No matter how many times you’ve dated, when it’s your first time to date a person, you’re sure to feel butterflies in your stomach once more, worry about what to say and what not to, what to wear and all those other problems associated with dating. But anyhow, worrying is normal. If you don’t worry, you might become overconfident and that’s not a good thing.
To ensure that you’ll have a hassle-free first date, here’s a checklist to keep and guide you from the moment your eyes meet till the time he tells you goodnight.
Dating Tip #1 – Be Prompt
Say what you want about the fashionable late excuse but promptness is a virtue and if you’re dating someone who actually thinks less of you just because you’re on time, dump him! But chances are, a lot of men would be impressed if the woman they’re dating arrive on time or is dressed up and ready to go the moment they knock on the door.
Dating Tip #2 – Dress Appropriately but Dress Well
It’s hard to find the balance between dressing well and dressing appropriately so if you have difficulties finding the perfect dress, never hesitate to ask your friends for help. It’s imperative to dress appropriately when dating because you surely don’t want to stand out in a crowd for the wrong reasons.
On the other hand, you want to dress well when dating because you do want to stand out in a crowd for the right reasons and make your man proud.
Dating Tip #3 – Let Him Lead but Take the Initiative As Well
Okay, I know, here I am with another contradictory dating advice but really, it’s quite a sensible dating tip so let me explain why.
First, you have to let him lead because when dating, it’s usually the guy who calls the shots so let him execute whatever dating plans he have. When it comes to conversation, however, that’s the time to take the initiative because the only way for your date to become successful is if both persons are talking and opening up.
Dating Tip #4 – Be Assertive, Not Aggressive
It’s nice if a woman knows what she wants and goes for it but a woman who ignores all the signs and simply barges in, uncaring of what other people would think, is definitely not a woman anyone would ordinarily want to date.
Dating Tip #5 – Be Attuned to the Signs
If you think that your date went phenomenally well and you want to end it with a kiss, be alert to body movements and see whether he want to end things with a kiss as well. If he does but he’s hesitating, that’s the time you could make the first move.
