Unlike what a lot of so-called “dating gurus” are suggesting these days, there is no surefire magic bullet that can help you ace a first date.
Now while this may sound surprising, pulling it off is more than just picking a nice venue or perhaps meticulously planning your wardrobe for the big day (or night).
There’s no need to worry just yet though.
Here are a few key tips that I’ve learned during my extensive research into the female psychology that will help you boost your chances of wowing the woman you’re out with on your next first date…
Planning is key.
A lot of men mistakenly think that going for the most expensive restaurant they could find for a first date is the only thing they need to do to ace it.
Although taking her to a nice place is a good thing, going the extra mile and doing a bit of research while at it is also a priority.
Make it a point to know what your date’s preferred food and drink choices are as well as the kind of music and crowd she is into.
Besides making her feel right off the bat that you really want to make your date a complete success, she’ll also be more sociable and relaxed being with you when she feels really comfortable.
(And while we’re on the subject, here are some grooming tips that you should have in your checklist to really make a good impression on a first date.)
Be a good listener.
Listening intently to your date is one simple way of making a connection with her.
Apart from catching a lot of stuff that can help you impress her even more as you go along, you’ll also stimulate her brain to release feel-good hormones. This means she won’t be reserved the whole time.
Don’t have an idea how to strike up a meaningful conversation with her?
Nice topics to start things off are her favorite TV show, the name of her first pet or her most unforgettable carnival ride.
Don’t be touchy-feely.
Although emphasizing your ideas with gestures is a great way to make a point, keep in mind not to overdo the whole thing by already being touchy-feely.
Besides making her feel that you’re creepy, it’s also going to end a first date prematurely. A simple pat on the forearm is going to suffice this time.
