Want to impress a guy? Don’t overthink it because we really don’t ask for much. Here’s what to do on your next date to set his heart aflutter.


1. Be entertained by us


Even if we aren’t entertaining at all. Whether we’re delivering a horrible approximation of a Russell Peters bit, or discussing our work in minute detail that makes you want to prop your eyelids open with toothpicks, act like it’s a Morgan Freeman narration. 


2. Admit you Googled us


Hey, we all do it! Just come straight out and say “Yeah, I Googled you and thought you looked great in your Linkedin profile pic”. A tiny bit of stalker behaviour is flattering. But hold off hanging out outside our homes, staring up at our bedroom windows. That’s just creepy.

3. Show more skin


This should be obvious, but if you’ve got it, flaunt it. Get rid of that shawl which you think makes you look demure – what are you, 90? And be proud baring those legs, shoulders and even a little cleavage. Guys love to show up around town with a woman who’s gorgeous, and knows it.


4. Do that shampoo commercial thing


You know, the one where you wear your hair up, let it down, and do that head toss? Don’t laugh – we think it’s awesome. There’s a reason it pops up in films and commercials all the time. Feel silly doing this? Your date gawking at you should make you feel better.


5. Hold a door open for us


Because sometimes, guys want to be treated like princesses too. Truth.
