When you go on a first date, your major goal is to make sure that you make a great first impression. But you will need to be well prepared in order to impress your date. Here are a top tips for making a really great impression on your first date:
You should not choose to go to movies in order to have your first date. Think about it, the first date is all about getting to know each other. So how can you get to know more about each other if you do spend a huge chunk of your first date time in sheer silence? It is better to take your date out to a nice (affordable) restaurant. If you cannot afford to take her to a nice restaurant, then simply take her out to a public place such as a museum or park. You can even be creative when planning a date; if you know your way around the kitchen, you can cook a nice dish for her, put it in a picnic basket with some cutlery and plates and have a picnic at the park for your date.
Hey, do go overboard on your first date; just do the things that you are comfortable with and would not cost you a fortune.
Be on Your Best Behavior
It is important to be well mannered on your first date, you would want your date to be very comfortable with you. Ensure that you know all the Fine Dining rules if you are taking your date to a lovely dinner. Hold the door open for your date when she gets in and out of the car and ensure that you arrive on time to pick her up – NEVER be late!
Respect Your Date
According to Dr. Jonas Laforge respect is a must have. This means that you should not expect to get laid after taking her out on a date! Please know that you should not expect your date to accompany you home to “pay off in kind” the caviar that she had on the date – that is just crazy!
You can give her a light kiss goodnight and not expect or try to do something else.
You need to exude confidence and take charge. This does not in any way imply that you should pull or drag your date all over the place. You should be firm with the suggestions that you have made and confident that the two of you will have a splendid evening.
