When it comes to dating and relationships, no matter how much we discuss and debate, almost everyone has some unique experience to share and, in some cases, misadventures. But honestly, it won’t be wrong to say that there is nobody who has had a perfect date. Having said that, it is needless to say that your first date actually makes or breaks a deal since it paves the way for future dates.
If things go haywire on the first date, then you can only hope for her to agree for a second chance. Guys, realise that women are very particular about certain things and when you invite her for a date, you have to ensure that you make a lasting impression on her if you want things to work out between you two.
So, we bring to you some tips on how you can rock your first date:
1. Looks That Can Kill
Is your crush super hot and sexy? If you secretly nodded, then for you looks matter. Women too go by this notion and there is no harm in that. So, at least for your first date, you can say goodbye to your grizzly bear look and go dapper by trimming your beard or grooming that stubble.
2. Model For Your Own Clothes
‘I don’t give a f*uck about life’ printed T-shirts might be cool when you go out with friends but swap the situation with a date and you will throw it back in the cupboard. In simple words, go well-dressed for your first date.
3. A Gentleman Is A Winner At Heart
She might be a strong-headed independent woman and you might believe in equality, but that does not kill chivalry. Honestly, you asked her out for a date, so it’s obvious that you have to make her feel special. Plus don’t be rude to others present there. Being a gentleman is not that hard.
4. Mirroring Her Can Work In Your Favour
It’s a known fact, when two people think or act alike it means they are in sync with each other. You can try mirroring some of her actions like the way she sips wine or how she speaks to the waiter. Find her joke funny even if it’s not that funny. This will make her feel that you two have similarities. But don’t confuse mirroring with imitating.
5. Tell Her Something About Yourself
Okay while this sounds similar to an interview question, don’t answer it like a candidate appearing for a job interview. She is not interested in knowing how evil your boss is or how much you earn. You can share your career and future interests but don’t share the minutest details on the first date.
6. Ask About Her
I am sure you guys are good at finding out about her preferences and likes or dislikes. But there might be some things that your research did not tell you. So try talking to her about her life, ambitions and things you feel are relevant and want to know more about.
7. Don’t Bring Up Commitment Issues
There can be two kinds of issues—first being that you want to get into a serious relationship and second, you don’t want anything serious. But the first date is not enough to even think about this, let alone ask. So DO NOT discuss this on your first date.
8. ‘Dont choose an expensive place’ Its not A Good Idea
I am not asking you to take her to a five-star hotel or some jazzy restaurant, but it also does not mean that you take her to McDonald’s, KFC or Subway. Don’t give that look, you know you might have thought of it.
Finally, the most important aspect is don’t rush things. If she has agreed for a first date, it does not mean that she is totally into you. Take things step by step and be conscious of the words that come out from your mouth.
We know that it’s not just men who should make efforts but when it comes to relationships, there are a lot of expectations you need to meet, especially to woo the love of your life. And these tips are way easy for you to follow. So boys, Happy Dating!
