Making a stellar first impression
by : Jill Dellamalva
Itís the big night. Youíve paid your $25, and youíre about to face a crowded room of singles who, like yourself, are looking for love. Youíll get to go on seven-minute Speed Dates with ten of them, and hopefully leave with a phone number or two.
Wait one minute. Weíre going to turn that ďhopefullyĒ into an ďabsolutelyĒ. You are going to absolutely leave the Speed Dating session tonight with some phone numbers.
ďBut how?Ē you ask.
With a few little tips, thatís how. Listen up.
No matter how you look at it, the first minute of your seven minute date will be spent sizing each other up. Appearances may not mean everything in a relationship, but on Speed Dates they carry a lot of weight. If youíve just met a girl, and your shirt clashes horribly with your pants, your hair is a mess, and your deodorant is not working properly and youíve got big sweat marks under your arms, chances are sheíll write you off in that very first minute. Sheíll be sitting there praying for the seven minutes Ė which now seem like an eternity in hell Ė to please end.
To avoid this scenario, take some time before your Speed Dating session to pick out some clothes that impress. As the saying goes: ďDress for success.Ē Wear something that looks neat and put together. Keeping it simple is usually best. (Wild clothing and hair styles should be saved for punk rock Speed Dating sessions.) You want to stand out in the crowd, but not in a negative way. Oh, and make sure that those clothes are properly ironed!
Also make sure your hair is neatly groomed, your breath is fresh, and your deodorant is working. Some cologne or perfume (for the girls) in moderation never hurts Ė but donít take a bath in it. Basically, if you look good, youíll feel good. Your date will sense that, and your chances of having a high mark on his or her scorecard will be greater.
If appearance isnít everything, then attitude certainly is.
Attitude is important in both personality and in body language. For example, donít slouch when sitting across from your date. Sit tall and confident. A confident person is desirable; they know what they want and go after it. Donít bite your nails, crack your knuckles, or yawn. Itís ok to be a little nervous, but donít let your nerves dominate the date. In the end, your date will remember cringing as you bit the skin off of your thumb.
Most importantly, go on the date with a smile and a sense of humor. Let your date see that youíre having fun. If you radiate a sense of fun, humor, and happiness, your date will be attracted to that and want to see you again. Make eye contact, and show your date that he or she has your complete attention. Make them feel like they are the only person in that crowded room. You may want to give your date a compliment, but make sure itís just one. Overdoing the compliments will make you look insincere. Really, how many times can you compliment a person youíve only known for a few minutes?
And remember: never, ever insult anyone or make fun of anything during your date. You donít know the type of person your date is, and it could be that you somehow end up insulting them. Politics, religion, race, and other sensitive topics should be avoided at all costs. This is a date, remember Ė not a debate.
If you happen to be a shy person, and feel uncomfortable making small talk with a stranger, keep in mind that to your date, you can be just about anyone. They donít have to know you are shaking in your shoes. Have confidence. If you are that worried about what to talk about with your date, have some topics planned in advance of going. But donít make it sound like youíre reading them off of a list. Let your conversation sound natural.
If anything is going to win your date over in the end, itís simplicity, politeness, sincerity, and a smile.
Speed Dating is simplified dating. Donít complicate it.
With that said, good luck. Now go out there and get those phone numbers!
