Dating Techniques For Over 40s Men And Why It Is So Important To Create A Good first Impression

If you are over 40 and looking to date then possibly you are worried that your physique is not what it was when you were twenty or that your hair has a bit more grey in it than you would like. Well it is true that you can never look like a twenty something again but creating a good first impression is one of the most important dating techniques for the over 40s man.

Women can be fickle creatures and it is true to say that for the majority of women, first impressions do count. Now you could join a gym and starting shaping up but that is likely to take a while so I would suggest in the meantime that you take a good look in your wardrobe and throw out all of your old favourites and invest in some quality clothes that are going to be part of the new you. Spend as much as you can afford on some good quality jeans and well cut shirts. Jeans are a good addition to any wardrobe because they are very much an acceptable dress code at lots of places. But you do need to have a really well cut pair. Also make sure you have a couple of pairs of smart trousers and some decent shoes. Again it makes good sense to spend as much as you can possibly afford on a pair of black shoes and a pair of brown shoes. Most women can pick out an expensive pair of shoes from fifty paces and they will make a good impression on her.

Invest in a good haircut. If you have got some grey streaks they can only help to make you look distinguished. If, on the other hand your hair is very thin, then it may be better to have a really short cut all over or even shave your head. Nothing looks worse than a long length of hair combed across to cover up a balding area of your head.

Now another good dating technique, not just for over 40s men but for any age, is to act and appear confident. I do not mean for you to swagger in to a room and be cocky and arrogant but simply to walk into a room with your head held high and your back straight. If you are wearing well fitted and expensive looking clothes, then trust me, heads will turn.

Once you have the attention of a woman then engage in conversation with her in a friendly and confident manner. Remember she is probably feeling a little shy and insecure herself.
