It does not matter how good of a conversationalist you are, at some point in a date, you will have an awkward silence. You will be talking and talking until you come to a point in which you have both said all you are going to say about a subject and the silence holds in the air. This is nothing to be scared of. In fact, this is a delicious opportunity as long as you know how to take advantage of it. Preparing ahead of time makes it possible for you to get it right the first time as soon as you are confronted with the awkward silence. Follow these instructions and you should be able to enjoy what comes from the awkward silence you encounter.
Smile and Acknowledge the Silence
The first thing you need to do is to disarm the power of the silence. You are both feeling the tension of the silence, but it is your job as the man to make everything all right again. Rather than stammering for something to say, simply crack a smile and make a face to indicate you are feeling awkward about the situation. She will feel happy you are showing her you notice the silence and that you are willing to do something to try to change it.
Grab Her Hand
Announce You Are Going to Kiss Her
She might suspect you are going to try and kiss her, but what may really get her excited is if you do not make it a guessing game. Tell her there is nothing you can do but kiss her to break this terrible silence. As long as you do not sound corny or doubtful about what you are saying, she will be excited. Not many women are told they are going to be kissed. Even if she was maybe thinking about not letting you kiss her, this will disarm even that. She will be so taken with your confidence to say something like this she will want to know what it is like to be kissed by you.
As you lean in for the kiss, the awkward silence will have completely faded away, replaced with a new kind of excitement. This is the kind of thing which makes a first date so very exciting, because you have taken something which could have been a disaster and turned it in your favor.
