You get her number, you’re brave enough to call it, the conversation goes past the fluff talk, and you’re getting the vibe that she likes you. So, with a deep breath you push your proposal.
“I’m going to pick you up this Friday at 7pm. We’ll go out and eat someone’s food.”
“Okay. I’ll see you then.”
WHAT!? You can’t believe it; you even give yourself a congratulatory high-five for your efforts. But then, you realize you have no fucking idea what you got yourself into. Now what?
1. Take a shit
Before you leave the house it’s crucial you take a shit. Arriving at her house, or worse, having to shit at your date location, can be time consuming. So take a shit, I don’t care if you pop a blood vessel, push as hard as you can.
2. Pack a Condom(s) in your Pocket
Don’t sell yourself short; you have to motivate yourself that this date will end well. What better way than by prepping yourself against STDs and babies.
3. Know your Directions
Don’t be an idiot and get lost during the date. Fix your GPS, bring an atlas, just do whatever it takes so she knows you’re not Helen Keller.
4. Save your Money
Make a monetary budget for the night. There are so many girls in this world and if you paid for each date you’ll be a broke ass man. Be smart and save your money. What we like to do is withdraw $60 (or less) from the bank and leave our debit card in the house.
This mentality allows us to limit our spending and gets us to be more creative in the locations we pick.
Location, Location, Location
You’re prepared and ready to have a fun night with her, but you’re just staring at this article because you need a deeper understanding of where to go.
1. Shuffle Her Around
Shuffling is a term we use often at Simple Pickup.
Basically, you want to pick various locations she can go with you so the date doesn’t get boring. Psychological research states that you create more prominent memories when you travel. This means, in this one date, she’ll be sharing a shitload of awesome memories with you when you shuffle her around.
Examples include, going to a place where there are more things to do than just eat. Driving somewhere and then jumping out of the car to walk through a fire trail.
2. Pick a Place where You can Have a Conversation
The music, the DJ, the band, and any other ambiance from a club or concert will only distract her from you. The attention span of a person, let alone a girl, is like mosquito transfixed to a light bulb.
You don’t want her to multi task, her main focus should be on you.
3. Avoid Group Dates
Unless you’re in middle school or you all made a signed agreement to partake in an orgy, this is a stupid idea. Remember, her body should not be touched by anyone else during the date.
Though we’ll get into more detail of how to touch a girl, here are some basic principles.
1. Touch her Right Away
Touching her boobs in the first 2 minutes isn’t the best idea. But, push yourself out there and give her a hug. Nothing says I’m an insecure wimp than NOT touching her, or worse, shaking her hand.
2. Hold her Hand
When do you hold her hand? The motto is this: If you feel like you should hold her hand, take the initiative to make the first step to play with her fingers, with your fingers. You can play with her fingers using different body parts later.
You’re thinking about the Ice Cream shop and the Oregon Trail you have planned for her, when suddenly you realize that you’re in front of her door. You begin to ask yourself:
How do I act? What do I say? How do I make sure she’s going to have a good time?
Easy. Inhale and exhale. Remember, she gave you her phone number and was excited enough to accept this date. She already likes you, so act the same way as how she met you on the fateful night near the dumpster of the homeless shelter. She wants the player who made her laugh and surprised her with his presence. So get out there and knock on her door. It’s time for your first date.
