A first impression happens within the first thirty seconds of your date. Women size you up instantly based on what you look like, and they use that assessment to decide whether they want to get to know you.
In fact, research says that you can literally increase the odds of your dating success 55% just by paying attention to the way your present yourself with the clothes you wear, the attitude you have and the body language you demonstrate.
Here are 3 easy tips to a great first impression.
Dress To Impress
Clothes should be fitted, youthful and modern. It’s important that your style is up-to-date and not reminiscent of decades past. Don’t look like you did when you were just starting out in your favorite oversized football jerseys.
Women need men to be present. Listen when she speaks and make eye contact. Avoid scanning the room while she talks, and align your body with hers so she knows you’re paying attention. A great way to show her you’re listening is to bring up something she says later on in conversation.
Have A Strong Alpha Body Language
Body language is part of your presentation so when you become aware of your body, you can then take action to make sure it is working for you and not against you! Women cannot resist a strong presence from a man, so go in with confidence. Open doors, pull out her chair and avoid nervous behaviors like biting the nails and fidgeting.
