The first date is always important and how the man acts on the first date would determine if there would be subsequent dates.
First impression matters a lot, and whether you know this or not, she’s observing your every move and trying to figure out if she would like you or not.
The key to having a successful first date is in your hands; you can actually thrill her on the first date if you do the right things.
These twelve tips are important first date tips for every man who wants to thrill a lady.
1. YOUR APPEARANCE MATTERS
Your appearance would either put you in good light or create a bad impression. She must have taken her time to look great for the date and would definitely expect you to do same.
She would definitely weigh your fashion sense, and if you are dressed like a high school boy, it would be an uphill task from there.
2. SMELL GOOD
A good perfume would also do a trick or two, though you should be careful not to have it excessive.
Having a nice smell would definitely endear her to you; talking about first impression, this come in handy.
3. BE A GENTLEMAN
She expects you to be a charmer, and one way to do that is to be a gentleman; open doors for her, make her feel comfortable and be on your best behaviour.
4. COMPLIMENT HER
Try to be spontaneous with your compliment; inasmuch as you ought to compliment her, it shouldn’t be excessive. Compliment her early in the date and make it spontaneous.
5. BE YOURSELF
Be relaxed, be comfortable and don’t try to sell who you are not to her. Trying too hard to impress her would make you look unoriginal and she would easily notice. Just relax and have a good time.
6. BE CONFIDENT, NOT COCKY
There is a thin line between being confident and being cocky. Women are attracted to confident men, but respectable women see cocky men as boring and a turn off.
7. KEEP YOUR PHONES AWAY
Your phones shouldn’t interfere with your date; they should be kept silent and kept far away. When you become busy with your phone, especially on the first date, it would make the date boring, and you also pass a bad message.
8. ASK QUESTIONS, BUT…
Ask her questions, but not like she’s in an interview. Your questions should be aimed at knowing more about her, but you should make it more interactive. Women love to talk, but they also love to listen too.
9. DON’T PRESSURE FOR SEX
It’s a total no. The first date shouldn’t be about sex; rather it should be about you showing that you care about a lady and respect her enough to want more than just sex from her.
10. PAY THE BILL
Pay the bill man! Pay the bill! It’s more romantic and manly when you do this. It’s the first date; you handle this.
11. DON’T BE A BORE
Learn to keep conversations going, and try to make it two-sided. Don’t do all the talking and don’t let her do all the talking; make her feel comfortable to talk to you. This way, the conversation would never get boring.
12. SMILE MORE
Smiling usually gives a charm and a positive aura around you. Smile more, but be careful not to smile sheepishly.
With these eleven tips put into play, there would most likely be a second date. With these tips, you would most likely pass a positive image.
