In a world where online dating sites are popular, is courting the girl you really like still a thing? In this fast-paced time where speed datings and one night stands are everywhere, there are still some out there who want to find the love of their life the old-fashioned way. Let’s face it, ladies want to feel special. I mean who doesn’t? And most guys are not used to expressing what they feel through actions. But when it comes to the girl of their dreams, they’ll really make an effort to win the girl’s heart.
Impressing the girl you like doesn’t need to be extravagant or expensive, in fact, the most effective things you can do don’t cost anything at all. Sometimes we think that the grander the gift the more she’ll like it when in fact, it’s always the simple gestures that really matter the most.
It’s amazing to be romantic and impress the girl you like because it gives them the warm and fuzzy feeling inside. But for other guys who have little to no clue of how to do those kinds of things it’s easy to go overboard and become too cheesy that would make the girl uncomfortable. You might find it hard to do, but it’s actually easy if you know what to do. Here are a few proven ways to impress the girl you like.
1. Be clear about your intentions.
Telling her about your intentions makes things clear between the both of you. Sometimes when you do all those nice things without really having a clear intention can make her feel confused. Ladies tend to overthink things and you don’t want her to feel like that. It’s just better that she knows why you’re doing those things for her and that you have the purest intentions in your actions.
2. Get to know her.
It is important to know the girl you like better and on a deeper level. There’s so much more than what you see on the outside. If you really want to impress her, you would do this by getting to know the things she likes or the things she’s passionate about. Be interested to know the things that she really cares about. Do not hesitate to ask questions, but respect her if she doesn’t want to answer because the question is too personal and it makes her uncomfortable.
It’s also a plus when you’re a good listener. When she’s sharing about something, pay attention and listen attentively. This will show that you care about what’s going on her mind. You can do this by simple gestures such as smiling, nodding your head or showing the appropriate emotions on the things she’s talking about.
3. Be chivalrous.
Open the door for her, buy her flowers, pull out the chair for her, or give her your jacket when she feels cold. These are the things you can do that can prove that chivalry is not dead in the modern times. You don’t have to do something big like slaying a dragon, becoming a hero or doing any kind of fairytale-like deed. What matters is how you act like a true gentleman and how you also treat her with respect.

5. Do not be overly competitive.
Not everything is a competition. You don’t always have to be the best one. Girls may find it irritating if you have that kind of attitude. You can dream big and aim high, but always do it with a humble heart and not get to a point where you’re bringing other people down just to achieve your goal/s.
6. Get along with her friends.
Girls love it when you can get along with her friends. It really shows how likable you are as a person and you can easily interact with other people. However, you still need to know your boundaries. Being too close with her friends can be a turn off for her.
7. Treat people with kindness and respect.
When the girl you like sees that you treat your mom or any woman in your life with respect and kindness, and also have a good relationship with them, she would really be impressed with you. This doesn’t mean that you should fake it, being kind and respectful should be done with the purest intentions and consideration.
8. Dress up nicely.
Dressing up nicely doesn’t mean that you should buy the most expensive clothes. It’s okay if you’re a t-shirt and jeans kind of guy, but make sure that it’s clean and not nasty. This also shows if you practice a good hygiene or not. It’s also really important to practice good hygiene, this includes taking a bath daily, smelling good, brushing your teeth etc.
9. Be firm with your decisions.
A man who can be firm with his decisions and is capable of leading is very attractive to girls. It is also necessary that a man is willing to own up to his mistakes and make the right and important changes to improve himself. Women like to feel protected and a man in charge who is able to adapt to any conditions and also confident as a leader.
10. Be yourself.
This is probably the most important tip on the list. It’s simple: Whatever you do to make impress or make her feel special, make sure that you’re still being yourself and not act as someone that you’re not. No one wants someone who pretends just to impress someone. If she can’t accept you for who you really are then maybe she’s not the right one for you.
All girls are different and they all have different tastes and likes so whatever you do still vary from the girl you really like. Just remember that in anything you do, do it with sincerity. And do it with patience and consistency, she will truly appreciate it and all your efforts will be worth in the end.
