First Impressions last
Early this morning, I was brainstorming for my next blog post while listening to the Radio(“the John Tesh Radio Show”). There was this topic that really caught my attention. John was talking about, “how women would size you up in 5 seconds guaranteed”. He just listed the factors, but didn’t elaborate. I thought I should discuss those factors in further detail.
As guys, we all know that women makes snap judgements about us all the time. Its been like that since the beginning of time, its a given. And to some of us, it may not be a surprise any more. We’re so used to it, we sometimes unconsciously act the way she wants us to. Notice yourself when you’re with your friends, now compare that when you’re with her. Exactly, that’s why people say that you can’t really tell that you know someone, until you actually lived with them. But until then, you can follow these to help you get that good first impression.
This best applies to guys that had been living on their own, and has their own place.
(This isn’t arranged in any order)
Yes books! Experts says, that women would associate no books with no brains. You have to have books in your apartment. Even if you don’t read, if you really want that good first impression, then set up that little library. It wouldn’t cost you much, you can always just salvage any old bookshelf from your old house or get one in goodwill, do whatever. Just get one.
A Clean bathroom! Having a dirty bathroom tells a girl that you have very poor hygiene. Who wants to have that as a First impression? If you know she’s coming over, then make time to clean your bathroom prior to her visit. This is arguably the most important factor in the list. Do it!
Mhm this is always on the list. A stocked kitchen with cook books, utensils, healthy food in the fridge, will tell a girl that you can actually fend for yourself. That’s one of the most important things to know, she would think that you could possibly take care of her too. Mac and Cheese is awesome though, not going to lie.
Your pets could actually help you get a girl. Now that’s something I never heard about. Anything that can be nurtured, factors into this, like Cats, Dogs, and even plants. This means that you are capable of taking care of other things other than yourself. Get yourself a dog, walk it out and watch it do its magic. trust it will work!
Big screen TV & Gaming Consoles
I totally disagree on this one. Especially, when everyone has it at home. Not having an Entertainment set up is blasphemy. But Experts says that Having a Big Screen TV and gaming console in your house, tells a girl that you have too much time in your hands and immature. hmm. That’s true in many ways, but also wrong. Its true because it does give out a vibe that you play video games most of your spare time, and also wrong because nowadays consoles have many other uses other than gaming, watching movies for one. I mean, that’s my opinion. If anything, just tell her that you only use your gaming console for watching movies, but you don’t want to seem defensive too.
