Dating can be tricky. That's why it is good to have a handy-dandy guide that can help point you in the right direction. And who is better to help than Tina Belcher herself? She's the oldest of the Belcher kids on Bob's Burgers and is in her own class of sass. Let's see what she has to say!
Don't be afraid to make the first move.
When we first met Tina, she was quite the awkward tween and while still undoubtedly awkward, she has some serious game. She's not afraid to make the first move, and you know what? It works! Plus, the world doesn't end in fiery destruction because the guy said no. Go ahead, make that first move.
Embrace those fantasies.
Erotic friend fiction. Daydreams of butts. Yeah. Tina is the queen of fantasizing and totally owns up to it. Can you say the same? When you can embrace those fantasies, you'll feel much more comfortable about your desires when it comes to dating.
Work what you've got.
While you don't have to use a dustpan as a mirror, you certainly shouldn't beat yourself up over your looks or feel self-conscious. You've gotta work it! All throughout the show, Tina knows she's hot stuff and that confidence shines through to make her interesting and charming--even in monotone!
Don't be afraid of trying new things or awkward moments.
Too nervous to try online dating? Had an awkward first date? All part of the dating game! And, well, life in general. Trying out new things might as well be a requirement for living (plus you might even like the new thing!) and we all have awkward moments, some of us even have an entire awkward life, but we keep on livin'.
Repeat after Tina: "I'm a smart, strong, sensual woman!"
This can be applied even on bad days, not just dating. You're a smart, strong, sensual woman and be proud of it!
One boob at a time, everyday and any day.
We all should start our days one boob at a time. Don't sweat the small things when it comes to dating, because it's not as scary or daunting as it seems. It's just talking, sharing hobbies, and doing stuff. Not so bad, right?
This was meant mostly as fun, so hopefully you found this entertaining! ;)
