What to do on a first date? Well, first of all, congratulations on landing the date! It can be pretty daunting at first but just remember this, there is a reason that person decided they wanted the first date with you. She saw something in you and wants to get to know you better. He saw something in you that was appealing. Now, just remember to be yourself and enjoy yourself at the moment with them. Don’t over think the process, just relax, be confident and have fun.
Here are a few things to do on a first date:
1. Good impressions are lasting, don’t be generic and just simply take them to the movies and dinner as every other person has done. But don’t overdo it as well. Be proactive in setting up the mood and the date. Be punctual to the agreed-upon time. Not only does this show that you are responsible and a person of your word, it will also show you have a vested interest in the date and that you value the other person’s time.
2. Be respectful and playful, As mentioned above, it is important to make a good impression on the first date if you ever want to see a second one. However, this does not mean you have to treat it as a job interview. Be yourself and read the room. Pay attention to her body language and get to know their interests too. And really care about what they have to say. Listening is a big factor and it could differentiate you from. Be playful and spice up the night.
3. Talk about something meaningful, forget the generic questions of “What do you do?” or “How was the weather today?” and ask them some questions that will really get them to stop and think. Remember to read the room and pay attention to the body language when asking questions. Before you do any asking, remember to always listen first.
If your date is not one to initiate, then you can take the lead to talk about something about yourself first. This shows initiative and allows them to see that you are willing to open up to them. Now you know what to do on a first date. Go be the best you that you can be, just make sure to be yourself. Best of luck out there you can do this!
