Impress Her Best Friend
You'll score big if her friends, especially her best friend, takes to you. Remember, her opinion of you speaks volumes - your girl will hear all about how lucky she is to have found you and what a catch you are. Work on befriending her best gal pal but be genuine, says LaDawn Black, author of Let's Get It On: 15 Hot Tips and Tricks to Spice Up Your Sex Life. Take an interest in her problems and offer thoughtful, honest opinions. Once you hit it off, you'll have a useful ally on your side.
Desperation Is Unbecoming
This can be tricky. Unless you've already reached home base on the first date, there is no textbook formula as to how much time you should date before jumping underneath the sheets. Hold it out and she may think you do not find her physically attractive. Get it on too soon and you're deemed a sleazebag. So study her body language. Chances are, if she finds you hot and can't wait to get frisky, she'll be dropping all the hints you need. "A woman wants to feel like 'he gets me'," says Dennie Hughes, author of Dateworthy.
Don't Just Be Nice To Her
There are guys who are nice to their partner but mean towards everyone else. "She's looking at how you treat other people," says David Wygant, author of Always Talk to Strangers. Do the Jekyll and Hyde so you're revealing your real self. Be consistently nice and save those anger spurts for the soccer match.
Be Cool, But Not Too Cool
Play it cool but not too cool. Girls want you to feel and act slightly jealous when they talk to another guy or when someone shows interest. "If he's too supportive of my venturing out and trying something new - like talking to other men at the bar - I'll take the hint and move on," says Selina, 26. "If he's silent, then I'll take it that he's jealous, which is hot."
Show How Far You'll Go For Her
Women will gauge how much their boyfriends are willing to sacrifice for them, possibly in situations such as needing you to babysit her hyper husky or chaperoning her inquisitive mother to the mall. She's seeing how much you'll sacrifice for her when she's not around, says Wygant. "She wants to make sure you want all of her, including the painful parts."
