Ever wonder what a woman is thinking on your first date, after the first kiss, or after sex? Read on to get a glimpse into what women are thinking during every step of the game.

On a First Date

Even on a first date you might be focused on getting her into bed, but she'll be thinking of lots of things before the "moment of truth" is even close.

  • You are five minutes late. Not a good sign.
  • Okay, you're here. You look cute. But you're going to have to do something about that hair.
  • I wonder how he thinks I look. Hopefully not like a total slut.
  • If you don't ask me a question in the next 5 seconds, I don't think this is going to work out.
  • I have to think of something flirtatious to say.
  • Am I talking too much?

Before a First Kiss

Try to tune in--she might be giving you signals to go faster--or slower.

  • I am making this really easy, dude. Your job is to get the signals.
  • Why hasn't he kissed me yet? Doesn't he like me?
  • I hope he's a good kisser.
  • Okay, here he goes. Finally.

After a First Kiss

You may be in the moment or thinking of your next physical move, but she is thinking of other things beyond that first kiss.

  • I wonder if we'll be exclusive.
  • Is this going to stop at kissing or are we going to keep going?
  • I wonder what he's like in bed.

The First Night Spent Together

The moment of truth is almost here. She might be worrying about how she looks (no matter how hot you think she is).

  • Am I sure I really want to have sex with him? Is he the right guy?
  • What if he's no good in bed?
  • I'm glad I worked out yesterday.
  • I hope he keeps the lights off because maybe I don't look that good.
  • I wonder if we'll get married.

After Sex

What you view as a casual hook up may hold a lot more meaning for her. Women seek more emotional connection than you think--even though they might not say anything about that.

  • He might be the one.
  • Does he like me?
  • What did you think of me in bed?
  • Should I have had sex with him so soon? This didn't work out last time.
  • Will my friends like him?
  • Will he call me again?

Tips for Success with Women

There are a few things that really trigger women and could get you locked out of a future with her, even if all you want is a second date. Here are a few tips to keep in mind:

  • Don't be late.
  • Don't only talk about yourself.
  • Be a good listener. Women like to be listened to and engaged--not simply agreed with.
  • Follow up. Call her the next day no matter how casual the hook-up seemed.
  • If she asks you to meet her friends and you are interested in her, do it. You can't go forward with her unless you have the stamp of approval.

Remember that women tend to be global thinkers. As a guy you may be thinking, "Hot babe, fun date." And she's thinking, "Cute guy, fun date, will my friends like him? Maybe he's THE ONE."  Women are multi-dimensional creatures, often thinking way beyond the moment and way beyond that moment of your first kiss.
