#9 Show her chivalry’s not dead. Being a gentleman doesn’t mean showing up in a three-piece suit and opening doors for her everywhere you go. It just means being polite, kind, not interrupting when she’s talking, and showing her your kind-hearted and generous side. The way you treat others is what you get back, so if you’re a sweetheart she’ll reciprocate.
#10 DON’T mention your ex. This is a big first date red flag when it comes to knowing how to impress a girl on a first date. There’s no reason to mention your ex in any context on a first date, even if it’s to tell your date you’re still friends.
It just comes across like you’re comparing her to your ex, or that you’re not over your former relationship. And if your date asks about her, mention it briefly and honestly, and then move onto another topic.
#11 Make decisions. Take control and make suggestions. Don’t wait for her to make all the moves. Maybe visit that new trendy restaurant, or bring her to your favorite spot in the city and show her around. Don’t be indecisive and respond to everything with “I don’t know, what do you want?”. People gravitate toward confidence, so don’t be subdued.
