How To Make A Good First Impression On A First Date

How to make a good first impression on a first date:

Making a good first impression on your first date can be the difference between getting a second date, getting laid, or nothing at all.

Even if you're a really cool guy, if you show up with a big chunk of spinach in your teeth, chances are it's not going to go anywhere, because nobody wants to toss that salad.

If you want to make the best first impression possible, follow this guide:

How To Make A Good First Impression On A First Date

Here are some things you should do and not do to make a really good impression.

Some of these things apply to the first contact as soon as you lay eyes on her when you go to meet her for that date, and other things also apply to the date itself because that whole first date is actually a first impression.

#1. Be Well Groomed

If you have nose hair, ear hair, or other weird hairs, it's time to take a trimmer and take care of that.

That counts for other hygiene too, because the best way to ruin a first impression is by showing up and not being well groomed.

#2. Use Clean Clothing

It should go without saying, but you shouldn't be showing up with some soup on your shirt, dirty shoes, dirty pants, work pants, or anything like that.

#3. Be Confident

If you don't feel that confident, just fake it until you make it because that's all you're going to have.

Confidence goes a long way to making the right first impression when going out with a woman.

#4. Lead The Date

Leading is actually a great way to show confidence. Basically, you don't want to be insecure about your decisions regarding where to take your date and what to do.

Don't be a bench sitter when the time comes to make a decision.

#5. Don't Act Like A Pushover

Nobody likes a pushover.

It doesn't matter how hard you try to please somebody, if you're acting like a pushover to try to please them, you'll most likely do the opposite and lose all respect as well.

#6. Avoid Arguments

Speak your mind, but avoid arguments.

You don't have to hold back your opinion and act like you agree with everything she says.

Obviously, avoid arguments because that's going to make a bad impression too, but you don't have to hold your tongue on everything and act like a yes man.

#7. Smile When You Greet Her

As soon as you show up, you shouldn't have a resting bitch face or some kind of scary face or looking at the ground or anything like that.

You should have a smile and greet her enthusiastically.

#8. Cut It Short

You should be the first one to call quits on the date. This shows that you have other things going on and that you're not a clinger, you're not needy, you don't have to hang around her for hours and hours.

So cut the date short, about an hour or so, say: "Hey, it's been nice chatting, but I gotta get going. I got a few things to do".

#9. Talk About Her

After all, you're there to get to know her. Talk about her, get her to open up and share about herself.

This is a really good way to make a connection verbally, because people like talking with themselves.

Ironically, they'll actually like you more if you let them talk about themselves.

#10. Use A Strong Voice

This is going to be something you're going to want to do right when you greet her, along with that smile.

When you say hi, hello, or whatever you want to use, make sure you have a strong voice and you project that voice at her.

All of these things together will go a long way to make a great first impression. Chances are you'll increase your odds of getting a second date or even taking her home, if that was your plan.


Now, here are some common questions guys have about first date impressions:

How can I make my first date impression attractive?

To make your first date impression attractive, make sure you:

show up well groomed, have a good shower, use deodorant, do your hair, don't show up with a bird's nest on top of your head, and wear your best jacket and shoes, depending on the weather.

How do I impress on a first date?

To impress a girl on a first date, really the best thing to do is not try to impress her at all.

By trying too hard, you're going to come across as a try hard, which shows a lot of insecurity.

Instead, focus on getting to know her. Stop thinking about yourself and being self-conscious. Get her to talk about herself and dig deeper into it.

Don't just talk about superficial things, get her to talk about something that's actually important to her.
