Below you will find five time tested tips for creating a good first impression and for enjoying a successful first date that will leave the lady wanting to meet with you again.
Secret #1 – Grooming –
Many men do not realize the importance of good grooming when it comes to dating girls in general. A woman will notice little things, like whether you bothered to shave or whether your hands and nails are clean and well-manicured. Boys, leave your scruffy but favourite pair of hiking boots with the tear in the leather at home!
Make sure you are wearing something un-creased and well-fitted, minus stains or rips. Be sure that you smell fresh and clean and not like you just stepped out of the gym on a hot summer’s afternoon after an hour’s workout. You do not need to reek the room out with your favourite aftershave, but a subtle hint of fragrance will be noticed and appreciated.
Secret #2 – Body Language –
Many people do not realize the importance of body language when it comes to dating girls. This unspoken language can relay tons of information to a casual observer. Embrace your full height, stand tall with your shoulders back, head up… no matter if you are short or tall, good posture creates an impression of self-confidence.
Be careful about folding your arms or crossing your legs. This signals a desire for self-protection or an unconscious need to block oneself off from the other person. Be sure to make eye contact during conversation and a simple gesture like touching the girl’s arm during conversation lets her know that you are listening and acknowledging her presence.
Secret #3 – Listening –
The entire point of dating girls is to find some common ground and we learn about others by listening to what they tell us. Every person has something to teach us and this is a good way to find out more about them. Even if the topic is not one that really interests you, remember than an individual is a multi-faceted being and that as you ask questions, listening to your date’s answers, you may find an avenue of conversation that may well interest you.
Secret #4 – Charm –
Be a gentleman, open doors for her, offer the lady her seat first, stand when she does and allow her to walk ahead of you. These things may seem unimportant in today’s world of emancipated women, but a gentleman’s approach is something that any girl will appreciate. Simple courtesy goes a long way, even in the simple use of the words “please” and “thank you.”
Secret #5 – Topics to avoid –
Yes, there are a few. The death knell of any date is the sound of you droning on and on… and on about your failed marriage, relationship, business and so forth. Cynicism and complaints are definite turn offs. Stick to conversational topics and keep the tone light-hearted.
So, no talk of death, or your latest therapy session with your psychiatrist where you delved into the emotional trauma associated with the maiming of your pet chihuahua. Stay away from any topic related to past relationships that ended badly or any topic that may bring out feelings of anger, resentment or pain in you.
