You have one chance and you don’t want to collapse it. What to do to “seal the deal” on a perfect date? Here are a few things to remember to make sure your princess rides off with you into the sunset of happily ever after.
Mind over muscle.
Most dating tips say a lot about good grooming and sprucing up nicely for your special evening. And, good heavens, you better believe them, brush your teeth, and comb your hair, put deodorant and all that stuff. But don’t forget that when you’re on the actual date, the girl you’re trying to impress will be more attentive in your mind than your abs muscles (granted she’s the right kind of girl). So brush up on your intellect too. Make sure you let her know just how well-informed and dogmatic you are about current events and socio-political issues. Trust me; nothing is sexier than a nice-looking man who can think too.
It’s all about the atmosphere.
Girls don’t really like being brought to a bar on the first date. First dates tend to be obstinate so try to ease her discomfort by doing something casual and fun. Go to a coffee shop or an art exhibit. Have a picnic in the park with your dogs. Go to the arcade or play paint ball or laser tag. Go wall-climbing. These types of activities will give you ample opportunity to bond, talk and laugh.
The art of chivalrous love.
It cannot be hassled enough. Girls appreciate it when a guy opens doors for them, finds them a seat and makes sure they are comfortable and safe at all times. It’s not at all a “damsel in distress” thing, but a way in which a girl can tell early on if a guy will be delicate to her feelings or not. Guys who are gentlemanly in the way they act unconsciously send a message to girls saying: “We will not intentionally hurt you in any way. We will not humiliate you in front of other people. We will be careful with you.” A man who tries his best not to tread on his lady’s toes will try his best not to tread on her heart.
Dating can be such perilous business at times. But with these tips, you’ll be ready to catch your lady love’s heart, make her swoon and realize that it’s you she’s been waiting for all her life. So, go get her, tiger. And make sure that you seal the deal on her affections. Who knows? You might just get a fairy tale kiss and that famous happy ending.
