Sexpert Q&A: Making a Good Impression

Hi Dr. Yvonne, I'm about to meet my girlfriend's closest friends over Thanksgiving. I want to make a good impression. Any tips for a nervous guy? -Brent

Dear Brent, First and foremost, dote on her. The more attention you can lavish on her, the more she'll be the envy of her friends - but in a good way. Since so many guys have trouble being 'lovey' in public, any time a guy gets affectionate (and I'm not talking about groping), it wins women over.

Furthermore, the more interest you show in them, and this means even little things, like buying a couple rounds of drinks or picking up the dinner tab or getting the hostess flowers for her fete, the more they'll be impressed. More than anything, be yourself and let your genuine affections for your girlfriend shine through. Nothing makes women feel more confident about their girlfriends' romantic relationships than knowing that she has a good guy who is putting her on a pedestal.
