Tips on your First Date
You are going to find great number of tips you can try on your first date. Making a very good impression on your first date is very important in starting a relationship, If the first date goes wrong, then the opportunity may never present itself again. So it is better to make it on that very first date. So many people find it hard to make a great impression, resulting in embarrassing or uncomfortable circumstances.
It’s totally normal and understandable to be nervous on a first date. You don’t know this person yet, and you have no idea how things are going to play out. It’s better to relax your mind, be yourself. And again, that doesn’t mean you need to act like you’re on a job interview. Most important thing is, you are calm. It wouldn’t be hurt if you put on a smile and be playful a bit. Here are some great tips for you so you can create a lasting impression.
1: Making an appointment
One of the best tips on your first date is to Fix a date well in advance before the first date. You are more likely to get a positive answer when you put her or his other schedules into consideration, and also to give her or him some time to prepare for it. Think about what time will be most appropriate. I would prefer Wednesday, Thursday or during the weekend. But hey, that’s up to you and her to decide. However, choose a date when you guys are not occupied. So no one should be in a hurry to leave. That way, you guys will have more than enough time for yourselves.
2: Choosing the right first date location
Among all the tips when making your first date. This is in fact the most important one. It’s best when you make it a relaxing date. The key to a first date is choosing the right location. The place doesn’t have to be an expensive or a fancy restaurant. Rather, it should have a romantic atmosphere and feeling to it. Also, you want to be able to concentrate on her, not everything else going on around you. For example, a nice and simple quiet restaurant with soft music playing in the background will do, or an open place with fresh cool breeze like the park or perhaps, under a tree.
3: Prepare for a productive or engaging conversation
Girls don’t like to be with boring guys, they like guys who can engage them continually in conversation, make them laugh or smile, and try not to complain about negative issues. Furthermore, try to keep conversations equal. Introduce engaging topics, for example: About the weather, movies, sports, favorite foods. Etc. And be quick to switch conversations when a topic gets boring.
4: Present yourself in a charming way
A vital step is how you present yourself on that first date. Dress to impress and try not to be too formal. In a way that reflects your personal style. Maybe something casual like a button down or a polo shirt, paired with khakis, or dress pants. Don’t be nervous or uneasy and dont be in a hurry or haste. Be calm.
5: Be Truthful and Sincere
Don’t be deceitful. You shouldn’t lie or deliberately hide things even if you don’t have to reveal everything on the first date. If your date wants to know something, answer it. After all, you guys are trying to determine compatibility. Our honesty improves relationships, and allows us to know about our weaknesses, which brings in room for improvement. Additionally, It also helps others into making good decisions when asked for our input. Trust me, this is one of the best tip ever, while on your first date.
6: Be Modest on your first date
Don’t brag about your achievements, possessions or abilities. For example, I earn so much money, everyone wants to be my friend. I am this, I am that etc. Try to be show humility. Bragging and arrogance turn out to be by far the most common turn offs on a first date or any subsequent date for that matter and besides it’s annoying. I am not saying you should undermine your achievements and your self-worth, rather do it in a subtle way and not excessively.
7: Things you must try to avoid on your first date
First date is not about you but both of you. Avoid answering so many calls, if possible put your phone on silent. If you spend so much time on your phone, your date will think you’re setting up another date for later, or checking the time because you’re bored.
Furthermore, try not to be so inquisitive. It’s one step at a time, try to take things slowly. Remember it’s your first date, and there are more dates to come.. Finally, don’t be judgemental. Being judgemental hurts people. It treats a person as if they are not good enough to be treated with kindness and respect. Most importantly, We are all with flaws.
8: Give good compliments
This is another important factor. Girls like to be complimented. But try not to over do it. Compliment her on her clothes, hair, character and when she says something interesting. If possible give her a gift like a flower. She’ll also find it adorable that you still get butterflies when you see her. It is important to let your girlfriend know how excited you are to see her every day, no matter how often you spend time together.
9: Don’t talk about your Ex
Talking so much about your ex in your discussion makes your date feel less important, thinking you’ve not gotten over your past. If you start a new relationship, you want to know about each other, not your exes. You don’t want to bring up your ex and put your whole life in terms of a relationship that’s over. If you do that, you probably shouldn’t be dating in the first place.
5 reasons why you should never talk about your ex on your first date
- Women may be supportive and loving partners, but they are not therapist
- It brings comparison between her and your ex
- It makes you weaker or less effective
- It’s always boring to talk about your ex. In addition, It makes her lose interest in your conversation
- They will question if you’re over your ex
10: At the end of the first date
Take or walk her back home. If possible, her doorstep. Give her a kiss. depends on the mood, either a kiss on the cheek or on the back of her palm. Appreciate her for coming and tell her how much you enjoyed the date. Finally, tell her you would like to see her again, set up another date, and then follow up with a call the next day. She’ll get the hint that you really enjoyed her company. Most importantly, she will be like: This guy is seriously into me.
I hope you find the tips on your first date very helpful.
