How to Impress a Man

Men are easier to impress than women, right? Sometimes.


  • Remember that men like women with confidence. If you like who you are, they'll like who you are.
  • Practice being independent. It takes a lot of the pressure off of men to know they don't have to take care of you.
  • Don't play dumb. If that's what it takes to impress a certain man, do you really want him?
  • Dress well. Wear whatever you have on with your own style. Guys like those black seamed stockings and flashy high heels, sure, but you'll be more fun if you're comfortable.
  • Don't worry if you don't look like a supermodel. After all, you don't demand that the men in your life all look like movie stars, right? There are more important things. Give guys credit for knowing that.
  • Be engaging. A woman who is sitting with a bunch of men is intriguing. Those guys are sitting with her for a reason. Other men will want to know what it is.
  • Notice what a man is wearing and compliment him. Men often go to a lot of trouble to look good, but rarely get as many compliments as women do.
  • Don't drink too much. Your inhibitions will be lowered and you might say or do things you wouldn't normally do.
  • Be appreciative. Say thanks when it's appropriate. Smile when you say it. It means a lot.
  • Ask the man about his work, his hobbies, his interests. Listen carefully and ask questions.
  • Find out what he's interested in. If you can hold your own in a discussion on baseball, stock cars or fishing, you're in.
  • Be relaxed and easy to get along with. The more comfortable you are, the more comfortable the people around you are. You might not be the only one who's nervous.

While you're busy impressing your man, don't forget to take the time to make sure he's worth impressing. It's a two-way street - you should both impress each other.

Tips from eHow Users:
Dress classy, but modestly by David R.
As a guy, I speak from personal knowledge, and from the testimony of every single guy I've ever asked about this issue. Women are much more attractive when they dress modestly than when they dress like prostitutes--at least if you want any kind of lasting attraction. There is just something pleasant and relaxing about seeing a girl who looks good and who doesn't have to depend on exposing herself in order to look good in the process. Classy modesty is beautiful. To quote one author: "Men aren't faithful to hookers, so why would you dress like one?" A point well taken, I hope.
Be true to yourself by eHow Friend
Fact- You will not attract every guy.
Truth- but you will attract the one that is for you, if you stay true to who you are. If there is one thing that I have learned, it is that you cannot change who you are to fit someone else. When you do this you might lose out on a really great attribute that you have. Just because the wrong guy does not like something about you does not mean that the right guy won't. And trust me, that is just what he is the right man if he accepts you for who you are, even the things that can exasperate him. He will learn to tolerate because he understands that this is apart of you. And if he is really real and he feels that something that you do bothers him he will tell you in a respectable manner, but will not judge or hold if over your head. He will both understand and cherish your differences. From experience I know what it is like to hide an attribute about yourself because someone else was to insecure to handle it. Don't let someone else's insecurities drive you. Be true to yourself. Always.
Flowers! For me? Jessie

Don't ask for much  ATRELLIA S.

A little hello or hi when you see your crush will go a long way. It will tell them that you want to get to know them better and they'll know who you are. As time progresses you'll have longer conversations as you will know each other better.
Don't suffocate him  Renee
Don't try to be around your guy ALL THE TIME! It makes a guy feel suffocated. Not good. If you're too possessive, he'll get scared away.
Your ex  eHow Friend
Never mention your ex to him or anything about your love life. Men hate it when they are compared to other men.
