First Date Do’s and Don’ts

First dates can result in two possible scenarios! It can either turn out to be a beautiful event that seems like a fairy-tale or it could turn out to be a complete disaster. Either way, it all depends on your fate and the circumstances that you encounter and how you deal with the situation. If you happen to be going on a first date very soon, these tips will be of some help to you.

Comfort Is Key

Do not make the mistake of wearing uncomfortable clothing unless you want to spend the entire evening tugging at your top or pressing your toes due to the uncomfortable shoes. Make sure you wear something elegant yet comfortable, and nothing over the top. You don’t want to overdress and make your date think that you’re trying too hard. However, you must ensure that you don’t dress shabbily either, as it may appear that you are not interested. Apart from this, make sure you wear comfortable footwear and avoid heels that you cannot walk in. In addition, keep the makeup usage to a minimum as you don’t want to look like you smeared your face with every product you own.

Try Out Something Fun

Although the ideal scenario for a first date would be either meeting at a café or enjoying a meal at a fine dining restaurant followed by a romantic movie, you can always opt for something different. If you are open to trying out new places, you could suggest something fun such as watching a football match, if you happen to share a common interest in the same sport. Or you could go sailing or ice skating. It all depends on what interests you and your date happens to like. This way, it will be easier for both you to enjoy your first date.

Don’t Keep the Other Person Waiting

Who doesn’t hate waiting hours for their date to turn up? One of the most common complaints that people on first dates have is that the other person arrived late. No matter how long you take to get dressed or how far you have to travel to reach the date venue, make sure you prepare ahead of time and leave early in order to reach on time. Do not make the mistake of making the other person wait as it may indicate that you aren’t as interested as the other person may expect you to be, thus making them lose interest in you too.

These are some of the dos and don’ts of a first date. Sometimes, what works for one person may not work for another. It differs from person to person and the relationship that they manage to form with their “date”. So, just relax and enjoy your date. If it works out, then you can consider yourself to be lucky to find love and if it doesn’t, this experience will teach you a lesson on how to avoid repeating the same mistake.
