So you’re on a first date with a woman you like and you want everything to go smoothly as you can…
However, unlike what a lot of guys mistakenly believe, it’s not enough to look like a movie star and reserve a table for two in a posh restaurant to really sweep a woman off her feet during a first date.
It’s also about keeping clear of a few dating mistakes that can easily ruin your chances of dazzling her no matter how hard you try. Make sure you check out the rest of this article to find out what they are:
Nothing beats being late for a first date when it comes to starting off with the wrong foot with the woman you’re out with. Apart from making her feel that you aren’t that focused on your commitments, it also gives her the notion that there’s a big possibility that you’re just forced to go on a date with her.
And when this happens, chances are you’ll have a very hard time setting things right even with your certified A-game.
Always checking your phone.
Let’s face it. Choosing to stick your face in front of your phone every few minutes instead of interacting with a woman on your first date is absolutely one of the most annoying things you’ll ever do while at it.
No matter how tempted you are, check texts, emails, status updates and tweets until after your date. It’s much smarter to engage your date in a meaningful conversation. Apart from helping you establish trust, it can also boost your chances of scoring a second date without a hitch.
Not maintaining proper eye contact.
How would you feel if a person didn’t look at you in the eye when you try to get a discussion going? Intimidated and awkward, right? Well, this is exactly how you will make your date feel when you don’t maintain proper eye contact with her.
If you think this is tough to pull off, here’s a trick to make the whole thing easier. Focus on the bridge of her nose when you become too shy to look her straight in the eye.
Downing too much booze.
Although there is nothing wrong with drinking alcoholic beverages during your first date, it even enhances the taste of foods when paired properly, consuming too much during the same will only lead to disaster.
Apart from making you talk and act funny, downing excessive amounts of booze also prevents you from making your date feel relaxed. She’ll just feel stressed when you’re having one too many.
