Dates are a great way for two people to get to know each other in a generally low pressure, but still personal, environment. Oh, I’m sorry, a date is when a guy asks a girl he is interested in out for a meal or some other activity instead of texting her at 2:47 a.m. on a Saturday. Anyway, a first date is a crucial time for anyone who is seriously into the person that they are going on said date with. First impressions are absolutely everything, even more so than usual. You wanted to come off interested, but not eager. Interesting, but not insane. If the two of you are going out to eat, what you order is even important. You don’t want to order a salad because no guy wants to listen to why Salad Girl only ordered a salad. Ordering a cheeseburger could show that you are a girl who can eat, but also can display your complete lack of table manners. Luckily, a study found exactly what you should order on a date to take away the pressure.
Exactly what he orders.
Yes, ma’am. Just let him order, and straight up copy him. It doesn’t have to be exactly the same because you are an independent woman who doesn’t need a man to tell you what to eat, but something similar enough that it’s in the same food family.
Through a series of tests — ranging from whom participants were more likely to trust with their money all the way to whom participants were more likely to engage in business negotiations with — the study’s findings proved people were more likely to trust and enjoy the company of people who ordered similar foods as them.
This will work on anyone you are trying to impress: bosses, new friends, mother-in-laws (tuck that tidbit away for the future). Just don’t start copying everything else about him. It might get a little creepy..
