The BIGGEST mistake while trying to get a date

A lot of guys tend to ask... "How do I approach that girl? She's just so drop dead gorgeous?" "What if she laughs at me when I talk to her?" From there on... I realise the BIGGEST mistake while trying to get a date is:-

  • Trying so darn hard to make things perfect. As long as you are good enough for her... that'll do it.
  • Don't worry you'll make a fool of yourself. You probably will if it is your first time approaching your dream girl.
  • The key to it is to actually take ACTION. Why did you think Darren Hayes wrote the song "Crash and Burn" for?
  • Learn from your mistakes and you'll only get better.

I understand we only have one shot at making a first impression and she means the world to you but until you practise... you'll never really be good at it.Personally, my record was getting a date from a perfect stranger in seven minutes. How I did it? I got rejected from a girl I once adored. Here's probabya few things that could be done to enhance one's skill:

  • Learn to make eye contact with strangers. You can try it with guys first if you are too shy.
  • Next... try and learn to smile at them. This is important. If you are going to smile like a serial rapist... you are going to scare her away.
  • Flirt with women you talk to casually (even if you don't intend to bag them).
  • Compliment the unattractive. It's easier to get a positive feedback from them.
  • Don't bother complimenting hot looking girls. They already know it. Instead try teasing them.

I hope it'll work out for you guys as it has worked out for me. Let me know how you guys are doing. Stop worrying... start dating. *winks*

I admit, most of your advice makes sense. However deep down I'm a very nice guy. I couldn't ever bring myself to insult another girl, even in a teasing or playful way.

Now I have learned that confidence is key, and being assertive and taking the lead is also important. I don't think I need much else to maintain a relationship I get in, I just need to practice more as to how to actually get into one.
