Dating 101 – Getting the first date

Mark Eckdahl, co-founder of ScheduleMax Online Scheduling, and also host of this podcast shares what he had to learn about first dates, before he found success.

Here are the key points:

  1. You need to be the true you and absolutely not anyone else, she is looking for the real you, not who you think you ought to be.
  2. The most attractive thing you can be has nothing to do with your looks, fitness, money, job, house or car; it is something you have complete control of: YOUR CONFIDENCE. I will show you how to work on this.
  3. Girls Just Wanna Have Fun! Keeping this in mind will help you win the race.
  4. Last but not least, Put on your Running shoes and grab your throwing NET, and prepare yourself to risk LIFE and LIMB for this the ultimate reward. You must leave your comfort zone to be able to … pay for that first cup of coffee you buy her. Yes, that should be your first date, and it should cost you less than $20, this reduces the pressure on both you and your lovely date.
