5 things she’d love to hear...

“You look amazing.”
Acknowledge (and appreciate) that she primped for you. Trust us, even if this is a simple latte liaison, a degree of decision-making went into that jeans-tee-ponytail combo she’s got going on. No need to be too specific; just let her know you’ve noticed that she looks good.

“How was your day?”
This may seem innocuous, but it shows you care and are interested in her life. Make sure to really listen to the response, rather than glaze over when she itemises details of a petty spat with a co-worker. Bonus: It’ll give you something to follow up on in a later conversation (e.g., “Did you patch things up with that crazy woman in finance?”)

“I’m really having a great time with you.”
Probably the best thing you can say mid-date! It takes the edge off, let’s her know she can relax. You’ll also get feedback on how she’s feeling. Hopefully she’ll beam back and say “Me too!” as opposed to a sniffed “How nice."

“What do you think about such-and-such topic?”

Guys, you’re great at telling us what you think, but you can be a bit stingy about seeking out our opinion. Ask your date for her view and she’ll be flattered and stimulating discourse is bound to ensue. Naturally, steer clear of obscure subjects she may not be up on or comfortable discussing, and only bring up hot-button issues like politics if you’re prepared for a potential serious debate.

“I’d love to see you again.”

This is a great way to end a day. It assures that you like her and may prevent that awful waiting-by-the-phone thing women tend to do. Trust us, she’ll appreciate it.
