Wanna know how to impress a girl? Well, there’s a right way and a wrong way to do it! And to begin with, do it without making a fool of yourself!

Are you having a difficult time wooing someone you really like? If you’re wondering how to impress a girl the right way, you need to pay attention to what really matters to women and ignore the fluff that’s causing all the confusion in the first place.

For as long as we can remember, men have been trying to impress women. This isn’t limited to humans, either. If you think about male animals versus females, the males always tend to be brightly colored and they even do a mating dance in order to catch a female’s attention.

This method of mating transfers to humans, too. Except for men usually aren’t decked out in bright colors and they tend to avoid dancing wildly because it usually has the opposite effect of attracting a potential mate.

Don’t make a fool of yourself, fellas: How to impress a girl the right way

Firstly, there is a way to impress a girl without making yourself look like a total idiot – a fear many guys seem to have, yet they go for their crazy antics anyways. The great thing about impressing a girl that men don’t seem to understand is that we are pretty easily impressed. It really doesn’t take much.

Just follow the right ways to impress her

Take it from a gal who has watched many guys make a complete fool of themselves or just downright failed to impress me. If you want to impress a girl the right way and make her want you, here’s how you should be doing it

#1 Be knowledgeable. I mean this in the sense that when you talk to her, you’re not just pulling your answers out of thin air – especially when it’s on a topic that she knows a lot about. Find out her interests and look into them. Gather as much information as you can on the topic and you’ll impress her with your knowledge. 

#2 Don’t go to extreme measures. Getting a horse-drawn carriage for a first date is way too much and will probably do the opposite of impress her. Women don’t care about the extravagant things – those don’t impress us. We prefer simplicity. And who knows?! She could be terrified of horses and you just made yourself look stupid and probably cost yourself a first date.

#3 Do something kind for someone else in front of her. Kindness is something that impresses any woman. If you do something kind for someone else and she is there to witness it, she’ll immediately be impressed. Just don’t force the kindness because she’ll be able to tell. And do NOT stage something in order to look nice in front of her.

#4 Argue with her – but make sure you have valid points. I’m thoroughly impressed by anyone that can argue with me and hold their own. Women love banter. If you can get her to argue – in a nice way, of course – then you’re in. Not only is she spending time talking to you, but she’ll leave with you on her mind.

#5 Be honest – and blunt if you have to. Don’t agree with everything she has to say just because you want her to like you. It might actually have the opposite effect. Women are impressed by a man who has an opinion and isn’t afraid to let it be heard. You’re not going to agree with everything, so speak up if you do disagree and watch her reaction – it’ll be a good one.

#6 Be confident – but not cocky. I think men usually ride the line of confident and cocky far too closely. The truth is that these two things are very close. However, one makes you seem like an asshole while the other makes you seem more attractive. If you can be confident around her without being a jerk about it, it’s impressive.

#7 Follow through when you say you’ll do something. For some reason, women automatically assume that what you say you’ll do something, you’re not actually going to do it. So when you actually call us when you say you’re going to call, we’re impressed and elated. So if you pick up her number and say you’ll call later – do it.

#8 Communicate your feelings. It’s harder for men to open up about their feelings than it is for women. We know this. That’s why when you actually communicate your feelings to us, we’re extremely impressed by it. It shows a kind of maturity that is rare to find and we like that.

#9 Be clean. Now, this doesn’t just refer to your house or apartment. This refers to all things. If you want to impress a girl, keep your car clean, your home clean, and yourself clean. Always be freshly shaven, groomed, and proper. You should also always wear clean clothes and smell immaculate. All of these in combination will impress a girl.

#10 Be chivalrous. In a society that has somewhat forgotten about chivalry, opening a car door, holding the door open as you step inside, and even holding an umbrella over you when it rains are all things that score you major bonus points. Don’t forget about chivalry, fellas. It impresses a girl big time.

#11 Be interested in what her friends are talking about. One of the most impressive things I have ever seen a guy do is hold a conversation with my friends. He still has his main attention on me, but he can butt into the conversation and carry it on his own and without my help. Being interested in what a girl’s friends are interested in is the right way to impress a girl.

#12 Don’t answer your phone when you’re with her. If your ringer is on, just ignore your phone. If there’s something more important than her, then you’re not really interested in her all that much. Ignoring your phone when you’re with her will earn you a lot of credit with her. It’s impressive because when the world is running on technology, it’s difficult to put it down. We appreciate that.

#13 Always ask to follow up questions – bonus points if you stump her. When you’re asking her about her life, hobbies, jobs, etc., always ask some follow up questions to her answers. Not only does it prove you’re paying attention, but we’re impressed by your ability to come back wanting to hear more about it. 

#14 Compliment her on something other than her appearance. I’m not really impressed when a guy tells me my eyes are pretty or my butt is phenomenal. Honestly, that’s all surface attraction. Sure, it’s nice to hear, but when a guy compliments me on my intelligence, artistic ability, or writing skills, I’m much more impressed with him.

So dig deeper than just her appearance. Find out what she’s good at and give her a compliment. It’s even better if you compliment us on our passions since they mean way more to us. 

#15 Notice the little things. I’m always impressed if a guy has great attention to detail. If he notices that I just got my nails done, bought a new perfume, or changed up my eye makeup for that day, it earns him major bonus points. This is impressive because it takes a lot of your attention and focus in order to see those little changes.

Impressing a girl has a lot more to do with your mind than it does your actions. Take it from a girl herself and impress her the right way with these 15 tips.
