Tips for First Date

By on July 4, 2014

If you are going to date someone for the first time then you must take care of few things which can make your date superb and your partner will also feel comfortable with you. Here are some important tips for first date:

Dress well: Dress well for your date and smell nice. Make sure to brush your teeth and smell okay. Smile and talk nicely. Think about how you would want your partner to feel about you, and be this person.

Don’t get ready too early: Your clothes will get messy and you will look like you just got out of bed. Have a shower, plan your outfit, hair, make-up at least a day before. 

Make a good impression: If he is picking you up, wave, say hello and smile. This should instantly make him think that you are feeling ok with him.

Have a nice talk: Make lots of eye contact. Do not stare eerily but do engage in the conversation by looking at them and letting them know you are listening. Be a good listener, but don’t be too quiet. Tell them about your family life, your job or anything else that you have some good stories on.

Be polite: Behave politely on your first date. Do not say rude things and mean things. Don’t criticize his opinion that is a big turn off but be sure to keep your own as well.

Be present: Show interest in your date and be an active listener. Do not let it be all about you.Compliment him on how he looks. He will compliment you back. But do not over-do it.

Relax: Do not put pressure on yourself to be witty, smart or alluring. Don’t get caught up in the version of yourself you wish you were. He wants to date the real you.

Keep it short: Don’t let your date last too long. Make your first date no longer than 45 minutes, max. That will keep the investment relatively low for both of you, which is really important if one person is not feeling it. And if you are both attracted to each other then you can meet again.

Gifts:It can be a very nice idea to give your date a small gift on the first date. Don’t go crazy on something expensive just a nice little token like a single rose is fine.
