When a woman visits your house, it's your opportunity to shine… but it can also get awkward FAST if you run out of things to talk about, or if she thinks you're just trying to "make a move." Here are 10 things to have in your house that not only pave the way for great conversation, but help you take things to the next level smoothly and without rejection.
1. A Zen Garden
For some reason, women love these little decorations of rocks and sand. You can get them at those international market-type stores, or online. A Zen Garden is a box that sits on you coffee table, filled with sand, some polished stones, and a comb-like rake. You use the rake to comb lines into the sand, around the stones or other objects. I realize this sounds ridiculous… but wait till you try it… and wait till you have a woman over to your house and she sees it!
2. A Musical Instrument
If you have musical talents you are in GREAT SHAPE when it comes to having a woman over at your place. Keep your instrument of choice in plain view to spark her attention. If you aren't musically talented, try something like bongos, or get your hands on a cowbell. If she's seen the popular SNL skit she'll DIE laughing… and if she hasn't you will win points for being the first person to show it to her!
3. A Pet
This one is almost common sense… everyone knows that women love animals. If you're not a dog or cat person consider getting a fish tank. Having ANY kind of a pet – even fish –subtly signals to her that you are responsible and a good provider - 2 things women are INSTINCTIVELY programmed to look for in a man. Plus feeding the fish together can be lots of fun!
4. A Collage Of Pictures
On a prominent wall, put up a collage of pictures. The collage as a whole should tell a story. For example, put up pictures of places you've been around the world – in front of the Coliseum in Rome or hiking the Grand Canyon. She'll be sure to ask lots of questions about the places you've been… maybe she will have even been to one of the places herself. Also somewhere in your house, be sure to put up pictures of your family, and pictures of you when you were younger. Women always love to see this stuff, and it always paves the way for interesting conversation.
5. Bottles Of Wine
Buy a wine rack and stock it with several bottles of wine. They don't have to be expensive; you can get decent wines for under $20. Consider joining a "Wine Of The Month" club – they'll send you 2 bottles of great wine every month, usually for around $20 total! I don't need to tell you that it's much classier to offer her a glass of wine than a beer. As a bonus, get a cool bottle opener. Look into the CO2 opener, which you can buy at wine stores. You push the needle through the cork, push the button on top, and the cork pops out like magic. That's a gadget she'll actually be impressed with…
6. Interesting Or Funny Coffee Table Books
Take a trip to a funky neighborhood and grab some interesting books to put on your coffee table. Books on dating are always good as they are sure to make for some interesting conversation. Stay away from picture books, unless they are pictures of you and your friends, which you can have made at one of the popular photo publishing websites.
7. Balance Board
A balance board is a skateboard-like object that sits on top of a roller – the object is to get onto it and keep your balance. It's incredibly fun. Skaters and surfers use this for practice because it mimics the motion. People who get really good can do all sorts of impressive tricks. She'll see it and want to try it because it sounds challenging, yet fun. When she gets on it, she'll grab onto your hands for balance. Nice!
8. A Cool Cooking Appliance
Here's a great idea. Have at least one unique cooking appliance in your kitchen. I'm talking about things like a Panini Press, an Espresso Machine, or Ice Cream Maker. Having one of these hint to her that there is more to you than meets the eye… and that you can do more in the kitchen than make toast. Learn a few recipes (it's a lot simpler than it sounds), then invite her over in the future to cook dinner together.
9. An Interactive Video Game
It used to be that a video game system was a major turn off to women – she'd imagine losing her man to hours of nerd-fests with other zombie-like males. However, recently videogames have become much more interactive and fun for everyone. They can't resist Dance Dance Revolution or playing an instrument on "Guitar Hero" or "Rock Band"… and don't forget all of the fun games on the Nintendo Wii. Play against each other and come up with some funny "win-win" wagers for the loser… such as a 5 minute massage.
10. Something Homemade
Somewhere in your house, have something that YOU made. Either a sculpture, a piece of art, or furniture. This will indicate that you have some sort of talent, and if it's not very flattering, you can always make a joke about it, explaining that this is why you are NOT a carpenter. Either way, have fun with it, and she will too.
