Why Grooming Can Make Or Break Your Chances At Dating
I know this sounds rather simplistic right now, but not keeping a close eye on your grooming can really hurt your chances of scoring a lot of brownie points during first dates.
Now while how you look and smell during your first date play key factors when it comes to establishing an emotional connection with the woman you’re going out on a first date with, making sure your grooming is up to par can also help you ace it in a psychological way.
Let me explain what I mean…
During my extensive research into the male psychology, I discovered that taking good care of yourself by making grooming a priority isn’t just about aesthetics and smelling nice. It also has to do with how fast your body can release positive mood-altering hormones when you really need them the most.
As it turns out, going on a first date with a woman can be a bit stressful to a guy. No matter how many times you went out for dates already, you still won’t be immune to feelings of nervousness and anxiety that you’ll experience during the same.
Even if you think you’re already a veteran of the dating scene, you will just be surprised how you’ll feel the next time you go out with a woman for the first time. Sure you’re going to be rather familiar with how things are going to turn out, but you will still feel a bit jumpy nevertheless.
Unlike what a lot of men mistakenly believe, this doesn’t mean that something is wrong with you. It is simply a natural reaction set off by your brain when you’re in the process of getting to know a woman better. Depending on how anxious and nervous you are, this reaction can easily affect the way you interact with the woman you’re on a date with.
Besides making you act awkwardly, it also makes you talk funny, which is definitely not going to impress your date anytime soon. Although this reaction couldn’t be prevented, I discovered a simple way to ease its effects.
And this is making it a point to groom yourself properly before going out on a first date.
See, sprucing yourself up by taking a long shower, getting rid of excess facial hair, putting on deodorant and picking out a nice outfit also fires up the brain to churn out positive mood-altering hormones, which counteract the effects of their negative counterparts.
This means that while you’re still going to feel jumpy during your first date, it won’t be as intense as usual and you can easily manage how you’ll act and talk during the same. And if you can pull this off, well, convincing her to go out with you the second time isn’t going to be that tricky.
(Now we’ve got that covered, here’s why listening to your date intently is a priority.)
