Men, How Not To Screw Up On First Date

1. Clean Up Your Act

The worst thing you could do when going on a date is to turn up unshaven and looking dirty. You would be appalled if she turned up in the same state. It may be fickle but unfortunately it is true appearances count for a lot.

2. Be On Time

Whatever you do, do not turn up late or you will definitely give her the wrong impression. Not only will she think that you have stood her up, she will also think you are unreliable.

3. Be Chivalrous

Be a gentleman, open the door for her, pull out her chair in the restaurant. Women like to feel special, treat her like a lady and you will do well.

A woman loves to be complimented, even if she does not show it. Do not go overboard though, but let her feel you are attracted to her.

5. Be Interested

Ask questions and genuinely listen to her answers. After all you are going on a date to get to know her. There is nothing more that a woman likes than when someone is interested in what they have to say.

Prepare yourself for the date. Think about what it is you would like to find out about her. Also think about what she might ask you. The last thing you want is for the conversation to dry up half way into the date.

7. Steer Clear Of Sex Talk

It is advisable that you do not bring up adult matters or sex toys for example on at least the first three dates. In the long run this can only do you good and she will certainly be more interested in you if you hold back.

8. Foot The Bill

When it comes to paying the bill, offer to pay. If she insists on paying, then offer to go halves and split the bill.

9. Seal The Deal

What about the goodnight kiss? Some women prefer not to kiss after a first date, while others will be disappointed if you don’t. Judge the situation for yourself, her body language will give you a good idea of what’s right.

10. Be Honest If You Do Not Fancy Her

When leaving, only ask for her number or tell her you will call if you really mean it. In the long run this will be best for both of you. If you do like her and are interested, then don’t be afraid to let her know.
