At least once a month, one of my clients will come into my office upset about how her date went the previous weekend. Either she feels she did something wrong or worries that the guy didn’t seem to be too interested in her.
For the next 45 minutes, we dissect the evening in question and I offer suggestions on how to salvage a second date; or I congratulate her on discovering that he isn’t worth another chance.
Many times, however, the problem lies with my client not understanding the purpose of a first date. Too often women (and men) concentrate on such things has compatibility, attraction and past relationship history.
All of these things are important but not for a first encounter. They are too in-depth for a casual get-to-know-you conversation. In fact, even though I can tell you what to look for to see if he’s interested in you, you’ll make a better impression on him if you simply focus on him having a good time.
The only thing a woman really needs to be concerned with is conveying her femininity. This is the easiest and most reliable way to make a good first impression.
The three keys to a great first date are: wear a dress, smile often, and allow him to speak first at the start of the date. These three things will make him feel masculine and he will naturally find you more attractive. That’s because the first date is about being a woman, not revealing everything about yourself.
If these suggestions seem silly or sexist then I am afraid you don’t understand men. Men like women in dresses because it radiates softness; making a man want to hold and cuddle her.
Smiling at him always makes him feel more self-assured. Letting him speak first conveys respect which is every man’s greatest desire, even more than being loved. Show him that you have the ability to be the woman he fantasizes about and he will beg you for another date.
Once you have gone out three or more times, then you are free to s-l-o-w-l-y let him get to know you as an individual. Since you have shown him that you are every bit a woman, he will be much more motivated to get to know you as a person.
