Dear boys, while we know that most of you consider girls to be complicated beings, it is far from the truth. You may perceive us as complicated only because our way of thinking is poles apart from yours. It's as simple as that. While we can't expect you to think like a girl, we are here to give you some tips on what we hope from guys when they try to catch our attention or win our hearts. If you have been trying to figure out ways on how to impress girls, then here's a lowdown. Read up.
Before we get to our 101 guide on how to impress girls, let us share a simple fact with you that you must remember. While there are always exceptions, the basic functioning of most girls is that they think with their heart and not the head. Yes, we are exceptionally emotional beings and everything we do is tied to emotions. So sensitivity is the key here.
Dos And Don'ts On How To Impress Girls
Here's listing down tips on how to impress girls:
1. Don't Try Too Hard
Now who doesn't like to make a grand first impression, isn't it? But that doesn't mean you need to flaunt your bank balance, designer clothes and expensive toys to the point that it is annoying. Unless you want to attract a gold digger, you need to focus on striking the right chord. So if you are taking a girl on a date, learn to win her through conversations. It's really the emotional connect that we are looking for.
2. Groom Yourself Well
Being well-groomed always helps. She's not there to judge your fashion choices, but it shows that you make a point to take care of yourself and pay heed to basic hygiene. But no, we are not talking about going overboard with branded clothes with flashy logos. Keep it classy and chic. If you can't make up your mind then stick to well-tailored suits. We love men in formals. Or even all-time favourites like a white shirt and jeans.
3. Don't Go Bragging
A little humility can't hurt. You may think the world of yourself, which is great, but let her discover your awesomeness on her own. Don't go bragging about all your achievements, career graph or luxuries in life. You will of course want to share info but that can always be done in a subtle and modest way.
4. Shut Up And Listen
Love to talk? Well, you can't be the only one doing that. It's important to listen and try and understand what the other person is trying to say. So listen to her and let her share about her life or experiences. This will not only help you learn more about her but also make her feel comfortable with you.
5. Give Her A Compliment
Girls love a little attention. Yes, we do. So when you compliment us, sincerely, it is most welcomed. But cut the cliche and compliment about a genuine quality that you see in the girl. Which means you need to actually make an effort to get to know her. So please do!
6. Take The Lead
Girls love it when boys take the lead and make the effort. Be a planner and come up with suggestions - be it a restaurant to pick for a date night or things to do over the weekend. What we look for in a partner is someone with a sense of direction, who knows what he wants and is involved.
7. Hold The Door Or Not
Now this is tricky but let us try and explain. Gone are the days when girls expected boys to open the door for them or pay their bill. But that's not to say that chivalry has gone out of the window. It's needed but at the right time and the right place. For example, if you happen to be walking ahead of her and you open the door, then please hold it for her or anyone else behind you. On the other hand, if she is about to get in your car, then quit going out of your way to open the door. That's not required. There's a difference.
8. Honesty Is The Best Policy
Last but not the least, please be honest. There's no need to paint false hopes and dreams and have it all come crashing down. Be genuine, be you. You really must try to be a good friend first, before anything else. Let it take its natural course.
So there you go. Impress the girls keeping these pointers in mind.
