A Successful First Date Top Tips


One of the reasons why first dates can be tricky is the because of the pressure we put on ourselves under to create a good impression. If we can relax then we can stop thinking about what to say next; we can pay attention to what our date is saying. How cool is that?

Here are some useful tips which may help you change the way you look at dating and help take the pressure off yourself:

-Neither your date’s house nor yours is an ideal place for meeting. Similarly seeking the company of others to act as a chaperone is also not a good idea. An open, busy place such as a restaurant, a bar or a mall is the safest and best place for any first meeting. Alternatively, why not meet during the day? If you can meet in the city or town centre then you could maybe become part of activity that is going on. For example a festival of some kind and it’ll give you something to talk about right off the bat.

-When going to the chosen venue you should always drive your own car. This way your date does not have to pick you up and know where you live and you know that you have a vehicle handy if you need to make a quick getaway.

-Always try to make your dating session simple and short. First dates will often make you nervous. Nervous conditions and complicated plans will not go hand in hand. Make your dating enjoyable and smooth.

-Women should take care to wear something which is not provocative or sexy. In fact it is an old concept, but care should be taken with the first impression. Your date has nothing more to go on than your appearance and how you behave. It is said that first impressions are made in the first few seconds of a meeting. Also, women are far more tuned into body language than men. So men, if you have any nervous ticks or twitches, control them.

-Always wear clothing which makes you confident and that you are comfortable with so you are not preoccupied with a too-tight waistline or a necktie that feels like you are being strangled. It is most important that you should feel comfortable enough to concentrate on the other person in front of you. The clothing you wear should also be co-ordinated and look cool. If in doubt ask a shop assistant of a clothing store on what looks good on you. It’s true they will want the sale, but most will also be willing to help as well.

-You should always be specific about the place of the date. This will enable you to plan ahead and also help to choose suitable clothing for the situation. Wearing cocktail attire to a fast food place will definitely will be uncomfortable. Guys the woman here is probably expecting you to decide where to go. So be decisive.

-And most important of all, stay in control by not drinking too much alcohol. In addition to becoming vulnerable to your surroundings, you also create a bad impression. Save the drinking until you’re more sure of each other and your surroundings are safer. For women, tell a friend where you’ll be.
