Lets face it, most guys would love it if there was a way to win a woman over on the first date. That way you could just get down to business and start enjoying a relationship right away, rather than needing to wait and go on a bunch more dates before she warms up to you. This begs the question – what are some best practices for a first date to help you impress her and ultimately win her heart?
Well, the first thing to be conscious of is the way that you are being perceived by her. This means knowing exactly what a woman pays attention to and notices about a guy that she is on a date with. This will make it much easier to score high points in these areas.
When a girl prepares for a night out with you, she goes through a lot of trouble. She chooses what she’s going to wear with a lot of care and spends a lot of time and money sprucing and primping up for you. Whether you like it or not, she expects you to do the same for her.
You may take a little less time dressing up but there are a few essentials you have to pay attention to. Look clean and properly groomed. You may not show absolute devotion to style or fashion but you have to look presentable – nails clean and cut, clothes well-pressed, hair combed, face scrubbed fresh. You should smell good – no halitosis, no body odor.
Also be sure that you don not allow yourself to get rusty with your conversational skills. A girl expects to be entranced, if not with exceptionally witty and over-the-top intellectual talk, with at least interesting banter. A girl wants a date who interests her, and who is interested in her. Once you are past the “I like how he/she looks stage,” you have to impress her by how you carry on a conversation.
Do not do a monologue. An exchange of ideas, and light amusing banter, is what will keep her interest glued on you. And if you are able to draw her out of her shell by the interesting questions you have for her, and a sincere interest to find out her answers, you are definitely in for a follow-up date.
And finally, make her feel special. A girl is impressed by the lengths to which a man will go through to keep her happy, amused, interested, and delighted. So be solicitous of her needs. Be the gentleman she wants you to be – open the car door for her, pull out her chair, ask her what she wants to eat, and make sure that you pull out all the stops so that she enjoys this fine night with you. Do all these and you are in for another, and another, and another date with her, if that is what you want.
