Here’s a first date checklist you should give a once over…

I’m sure you’d like to impress the woman you’re out with on a first date. However, pulling off just that can be very tricky, no matter what a lot of self-proclaimed “dating gurus” say.

During my extensive research into the female psychology though, I managed to make a list of useful things to keep in mind that may help you boost your chances of dazzling a woman on your first date.

Your hygiene is key.

First things first.

How you look and smell is a very important factor when it comes to impressing the woman you are out with. Not paying close attention to your hygiene gives her the notion that you’re irresponsible, which can lead to feelings of doubt if she should be dating you.

Just remember to take a meticulous shower, use deodorant, brush your teeth carefully, get rid of excessive facial hair as well as keep your fingernails short and clean. A spritz or two of a nice smelling yet gentle cologne or perfume also helps a lot.

Keep the discussion light and trivial.

A lot of guys mistakenly think that talking about intellectual stuff during a first date is a surefire technique to impress a woman. It will only give your date the notion that you are pretentious.

The best way to break the ice with the woman you are out with? Ask your date what her favorite book or movie is and she will start to open up. Steer clear from sensitive topics like politics and religion while you’re at it as well.

(You have to listen to her intently while you’re at it, too.)

Pick the right outfit.

I’m sure you’ve heard about the “peacocking” technique popularized by a “dating guru” that involves wearing outrageous and loud clothing to attract a woman’s attention. Well, that’s pretty ridiculous and you’ll only end up embarrassing your date.

Instead, choose an outfit that is carefully planned, but not over the top. Have it properly ironed as well to give yourself a snappy appearance. Now while it’s alright to put on jewelry and accessories, make it minimalist like a watch and cuff link combo to avoid looking that you’re simply trying too hard.

Don’t be late.

Being tardy even for a few minutes during a first date can make a woman feel that you’re not just into her or you think of her as someone dull and boring. Make sure you arrive earlier at the venue to keep things in check instead.
