First Impression

Creating a great first impression is one of the most important things you can do.


Because it is said that someone can make their mind up about you within 30 seconds of meeting you. If you give a good impression then great. However if you give off a bad impression then it takes a lot of work to recover.

A little quote for you

Here is a quote from a site called ‘Psychology Today’. This is one of the most interesting things I have read recently.

“Consider one study in which untrained subjects were shown 20- to 32-second video-taped segments of job applicants greeting interviewers. The subjects then rated the applicants on attributes such as self-assurance and likability. Surprisingly, their assessments were very close to those of trained interviewers who spent at least 20 minutes with each applicant.”

From this quote you can realise that any girl you meet will make a snap judgement of you when you first approach.

Making a good first impression

Hopefully now you will realise that making a good first impression is key to your success with women. Here are some actions that you should definitely do:

Get Your style sorted

If you look the part then you are more likely going to be the part. So make sure that you dress to impress cos’ it’s one of the first things women see.


Another thing they mentioned over at ‘Psychology Today’ is that people search for a smile. The reason we do this is because we are checking to see the likelihood of getting a positive response. Let’s be honest, are you more likely to approach a girl who gives you a smile, or the one that gives you a dirty look?

Body language

You should definitely check out: ‘Body language to attract women’. The way you hold yourself and walk towards a girl is going to make a huge difference to the way she perceives you.

If you walk with slumped shoulders or with your eyes looking towards the ground, then she is going to think you lack confidence. This is not good for building attraction.

Project your voice

If you say, “Hello” with a whimper like a mouse then a girl will straight away will think you have little confidence. Therefore you want to make sure that you speak with confidence and show that you are not afraid of whichever gorgeous woman you have decided to approach. You might want to look at improving your public speaking for tips on how to improve how you speak to women.

Final thought

First impressions are really important. If you can make a good first impression then you are already on your way to being more successful.
