  5. If you do step 3 and 4 well, she will be the one who will make the next move. If she comes to you for advice, be firm and confident in letting her know what you want but that you trust her judgement. That confidence in yourself will be the clincher that will make her choose you.

How to date a girl for the first time

Dating can be somewhat scary, no matter your experience or who you are. There is nothing off about prepping yourself before diving in. Here is what you need to bear in mind as you prepare to date a girl for the first time:

  1. Start your conversations with something interesting and it’ll really help you set the right tone for the rest of your conversation. When in doubt or nervous, use humour to lighten the mood. Say or do something funny or interesting but keep it respectful.
  2. Ladies like men who are confident. Even if you are not a naturally confident person, you can learn to project that image while you work on the real thing. For example, rather than vaguely asking if she’d like to do something, sometime make a suggestion like “we should head to that bar next Friday, I hear that sangria is amazing”. That’s so much better than “if you’re free sometime and wanted to hang out maybe we can go do something”.
  3. Focusing on common interests help you to create build trust and comfort.
  4. Be honest to her as there’s a level of trust that has to be established. The best way to do this is to be open with her and take a genuine interest in who she is. If you can both nail these, trust and comfort will naturally start to build since you’re being genuine showing her who you are and actually caring about what she’s into.
  5. Remember she’s actually a real person and thus is probably as nervous as you are. Make her feel more at ease by regularly complimenting her.
