First dates are totally nerve wrecking because you never know if you’re about to meet the man of your dreams or another Mr. Wrong to add to your list of rejects.
But first dates don’t have to be so tricky! If you’re tired of disastrous first dates, it’s time to change your game plan strategy and take charge of your dating life in ways you haven’t done before.
If you follow the following first date tips, you’ll have him begging for a second date by the end of the night:
Although it might be hard to relax before your first date with a new potential man, you’ll have to make yourself do it.
The last thing you want is to show up to your date high strung and a total nervous mess. Your date will totally catch on to your anxious vibes and that might start the date on an awkward note.
To relax before the big event, try some breathing techniques so that you’re not a hot mess when you meet him.
Turn Off Your Phone
Don’t be one of those annoying people that you see at restaurants these days that are always on their phone. In fact, turn it off and leave it in your purse and don’t turn it on until the date is finished.
If you’re on your phone the entire time, your date will think that you care more about your friend’s Facebook status than getting to know him. If there’s one thing guys hate most, it’s a girl that’s always on their phone.
After you’ve turned off your phone to eliminate distractions, don’t forget to actually be present on the date. Don’t go off into a daze and think about work the next day or plans for the weekend. Be present and really show your date that you’re listening to what he’s saying.
Your date will take notice and will do the same for you.
Guys hate it when a girl doesn’t know what she wants. If you’re always saying, “I don’t know, what do you think?” … he’ll be turned off that you can’t make up your own mind.
If he gives you options, choose one.
Dress To Impress
You might be shaking your head, thinking this is a given, right? Well, dressing to impress doesn’t mean dressing to shock.
Sure, you want to be sexy and attractive, but that doesn’t mean showing off all your assets in barely there clothing.
It’s all about balance, so don’t go overboard showing off everything. It’s good to leave some things to the imagination.
If you’re going out to dinner or any activity that involves food, don’t try to be a supermodel and barely touch your meal.
Men don’t want a woman with food issues since it shows how insecure she is. Guys like it when a woman eats normally and enjoys her food.
So there you have it – a few first date rules that will have him texting you the next day, asking you out for a second date!
