Dating Tips: The
First Impression Matters
|Ever had a love
at first sight encounter? Totally captured by her beauty the
first time you laid your eyes on her? Having sleepless nights
thinking about her? That first impression she left with you was
sure astonishing wasn’t it?
The first impression you give plays a very important part in the
blooming of a love relationship. It determines the ever
possibility of a development of the relationship. Would you fall
in love with someone whom you don’t have any good impression at
all? The chances are, if you have a bad impression of someone,
it is very likely that the more you see him the more you will
dislike him. It is very hard to change one’s thinking once it is
set in his mind. It will need a lot of time and regular
communication between both to break down that wall. So even if
you can’t impress that special someone the very first time, make
sure you will not displease him or her. You can still work on
your chances at a later time.
How can you impress someone? Well, you may be the kindest soul,
so helpful; caring, fun loving and easy going whom all your
friends enjoy your presence. But does that someone know? No, if
there are no chances of both of you going out together, going
out on a date, there’s no way he or she will ever get to know
you more. You have got to make that someone notice you, make
your presence be known. You got to first impress him or her!
Very naturally, humans tend to make judgment of another just by
their very first acquaintance with the person. Decisions were
made almost at that very moment of your job interview? Your
physical appearance, the way you talk, all your little behaviors
you show, will decide what kind of a person you are to them and
this impression is going to be set in their mind unless some
thing or someone changes it.
So what can you do? What should you take note of? First of all,
your appearance of course. Your physical appearance is the very
the first thing that catches a person’s eyes. Put on your very
best look! But do however dress appropriately. If you are going
for a ball, you will not go in your jeans and tee and if you are
going for a barbeque, for heaven’s sake, please don’t go in your
tuxedo or suits. Other than your physical appearance, you have
to also be careful with all your little actions, the way you
speak, the way you eat, the way you look at others etc.
Look for chance to strike a conversation with that someone. If
not a personal one, a little group conversation will be good.
Try to participate in the conversation, getting his or her
attention. Look into the eyes, drop him or her a nice warm
smile. Let that someone know that his or her presence is felt,
being felt by you. A smile with the right eye contact at the
right timing can sometimes works wonder than to words. But
please, keep the conversations entertaining. If you are bad with
jokes, don’t try it! Don’t risk making yourself a clown.
For guys, show your gentlemanliness, hold the door for her,
offer seat to her; offer her a ride home etc. But remember, be
natural, take things slowly, don’t overdo it and scare her off
the very first time.
For girls? Well, you always got a little more privilege. Just be
sure not to make yourself look unfriendly. Smile, look him in
the eyes and drop him a nice little sweet smile of yours. Do you
know that your smile is enough to melt a man’s heart?
Well all these little things count, your little efforts will pay
off. Nonetheless, it’s always good to leave people with a good
impression of yourself rather than a bad one, isn’t it?
