If you’re anything like most men, you probably think that acing a first date is as easy as looking like a movie star. A few spritzes of an expensive cologne also helps boost your chances of doing just that as well.
However, having a successful date is more than just looking and smelling great. It is also avoiding making these mistakes that a lot of guys don’t even have the slightest clue they are doing them already.
You hog the spotlight.
Perhaps one of the biggest mistakes a lot of guys make when they’re out with a woman is not listening intently to them when they are engaged in a conversation. Apart from giving them the notion that you are interested in their ideas and feelings, you are also making them feel anxious and impatient.
See, listening is one way to establish trust with your date. Unless you make a woman feel that she can easily open up to you, chances are she won’t be trusting you anytime soon, which also means that it’s game over when it comes to your date.
Moreover, besides blowing your chances of making your date successful, you won’t also get to know the woman you’re out with better that can easily help you plan your next strategy to make her fall for you.
You’re not listening to her.
Not listening attentively to your date is one thing and talking too much is another. Simply not giving the woman you’re out with the chance to share her ideas easily turns her off.
This is because your date will think that you are self-centered and rather difficult to engage in a discussion with. And when this happens, your chances of earning her trust are going to be bleak.
Keep in mind to make the conversation mostly about your date and you’ll be just fine. Make it a point to find out a few interesting things about the woman you’re out with like her favorite fruit or movie and the discussion will flow smoothly.
You don’t give her a hint of mystery.
Women like a bit of mystery when it comes to their dates. Simply opening yourself up to a woman as soon as you engage in a discussion is definitely a no-no because she will think you’re boring since you’ve already bared it all.
Have a few mysterious details here and there to intrigue her and you’ll pull off a successful date in no time.
Being late…which is a dating mortal sin.
Showing up late on a first date is perhaps the biggest mistake you’ll ever make. She will immediately have the wrong notion about you, too. And you don’t want that to happen, right?
