First dates can be so much fun! If you feel nervous about going on first date, you’re not alone. Plenty of other single people feel nervous during first dates, especially if it has been years since they had launched new relationships. First dates should be focused on finding out if the two of you have enough chemistry to warrant a second date. A successful first date is a prelude to a successful relationship. Here are six tips to help you have an enjoyable and memorable first date.
Dates should be fun, especially first dates. Your attitude towards your date will have a huge impact on the connection that the two of you develop. Smile, make eye contact, and be approachable during your time together. Nobody wants to date someone who is grumpy and disengaged. Treat this experience with enthusiasm, even if you instinctively feel during your time together that you’re not compatible. Who knows, maybe your date will have a cute sibling or friend they could introduce you to.
Talk About Relevant Issues
Focus on the future, not on your past. Your first date is not an opportunity to talk about why your past relationships did not work out. Your date doesn’t want to hear about the people who you used to see. And, if your date IS more interested in hearing about your past than talking about your present relationship goals, then that’s not a good sign. Both of you should be concentrating on getting to know each other’s present circumstances and goals instead of each other’s prior unions.
Pour On The Compliments
There is something nice to say about everyone. Your match will surely visibly brighten up if pay him or her a genuine compliment. Find something sincerely kind to say; it could be about your date’s clothes, smile, eyes, voice, points of view. Just pick something nice to say, and keep the tone of the date light-hearted.
It’s easier to receive compliments and appreciation from who you are meeting when you are dressed nicely. Even if your first date is in a casual setting like a public park, do your best to look tidy and put together. How you dress can affect the way you feel. When you dress in casual clothes, you will feel more laid back. But on a first date, you want to feel on top of your game! Dress to impress your date and yourself.
Meet In A Public Setting
Under no circumstances should you meet at one of your homes on the first date because compatibility and trust have not been established yet. There are many different places where you can have your first face to face introduction, and a public place should be a first choice. A shopping mall, public park, cafe, or restaurant are good places to meet for the first time. There’s less pressure and more protection in an open setting where other people are around.
You really don’t know this new person well enough to know if you can trust overindulging together. Also, the individual you are seeing might be a non-drinker, and might be uncomfortable watching you drink in front of them. During the date, you can casually ask your companion if he or she drinks alcohol. When your question is answered, you’ll have a better idea about your date’s food and beverage preferences. Always remember that not everyone thinks and acts the way that you do. Be on your best behaviour, and demand nothing less than the same from your date.
