Whether you are a teenager who is just starting to date or you are a seasoned dater, there are just things you should never do to impress a guy. You may be the most intelligent and witty girl he’ll ever fall for. He’ll even feel lucky to snag a date with you, but you’ll never know if you do the most to catch his attention. Just relax and avoid these few things you should never do to impress a guy.
1. Dumb Yourself down
Don’t be that one girl that feels like she has to play dumb to keep the guy. If he can’t handle your intelligence, then how will he ever support your success? You have worked hard to become the person that you are, and he should recognize and appreciate that. Never feel like you must play an inferior role to be loved; this is one of the biggest things you should never do to impress a guy.
2. Dress in Only the Skimpiest of Clothes
There is nothing wrong with showing a little leg here or really toned arms there. However, dressing like you are at the beach or a lingerie model everywhere you go is a problem. It will not get you the respect that you deserve as a lady, nor will it make you any more desirable to men as a potential girlfriend or wife. Skimpy attire will make you look easily accessible. No man really wants a woman who is easily accessible.
3. Forget Your Manners
You are a lady. Be one. Do not forget your pleases or your thank you(s). No matter who you are around, you should always treat others with respect and appreciation. Now you don’t have to go overboard with your politeness, just do not be rude to others.
4. Curse like a Sailor
I do not understand this phenomenon going on where people feel like it is ok to curse freely. Cursing is still an obscene gesture. It will not make you look cool. In fact, many guys agree that hearing a woman cursing is a big turnoff. Don’t curse around your guy because you think it will make you look “cool” because that will probably backfire.
5. Shut Everyone out
It is a mystery to me as to why girls think that shutting everyone out after you meet a guy will make your relationship more successful. Your friends and family are a part of the person that you are. Shutting them out won’t guarantee that things with the guy will work out. It probably won’t help seal the deal either.
6. Pretend to Be Interested
You should never pretend to share an interest with a guy. For example, I have not played a game of basketball since I was on my 8th grade Girls B-Team for the sport. So it would be completely ridiculous for me to say to my guy that I just love, love, and love to play the sport. Falsifying your interest will never play off. Eventually guys will ask more in depth questions about the hobby that you won’t be able to answer.
7. Lose Your Sense of Self
It is super easy to become so entangled in getting a guy to like you that you start taking on some of his hobbies. That is ok. However, it is not ok to change who you are completely to match his vision of an ideal girlfriend. You have to be your own person. If he is going to like you, it has to be for the right reasons. What good is it if he likes you for reasons that are artificial?
When it comes to love, you’ve got to be yourself. Any guy that loves you is going to love you for the person that you are. What have you tried to do in order to impress a guy?
