A Dating Tip You Should Always Keep In Mind

A Dating Tip You Should Always Keep In Mind

While checking my emails this morning, I’ve received a lot of messages from guys asking for a tip that can help them boost their chances of acing a first date.

You’ll be happy to hear, however, that I’ve got one that may just help you pull it off. Let me express this the simplest way I can…

I’ve discovered that making a simple mistake can easily ruin your chances of acing a first date no matter how hard you try. I know this sounds crazy right now, but this mistake is worrying too much.

Now while it is pretty normal to become worried when you’re prepping up to go out with a woman you like for the very first time, overdoing it can lead to rather horrible results.

See, the feeling of worry is basically the result when the brain stimulates the endocrine system to release the stress hormones epinephrine and cortisol in the body. These hormones are usually released during situations that are interpreted by the system to be possibly risky.

The effects of epinephrine and cortisol usually include an increase in heart rate, faster breathing, a spike in blood pressure as well as a temporary state where your senses become heightened, particularly the sight and smell.

Interestingly, a first date is interpreted by the body as a potentially risky situation because of the possibility that you might experience rejection during one.

Sure the word “stress” in “stress hormones” may have negative implications, it is actually the body’s way of making you think and act faster and more clearly during critical situations.

In fact, having minimal amounts of cortisol and epinephrine in your body during a first date can be actually positive since these help you communicate better as well as become more sensitive to a woman’s body language.

This is what normally happens when only small amounts of epinephrine and cortisol are released in your system. However, having lots of it in your body at once can easily lead to effects that can ruin your chances at acing a first date.

When these stress hormones pile up in your body excessively, you become extremely afraid and anxious for no reason at all. This is called a panic attack, which significantly affects the way you act and talk. It also manifests itself physically as well through excessive sweating, chest pain and heart palpitations.

Depending on its intensity, a panic attack can even disrupt your breathing and make you feel you are having a heart attack.

So that’s pretty much it. Avoid being a worrywart and you’ll be just fine. It’s quite normal to worry before and during a first date, but allowing it to overwhelm you at some point will only lead to disaster.

(And here’s why listening intently to your date helps a lot as well.)
