How to impress a girl on the first date – 15 things that make all the difference As they say, first impressions count, and this is incredibly true when it comes to dating. You may have already met her in person, or possibly only online, but it’s crucial to get it right when you first properly meet up if you want to keep her interested. If you manage to ace the first one, you almost guarantee she won’t be able to get enough and will want to see you again. It’s just getting over that first hurdle that’s the hardest.
#1 Show up on time. Whether you’re picking her up or meeting her somewhere, make sure to be punctual. No one likes someone who doesn’t bother enough to show up on time. If you’re not there when you say you will be, then don’t be surprised if the rest of the date turns sour.
#2 Dress to impress. If you’re wondering how to impress a girl on the first date, remember that looks aren’t everything, but they do count for something. I’ve been on dates with guys who showed up in sweatpants or flip flops, and it instantly put me off. If you show up looking great, it shows her you think she’s worth putting in the effort.
#3 Be prepared. A first date is kind of like a job interview. Make sure you’re ready for what she may ask you. She wants to know about your background, what your friends are like, what your hobbies are, and what your aspirations are. Rehearse a little beforehand, so you know how to answer any questions she throws at you.
#4 Truly engage with her. Take a genuine interest in her and her life if you want to make a lasting impression. Ask her questions about what she enjoys doing or what her family is like or where she went to school. Really listen to her answers. If you’re not that interested in her, she’ll pick up on it.
#5 Show off your personality. Try to be outgoing, chatty, and push yourself out of your comfort zone. Some of the most awkward dates are when the other person is super shy and hasn’t got much to say from themselves. Don’t make her feel like she intimidates you or else you’ll kill the spark.[nextpage title=”CLICK NEXT TO SEE MORE”]
#6 Avoid being too cliché. It’s all good and well being on a date with someone who’s thoughtful. But try and avoid being too cheesy with over-romanticised one-liners or cliché gestures, like pulling her chair out for her or always referring to the waiter as “Garçon” *not joking, this happened to me once*. Be genuine and caring, but don’t overdo it.
#7 Don’t overbrag. Even if you live a super impressive life, don’t let your ego get the best of you, especially if you’re trying to impress a girl on the first date. There’s nothing worse than being on a date with a dude who won’t shut up about how amazing he is, how much money he makes, or how many women want to sleep with him. Humility is a desirable quality, so make sure she sees you have it in spades.
#8 Laughter is the best medicine. Everyone loves to feel like they connect on a certain level when it comes to humor, so laughing at her jokes goes a long way. Just make sure not to go overboard. It comes across as desperate and makes her feel like you’re fake.
#9 Show her chivalry’s not dead. Being a gentleman doesn’t mean showing up in a three-piece suit and opening doors for her everywhere you go. It just means being polite, kind, not interrupting when she’s talking, and showing her your kind-hearted and generous side. The way you treat others is what you get back, so if you’re a sweetheart she’ll reciprocate.
#10 DON’T mention your ex. This is a big first date red flag when it comes to knowing how to impress a girl on a first date. There’s no reason to mention your ex in any context on a first date, even if it’s to tell your date you’re still friends. It just comes across like you’re comparing her to your ex, or that you’re not over your former relationship. And if your date asks about her, mention it briefly and honestly, and then move onto another topic.[nextpage title=”CLICK NEXT TO SEE MORE”]
#11 Make decisions. Take control and make suggestions. Don’t wait for her to make all the moves. Maybe visit that new trendy restaurant, or bring her to your favorite spot in the city and show her around. Don’t be indecisive and respond to everything with “I don’t know, what do you want?”. People gravitate toward confidence, so don’t be subdued.
#12 Take it slow. If you find halfway through the date that you do really like her and want something more, don’t start being too pushy or acting sleazy. I’ve had many a date that started out great. Then, it spiralled into the guy trying to coerce me back to his place. If you take it slow, chances are she’ll be more interested in getting to know you on a second date.
#13 Don’t sit in silence. Comfortable, temporary pauses aren’t bad, just make sure you don’t sit for extended periods in awkward silence. Be confident and strike up a conversation or share a witty joke to break the ice. It loosens the atmosphere and hopefully makes her smile.

#14 Put your phone away. If you spend most of the night constantly checking your phone, or whatsapping your friends, you completely turn her off. No one likes being on a date with someone who’d rather be on social media than engage with them. Be attentive—update your status once you get home.
#15 Avoid all the first date no-nos. If you want to secure a second date there are certain things you must make sure you go nowhere near. The main ones: don’t be rude to the wait staff, don’t tell sexist jokes, don’t give back-handed compliments, and don’t have poor table manners. These are all things to avoid in general life anyway. Definitely don’t make them a habit when you go on dates.

Son Heung-min becomes top scoring Asian in Champions League history
Tottenham star Son Heung-min has become the top scoring Asian in Champions League history with his quick-fire double against Manchester City.
Spurs went down 1-0 in Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final second leg, with Raheem Sterling scoring City’s fastest ever Champions League goal just three minutes and 51 seconds in the game.
But Tottenham’s South Korean star popped up with goals in the seventh and 10th minutes to give his side the lead.
That lead wouldn’t last long though in a wild first half, with Bernardo Silva levelling the match just a minute after Son’s second and Sterling scoring his second and City’s third 10 minutes after that.
Son, however, had already made history after he scored the game’s only goal in the first leg in London last week.
With 12 goals, Son is now the leading goalscoring Asian in Champions League history, passing former Dynamo Kyiv star Maksim Shatskikh (Uzbekistan) for the record.
It has been another prolific season for Son, with the 26-year-old having now reached 20 goals in all competitions for Spurs this season.
Wednesday’s game saw other records set, with the frantic start setting the mark for the fastest four goals ever scored in a single Champions League match.
In addition, Son and Sterling’s early goals meant Wednesday was the first time in Champions League history that two players have scored two goals in the first 21 minutes of the same game.
4 – Four goals in the opening 11 minutes of Manchester City vs Tottenham is the fastest four goals have ever been scored in a single Champions League match. Bonkers. #MCITOT

He expressed gratitude to “the Deputy Leader and all those who had contributed for this very important Bill.”
Saraki noted that since 1943, nothing has been done in addressing the Police Act as a reform; expressing thanks to the Senate Police Committee. “I want to thank particularly the Police Committee; the Chairman and members, and our colleagues for their contributions and their work in passing this Bill,” Saraki said.

Ex-President, Alan Garcia Commits Suicide To Avoid Arrest Due To Corruption Scandal
Alan Garcia,Peru’s former president died in a hospital in Lima on Wednesday, hours after shooting himself in the head to avoid arrest in connection with a bribery probe, authorities said on Wednesday.
Garcia had been one of nine people a judge had ordered to be arrested on Wednesday for alleged involvement in bribes distributed by Odebrecht, a Brazilian construction company that triggered Latin America’s biggest graft scandal when it admitted in 2016 that it had paid kickbacks to politicians across the region to secure lucrative contracts.
Members of his party announced his death to crowds gathered outside of hospital Casimiro Ulloa, where he suffered three cardiac arrests and underwent emergency surgery.
President Martin Vizcarra said on Twitter that he was “consternated” by Garcia’s death, and sent his condolences to his family members.
Garcia governed as a nationalist from 1985 to 1990 before remaking himself as a free-market proponent and winning another five-year term in 2006.
He had denied wrongdoing involving Odebrecht, and blamed his legal troubles on political persecution.
“Others might sell out, not me,” Garcia said in broadcast comments on Tuesday, repeating a phrase he has used frequently as his political foes became ensnared in the Odebrecht investigation.
Interior Minister Carlos Moran said at a news conference before Garcia died that the former president had told police he needed to call his attorney after they arrived at his home in Lima to arrest him.
“He entered his room and closed the door behind him,” Moran said. “Within a few minutes, a shot from a firearm was heard, and police forcibly entered the room and found Mr. Garcia sitting with a wound in his head.”

Female Corper Dies In Bauchi State NYSC Orientation Camp
According to a report by Independent Nigeria, the tragedy occurred barely four days after the 2019 Batch “A” corps members reported for the three weeks orientation course at the Wailo NYSC camp in Ganjuwa Local Government Area of Bauchi State.
It was gathered that on that fateful morning of April 1, Miss Magdalene had reportedly complained to NYSC officials about her protracted asthma illness and how she would not be fit to attend the ‘morning meditation’ but her complainants fell on deaf ears.
Against her will, she was forced to attend the ‘meditation’ and collapsed a few minutes later. She was immediately attended to by corps member doctors and nurses, but when attempts to resuscitate her were not yielding results, she rushed to ATBUTH to save her life.
Further inquiries from medical doctors at the hospital concerning what could have led to the untimely death of Miss Magdalene had no answers as they were not authorized to speak to anyone about her demise.
It was learned that Miss Magdalene Yohanna, an orphan, sponsored her education throughout her higher institution. She has been buried at her home town in Kaduna amidst tears and pain.
