The old aphorism tells us that you can never get a second chance to make a first impression and both every day experiences and science testify to this truth. First impressions are powerful, quick, and lasting, which is why it’s so important to do everything you can to make a good one. A great first impression on a woman can lead to a second, third, fourth, and even fifth date. Below are visual clues a woman immediately notices and how you can get it right.
A greeting is the first opportunity to present yourself the way you want to be seen. This really matters a lot; your greetings should only need a few words and gestures to make a good first impression. Make sure you’re polite in your greeting and take into consideration her feelings; no woman wants to date someone who’s impolite. If you are rude, arrogant, or inconsiderate, then you will definitely leave a bad impression on her. Also your handshake eye contact and smile all contribute. Look her in the eye without seeming creepy, smile warmly, and repeat your name (to help her remember it). And never underestimate the power of a firm handshake.
No matter how well-mannered you are, funny and smart ladies will still base the majority of their opinion on the way you dress and look. Focus on managing your image is one way to ensure a positive first impression as well as achieving your aim for a second date. Ladies make snap judgments based on appearance so make sure your outfit is nice and you smell good. Wear something you feel good, wear an outfit that is clean and fits you well. But, most importantly be comfortable, your hair also says a lot about you. Do full-mirror scans before you leave your house to save you from little mistakes in your first date!
Your vocal inflections
Making a good first impression requires you to be comfortable and confident in your own words. Ladies respond highly to your aural attractiveness. Never let the lady you’re talking to rush you to the end of any sentence. Learn to enunciate clearly but not like you’re on stage acting. You can ask a close friend to play the role and search for ways to change your verbal communication and create an improved first impression. Use the inflections to accentuate a story or sentence so it sounds more incredible than it.
There’s no point in making a good impression if it’s the one that you can’t maintain or if it is one that isn’t true to you because first impressions are not only made quickly but are also hard to shake and they’re largely based on who you really are. Working on your first impression does not mean being fake but first, improve your mental strength and then learn how to stage your true self in the best possible light. So do your best to prepare and present your best self and make sure it’s just that you.
