If you’re serious about meeting a guy, you’ve probably read a ton of articles already with different points of view on meeting and how to conduct yourself with what may just be Mr. Right.

When you’re ready to meet the man of your dreams, it’s important to know the right things to say and do.  One mistake can cost you a chance of another meeting or date.  Relationships are fragile especially in the beginning.  Whether it’s a blind date or a chance meeting when you’re out with your friends, it’s important to realize that body language can go a long way with the initial meeting.

Okay, imagine this situation for a minute.  You’re out with your friends and you notice a guy at the other end of the bar or restaurant looking in your direction, throwing glances and smiles your way.  What do you do?

First of all, do not turn and immediately whisper to your friends, “hey look at the guy over there, he’s looking at me!”  Suffice to say, he will immediately be turned off because he will think you’re talking about him and mocking him in some way.  Guys, believe it or not, are sensitive creatures and the thought of mocking him will kill any chance of him coming over.  Keep in mind he was looking at you, not your friends!

Secondly, if you like the man who’s looking at you, do not look away.  Hold a glance back at him for 5 seconds.  This lets him know you too find him attractive.  Of course, you must smile a little bit too.  Facial expression can say so much about how people perceive you whether you know it or not.

Thirdly, do not ignore his body language, give him the chance to come over to you.  Maybe he will tell the waitress to send you a drink.  If this happens and you like the guy, accept the kind gesture, look over at him, smile and say thanks!  This gives him the courage to come over, especially if he’s with his friends!

Fourthly, don’t ignore the friends you are with.  If and when he does come over, be kind, smile and introduce yourself then introduce him to your friends.  This will give him a sense of importance and acceptance with your group.

Lastly, do not go home with him.  You came with your friends, leave with your friends.  This ups the respect and starts the possible relationship on the right foot.  Instead, give him your number, but usually he’ll ask for yours first.  If he doesn’t and you’d like to see him again, it’s perfectly fine to go ahead and give him your number.
