If you don’t want a second date, don’t say you’ll call her. You’ll end up feeling bad and she might feel hurt. Just say, “I had a great time tonight”. If you do want to see her again, don’t play games. Yes, in films they always leave it a couple of days to contact each other, but this is 2016. If you don’t contact her within a couple of days, you’ll seem like you couldn’t be bothered, or didn’t enjoy the date. The sooner you tell her what a great time you had, the better.
When you enter into a new relationship, it’s no secret you’re bringing former boyfriends along with you. But a younger guy likely is packing less. “Men can have preconceived notions about women and relationships based on past experiences,” says Samantha Daniels, a professional matchmaker and president of Samantha's Table Matchmaking. “The younger and less experienced he is, the more open he’ll be in his relationship with you.”

I see, reading my comment again (ironically, not even noticing that it was my comment at first...) how you could get the impression that this "image" a man portrays is just that: attitudinal, and based on charisma, or charm or the ability to speak with people easily. However, this was not my point. The crux of my post was to define success and define one's self through pursuit of the things that lead to that definition of success. There is far more to that than just having charisma. Sure, there are guys out there who can buy a coffee and read a newspaper and make themselves sound worldly and accomplished - as there are people with multiple degrees working on cutting edge technology who fear their work is boring, and choose to be more introverted and humble.
Since people dating often do not know each other well, there is the risk of violence, including date rape. According to one report, there was a 10% chance of violence between students happening between a boyfriend and girlfriend, sometimes described as "intimate partner violence", over a 12–month period.[65] Another estimate was that 20% of U.S. high school girls aged 14–18 were "hit, slapped, shoved or forced into sexual activity".[66] There is evidence that violence while dating isn't limited to any one culture or group or religion, but that it remains an issue in different countries.[67] It is usually the female who is the victim, but there have been cases where males have been hurt as well. Sara McCorquodale suggests that women meeting strangers on dates meet initially in busy public places, share details of upcoming dates with friends or family so they know where they'll be and who they'll be with, avoid revealing one's surname or address, and conducting searches on them on the Internet prior to the date.[68] One advisor suggested: Don't leave drinks unattended; have an exit plan if things go badly; and ask a friend to call you on your cell phone an hour into the date to ask how it's going.[68] In some regions of the world, such as Chechnya, bride stealing is fairly common, enough to provoke leader Ramzan Kadyrov to urge young men to use persuasion instead.[69] Kadyrov advised:
Om du har klagomål eller förfrågningar kan du kontakta oss här. Om vi inte har möjlighet att hjälpa dig med ditt klagomål, kan du lämna det till EU:s Tvistlösningsplattform på nätet (http://ec.europa.eu/odr). Vänligen observera att om du lämnar ett klagomål till EU:s Tvistlösningorgan utan att först ha skickat det till oss, kommer det inte tas i beaktning.
When asked what they like to talk about in their first conversation with a women, most men said hobbies or interests. Other popular topics were family and general flirtatious banter. But save religion or current events for later. Even though they’re great things to talk about once you’ve had a date or two, most men are more interested in getting to about you in a first conversation.
It takes quite some effort as a woman to be fit and many just don't have the time due to job/career and/or full-time education. Hormonal contraceptives may make it even harder. Have you tried women who are maybe not the top 10% with regards to looks? You might be surprised to find really good quality women there who haven't been on the cock carousel, who can actually cook, who aren't full of themselves. I know plenty intelligent women like this.
Mystery Date is a board game from the Milton Bradley Company, originally released in 1965 and reissued in 1970, 1999, and in 2005, whose object is to be ready for a date by acquiring three matching color-coded cards to assemble an outfit. The outfit must then match the outfit of the date at the "mystery door". If the player's outfit does not match the date behind the door, the door is closed and play continues. The game has been mentioned, featured, or parodied in several popular films and television shows.

Teenagers and college-aged students tend to avoid the more formal activity of dating, and prefer casual no-strings-attached experiments sometimes described as hookups. It permits young women to "go out and fit into the social scene, get attention from young men, and learn about sexuality", according to one report by sociologists.[146] The term hookup can describe a wide variety of behavior ranging from kissing to non-genital touching to make-out sessions; according to one report, only about one third of people had sexual intercourse.[146] A contrary report, however, suggested there has been no "sea change" in sexual behavior regarding college students from 1988 onwards, and that the term hookup itself continued to be used to describe a variety of relationships, including merely socializing or passionate kissing as well as sexual intercourse.[147]
Another problem with consumer culture's impact on dating is the dehumanizing effect of people seeing themselves as the "product" instead of the consumer. In a market system, a product's value is determined by the demand for it. Therefore, men who don't perceive a high level of demand for themselves come to view themselves as having little or no personal value.

4.  European men are comfortable with women, which leads to respect for women. Perhaps this has to do with their upbringing, where it’s very normal for boys and girls to play and intermingle together. They grow up developing friendships with the opposite sex and in turn, develop more empathy and understanding of the opposite sex. In American culture, there is a clear segregation of the sexes, boys play with boys and do boy things and girls do the same. Then these boys grow up and are exposed to the opposite sex in an abrupt, often sexualized way.  The consequence of this is a lack of understanding of women, a lack of comfort and often, a lack of respect.
