In 1968, an American physician, Kenneth Cooper, came up with a series of tests for physical endurance. Each had a duration of 12 minutes. For example, the further you managed to run during this time, the stronger your body and better your workout is.

Later it turned out that 12 minutes have a wider application. This amount of time is given to the firefighters to get to the source of the fire, to the hostess to make sure that the egg is cooked, or to Michael Jackson to sing his Thriller.

Recent research involving two thousand pairs proved: 12 minutes is enough to interest the partner. How to win the heart of a man during a casual acquaintance or on a first date just having twelve minutes? Let’s find out:

#8. Flattery. Men, of course, are averse to compliments, but still you need to avoid sugary flattery.

#9. Work interview. The most common mistake on the first date is when communication turns into a tennis tournament or a job interview. You should not behave like this.

#10. Speed. Do not rush things and do not do anything too fast.

#11. Joke. Excellent sense of humor is one of the sexiest traits in a woman.

#12. Second chance. Men are almost twice as liberal as women, and even if the first date failed miserably, they are ready to give a woman the second chance.
