I wonder if I have anything extra special to warrant a whole book.
But I like you chapter headings here.
Advice from Amy Owens--what she calls "the three golden questions"
What's a good Friday night for you? What's a good Saturday night for you? What's a good Sunday morning for you? Amy says, " When delivered in a friendly tone, these questions won't make your date feel intimidated, interrogated or defensive. Instead, he/she will feel invited to share as much or as little as he/she cares to. Be prepared to answer the same questions yourself. Better yet, simply share this information about yourself--instead of asking questions--is an effective way to get the conversation moving."
These are good questions. However if a woman has not dated in a while, even these could be hard to answer!
I like to wind down on a Friday night but tis all depends on how the rest of the week has gone, the weather and so on.
Answer: small acts of kindness: engaging her in conversation, responding to her thoughts and ideas, praising her, opening the door for her, opening her car door (always impressive!!!), sending her a text or an email just to say hello, etc.

Great list of questions, I'd like to add one, "Have you always been this hot or have you recently found your hotness?"
I don't know about the ATTRACTION part, but you can begin to develop a relationship with a good woman in asking her a few questions about herself. These should not be too invasive, but should be directly related to her and her interests.
You can show attentiveness and caring, in careful listening, gentleness without being a "push-over," keeping your word, and being respectful of her.
Also, I don't know too many women who don't like a little laugh now and then. Make sure that you are funny though, and avoid jokes where she is the object.
I'll agree with the aforementioned answers. But I'd like to add that, for me, if there is not a MENTAL attraction, nothing else will ever happen. I will be polite and try to engage the mind but if I can't its extremely difficult for me not to feel completely and utterly bored. Another perspective I might add to shed light on an answer is that -newsflash- dating sucks. After so many traumatic, wierd, crazy, and hurtful experiences, it can be very challenging to have a fence instead of a wall. I'm sure that's true for both genders. In short, it's more important to build trust and a mental connection first.
Be present for her and listen to her. Be open and honest and be yourself. God bless you
