So you've just met someone you REALLY like - but how can you leave a lasting impression on them, so they'll want to see you again (and again)? With the right words and actions, almost anyone can create a captivating presence. Here's 6 ways to be memorable when you've met someone new (Source: J. Reisenger; R. Riker):
  1. Put on your talking hat:  on a date, silence is NOT golden. Lose your fear of sounding like a fool - tell some stories, ask some questions, talk about something that made you feel good today.
  2. Be blunt and completely honest:  people remember extremes, not mediocrity. Don't shy away from saying what's on your mind - but be open to hearing the other person's views, particularly if they disagree with you.  Being open-minded is a very sexy quality.
  3. Be a little bit unusual:  breaking out of the cultural norm is an easy way to stick out - but try and stick out in a positive way.
  4. Use confident body language:  nothing will make you stand out more than confident body language - a firm handshake or hug, positive energy, good posture, great eye contact and a killer smile.
  5. Trigger emotions:  to really stand out, you need to make the person you're with feel something - preferably something good; make them laugh, compliment them, engage in a heated two-way conversation.
  6. Be an engaged listener:  people will likely forget what you say, but they'll always remember how you made them feel. Step 1 of making someone feel special is to listen to them - really listen. Active listening is a powerful aphrodisiac.
