List Rules Vote up the moves that, like the bend-and-snap, work every time.

The goal of a successful date is for both parties to leave wanting more, and these dating moves for guys can work wonders if used properly. Dating itself embodies a sort of game, but one where you and your partner are (or should be) on the same team. Just because something's been known as one of the best dating tricks for men doesn't mean it will succeed without fail. More than anything, earnestness is key to ensuring these dating moves for men work; women are smart enough to know you're playing, and even if they fall for an empty move, you play her and yourself.

While some of these smooth dating moves for men appear obvious, you can never really know what people think constitutes effective dating, so take note. Things as simple as paying attention, culinary skills, and an interest in facial cleansing offer little ways to enhance the romance of a date. In the end, you should strive to be your most honest self, as long as your honest self naturally performs at least a few of the moves below already. If not, perhaps you should concern yourself with self-help instead of a significant other.
