Admittedly, most of the stuff I read on Cracked.com is more along the lines of "4 Mistakes Every Movie Monster Seems to Make," "6 Insane (But Convincing) Fan Theories About Kids' Cartoons" or "Why the NSA Whistleblower Is Secretly Jason Bourne." But I thought these were pretty dead on. Go to the web site below to get the full reasoning.

#5. They Rely on a "System"
#4. Using Pick-Up Lines
#3. They Let Rejection Dictate Their Actions
#2. They Make Bad Assumptions About What Women Want
#1. They Give Up

#1 makes sense, but it's not really ruining a first impression if they don't care about first impressions.

Keep in mind that cracked is a humor site, and a list based one at that, so they will over simplify things to absurdity to achieve humor. That being said though the list is mostly correct if common-sense.

I agre it's mostly common sense stuff. But judging from some of the dudes posting here lately, I don't always know how common common sense is!

Meh. I have couple better ones.

1. They worry about impressing women thus assuming lower social volume, no different than putting a woman on a pedestal. They brag about their careers, cars, accomplishments, bank accounts. What they're really saying is "you are way too good for me, just as I am - a man, but since i have xyz, or have accomplished xyz maybe we can treat each others as equals. It stinks of insecurity and its an incredible turn off.

2. They are shy, inhibited, nervous and passive. People share energy and if you are nervous when talking to someone for awhile, they will become nervous as well. Provided, it isnt too unusual to be a lil bit nervous when you first meet someone, but when you cant shake it off and start feeling more comfortable and relaxed, you are shooting yourself in the foot. For guys who want to get laid as much as possible and as quickly as possible, here is a secret - when you approach: feel relaxed and sexual, and she will feel in the same way sooner than you can imagine. Feeling sexual is just that, and has nothing to do with talkng about sex, making rude comments etc etc. Simp-ly recognize your strong sexual attraction and stay focused on it. It will dictate what you say, how you say it, your body language, your actons and most importantly the energy you share.

Refining #2, they make wrong assumptions not just about what women WANT but what they ARE. They are not plug and play devices to simply be acquired, like a stereo. They are PEOPLE who want to be involved with other PEOPLE.

A man would ruin his first impression with me if he constantly talked about his ex girlfriends and or wife/wives. Also, if he was fidgety, wouldn't make or keep eye contact and or lacked confidence. Lastly, if he has a lame/limp/weak handshake (especially if his hands were sweaty.)
