The feeling that you go through on your first date is a mixed one with both excitement and nervousness. You are excited to meet that one person and nervous about whether you will be able to handle it all or not. There are some basic things which you should be sure of before you leave the premises to guarantee a successful night, both for you and the person attending.
What people generally do on their first dates is that they try to fake their personality as someone which they are actually not. Some might act extra classy while others may act extra intellectual, either way, they are just ruining the whole essence of that time. One thing which surely impresses anyone is the originality there is in you.
First dates can be nervous, but you should be careful that it doesn’t show in your body language or on your face. Confidence makes your personality sexier than anything else and will give you a good morale boost as well. That person certainly did have an interest in you which is why you both reached to this first outing, so you should not in any way feel that you lack anything.
Your outfit and styling will basically make the first impression on him or her. First dates are usually all about physical attraction and sense of intimacy. Deeper bonds are formed, later on, so on your first date you should think and choose your attire smartly.
The worst thing that you can do on a date, especially if you are a guy, is to show up late and keep the other person waiting. No one wants to make a fool out of themselves waiting in the restaurant and facing all those weird stares from everyone. Showing up exactly on time is another way of showing respect to the other person.
If you are in a situation where your first date is with someone you haven’t ever met, then it is recommended that you plan it in a public place. Also, before leaving you should inform some of your close friends or family members, so they know you’re out with someone.
If in any way you start to feel uncomfortable with that person or you feel that your safety is threatened then you should always have a backup plan. You should have someone’s number on speed dial so they can come for help. Or if not anything, you should just smartly excuse yourself from that table.
You should never go out on a date without any money. This goes especially for all the women out there who should realize that they are part of the modern era and that them paying the bill is no longer a taboo. If not the bill then you might need to run home in a cab, so for that too you’ll be needing money. Money, therefore, should never be kept on chance.
