All guys want to impress the woman you’re interested in, because it means you get to hook up. However, there’s such a thing as trying too hard, and also trying too little. You have to fall somewhere in the middle, or else you’ll never get what you want. Age helps in this regard. When we were younger and frat age, we didn’t know how to approach a woman except with a beer and a keg. Nowadays, we’re smooth and know what women want. As adults, women want a lot, as you already know. Specifically, they want a guy who’s secure and carries himself with an air of confidence. Keeping it balanced is easy if you have some of the basics down, and we’re here to help you.
Behavior on Dates
When you’re on a date with a potential fling, you have to realize how every gesture comes off. The woman you’re with is going to be scrutinizing everything you do, especially if it’s a first date. Play it cool, and just know what your plan is. If you’re out to dinner, don’t order something super expensive, but don’t be cheap. The ideal scenario would be that you defer to the server and ask for a recommendation. This takes the pressure off you to make a decision, and puts the emphasis on the fact that you are willing to take suggestions to obtain the best that the place has to offer. This will impress women. An example of how you’d go too far in either direction would be if you ordered the most expensive thing on the menu, or if you ignored it altogether.
Gifts for Her
This is another awkward situation, but one that’s more ambiguous. If you’re hooking up with a woman, you have no long-term interest, and you’re not even friends, you’re not going to be taking her along to parties. However, sometimes, you just need a date, and if you get along with your fling, why not take advantage of it? This is all well and good, but you have to be careful about the message you’re sending. Don’t take your fling to a black tie event, for example, because it’s too fancy. The best way to be chill about a special event is to invite your fling to low key ones, like office parties or informal gatherings.
