When on a date with a woman, it’s always best to act like a gentleman and put your best self on display. Here are 6 tips on how to become the perfect gentleman and even your chances for successful dating.

Open the Restaurant Door and Let Her Go in First

This is a small and nice gesture which shows basic respect for the woman you’re dating. Women take this as a positive sign, which affects the rest of the date.

Take an Interest by Asking Her Questions About Herself

A woman prefers to feel noticed by the man she’s dating and not spend all of her time listening to him talk about himself. Ask simple questions and try not to turn it into an investigation where you ask a question and she answers. The conversation should flow with you both engaging in it. It is the best way to get to know each other.

Be Yourself

Trust is always a must and nobody likes to feel fooled. Be the same person online as you are offline and don’t be afraid to open up about who you are, what you believe in, your views on life and love, and so on. Women are pleasantly surprised when a man stands behind what he portrays himself to be.

Don’t Over Compliment, It Might Seem Fake

Being complimented by someone you’re on a date with is an ego booster, no doubt. Most women, if not all, enjoy occasional words of tribute as they are usually signs of interest of the man they’re with. However, when complimenting goes overboard, it slightly loses its authenticity, so keep it up to a certain extent.

Don’t Talk About Your Exes

Talking about former relationships on a first date is a big no no. No woman wants to hear about a man’s last fling or ex-girlfriend, and would rather have him focus on her. You have a chance to get acquainted with someone new, so leave the past where it belongs… in the past.

Don’t Wait 3 Days to Call Her

This one is completely a myth made-up by men. Most women expect a man to call or at least text within 2 days after the first date. 3 days might be a bit too late and usually gives a woman the false notion that the man is not interested.
