Girls, 10 ways to impress on a date
Your guide to the perfect date
Need some dating advice? Then look no further. We have dating tips that will help you choose what to wear, do and say on your next romantic night out:
As you flit through your wardrobe trying to find something that covers up your “disaster” areas but also shows him that you are both sophisticated and sexy, then consider this: for men, the color red signals sex and romance. Researchers dispute why men see red as synonymous with desire, but in five different experiments the girl that wore red was rated more attractive than those women who wore other colours.
We all know that men have very little time for chatter. They’re just not built for talking to about your colleagues, your cat or that woman who gave birth without knowing she was pregnant. To have something to chat about on your date read a newspaper or two, watch the news and catch up on the entertainment reviews. Chatting about a recent event, a new band or a hot movie that’s just out will make for engaging conversation for you both.
Dating can be difficult and we’ve all been let down in love at some point in our lives. To be successful in dating though we have to shake off the past and be brave. If one of your friends has recently been dumped, or you’ve got some man-bashing mates, as harsh as it sounds, try to avoid them before you meet up with your guy. You need a positive mindset when you start a new relationship and remember that this man is not your ex.
Get the right hip ratio
Being beautiful is something we all aspire to and spend time trying to achieve; but have you ever taken out your calculator and tried to create an attractiveness ratio? If you haven’t, don’t worry, the scientists have created one for you. They found that men prefer women with a waist to hip ratio of 0.7. To calculate yours use this formula: Waist Measurement ÷ Hip Measurement = Ratio. If you don’t hit 0.7, buy a thick waist belt to wear on your date.
It’s true, we all like a compliment, but it’s a known fact that men love a compliment. Avoid the boring and dull comments like, “You look nice” or, “You’re so funny”. Men will have heard these so many times that they no longer affect his ego. Instead be more subtle and tell him that you think he would be good at climbing, or being on stage; anything that makes him look great. Or, after he’s told you something about himself tell him you’re impressed by what he’s just said.
Get lush locks
Guys love thick hair because it signals to them that you are healthy. If you’re not naturally blessed with thick, luscious hair then use these tricks to look great on your date. When your hair is damp apply mousse to your roots, flip your hair upside down and blow-dry upwards. You should then run straightners over the mid-length sections and ends of your hair. If you’d prefer instantly big hair then opt for hair extensions. You can choose synthetic or real hair.
Be his right hand woman
A packed bar or club may not sound like the perfect end to a great date, but if you want to take things further with your man, then whisk him off into a busy crowd. Being surrounded by lots of people and noise is the perfect disguise for you to firstly, get close to him, and secondly talk to him in his right ear. Oddly, researchers found that men were more generous to their female participant if she asked for something in his right ear.
The success of a date relies upon that end-of-the-night smooch. Firstly, check your lips are in good condition. Exfoliate them with a toothbrush and apply lip balm regularly. Secondly, when the heat of the date is rising, maintain eye contact and add the occasional cheeky smile. Then, once you’re locked in a passionate embrace make sure you bring your hips together to increase one another’s desire, vary the speed and pressure of the kiss and feel free to bite his lip gently.
Get over it
One of the most valuable dating tips that is often forgotten is to laugh when something goes wrong. A date is a high-pressured event that will always be nerve wracking. As a result, bad things often happen. You might spill your drink, fall over or say something dim. Don’t worry though; it’s all about the recovery. If you can laugh the embarrassment away he’ll see you’ve got a great sense of humor and it will break the ice.
Let him know you want him
It’s hardly breaking news, but men think about sex a lot. Most men won’t try to sleep with you on the first date though. If you do fancy seeing what he’s like under the sheets then let him know that you feel hot for him – even if you’re not going to sleep with him this time. Be careful though, you don’t want to lead him on. To start you can touch his arm, brush something off from his shirt or rest your leg upon his. Little signs like these will tell him everything.
