The Secret To Having A Great Date
Wouldn’t we all like to know what the secret is to a great date?
Well, there is a secret ingredient that is crucial for a great date and it’s so simple it will probably shock you. That secret is paying attention.
It’s so simple that you were probably expecting something else, something that is a bit more dramatic but paying attention to your date is the key.
Think about this for a moment. You are on a date with a beautiful man or woman but your head is all over the place. You’re thinking about work. You’re thinking about your boss. You’re thinking about when you are going to go on your next holiday.
All of these things mean you are not present in the moment, therefore, you cannot fully enjoy the moment you are in now. If you are not even paying attention to the moment then your date is going to sense this, they will know something is up, and it’s not going to lead to any sort of chemistry.
So what is the solution?
Well, the solution is to simply pay attention to what’s happening. The solution is to get out of your head and start focusing on what is happening right now.
In fact, paying attention has been found to be one of the most attractive traits to display, particularly for men. When you are paying attention you are going to be fully present in the moment. You are going to be listening to what you date is saying.
Think about it this way. Would you find it more attractive if a date was listening to you or if you could tell they were mentally somewhere else?
Of course, you will find it more attractive if they’re listening to you. So pay attention and be fully present in your future dates. Your date is will be impressed if you can demonstrate solid listening skills, show empathy, and create a connection.
