I’m pretty sure that scoring a second date is your top priority when you’re taking out a woman for the very first time.
But the thing is successfully doing this isn’t about acting the alpha male or wearing loud clothes like self-proclaimed “dating gurus” are saying.
Make sure you read on to learn some simple ways of increasing your chances of convincing the woman you’re going out on a first date with to have a second one with you.
Plan your getup ahead of time.
Women are very particular with how you look and smell. If you show up on a date wearing some hastily thrown getup, you’re in for a lot of disappointment.
Make it a point to plan your apparel beforehand – at least a couple of days beforehand – to find out what works and what doesn’t.
And while we’re on the subject, wear clean shoes. Women are quite meticulous with footwear, too.
Switch off your phone.
Now while phones are necessities in today’s modern world, being distracted by it during a first date will just lead to disaster.
Keep in mind to switch it off during your first date so you can really give your utmost attention to the woman you’re going out with.
The status updates, tweets, funny emails and videos as well as the other stuff you normally check out with your phone can wait.
Ask trivial questions.
Sure intelligence is sexy for women, but starting things off with something difficult and complicated isn’t going to cut it.
This is because it will just give your date the notion that you’re trying too hard to impress her, which will just make her feel awkward and uncomfortable.
One effective way of doing this is asking trivial questions. Besides making it easy for her to relate to, she won’t also have a hard time answering them as you go along.
Examples like the TV show she’s following or the name of her first pet should be your guide, too.
Get and maintain ideal eye contact.
Getting and maintaining ideal eye contact is a must because this gesture gives the woman you’re on a first date with the notion that you’re not someone shady.
Make it a point to establish eye contact when you’re exchanging ideas with her.
If you’re not that comfortable to do so, you can always focus your vision to the upper bridge of her nose.
