How to Date a Boho Babe: The Top 6 Tips on Dating the Goddess of Your Dreams from Danielle Dowling.

60c6K1KLh6ZkKvK6qw3b3x4j-OqUqdtTzS8kLE0bLJMYou’ve been nursing a crush for quite some time. She’s sweet and funny, in touch with the earth, passionate about all sorts of things (like the environment and really good iced chai lattes), and totally comfortable in her own skin.

Maybe you spied her across a crowded reiki class or you stood next to her at the farmers’ market. Whatever the case may be, you want to date a boho babe.

There are a few things you need to know before you dive headlong into the world of couple’s yoga and shared juicers. Here are six tips to help you date the boho babe of your dreams.

1. Show her that you’re on the same page health-wise

Don’t push the snooze button when it’s time for sun salutations or turn up your nose at her carrot-apple-ginger juice (which, btw, is delicious). Check out early morning yoga at the beach with her and then take her out for some green tea and an acai bowl.

Impress her with your skills in the kitchen by whipping up something healthy and yummy or suggest a new hiking trail that’s got a great view of the city.

2. Let her know when she’s on your mind
We all love honesty and transparency, right? If you’re thinking of her – tell her. See an amazing sunset and wish she was there with you? Take a photo and send it to her. Sitting in traffic? Call her and ask about her day. Going to Hawaii for a week of surfing? Send her one of those coconut postcards and bring back a grass skirt.

3. Surprise her
Tell her to set aside a weekend and arrange a camping trip. Buy her tickets to that concert she has been wanting to see or buy a few sessions with a tarot card reader. Of course, she’d also probably enjoy some Lorna Jane, Lululemon or Beyond Yoga yoga wear or mala beads in her favorite color!

4. Be open to talking about spirituality

If you’re not particularly in touch with your own spirituality it can feel a bit weird when someone starts referencing their chakras or ‘giving it over to the universe.’ Your boho babe is bound to be a spiritual warrior who lives an inspired life. While that doesn’t mean you need to convert to Buddhism tomorrow, it does mean you should be able to talk to her about what keeps her spiritually grounded.

What books does she like to read? Who are her spiritual muses and mentors? Does she meditate? What kind of meditations does she enjoy most?

5. Do what you say you’re going to do

Just because your boho babe is good natured and laidback doesn’t mean you can drop the ball.

Call when you say you’re going to call. Text when you say you’re going to text. If you said you’d take her hang gliding on Wednesday, take her hang gliding on Wednesday.

6. Find out what lights her up – artistically or creatively

What is she doing in her off-hours that thrills and recharges her? Maybe it’s baking lush vegan desserts, finger painting, writing children’s stories, singing at the top of her lungs or hip hop dancing. Go on a search for whatever excites her and then reserve a spot in that dance or cooking class – and go with her!

Now that you know what to do – get out there, lover! Cross the farmers’ market, compliment her choice of heirloom tomatoes, and dive in to what just might be the beginning of a beautiful relationship.
