Dating isn’t rocket science right? But it could still be difficult especially when it’s been a while since you were active in the dating scene. Even after the challenges of finding someone to ask out, you want to impress them on the first date and you’re not exactly sure how to do that. Tips and advice wouldn’t hurt especially if they’re actually helpful.
Be On Time
During the first date, don’t be late because it either creates a bad impression on you; they’ll think that you’re not at all interested or maybe the date was not worth your time. Every minute that passes, the date becomes delayed and your date will think that they have been stood up; it’s not an amazing feeling. Imagine being alone in a place, constantly checking the time and becoming conscious as to what the people around may be thinking of them, sitting there without any company.
Don’t Bombard them with Self-Complements
Avoid solely talking about just how amazing you are, because at one point it becomes annoying and it leaves something far from a good impression. They want to be heard and agreed with, if the date goes well there will be more time to get to know each other at a better pace.We’re sure that when you’re in the receiving end of a date’s boasting or self-complements, you wouldn’t enjoy the overall conversation.
Be Genuinely Interested
When meeting someone for the first time on a date, you’ll discover a lot about them. Some will genuinely catch your interest, while others not so much but it wouldn’t hurt to appear interested. Behind every story is real effort to tell you, a stranger, so do at least show considerable interest in what they have to say. It’s off putting to talk to a date that looks like they want to be anywhere but there.
