Need some expert help? This is the article for you. I shall be your dating guide/ guru, and provide you with tips needed to ensure a successful date! All you have to do now is study and follow my tips below, and you will be enjoying your dating life more.
It is a known fact that the first date is the most important. The first date can determine the outcome of all the others after. The first date is an excellent opportunity to show your date what you are made of and how different you are to the others. Don’t forget the main objective of a date is to show your date why you are a better choice to go out with in the future than someone else. Trust me first impressions count for a lot. On a first date personal hygiene and grooming is a must! In anticipation of any date, try going for a hair cut, investing in a new outfit, checking that your teeth and nails are presentable!
A first date is always a nerve racking event, but there’s nothing more attractive than a bit of self-confidence. When it comes to conversation, stay in your comfort zone by coming up with a few topics that you can talk about easily so you’re not out of your depth too early. But it’s a delicate balance. No one wants to be the guy who brags on about his comic book collection all night, or what a pro he is on the bench press. That’s a big no. If in doubt, ask your date about themselves and go from there. That’s always the safe way to go.
Manners Maketh Man & Woman
One very important tip when on a date is, NEVER FORGET YOUR MANNERS! A little etiquette goes a long way. If she looks nice, tell her that! Maybe open the door as she walks through, or offer your arm as she steps down from the curb – but play it cool and don’t go too overboard! Also try remember their most prominent feature. Trust me its useful! Not to forget to say please and thank you at opportune moments. When you’re comfortable, maybe test the waters by leaning in a little closer as she speaks – if she backs away, well, it’s probably not going well.
Keep It Casual
First dates, don’t have to be a burden, or stress. Always remember to try and keep it casual, or keep it real. Not sure about your date? Try taking the person somewhere you are comfortable. it’s pretty obvious, your agenda, if you’ve chosen somewhere that’s just around the corner from your pad. Try for somewhere that’s convenient for both of you to get to. One of your favorite bars is a good choice. Drinks are fine for a first date, just don’t over do it.
It’s perfectly ok to keep first or second dates to weeknights, but anything after the third outing together should be for the weekend. Otherwise, they’re going to wonder what you’re doing that’s so much more interesting than them. Or, worse, who.
Don’t Be Affraid To Ask For Advice
If you’re a little clueless or just want to make sure you’re on the right track, don’t be afraid to ask your friends for a few pointers. See what they think of the outfit you’re planning to wear, or the venue you want to take your date to. Getting advice is not a bad thing. Everyone needs help sometimes. That could save you being turned down, or things not going according to plan.
Eyes On Your Date
Remember, when you’re on a date with someone, they should the centre of attention. Ask them about themselves and pay attention to their answers. And don’t try to get a sneaky look at your watch or phone – and that blonde sitting at the bar who you just checked out? Yep, they saw that, too.
Offer To Pay
If it’s a first date, it won’t do you any harm to pay – or at least offer. Arguing about who should pick up the bill is not a good look and it’s hardly going to give the best first impression. Then again, it’s perfectly fine to level the score a bit if you end up seeing each other regularly.
