So, you have been man-hunting and finally, this cool dude you have dreamt of for quite sometime decides to ask you out on a date, are you going to blow it off? The answer is obviously no! The first date is a determinant for subsequent dates. So, if the first date goes wrong, say goodbye to your knight in glittering armor, hence why we put up this list of first date tips.
It is important to leave a good first impression on the first date. Though these are first date tips for ladies, don’t worry, we will make another for guys. Everyone deserves to behave well during a date, the gender doesn’t matter.
Talking About Your Family Problems
Obviously, you guys should talk about each other during the first date. It’s a moment to know what you both like and if there is going to be another date. The first date is not quite the time to talk about your younger brother’s exam fee, your father’s hospital bill, your rent, your mother’s crumbling business and more. It is not a time to show what liability you will be to the guy when he eventually decides to take a step further. It is important to save those details of your life and focus on getting to know the guy.
Ordering What You Cannot Finish
During a first date. When ordering a meal, Order what you know. While it is important to try new things out, make sure you understand what you are ordering. Also, make sure you can finish what you ordered for.
Come With Money
Whether your date has agreed to pay for everything or not, never go on a date without money. While ordering, order for what you can pay for even though it looks like your date will pay. Things might turn around for the bad and you might be stuck, but if you have your own money with you, you will be fine.
Ask Intelligent Questions
An example of an unintelligent question is asking a guy how much he earns. You will come off as someone who is probably just after the guy’s money. Ask him what he does for fun, ask him about his job, which inspired his career choice. Ask him intelligent questions and if he asks you questions in return, answer them intelligently.
Don’t Order Take-outs For Your Friends And Family At Home
Some people do this. They order after meal take-outs for their friends. Remember, you are trying to create a good first impression and ordering take-outs after a meal isn’t one. The purpose of the date is to get to know each other. Unless you are familiar with your date or you are already in a relationship, ordering after meal take-outs will make him think you are greedy, even if you aren’t.
Wear What You Are Comfortable In
Most ladies try to appear slimmer than they look or taller. Some ladies even go to the extent of wearing a blood-sucking waist trainer that they can’t breathe comfortably in. Wear something comfortable. Stay away from extremely tight clothes, find something that fits. The consequence of looking other than what you actually look like – physically is that your date sees you as an insecure person.
If you are preparing for your first date, we hope you found our first date tips useful. Don’t hoard this information, share with your friends and have a nice day ahead.
