If you’re anything like most guys, I’m betting that your top priority when you go out with a woman for the very first time is convincing her to have another date with her anytime soon.
However, unlike what a lot of self-proclaimed “dating gurus” are suggesting, though, pulling off just that isn’t about doing a super-secret technique or perhaps saying words that activate a woman’s desire to say yes to Date Number 2 with you.
I’ve picked up a few useful pointers during my extensive research into the female psychology that can help boost your chances of landing that second date with her as you go along…
Let her in on the planning and organizing.
Sure the norm would be taking the initiative when it comes to planning and organizing a first date, but you’re definitely missing out on a lot of brownie points when you don’t ask her for her inputs when you’re putting the details of the whole thing together.
Besides making her feel that you really value her participation and ideas, you’ll also be in the know of the things she likes that you can use to dazzle her on the big day (or night).
Showing up late on your first date is one of the worst mistakes that you can ever make. See, this just makes the woman you’re out with feel that you’re either not that into her or perhaps simply straight-up negligent with your management of time.
And this will just promote a surge in stress hormones in her body that will make her feel awkward, impatient and anxious. How’s that to start the ball rolling on your first date?
Arriving at least 10 minutes earlier is a nice benchmark to keep in mind.
Switch your phone to silent.
Now while phones are necessities these days, spending more time checking it out than interacting with your date will just give her the notion that you’re not really interested in her. Make it a point to switch it to silent and never stare at it unless you’ve got an important call to answer.
Or she’d like to take a picture with you.
Remember that those tweets, status updates and other stuff can wait.
Maintain appropriate eye contact.
Not having appropriate eye contact with your date gives her the idea that you’re not that confident as a guy or perhaps make her feel that you’re creepy.
You can simply focus on the upper bridge of her nose if you feel embarrassed to do this.
