1. Know Where The Date is Taking Place

When asking a woman out on a date, it is a good idea to know where you want to go and what is appropriate. Never, I repeat never, let this be a response: “I don’t know, where do you wanna go?” or “I don’t know, whatever you want to do.” This can add an awkward tension before you’ve even planned the location. Also, it helps to be competent and confident of the location you have chosen. Make sure you know what her like and dislikes are. For example, a football game is completely inappropriate unless she is a fan as well. Dinner dates are pretty standard for a first date; not much can go wrong there. Have the place, date and time already figured out before hand.

2. Dress to Impress

Well, this one is obvious but, nonetheless, an important topic to be stressed. Unless you are going to a really fancy place, a suit and tie is not necessary. You want to dress in a way that speaks formal yet casual. Hygiene is very important and leaves a lasting impression. Take the extra time to achieve a kempt and fresh look.

3. Chivalry is Memorable

Leave a lasting impression of a true gentleman. Open the car door, restaurant doors and pull out her seat. Make her feel as if she is queen.

4. Be Attentive & Be Confident

Being attentive makes another lasting impression. Being a great listener is a favorable quality in a man that most women want. Be attentive, listen and smile. Don’t be shy or mumble. Speak up. Confidence looks good on a man and will be what keeps her interested.

5. Take the Bill!

For crying out loud, take the bill, man. When the bill comes don’t hesitate to pick it up. It’s also a good idea to keep the conversation going, make paying for the bill seem like no biggie. That is why paying by card is helpful. It also makes it seems like you are more interested in the conversation.

6. Say Goodnight Appropriately

Again, open the door to let her out, then communicate that you enjoyed the date and the hint of the possibility of one in the future. Don’t let the evening end abruptly and awkwardly. Be intentional about saying goodbye; ask for a hug, or a kiss on the cheek. Don’t leave her standing there awkwardly at the end of the night.
