Are people meeting the best version of you at dinner?

Are people meeting the best version of you at dinner?

You never get a second chance to make a great first impression. That’s certainly the case when meeting singles for friendship or a potential partner at our dinners. Research shows that within a few seconds, with just a glance, people have judged your level of success.
Within minutes they have even decided about your level of intelligence, trustfulness, worthiness, competence, friendliness and confidence.
Make sure that when someone meets you at dinner, they are seeing you at your best.

What does the way you present yourself say about you?
If you aren’t sure how to assess your own presentation, a great way to help you to think objectively, is to look at people of your own gender and age group (your competition) and also people who could be possible friends or partners. Looking at others is easier to help us clarify our own likes and dislikes.
Think about why you like this trait and why you dislike the traits of others. What is it that attracts you to them or turns you off? Is there something similar you could incorporate into the way you present yourself, or something you could eliminate from the way you are presenting yourself?
This little exercise is useful for the way we present ourselves physically, but also could be used to think about the way we present ourselves in our behaviour and our demeanour.

Remember, when people meet you at dinner, they are deciding if they would like to follow up and request your number to see you again. The way you present yourself at dinner provides them with clues to whether you would make a great friend or partner.
Make sure they didn’t miss out on seeing the very best version of you by looking your very best physically and also by presenting your best behaviour.

Success! A follow up date with her. The secret formula.

Success! A follow up date with her. The secret formula.

How soon should I follow up? Should I Send a quick text? What should I say?

You’ve exchanged number with a lovely woman you met at A table for Six. She has passed her number to you. She will be expecting you to contact her and follow up. What is the best way to do it?

Success! A follow up date with her. The secret formula.

Success! A follow up date with her. The secret formula.

If you would like to improve your chances of a follow up date, call her within three days. If she doesn’t call you back after you have left a phone message, try one more time a few days later. If there is still no response, move on!

When you leave a voice message, let her know you enjoyed meeting her and would like to see her again soon. Don’t just call and hang up without leaving a voice message. That’ s not cool.

If you have a great idea for a follow up date, mention it in your voicemail. Don’t just say something like “Hey, it’s Tim, call me back.”

Women like to hear words of endearment, but not too mushy too soon.
You do have to pursue women, but they are the ones who make the decision.

Your first follow up date should be something special, but not too over the top. Plan something that will give you both an adrenaline rush. That will give you a better chance that she will become emotionally hooked on you. Most women don’t enjoy parachuting out of airplanes, but here are some activities they most probably will enjoy – ice skating, dancing, cycling, motor bike riding, outdoor picnics, boating or indoor amusement park.

Do not plan an overnight date at this stage. It’s too soon and could ruin your chances you may have for a long term relationship. Save that for a little down the track when you have been together for some time.

Woman begins by resisting a man’s advances and ends by blocking his retreat.” ~Oscar Wilde
