Ladies, I am a firm believer that you should always put your true, best self forward. You never know when a casual encounter is going to turn into something more – and no matter what happens, the first impression always outlasts the second. Second chances are a luxury, my friends, so make sure your answer to “how did you meet?” is a story you don’t mind retelling. Here’s my advice.
Engage, engage, engage
Take it from me, before a word is even spoken, watch your body language and facial expression! You want to put across openness and interest in this new guy. Adopt an approachable stance, make eye contact and try to use his name at least once in the conversation. It means way more than you know (and will help you remember it in the future, too).
Less is more
Everybody loves a good listener, so save most of your hilarious anecdotes for later. Making people comfortable enough to share freely about themselves is a wonderful quality. For extra points, ask a thoughtful follow up question.
Show who you really are
Nobody’s perfect. Don’t be afraid to show your flaws and be your true self – geeky, freaky — it’s all good, if he’s right for you.
Oh, and a spritz or two of Curve Appeal won’t hurt. That amazing scent is sure to draw him in!
Till next time,
