If you are trying your hand at speed dating or just want to make someone notice you, you often do not have much time to impress them. In fact, usually one has only got about 7 to 10 minutes to make that impression. So, if you are looking for tips on how to impress someone and start dating, here are 10 quick ones to impress them in less than 10 minutes:
1. Be thoroughly groomed.
Be neat and tidy at all times. Dress appropriately and in something that’s suitable for the venue and occasion. And flaunt a style or haircut that’s not too overwhelming or flashy.
2. Portray confidence.
Take charge of the situation. Go talk to them instead of hoping them to make a move. Your gesture and body language must be composed and graceful and in your control.
3. Be natural.
Try to be your natural self. Trying to be too imposing or desperate to impress will only cause them to think you are a player and a show off.
4. Use your eyes as tools.
Let your eyes meet but don’t let them feel you are watching them and don’t stare somewhere you shouldn’t be. Capture their attention and look into their eyes while talking to them. Let your eyes be playful yet enigmatic.
5. Smile at all times.
That of course does not mean in a creepy way. A smile enhances your personality and makes you appear pleasing and congenial.
6. Be classy yet friendly.
Extend a warm ‘Hi’ or ‘Hello’ instead of ‘yo’ or ‘wassup’. Let them know you are mature and sophisticated yet approachable.
7. Pay them a compliment.
Compliments don’t hurt.
Don’t rush into shooting random questions just for the heck of it. Make a lasting connection by listening patiently to the other person.
9. Make a witty or funny conversation opener.
Be attentive and say something interesting related to the place you are in or any incident that may have just happened. If you succeed in making them laugh, it’s a bonus.
10. Let them know of your intelligence and knowledge.
No, it doesn’t mean you start showing off by playing 20 questions with them. It simply implies that you hold command over the conversation and not be afraid to disagree with them.
