Sometimes it’s the smallest thing that makes a lasting impression with women. A smart comment or a couple of small gestures can really impress a woman, while an offensive remark or a display of carelessness can utterly doom your chances. This list of habits and behaviors could make the difference between getting her number and getting a dirty look.
1. Be a gentleman
We should all strive to be gentlemen at all times; however, many men today shy away from it, attempting to respect a woman’s space and equality. Believe it or not, there are still plenty of women who still appreciate chivalry and being treated like a lady, and being a gentleman when you are in the presence of a lady shows her that you are attentive, respectful and well-mannered.
2. Maintain eye contact
It can be tempting to look a beautiful woman up and down, and the more beautiful she is, the harder it is to concentrate on the conversation with her. Just remember, if she catches you staring at her cleavage when she’s telling you how much her dad means to her, you’ll look like a creep.
3. Giving sincere compliments
Complimenting women is a skill all men need to master to be successful with the ladies. Women can sense when a compliment is not sincere, and this same insincerity along with some guys having hidden agendas are the reasons why they find compliments so repulsive. To give a compliment the right way, the most important thing to be sincere and remember that is not what you say, but how you say it–what you can observe about her and the setting she is in. Compliment woman more on her character rather than her appearance and don’t try to find something for the sake of being complimentary; that feels false.
4. Socialize with her friends
And one of the things that allows a woman to measure a guy’s potential as a partner is his ability to fit into her social network. Women are attracted to likable, social, charming men, the kind of guys their friends and families will love. So, engage in conversation with her friends even as you’re working your magic on her. Impress them and you’ll impress her and remember–the more you make a woman feel special, the more positive her conversations about you will be with her girlfriends.
5. Ignore your cell phone
Guys, regularly answering cell phone calls (especially from other women) while you are out together with your lady is a big no-no. When you’re talking to a woman, letting her see you silence your phone or turn it off completely shows her that she has your undivided attention. Your outside communications during a date should be limited only to emergencies.
6. Ask open-ended questions
Just about every woman likes to talk about herself; after all, it’s a subject on which she has a lot of expertise. Open-ended questions are essential for making the conversation flow. Asking her questions about her family and her favorite things will allow her to open up and feel comfortable, while simultaneously showing her that you’re interested in more than just her looks.
7. Be funny
Women love a guy that will make them laugh spontaneously and keep a smile on their faces, and being funny and being able to make a woman laugh is something that will get you farther with her than just being good looking. After all, when looks fade and you begin aging, all you’ll have left is conversation.
8. Always leave her wanting more
The majority of guys give away all the surprises and all the interesting facts about themselves way too soon. You have to leave women wanting more, and by doing things like limiting your phone conversations, leaving just as the conversation or kissing is getting good, and saying you’ve gotta go meet with your friends. By being a challenge, an interested woman will begin making calls and suggestions to see you again and will make her intentions more obvious as time goes by.
9. Show her you are passionate about life
A man who can show a woman he’s passionate about things in life, from his job to the bedroom, is very attractive.
10. Take personal responsibility
Take personal responsibility for yourself, your thoughts and your situation. Learn to see how the choices you’ve made have led you to where you are and never be a victim.
