Have you read any e-books? What were some examples and did you enjoy the experience? When a guy first meets you, he knows you are on your best behavior and will be for a while, so he&#39;s looking at certain characteristics that give him quick insight into what you&#39;d be like with your guard down. Here, four things that tell him more than you think.<br/> <br/> 1. Your Friends<br/> You can work your butt off to come across well — hot outfit, big smile, witty conversation — but you can&#39;t do the same for your friends. Dudes know this, so if you&#39;re out with pals, men look at them as representatives of all your personality traits — including the not-so-good ones. &quot;I met a girl who seemed sweet at a bar. We chatted, and she invited me to hang with her friends,&quot; says Stan, 26. &quot;Within 10 minutes, I realized they were all gossipy drama queens, and I bolted.&quot; If your buds aren&#39;t on the same win-him-over page as you are, head to your own corner of the bar.<br/> <br/> 2. Your Laugh<br/> Guys pride themselves on being funny, so they look for girls who can appreciate their sense of humor. However, there&#39;s such a thing as laughing too much. &quot;I went out for drinks with one girl who cracked up at everything I said, even if it wasn&#39;t funny,&quot; says Adam, 27. &quot;It got on my nerves so much that I made an excuse to leave early.&quot;<br/> <br/> 3. Your Drink of Choice<br/> It doesn&#39;t matter whether you choose wine, beer, or a cocktail. What matters is that you have a compelling reason for choosing the type of drink ... and wanting to get totally wasted doesn&#39;t count. &quot;One night, I met a girl who really appreciated beer,&quot; says Joey, 27. &quot;When she explained why she prefers an IPA over a pilsner, I fell in love.&quot; Being able to defend your choice shows that you&#39;re smart enough to know what you like.<br/> <br/> 4. Cell-Phone Usage<br/> You&#39;re having a great convo with a guy when you get a text. What you do next — ignore it or write a response before putting the phone on the table so it&#39;s easier to get to next time — tells him how you&#39;d treat him in the future. &quot;I met a girl at a coffee shop, and within 15 minutes, her phone rang,&quot; says Seth, 33. &quot;She just let it go to voice mail, which made me feel like, at that moment, I was her first priority.&quot;
