The biggest misconception among men is that you have to be the hottest guy in the room to impress a woman. The truth of the matter is, it is very rare for a woman to fall for a man solely based on his looks.
The top two things women look for in a man are, confidence & sense of humor. And if a man is chivalrous and knows how to treat a lady on a date, he has an excellent chance of winning over her heart.
How to Impress a Woman:
While it may seem so basic to recommend calling her on the phone, as a Matchmaker & Dating Coach, I cannot tell you how many women tell me their only form of communication with someone they are dating is through email or worse yet, texts! Your communication with her should be primarily phone calls, with a mix of emails and texts.
Plan a Great Date
Again this seems so basic, but women don’t like it when a guy asks her out and asks her to pick the restaurant. In the early stages of dating, you should never leave it up to the woman to plan the date. You may ask her for her input, but you should be the man and plan a creative unique date.
She took a lot of time and effort to get ready for a date with you, so make sure you notice and appreciate it by complimenting her. Not only should you tell her how beautiful she looks, but you should also compliment her on something she’s wearing or on the scent of her perfume.
Open the Door
Opening the door to the cab/car and the restaurant should be done without question, however do not forget when she’s getting out of the cab/car to offer her your hand and help her out.
When you arrive at your destination, be sure to help her take off her coat. And when you’re leaving do the same and help her put on her coat.
Crossing the Street
If she’s wearing high heels, make sure when you’re crossing the street to notice if there are cobblestones or potholes and offer her your arm or hand to ensure she does not trip or fall.
Sitting Down for Dinner
When you are being seated by the maitre’ d, pull out the chair for her. She will be impressed, as men rarely do this for their dates.
Be a Wine Connoisseur
There is nothing sexier than a man who is knowledgeable about wine. Take pride in ordering excellent wine, swirling it in a glass and tasting it properly. And during dinner, it’s important to make sure her wine glass is never empty.
If you decide to share an appetizer, do not make her serve herself. Be a gentleman and offer to serve her a portion and then serve yourself.
During dinner if she excuses herself to go to the restroom, be sure to stand up when she leaves AND when she returns. Trust me, if you do this she will notice you were raised properly and are a true gentleman.
No Cell Phones
Never take a call or text during your date. The only time it is acceptable is if it is urgent. In which case, make sure you tell her who and why you have to take the call/text, otherwise she will assume it is another woman.
Never Check Out Other Women
You should never check out other women when you are on a date. For some reason, men think they can take a quick glance to check out another woman without their date noticing. Wrong! Women are like hawks and will notice when you do so. She may not say anything to you at the time, but she will assume you are a player.
Make Sure She Gets Home Safely
Show her you care about her and her safety. Make sure you drive her home, pay for the cab ride home, or walk her home.
The Next Day
If you enjoyed the date and you want to see her again, make sure you call (not text or email) her the next day. Let her know how much you enjoyed the date, her company and ask her out again.
Best dating tips for men? To remember, chivalry is not dead!
You may feel it is perfectly fine to practice just a few of the dating tips, but the truth of the matter is, if you do that you will just be like every other guy she dates. However, if you implement and practice all of the tips, you will stand out from all the other men she dates and trust me, she will be impressed. It is the man who is the complete gentleman who will win over the heart of a beautiful woman.
