Think women are enigmas that you can’t figure out? Think again! There are certain things that will catch her attention on the very first date, and are guaranteed to keep you on your mind long after the goodnight kiss is over. Here’s where you start:
Pay attention. You’re on a date with her, so make her the center of your attention. Don’t notice anyone else in the room — unless, of course, it is someone that has made you both laugh, privately, together. Lots of eye contact is good, and keep your body language open toward her. Show her that you are entirely there, entirely present, and in the moment.
Give honest compliments. Don’t just tell her she looks hot. Tell her why. You have to understand: Women are told they are hot, pretty, sexy, and beautiful all the time. It’s a way men try to get into a woman’s pants. If you compliment her, do it with sincerity. “I love your hair — that shade of red makes your pretty blue eyes stand out” or “You have the most delicate hands” are comments tailored toward her. She will definitely notice the difference.
Ask questions. Show her that you want to know everything about her. Ask questions about everything from her kids to her job to her dog. Share tidbits of your own life, too. Make a point of getting to know her, and if you want to really impress her, bring up something she said early in the conversation as the night is getting late. It shows her you remember what she said.
“Tell me more.” If she’s talking about something that interests you, go further. Ask questions about it. Ask her to tell you more. If you simply want to know the little details of her life, tell her that, too. Ask her questions about her favorite memory, the best time in her life, or the things that make her smile.
Reveal something. Talk about yourself, but not in the general sense. Tell her things about you that make her want to know you better, things that reveal a softer side of you. Tell her about your childhood dream and what you think of it now. Tell her about your parents. Tell her how much you loved and miss your grandparents. Give her something to connect to — and she will definitely remember you long after the night is over.
