5 things women look for on the first date
11 March 2016, 18:02
Nairobi - Dating has become such an ice age movement in the Kenyan
dating world such that when a man asks a woman out from the moment he sees her,
he is already labelled a good
gentleman; most of the time it is normally, ‘So when will you come over?’ Then
an argument will ensue if she really wants to be respected like that and the
real side will show; either she will get the date or the man will explain why
it is not necessary since they know each other.
His manners towards
Most of the time the man will wonder why she suddenly became
cold towards him, but it is not that hard to figure out. As much as you would
like to think that you can behave like a caveman because of everyone else is
like that; that is your group. There are still some gentlemen out here and they
take time to treat women right.
You want to make a big deal out of everything she asks, you
do not want to ask her out, you do not want to take her anywhere and when you
actually do on a date you make such a big deal of you having to spend that
money. If that is your behaviour initially, who the hell wants to deal with that
after they are officially with you? It is not her attitude, but yours.
Obviously, you will not be hearing from her again
Hygiene and grooming
As much as you talk about this, there are always going to be
the ones who either do not read neither
do they take advice because it is him being a man. Grooming is important for
any woman and hygiene takes you a long way from being a simple D to an amazing
A. You can be handsome but if you are not clean; you are disgusting. Then you
can be average or below and that is why some marriages and pairing do not make
sense to a lot of people. The guy simply stepped up on the things he could
The one slurping soup noisily will make you center of not
such good attention. The one talking loudly and abrasively is definitely a
sight to behold or the one that is complaining about everything all the time.
Being insulting and rude from a man toward other people has never been
good-looking coming from a man. It just helps her make up her mind about the
rest of you.
The guy who demands
If she wants to split and asks then nothing wrong with that
but most of time she will just wait to see how you react to the bill especially
if you are the one who asked her out. At times a man will push it at the center
of the table so that she can see how much he is spending on her so that she can
appreciate it and him. If you are seeking such validation from a simple meal
what is awaiting her if she decided she is not giving up anything after a month
Checking in on her
before and after the date
Like making sure she is safe and will be okay to get to and
from the date. Demanding that she be a certain place or time but not asking if
she can even make it or caring how she will get there; does not look well. Then
she does not want to go home with you after dinner so you sulk and never even ask
if she got home fine; you will not hear from her again.
