    just be yourself because that is who you will be over time anyway.

    There was a guy I was interested in, so I just asked for his number. He said I have a b/f. I said call me when it's over and he didicon_razz.gif

    Have things to do in your life that matter to you and be committed to them. Be confident, like who you are. Gifts, compliments/flattery can come off as insecurity. The premise of how to "impress" someone kind of comes as insecure from the get-go though.

    If he's genuinely "into you", you could take a shit in front of him and he'd still like you.

    What a bizzare thing to say.

    I was employing hyperbole, I'm not some scat freak.

    Seriously.

    Honestly I have no idea what I did to make the guys that have liked me like me. They often times have told me that they were simply impressed by the kind of guy I was, and have even times accessed that by stuff as random and pointless as overhearing me describe why I enjoyed a movie.

    But I know things that guys have done to impress me/get me to like them varies.
    First and foremost, its usually also simply because of the type of person they are. What do they value in life? What are their goals? What are their values? Do we have stuff in common? can they enjoy my kind of fun? can I enjoy theirs?

    But stuff that they have actively done was just simply knowing that they liked me, was very unapologetic about it and pursuing me. There's nothing more annoying than trying to figure/feel a guy out. They were Just very open and honest and made it very clear that I am the kind of guy that turned them on, intellectually and physically.

    I think when a guy is genuinely into you, they'll do the right stuff. just the same, the guy you like, if he's genuinely into you, he'll be receptive. So I say a guy shouldn't have to go far out of his way. Just show genuine interest, however it is you show that, and the right guy will respond to it, the wrong ones won't.

    Agree. If he is really into you then he'll love everything about you. So no matter what you do, as long as you show him that you care and are into him as well, that's all that matters icon_smile.gif

    after working a 12 hour night shift; my bf answered my frantic call for assistance 2 hours after he got off work and literally carried me out of my house and to the ER after the meniscus tendon in my knee snapped.

    he sat there patiently comforting me as best as he could in public, then drove me to my mother's house and made polite small chat with her, having not even met her before.

    he then carried me into my old bedroom, sat with me and comforted me until the pain meds kicked in and i fell asleep.


    yes, he's a "keeper".

    These things don't actually impress me because if I want stuff I can buy it myself, and if I want dinner I can always have it with my friends (probably have a better time too!)

    I absolutely agree that it should be something thoughtful and romantic. I want to have the feeling and the experience that someone actually gives a shit about me and how I feel. That is how you impress a guy, IMHO.

    I'm impressed by someone who's honest, truthful, and transparent. I don't like being put in a situation where I'm always second-guessing the credibility or veracity of another person's words or actions. When someone has unequivoically demonstrated to me that he's trustworthy, every word that he says and every action that he takes impresses me. That's just the way my brain works.

    This guy I have been dating lately took me to see "Les Misérables" last night, and I will never be the same again. What a show... and what a nice way to impress a guy for an evening!

    Here's a humorous look at what can happen when you try to impress. Sometimes what impresses the most can be just you being you and nothing more. icon_wink.gif


    So here's a little Canadian gal's take on the subject, with lyrics (the lyrics are hilarious)

    Sorry, but this song always did my head in.

    It's like, "Really Shanaya? You weren't in the slightest bit impressed when the guy chatting you up turned out to be Brad Pitt? That seriously didn't impress-a-you-much? I beg to differ, Shanaya, I beg to fucking differ."
