You Will Need

  • Women-friendly hangouts
  • Altruism
  • A good spot
  • An online dating profile
  • A good suit
  • A 5 o'clock shadow
  • Confidence


  1. Step 1

    Hang out where the girls are: farmer's markets, bookshops, yoga classes, dance lessons, or concerts featuring romantic crooners or solo female artists.

  2. Step 2

    When you spot a woman you want to impress, do something noble. Women find do-gooders more exciting than daredevils, according to one study.

  3. Step 3

    Know the best place to stand to attract the opposite sex: the center of the room at a party, and at the corner of the bar in a club.

  4. Don't hug the wall or sit down; it makes you unapproachable.

  5. Step 4

    Do sign up for a dating web site, but don't make any of the top four mistakes guys make on their profile page: Including pictures of ex-girlfriends; posting revealing pictures of themselves; using out-of-date photos; and featuring their own poetry.

  6. Step 5

    At speed dating events, don't boast about yourself. Ask questions and talk about travel. It will increase your chances of being picked for a date.

  7. Step 6

    Invest in a good suit. Women love a man in a well-cut suit. Especially if he has a hint of 5 o'clock shadow.

  8. Get into shape, but don't bulk up too much; women surveyed found "toned" men more attractive than "brawny" ones.

  9. Step 7

    Be confident, even if you have to fake it. Women can smell fear a block away, and it's definitely not a turn-on.

  10. Step 8

    When you see someone you want to meet, take a chance and say hello. That and a smile works better on women than any cheesy pickup line.

  11. Chicago was rated the best city for men to meet women, according to an online men's magazine.
