Is this “The One?”

What Men Look for on a First Date

  • Does she complain about men?
  • Is she open to trying new things?
  • Do I like her clothes and sense of style?
  • Can she speak intelligently about more than one thing (such as her job)?
  • Is she emotionally available or is she still talking to her ex a lot?
  • Can she maintain eye contact? Is she nervous? Is there some energy between us or is it flat? (Nervous is better than flat).
  • Is she generous or is she confrontational? Can she hold her own opinion without making me wrong?
  • Does she have a good sense of humor and a “fun” attitude? Does she get my sense of humor? Is she happy?
  • Do we have chemistry? How does she respond when I put my hand on the side of her arm or in the small of her back? Is she open and not afraid to show that she likes me?
  • Is she high maintenance? Does she talk about nicer places than the one you are taking her to in a way that makes you think she would have rather gone there? Does she pick the most expensive thing on the menu on a first date?
