Natural Born Thriller: Impress Her Without Even Trying
The fast pace of society today forces everyone to make assumptions and respond immediately to these cues. Creating first impressions are more important than ever, especially when it comes to dating. Most men think first dates don't work out because women are simply not interested in them. The truth is, most men fail to think about the minor details that are major deal breakers for women.
Never miss the chance to create a good first impression. Find out what to do when meeting a girl for the first time, from one bro to another.
Make Her the Center of Your Attention
You want your friends to give you their full attention when you talk, right? Women want the same thing. When you're out on a date, focus on her and her needs. The last thing you'd want a girl to say about you is that you're insensitive. When she talks, listen to her - don't just pretend to listen. Women know when you're faking it. Ask questions, smile, and clarify things. These little actions show you're interested with what they're saying, and not just waiting for your turn to talk.
While on your first date, resist the urge to check your phone. Tweeting about your awesome date or texting your buddies about her can wait until the night is over. Put your phone on silent mode or turn it off to avoid getting distracted.
A word of warning: Focusing on her doesn't mean freaking her out with your stares. Direct eye contact is good, but too much intensity isn't great either.
Don't Sound Like a Salesman
In an effort to tell their dates everything that's great about them, most men end up sounding like a salesman. Don't oversell yourself; relax and save your impressive pitch for another day. Besides, if you are who you say you are, your date will see through you and make her conclusions as the night goes on.
Use Humor as Your Armor
Everyone loves a good laugh. A nice joke thrown at the right time can make anyone instantly comfortable. Be careful in giving out jokes, however, as there's a thin line between being witty and absurd. Test the waters first. Make sure she's the type of girl who can handle the kinds of jokes you're about to give. You wouldn't want to offend her with an innocent joke and blow your chances of getting a second date.
Have a Wing Woman
Who else understands women better than another girl? When going on a one-on-one date is too much for you to handle, invite your girl to a casual night out with your closest female friend. Having another woman can reassure your date. Make it obvious that you and your wing woman don't have a romantic relationship, as your girl might get the wrong impression. Having a wing woman tells your date that you're competent enough to be important to another girl. It also assures her that you're not just some guy looking for something to do on a boring night.
There are many ways to get a good first impression. One of the best ways, however, is to stop trying to impress her. Pretending you're someone you're not sets you up for failure. Women love men who are comfortable with themselves. Keep it cool. You're not out on a job interview. Follow the tips and you'll be well on your way to finding the girl who will accept you for all your awesomeness.
