I’m really getting rather frustrated with the things that so-called “dating gurus” are saying when it comes to breaking the ice when you go out with a woman.
Besides remembering to give her the notion that you’re the alpha male by acting a tad snobbish, they’re also suggesting that opening your conversation with difficult subjects makes her feel that you’re smart.
Following this strategy not only makes you look like a jerk, but a blowhard as well, which already gives you a preview of how your date will turn out.
But the thing is I’ve picked up a few useful pointers that will boost your chances of successfully breaking the ice when you’re out on a date with a woman during my extensive research into the female psychology.
Read on to know what these are…
Switch off your mobile phone.
Sure having a mobile phone is a necessity these days, not turning it off when you’re trying to break the ice during a date will only get you distracted.
And not only that, it will also make your date think that you’re not really interested in her.
Make it a point to switch off your phone so you can really focus on your date. Just sticking with silent mode or vibrate won’t cut it.
Maintain appropriate eye contact.
Looking the woman you’re going on a date with in the eye is a must to make her feel that you’re being honest with her.
Avoiding her gaze will only give her the notion that you’re shady and having a date with you is a mistake, which can easily make her feel stressed instead of being comfortable in your company.
Got a problem having and keeping eye contact? Try focusing on the tip of her nose instead of her eyes at first to help you get on track.
Ask trivial questions.
I know this sounds surprising right now, but starting things off with really simple stuff like asking her what the name of her first pet is or perhaps her favorite TV show boosts your chances of engaging her in a meaningful conversation.
Besides being easy to answer, asking your date trivial questions also makes her feel that you’re not pretentious. A win-win situation, right?
Listen to her intently.
Always keep in mind that listening intently to a woman when you’re trying to get a meaningful exchange of ideas going is as important as knowing how to break the ice with her.
Doing this doesn’t just give her the notion that you’re really interested with what she’s saying, but you’re enjoying her company as well.
