First Date Advice for Women


First Date Advice for Women
Going on a first date? Get some great first date advice for guaranteed success.

If you are getting ready to go on a first date, or have already had a few that have been a bit of a disaster; you need to know some great first date advice. The time women take to prepare for their first dates, either takes several nerve-wracking days, a few hours before that first date, or minutes before without a second thought. Let’s remember that the first date is not a major life event. Statistically, there is a high likelihood this person is not going to be the “love” of your life. From my experience, and from the thousands of singles that have shared their dating stories with me, the avid dater in search of a “keeper” will go on many first dates!

Tip 1 – Have Fun & Show Off That Smile: The first rule of thumb is to always have a positive attitude and have fun in every situation. Smiles are contagious, and men often comment about a woman’s smile. It is a very attractive quality for men, because it all boils down to what makes him feel good. Knowing that a smile is important ladies I would do whatever I could to highlight and showcase that beautiful smile. Great oral hygiene is a must. And I would absolutely recommend teeth whitening especially for women that smoke. There is nothing less attractive than staring into the mouth and discolored teeth of a person sitting across from you wondering what it’s like to kiss you.

Tip 2 – Show Confidence: All of our dating research describes the importance of feeling good about yourself and being confident and comfortable in the dating arena. You can build confidence by working on the skills and areas about you that you need to improve. Maybe you are a bit shy and need to work on better communication skills and asking more questions. It could be that you TALK TOO MUCH and have to learn to be quiet and avoid interrupting. As a woman that’s used to doing a lot of talking and full of ideas it’s something that I am constantly working on! Genuinely feel good about self means that you are doing all the things that make YOU feel good and you can’t be attractive to a man when you’re own self-worth needs improvement.
