This could be the nth time that you are hearing about the secret formulas for a successful dating. But do you know that these snippets could make or break any relationship? Play your cards right and make your dating a big hit! Be fresh : Women are finicky about cleanliness and hygiene; so make sure that you have a good bath and grooming before meeting your girl. Unshaven face and stinking clothes might prove a dampener. Girls fancy well groomed men and bad breath and body odor are some of the things that they loathe the most. So leave no stone unturned in sporting a trim and prim look. Go by the clock: Turning up late for a date could be nightmarish to say the least. This might result in double trouble; not only will she brand you as undependable but she will also be irritated for waiting too long. Not a very pleasing note to start your date with anyway! Women are (in) famous for being late comers but they do not expect you to be in the same league. If you have to pick her up from her home make sure that you are bang on time or to be on the safer side 5 minutes early. But not too early guys, as they will only be half made up! Be well poised: Each and every move of yours will leave an imprint in your girl. Make sure that you are refined in your behavior; keep the door open for her and let her in first. Remember, women are swept off their feet by gentlemanly behavior. Accolades could work magic: Any women would love to hear great compliments from her lover. So keep showering the choicest compliments that would pop her up to cloud nine. This is important as she feels that you are indeed fascinated towards her. Be attentive: Talk and let talk should be the mantra in dating. Do not cut short her talk or do all the talking. You can very well ask her about everything you wanted to know from her but what is important is to give her a patient hearing. Girls love to converse to a man who shows keenness in her talks. Set up a plan: Be prepared with all the questions and topics of conversation so that you do not end up staring at each other with nothing to talk about. Think of any possible queries from her side and be ready with an answer. A drink or a movie could add a charm and lots of fresh ideas to build your day. Who will play the banker? This could be a tricky situation as women like to pay very often. However it is better that you offer to make the payment and if she still remains adamant, you can ask her whether you can at any rate pay for half the bill. The Goodnight Kiss : Nearly every woman would like to kiss after a date but some would not think it as a great idea. So test the waters by closely observing their movements and if you think it is Ok then make your move. But sex won't be a good idea at the first date; but not always; as some girls might want it. I'll give you a call: This can very well be your parting shot after the date but only if you wish to see her again. Collect her number and tell her that she can expect your call. But if you do not intend to carry on just say good bye and wish her luck before parting. However makes sure to let her know if you are interested.
