If you’re anything like most men, acing a first date is definitely the top item in your checklist when you go out with a woman.
However, unlike what a lot of so-called “pickup artists” are saying these days, pulling off just that isn’t a walk in the park.
And just imagine how the whole thing will turn out if you follow their advice and “act like the alpha male” and wearing loud clothes.
So if you’re looking to really dazzle a woman the next time you’re going out on a first date, here are a few no-no’s that you should keep in mind to avoid…
Don’t pick a noisy place.
Sure the idea of going for a hip and fun venue for your date is absolutely a smart idea, but overdoing the whole “hip” and “fun” thing is going to lead to disaster even before you really got started.
Make it a point to choose a place that you can talk properly and not say “what” every time you say something.
Apart from being annoying, you can’t also listen to your date intently and exchange meaningful ideas with her while at it, which is one of the biggest deal-breakers in dating.
Don’t slouch and bow your head.
I’ve learned during my extensive research into the female psychology that women tend to think of guys who don’t have proper posture and won’t look them in the eye as not being very self-confident. And you can already have an idea of how your date will go when this happens, right?
Don’t talk about serious stuff.
Some guys mistakenly believe that if they really want to make an impression on a woman during a first date, talking about serious and complicated stuff should be on their checklist.
They think that women will see them as perceptive and intelligent, which will make it easier for them to convince them to say yes to a second date.
But the thing is it will only make your date think that you’re just pompous and a blowhard. Go for trivial topics instead. That’s a surefire way to engage her in a meaningful conversation as you go along.
Don’t touch your phone.
If you’re on a date, always make it a point to give your complete attention to the woman you are out with. Keep your hands off your mobile phone, tablet or any other gadget that you have along. Those tweets and status updates can wait.
