Men: first dates are always special, and they are your best chance to make a relationship possible in the future. There are certain rules for dating that you must follow if you want the girl to become an important part of your life. We have compiled all the rules into 10 simple points.
1. Dress attractively, but do not overdress
A casual, trendy, and clean pair of clothes are enough. You do not have to spend money on big brands. Also, spray a nice perfume over yourself. Smell appeals to women more than anything else.
2. Greet her with confidence and give a small gift.
When you meet her, look into her eyes and smile a little. Give her a flower or a box of chocolates to start the date. Don’t give her very expensive gifts because she may feel intimated. (Besides, you will lose a lot of money if the date doesn’t work out!)
3. Compliment her. But do not flatter shamelessly.
Compliment her on her appearance, because she could have gone to a lot of trouble to look pretty on the date. Throughout the entire date, compliment her on the things you like about her. But don’t get too corny or flattering. Girls hate guys like that.
4. Take her to a special, but less expensive place.
Again, someone who goes to a very expensive restaurant on the first date may feel uncomfortable there. She may feel that you are one of those show-offs. She will also become skeptical that you might ask for something in return for such favors. Take her to a place that is quiet and special, where you can have a good time together.
5. Ask questions about her life, but don’t grill her.
Show a genuine interest in knowing her as a person. Talk about her likes, dislikes, goals, etc. But do not bombard them with personal questions like past relationships or family matters.
6. Do not expect her to pay.
She may be very insistent on paying the bill or splitting it. But don’t let her pay at any price. If she offers to pay a small amount of money for other activities that you do, let her pay. That way, you don’t seem to overpower her.
7. Communicate honestly and try to keep her entertained.
Try to have a logical and cheerful conversation throughout the entire date. Listen to her most of the time without bragging about yourself. If you feel that the conversation has reached a critical point, don’t let it turn into an argument. Try to take things easier and make her laugh as much as you can. The more she laughs, the better your chances are of getting a second date with her.
8. Do something unusual, rather than just dinner and a movie.
Of course, you can take her to the movies and have dinner. But apart from that, you should try to do something with her that is very exclusive and that she will always remember. For example, show her your favorite place to hang out or your favorite constellation, or take her to an art gallery or to the beach.
9. Do not plan a second date
Flirting and being clueless is a kind of excitement for most women. So do not plan the second date on the first date. That way she’ll lose interest in you and she might be repelled. Let her wander around and wait a few days until you plan a second date.
10. End with a goodbye kiss, if possible.
End the date with a small, sweet goodbye kiss if you are parting for the day. At the time you bring her home, try to steer the conversation to a romantic side. This will leave a strong impression on her. Too much intimacy on the first date is a strict “no-go”.
