We have all been on those first dates that end up being a nightmare. Even the good ones can start out bad sometimes. We either feel awkward; don’t know what to say or opposing personalities take some getting used to. It’s best to have an idea of what to say going in. Make sure they are not obvious lines or clichés like talking about the weather. If you have an idea of things to talk about before your date; it will help you get past the awkward stage of getting to know a stranger.
Ask About Your Female Date
You might have heard this before, but it’s a good rule of thumb. Ask her about HER. Most people of both sexes like to talk about themselves. Especially Cougars, and especially Millionaires, just as an FYI. It’s usually the easiest thing to talk about. While she is telling you about herself; you can interject if she tells you something about herself that relates to you. Just remember to not stay on the subject of you too long. Bring the conversation back around to how it relates to her. You will find many things in this conversation that you can branch out from. Doing this alone can sometimes help you tremendously on a first date.
Be Confident Without Being a Dick
Women love a man with confidence even if they lack in other areas. Don’t second guess yourself or you will stumble. Talk about how you feel and what interests you without worrying about whether she is interested. If you keep it short and sweet while being charming, she will be interested.
Always Honestly and Sincerely Compliment
Another common rule of thumb is to compliment her. That doesn’t mean just her clothes or how hot she is. Compliment what she is talking about and be genuine. Let her know you are listening and that you are interested in what she is talking about. This will help endear her to you and make you a memorable date.
Be a Gentleman
This is obvious, but different girls have different ideas of what gentlemanly behavior is. Some girls don’t like gentlemen at all, but that’s for another discussion. Pay attention to her and how she responds to you. Don’t adjust who you are based on her reactions, but paying attention to her sensibilities will help you get a feel of what she is like so you won’t say the wrong thing and be misunderstood.
Now, with these simple tips I’m certain that if you put forth any effort to effectively act on these ideas you will for sure increase your chances of making a stronger connection with your first date. Take my advice as I know it first hand!
