Keep reading for suggestions on how to make your date feel protected and desired at the same time.
Be a Leader
Girls really appreciate a guy who knows what he’s doing, and is willing to show her the way. You want to be confident but not arrogant. Most women take that as a sign of insecurity, and will wonder what you are trying to cover up. She wants to know that she is with a strong, assertive man who is considerate and trustworthy. Consider taking a leadership course or join a group activity to learn this skill.
Be a Clown
One of the biggest reasons that a girl is interested in a teenage guy is that they make them laugh. Plan and simple, girls like to be entertained with a little wit and playfulness. You do not have to make yourself foolish, or resort to rude behavior to be funny, but being willing to make her laugh is a huge turn on.
Be a Listener
A crucial part of being a good date is your ability to really be engaged and listen to what she is saying. Most girls will talk about their problems, but really aren’t looking for you to solve anything for them. They just want to feel heard. When you actually listen to your date, instead of turning the conversation back to pizza or basketball, you enhance your capacity for sympathy and empathy. Girls will notice how attentive you are, and know that you really care.
Be a Communicator
When a girl cares about you, she naturally wants you to share things about your life with her. Feel free to share whatever you think she might be interested in – she probably wants to know everything about you. You can share problems or memorable stories, as long as you are comfortable with it. Opening up to someone you care about is great for both you and the relationship.
