When you first meet a girl, there are a few things you should do to make a good impression on her. Doing these things will help keep you in her favor which will help later on if you do decide to take things to the next level. Most of the things on this list may seem simple, but they can make a big difference if you follow them.
1. Be Yourself
This rule is tried and true for almost all social interaction, and it certainly applies when you meet a woman for the first time. One mistake a lot of guys make is that they think they know what kind of a man a girl wants, and tries to exude that type of personality. This usually comes out in the form of overconfidence and machoism (think of the average meat head). If a guy acts like this only when meeting a girl for the first time, he might come off too strong and scare her away. He also might be seen as fake, which is a huge turnoff no matter who you’re dealing with.
2. Smile More
It never hurts to smile more when you meet people for the first time. People like to be liked by other people and the easiest way to express a liking for another person is to smile when you see them. Think of how popular and well liked a cute puppy dog is that eagerly wags its tail and has a big smile on its face for anyone it sees. If you keep a natural smile on your face, you can help convey friendliness and positive vibes, which is crucial in first encounters with anyone.
3. Be Well Dressed
Women love a man that can dress well. When you dress well, you convey confidence, style, and charisma. Even if you’re not too confident or charismatic, dressing well will make you look the part. Conversely, dressing poorly can put the odds against you. If a guy dresses like a slob and tries to make a good first impression on a girl, he’ll have a much harder time of it. Being well dressed can mean the difference between a good and bad first impression because when we first meet people, the first thing we take in is their appearance. If you are well dressed, you’ll be starting off on the right foot with every first impression.
4. Be Well Groomed
This one is very much related to being well dressed, but is just as important. It is important to shower daily, brush your teeth twice daily, and wear clothes that are clean and unwrinkled. These are the very basics, but there are many other ways you can be even more well groomed.
- Use facial wash instead of soap
- Use lotion and lip moisturizers when the weather is cold and dry
- Keep your finger and toe nails clean and neatly trimmed
- Make sure your facial hair is in order
- Whiten your teeth
- Trim unruly nose, chest, neck, and back hair
It may seem like these little things might not make a big difference, but women do notice. No girl wants to date or kiss a slob.
5. Show Her Your Good Conversation Skills
If a guy meets a girl for the first time and struggles to keep a conversation going, he will have no chance of dating her later on. Dating is a one-on-one activity that puts all of the responsibility on you and the girl you’re dating. That means if your conversation skills are lacking, you better improve them in order to have more successful dates. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to improve your conversation skills with the opposite sex.
