Lily Allen’s Ten Essential Tips For A Successful Date.

Lily Allen is the talk of London town. This 21-year-old singer/writer has clocked up over a million hits on her myspace and that’s before any record releases - very impressive, she’s now signed to Parlaphone.
Her ska/punk/pop inspired music really paints a picture of contemporary London with great wit. Lily’s current playlist includes The Specials, T. Rex, Blondie, early Kate Bush, Prince and Eminem.
And to top all that off she has a fun attitude too, so we asked her to take up an advisory role for our male readers. Here are ‘Lily’s Ten Essential Tips For A Successful Date.’

1. Never use cheesy lines or clichéd compliments, they tend to be more embarrassing and never have the desired effect.

2 . Don’t even think about leaving the house without brushing your teeth.

3. Don't wear bad jeans, please.

4. This one depends how many dates in you are, but by the third or fourth the introduction of presents – excluding flowers, is a terribly good look.

5. Don't talk about the following; work, previous relationships, what you did last weekend with the lads or your golfing habit. 
6. Don't overdo eye contact, but at the same time it is important to keep us interested. I'd say 15 or 20 seconds in mid-conversation is more than enough. Too much eye contact tells us you're over confident, we need you to be a little self conscious, it’s sweet and means we can manipulate you further down the line.

7. Don't accept her offer to split the bill, we all know whose responsibility that is. Thank you very much!

8. Don't even mention your mum, believe me, we don't care – not yet anyway.

9. Don't assume we want to go to really posh restaurants. I much prefer ordering Pizza , sitting on the couch watching Peep Show DVD's and having a cuddle.

10. Don't get it TWISTED aaaigght !!!!!!!!!
