Set An Intention
While you’re grooming and getting ready to finally meet your POI, on a first date, it really helps to think about how you would like the encounter to pan out.
Visualise the two of you relaxing and enjoying each other’s company, with conversation that flows effortlessly and naturally. Set the intention to be present and attentive, and to enjoy a fun and memorable experience. Trust that the outcome of the date is highly favourable.
Body language plays a huge part in how another person perceives you. Greet your date with a smile and a friendly approach. There will be plenty of time for flirtatious play, as you build a rapport and establish a connection.
Pay attention to your date’s body language, and mirror it discreetly. Smile and laugh when they do, and use eye contact to make an intense nonverbal statement. Lean in slightly to let your date know that you’re interested. If they respond with a gentle, playful touch on your arm, it’s a sign that they’re interested in you too!
Be Interested & Interesting
The more interested you appear in your date, the more interested in you they will be. Talk about a variety of date-friendly topics, and use humour to make your date feel relaxed and at ease. Engage them in conversation that is enthralling and entertaining. If you know a subject/topic well, it’s fine to share your knowledge. But avoid being boastful, and be mindful that you don’t dominate the entire conversation.
When listening to your date talk about their interests, pay attention and ask thoughtful questions that demonstrate that you’re interested in what they have to say.
Show Off Good Manners
While appearance and attitude certainly go a long way towards impressing and influencing your date’s opinion of you, good manners are equally important.
First off, ensure that you practice good personal hygiene and grooming habits. It’s essential that you’re respectful at all times. Avoid fiddling with your clothes or hair, or using exaggerated hand gestures when you’re conversing. Talking with your mouth full, picking your nose, and being rude and crude, are unacceptable and instant turn-offs.
Old-school chivalry, like holding a door open for your date, walking on the outside of the pavement, and standing up when a woman stands, are still widely considered to be charming habits that create a lasting, and positive, first impression.
Give Sincere Compliments
Women love to feel good about their appearance. Paying your date sincere compliments about the way she looks, or the way she acts, will make her feel special. Telling her that she has an intelligent mind and good conversation skills will earn you double brownie points!
The best and most effective way of making a great first impression, and creating a connection with someone that you want to get to know, is to simply be yourself. Be friendly and approachable, and be prepared to let your guard down a little. Just be you, and let your personality and charm shine through so that they dazzle and impress your date.
