I’m sure pulling things off as successfully as possible is the top item in your first date checklist.
However, unlike what so-called “dating gurus” say, achieving this isn’t about showing up on your first date wearing loud apparel and acting like the alpha male, which simply means obnoxious.
I’ve learned a few interesting things during my extensive research into the female psychology and I’m going to share them with you to make your next first date really awesome for the woman you’re out with.
Looking and smelling good is essential.
I know you may have read this line over and over again, but keeping a close eye on your grooming plays a key role when it comes to making a first date great.
See, women are visual creatures who tend to make their impressions on a guy they’re on a date with based on how they look and smell.
If you arrive well-dressed and smelling nicely, you’re sure to earn a lot of brownie points immediately. (Keep in mind to put on clean shoes while at it, too.)
Pick a venue that she’s familiar with.
Unlike what a lot of guys mistakenly think, going for the most expensive venue that you can find for your first date isn’t going to cut it.
This is because she’ll think of your first date more of a job interview instead of an opportunity to get to know you better.
Go for a place that she’s quite familiar with like her local bar or deli so she won’t act and feel reserved on your first date.
Plus, you won’t spend a lot of bucks compared to taking her to a fancy restaurant.
Talk about trivial stuff.
When you engage your date in a conversation, keep in mind to go for topics that are trivial and friendly like her favorite movie or the name of her first pet.
Picking serious ones like politics and similar stuff can make her think you’re already trying too hard to impress her.
As a bonus, you will also tend to pick up a lot of useful information you can use to dazzle her as you go along.
Chivalry is not dead.
Being a gentleman adds a lot of brownie points during your first date, which is definitely going to help boost your chances of making it amazing for her.
Apart from opening doors for the woman you’re out with, lending her your jacket when the weather is a bit nippy is also a nice gesture.
