirror each other’s body positions. It can help establish rapport and sends a subconscious signal that you’re interested.

Give A Good First Impression On Your First Date


Everyone wants to make a good impression on a first date. Read our tips and secure that second date no problem!


Be on time.

It’s always rude to be late but being late on a first date is definitely not going to win you any brownie points. Fair enough if you have a valid reason but make sure you let them know and tell them why and if you can, roughly when you think you’ll arrive. Definitely don’t cancel on your date unless you absolutely have to, otherwise they will be unlikely to give you a second chance.


Dress appropriately.

If you’re going to a nice restaurant, don’t turn up in shorts and flip flops! Equally if you’re just going to a café for a coffee, there’s no need to wear a suit!
You don’t need to spend hours choosing an outfit but your date will appreciate you making a bit of effort and shows that you’re serious about your date.

Make eye contact.

You’re much more likely to connect with the other person if you make eye contact. They’ll know you’re listening and are interested in what they’re saying, rather than looking around the room and not paying attention. It will also help you to know if they’re making eye contact with you as well, as then you’ll know they’re engaged in the conversation and interested in you.


Ask questions.

You need to let your date know that you’re interested in them and the best way to show that is to ask questions about them. Only ask things that are relevant and that you genuinely want to know. There’s no point getting into a deep conversation about something you know nothing about. Keep the conversation light hearted and get to know each other.
Also make sure you listen to their answers and don’t keep talking about yourself!


Don’t have your phone out.

You’re probably only going to be with your date for a couple of hours for your initial meeting, to suss whether you’re interested on taking it further. There is no need to keep checking your phone – your date wants your full attention. Put your phone in your bag/pocket and only look at it when you absolutely need to.


Be mindful of your manners.

Not only do you need to be aware of your manners with your date, you need to make sure you’re polite to everyone around you. Your date will be watching how you handle yourself and if you’re rude to waiting staff, they won’t be impressed. Treat people how you want to be treated and you’ll get more respect.


 Pay them compliments.

If you’re interested in your date and would like to see them again, compliment them. Tell them you like something they’re wearing, or that they have lovely eyes. Something that simple will let them know you like them and if they like you back they’ll return the favour!

Ten Topics To Avoid On A First Date

You want to secure a second date so make sure you avoid talking about these topics.

  1. Politics.

You don’t need to know what their persuasion is on a first date. This could affect how much you like them/how well the date goes and there’s no need to talk about it. Keep conversation light hearted and get to know each other.


  1. Previous partners.

Do you really want to know what their last partner was like? You’ll probably just end up comparing yourself to them which is never a good thing. You also probably don’t want to know how many previous partners they’ve had or how many dates they’ve been on – it’s never what you want to hear!


  1. Money.

Never ask how much they earn or tell them how much you earn. Either way you won’t come across well. Keep it to simpler topics like hobbies or even just what they do for work.


  1. Religion.

Religion can be a very personal subject. Many people will not agree on religious subjects so it’s best not to bring this into conversation.


  1. Marriage/children.

This is definitely not a topic for a first date! You don’t want to scare them off so don’t bring up commitment until you’re both sure that’s where your relationship is heading.


  1. Work.

You can absolutely find out what each other does for a living but don’t moan about not liking your job or how much you dislike your colleague – your date isn’t interested! Also you don’t know if your date knows anyone you work with so it’s best not to moan about them!


  1. Yourself.

You will of course be talking about yourself when your date asks questions about you but don’t keep talking about yourself unprompted. Ask your date questions about themselves rather than banging on about yourself all the time.


  1. What you’re looking for.

Don’t get into a conversation about what sort of person you’re looking for, it only shows you as being high maintenance or picky (you’re allowed to be picky, just don’t let them know that!).


  1. Your own appearance.

If you put yourself down, your date won’t find this attractive. If you big yourself up they won’t find this attractive either. Let them compliment you if they want to and by all means compliment them but don’t mention your own appearance.


  1. Your family background.

By all means tell them how many siblings you have but there’s no need for any more detail than that, they’re on a date with you, not your entire family!
