The Gentlemen’s Curb
It’s the Gentlemen’s Curb a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way. We are back to share some information with you! Dating is daunting for anyone. Women and men alike get flustered at the idea of the first evening with a potential partner. What if you both have nothing to talk about? What if you make idiots of yourselves? In truth, though, there’s going to come a day when you have to face up to the dating doldrums. Love could enrich your days more than you’d imagine. But, you won’t get there unless you go through with that first evening.
The good news is, as with many situations, getting this right is often about confidence. Believe you can do this, and the chances are you’ll impress. Most women love a confident man. Of course, for the most part, confidence comes from nothing more than believing in yourself. But, we’ve also got some pointers to consider which could take your self-belief to new levels. Read on to find out what they are.
Comfortable in your dress
There’s a first date temptation to dress out of your comfort zone. After all, you want her to see you’ve made an effort. As such, you may step away from go-to outfits for something more upmarket. And, there’s nothing wrong with that as long as you feel comfortable. But, if you wear something which doesn’t suit your personality, your date is sure to notice. What’s more, you’ll find it harder to act confidently in a suit which swamps your character. Instead, opt for a happy medium. Wear something smart, but pair that shirt with a comfortable sweater, or a pair of your favorite shoes. The more comfortable you feel, the better position you’ll be in to make the right impression.
Confident in your conversation
As can be seen from this article about questions to ask a girl so she finds you attractive, confidence is also essential to the conversation. If you start to doubt yourself or overthink things, awkward silence will follow. Instead, be confident. Know what you want to ask, and have a few go-to conversation starters to fall back on in an emergency. Remember, too, that your date will have things she wants to ask you as well. As such, you don’t need to put pressure on yourself to fill every second. Confidence is good, but if you don’t let her get a word in edgeways, you won’t get a second date.
Concentrate how you hold your body
No one likes to feel judged. But, the very nature of a first date means that your appearance will come into things. And, that means body language, too. As such, you should practice confidence here, as well. If you’re hunched up or turned away, your date might not warm to you. She’ll feel as though you’re holding back or aren’t interested. Instead, practice open body language. Lean forward to show interest, and keep your hands at your sides instead of using them to block yourself. If all goes well, your date will mirror your body language, and lean towards you, too. And, you know what that means…
