If you’re like most guys, chances are you’d like to ace a first date with a woman you’ve had your eye on for a long time now.
However, I’m really disappointed at what a lot of self-proclaimed “dating gurus” say. Instead of acing a date, you will only end up making the whole thing a disaster sooner or later if you follow their ridiculous tips.
During my extensive research into the female psychology though, I’ve learned a few useful tips to keep in mind if you’re looking to pull off just that. Here are a few mistakes that you should steer clear of no matter what during a first date:
First date mistake #1: You just wing the whole thing.
Adequate preparation is key if you’re hoping to ace a first date. Not giving it the preparation it really deserves can easily ruin the whole thing.
I don’t mean combing through the details of your date tooth and nail though. Simply make sure you pick a nice venue and plan out other elements like the food and drinks you will have as well as the conversation topics you’ll discuss.
Apart from calling the venue to ensure your reservation, remember to also call your date to ask if she prefers a certain type of entrée or beverage during your affair. Moreover, this makes her feel you’re really nice and responsible, which means you’re getting a lot of brownie points while at it.
First date mistake #2: You start the conversation in a serious note.
A first date should be fun and light…not something that’s serious and heavy.
Most guys tend to ruin a first date because they start off the conversation with a serious topic because they want the woman they’re out with to have the notion that they’re smart. The things is you’ll only end up making her feel you are pretentious when you do this.
Keep in mind to go for trivial topics like her favorite book or movie, or perhaps the name of her first pet. She’ll be more eager to talk to you in the process as well because she won’t think you’re full of hot air.
First date mistake #3: You forget that a first date should be fun.
Unlike what a lot guys mistakenly think, a first date isn’t about establishing a romantic relationship with a woman right off the bat. It’s more of knowing her better so you can be friends.
And once you’ve done that, you can take things up a notch higher the next time. So keep things friendly, relaxed and fun. You’ll be surprised how things will turn out for the better.
