from my limited experience i say just be yourself and don't expect anything. The biggest downfall is when you meet a girl and start saying things like i can see myself in a relationship or this and that.

Nobody can see in the future, just go your date and be real but don't expect this girl to like you. And if she doesn't then its her problem not yours.

Make her laugh. Make some witty comments and show her you're not intimidated by her looks. And this:

I call it the extra persistent game. Where you go out of your way to let the girl know she's the $hit and you would worship her.

is not okay. She'll let you worship her, i.e. buying her dinner, clothes, rent, whatever, if you give her that power. If she's truly that hot I'm sure she's had plenty of dudes worshipping her, and you know how many actually probably got physical with her? I'd guess very few, if any. Don't be another pushover.

I agree with a lot of posters that said you need to have confidence and be yourself. You migt get this girl to absolutely fall for you because of the fact that you were being yourself. Girls like her probably have guys throw themselves at her constantly and trying to do whatever it takes to please her, but they never succeed. The secret with girls like her is to be yourself, have confidence and not be intimidated by her beauty. When she sees that you are man enough to be yourself around her, and are not intimidated, that will attract her to you more then if you tried to act like someone else to impress her. It will allow her to be herself around you when she sees that you are open enough around her.

Just because she is beautiful does not mean she does not have insecurities. Girls that are beautiful always feel like they have to put on a facade when they are out on a date with the guy so that they can keep his view of her intact if you understand what I am saying. When guys come at them trying to impress them too much, then the girl feels like she is suffocated to where she has to act a certain way, and I gurantee you that guy does not have a second date. The guy that truly makes her feel comfrontable and lets her open up and gets her to her comfort zone will get a second date.

Try not to be totally into her, and giving her a sign on the first date that you really like her. Be your casual self, and see the way she reacts to it. You can only be the judge of the situation once you are already there.

Yes, if you can make a girl laugh, you basically have her by being a friend or more.

you need to get your self esteem up. If she is going out with you then you already did something right.

If she is going on a date with you, then obviously she isn't out of your league.

There is no girl "out of your league."

This is a popular misconception.

Every woman needs different things to make her feel special and secure.

You might not be what a certain girl is looking for, but never put women on a pedestal like that--that's how you'll ruin the relationship before it starts.

Confidence is key. IF she's as good looking as you describe, then she'll be able to tell pretty quickly whether or not you're going to be a stepping stool or a stud.

Treat her just like you'd treat an ugly girl.

Rub one out before you leave for the date so you aren't on charge trying to get in her pants. Don't even act like you like her like that and keep the compliments to the beginning and end of the date (don't go overboard).

Don't try to sleep with her even if you think you can. One of the best ways to make a good impression on her is to set yourself apart so don't sweat her just act normal and a little (little) stand off ish.

I am very confident about who I am , and horrible at one liners to a babe..
But if locked into a date per say :
This is always my thinking , This lady is out of my league !!!!!!!!!
I kid her she is diamond , and that she is any mans catch...
while I am thinking she is mine to concour..... so I act my self , ask her questions , and NEVER put on a act. (while she is on my arm!!!)
But I'll drop a hint about my values , see if she bites ,, and aproach the topic of money as being a conservative with enjoying fine things.
If you feel a little insecure about money around her .. wrap about 10 singles in a wad of four 20 dollar bills ,so if you pull it out , she'll look and see your comfortable.
Ironically IMO buying the world in the first date , isn't as important as a walk after the date and mentally connecting.
Most 7,8,9's rely on their looks --- in other words find who is in there.
Babe's that roll in cash from birth , will expect it in life , not look for a dead beat hillybilly like me
'
Forgot to mention , if you had enough chats , and she's a lady more so than tomboy , depending on where you pick her up (her place) ... u can bring a flower (not flowers) It's the thought , not the amount that counts .

It's more about your mentality and magnetism than anything else.

The man pictured here is not a heart throb and he's the biggest pimp in America (or he was).
