#6 Avoid being too cliché. It’s all good and well being on a date with someone who’s thoughtful. But try and avoid being too cheesy with over-romanticised one-liners or cliché gestures, like pulling her chair out for her or always referring to the waiter as “Garçon” *not joking, this happened to me once*. Be genuine and caring, but don’t overdo it.
#7 Don’t overbrag. Even if you live a super impressive life, don’t let your ego get the best of you, especially if you’re trying to impress a girl on the first date. There’s nothing worse than being on a date with a dude who won’t shut up about how amazing he is, how much money he makes, or how many women want to sleep with him. Humility is a desirable quality, so make sure she sees you have it in spades.
#8 Laughter is the best medicine. Everyone loves to feel like they connect on a certain level when it comes to humor, so laughing at her jokes goes a long way. Just make sure not to go overboard. It comes across as desperate and makes her feel like you’re fake.
