The key is to feel attractive in your outfit - it will naturally give you more confidence, which is a huge turn-on for most people.
2) Show Up Early to 'Warm Up' Athletes don't jump into a game without warming up.
It's so important, that we've dedicated an entire page to it.
Here's the mistake that 90% of guys will make on a speed date.
But it's especially intolerable on a first encounter, because it's unlikely to improve with time.
Forget that hokum about "Opposites attract." You want to find a person who's as similar to you as possible.
So trust your instincts; they'll tell you, on the spot, whether the other person lights you up or not.
Daters who are 50 and older tend to be less impulsive — and that's a good thing.
Maintain eye contact — and make it clear that you expect the truth, not a sanitized version of it.But watch out for those jitters — they can make you feel so anxious that you project your own hopes on to this new person, rather than noticing his or her true nature. Ask questions about the issues that matter most to you. On a date not too long ago, I worried I'd been hit by lightning. That view discounts the possibility of magic — an undeniable resonance that a man and woman feel for each other, often right from the start. All in all it was not too different from being back in 7th grade again, summoning the gumption to ask Nancy Morris to dance for the very first time.Conversely, if the women see you smiling and laughing with other people before the event, they'll get the impression that you're a confident person who is easy to talk to.This will put you at an advantage before even going on a single date! This is the key element that will set yourself apart from the other speed daters.
We recommend you dress in business-casual attire - something that looks sharp, but isn't too formal.
