IS HE WORTH THE EFFORT?
Practice being independent
It takes a lot of pressure off of men if they know you can make decisions on your own and they aren't going to suddenly find themselves in a situation where they have to take care of you.
Don't play the dumb broad
If you do that, he's going to believe you really are a dumb broad -- and then you can be stuck with the role. And do you really want a man who would want a woman like that?
And that doesn't always mean dress sexy. Sure, men love garter belts, black-seamed stockings and stiletto heels. But save those for the right occasion.
Don't worry if you don't look like a supermodel
After all, you don't expect every guy you meet to look like Tom Cruise or The Rock. Just do the best with what you've got -- and don't pick your teeth with your fingernails. It's class that counts most, not looks.
Be sociable and open
If that hunk who's caught your eye sees you surrounded by a bunch of other guys, he's going to wonder what your secret is.
Remember that guys like compliments, too
If you like his cologne or something he's wearing -- tell him about it. And if you're really interested, you can compliment him -- even if you don't like his choices of cologne or clothes.
Know when to put the cork in the wine bottle
Drinking too much lowers inhibitions, and could make you say or do things you'll regret later.
Say "thanks" when thanks is in order, and say it with a smile.
Ask about his hobbies and other interests
While you're encouraging him to talk about himself, listen carefully and let him know you're interested -- by asking intelligent questions.
Be relaxed and easy to get along with
The more comfortable you are, the more comfortable people around you will be. Remember, he may be just as nervous as you are.
