When you are dating someone, it can sometimes seem difficult to make a great impression on them. Sometimes, it can be hard to know what to say and how to act around your international date. However, there are a few simple dos and don’ts for making a great impression on your international date.
Have a Sense of Humor
Most women like men who can make them laugh. This does not mean that you have to act like a comedian and tell her jokes. It just means that you have to have a sense of humor, and keep a casual tone to your date. Your date wants to have a good time. Women like to be charmed and amused. Men who are too serious, and take themselves to seriously, don’t do particularly well on dates.
Leaving your date waiting is a big dating faux pas, especially if you are in the early stages of dating. Try to always meet your date on time. If you don’t, she may think that you don’t respect her time or that you are just not that interested in her. If you make a date, make sure that you leave early enough so that you get there on time. If you do happen to be late, make sure that you have a good reason, and that you don’t make being late a regular occurrence.
Pay Attention to your International Date
If you want to make a great impression on your date, it is highly important that you focus all of your attention on your international date. If you are looking around a lot or if you look distracted, she won’t be impressed. She will either think that you aren’t interested in her, or she may even think that you are looking at other women. When you are on your date try to keep all of your attention on your date. Look at her and make eye contact with her. Make the effort to really listen to what she has to say, and she will appreciate it.
Work on your Conversational Skills
Unfortunately, many men on dates spend so much time focusing on their date, that they don’t really say much themselves. When you are with your international date, make sure that you make conversation with her. She shouldn’t have to do all of the talking. It’s a good idea to ask her about her day or talk about something that you are currently doing, such as the food that you are eating at a restaurant. Try to ask her about her interests, and if you have talked on the phone and online a lot, or if you have been on a few dates together before, then talk about your past experiences together. This will help you to avoid any awkward silences on dates. Always remember, however, that on dates you shouldn’t constantly talk about yourself. Ask her questions and make the effort to make conversation with her.
Give your International Date Specific Compliments
When you and your international date are together, make sure that you compliment her. Many men want to compliment women, but they often use generic compliments like “you look wonderful” and while these are nice to hear, they are too generic. She has probably heard these kinds of compliments many times before. Try to be creative with your compliments and give her more specific compliments. If you like her outfit, tell her that her outfit looks great. Always keep compliments classy and avoid anything that is overtly sexual in nature.
