Courtesy of YourTango with a CrazySingleLife twist, here are four things that women love to hear on the first date.

So, as of January 1st, I’ve been working out semi-regularly. Somehow, I got a date out of this. More »
First impressions really do matter. I’ve been on a handful of dates where the guy seemed to have disregarded that through the way he dressed. What he wore affected the date — I couldn’t seem to get my mind off how poorly he was dressed.
