You are reading this article because you would probably want to make a great first impression in your first date or set right a date that went bad. It doesn’t matter what kind of reason this is, but there are certain per-requisites that you should know about that you must follow before going for a date. How you present yourself at your first date is really important and it can possibly make or break your chances. How you present yourself and behave during the date is what defines your personality. So let’s take a look at the things you must look into before going for a date.
Tips For A Successful First Date
Appearance & Odor – The first thing that you must look into is your appearance. If this is your first date, then you wouldn’t want to enter the restaurant unshaven, smelly and looking dirty, right? So, take a nice long bath before you get ready for your date. Condition your hair, use a nice body wash and all the other blah blahs you must use to make yourself look and smell nice. Bad breath stands at the top of list when it comes to turn offs. So before your date, gargle your mouth with water and mouthwash and then floss your teeth. Use a mouth spray or eat gum before you enter the restaurant just to make sure.
Don’t Be Late & Don’t Be Too Early – If you are meeting her at a particular place, then don’t forget to show up exactly on time because if you don’t, that person will assume the worst case scenarios and even come to the conclusion that you have stood her up. And you do not want that to happen! Being late for a date can turn out to be such a pain in the ass for both of you. If you are picking her up from your house, then make sure that you reach at least 5 minutes before the mentioned time. However, do not turn up too early and never turn up too late because either way, you will be pissing her off.
Be a Gentleman & Be a Romantic – Every girl likes her guy to be a gentleman. If you are picking her up, walk up to her house and give her a bouquet of flowers or a box of chocolates or anything that you think she might like. When she opens the door, compliment her! Women love compliments. You can also surprise her by not telling her where you are going. When you get to the place, hold the door open for her, pull her chair out and make her feel comfortable. Whatever you do, do not order for her! Let her order her own food.
Be a Good Listener, But Don’t Just Listen – It is indeed true that girls like those who listen sincerely, but not those who just listen and not talk. Go ahead and ask some questions, crack some jokes, talk about anything you would like and ask her to talk about anything she likes. Girls don’t like people who just talks about themselves! Take a time out to get to know her too and make it a point to take an interest in what she has to say.
When the food comes, do not let the conversation dry up. Keep talking or ask questions or tell her an interesting story. Offer her something to drink and make it a point to order dessert. Don’t be a miser when it comes to buying food.
Well, that’s pretty much it! Keep in mind every bit of point that we have asked you to note down, implement it and most of all, enjoy the date.
