If you follow our guide and read our reviews, you will no doubt be successful in finding a date. Once you do so, you don’t want to blow it the first chance you get. You need some tips to help you with the first date so you don’t mess things up. You have gone through a lot to get here. The first date will determine whether or not she will want to see you again, so you need to play it smart. There are some great tips that we personally used that ensured we got a second date and much more in the end.
You first need to think very carefully about where you are going to take her. It has to be somewhere you will get a chance to get to know each other a little. That being said, you need to avoid loud places like nightclubs, movie or concert. Instead, opt for a more intimate setting. Ideally, you should be seated across from each other where you can make eye contact and actually talk. If you can get your own private booth at a restaurant, you will definitely get more points. The general idea however is to pick a place where you can get a chance to bond.
Keep things light
Another important first date rules is to keep the conversation light. Do not make her feel like she is at a job interview. Instead, keep things causal and fun. You should steer clear of any controversial topics at least until you have gotten to know each other well. This will definitely not be on the first date. Do not approach topics such as finances, politics and religion. These topics can easily cause conflict and make a date head south very fast. Instead, focus on shared interests and getting to know what the other person is about.
Do something nice for your date
You might also want to bring a small gift to the first date if you really want to make a good impression. This is a tightrope so you need to think about it very carefully. As far as first date ideas go, you don’t want to come off as too strong or too needy. Do not choose an expensive gift. You can always place your bets on a nice bouquet of flowers. You can also do well with small gifts of something that you know she likes or that you saw from her dating profile.
Finally, play the perfect gentleman. This will be your only chance to make a good impression. Make sure that you are well groomed and confident. In addition to this, make good conversation about general things that you both like. You should not be too touchy on a first date as it might scare her off. At the same time, you don’t want to come off as aloof or cold so mind your body language. Avoid crossing your arms during the date for example. With these tips, you should be able to have a good first date and hopefully score a second date.
