It doesn’t matter if you have been on one date or one hundred, there is always so much that you think about during the event. Whether it’s reading facial expressions, monitoring body language, or even their tone of voice. Then you have to add in all of the social media accounts that you likely trawl through to find out more about them.
If you are an experienced dater then you know just how exhausting this experience can be. If you are getting ready for an upcoming first date, below are three greats tips to help make it an enjoyable experience.
Do you know what happens when you don’t take your time to adequately prepare yourself for your date? You arrive remarkably disheveled and the person you are seeing doesn’t get to see the real you. Cool, calm, and collected.
For this reason, it’s important that you give a second thought to the time of your date when making plans. Be sure that you have enough time to get home from work or at least return home and take your time preparing for the event.
Of course, this tip shouldn’t be taken to assume that you can be late if you aren’t ready. The very opposite is true. This tip comes in the form of pre-planning, so be sure to allow sufficient time so that you can do everything you need to without being late.
The right type of outfit
Many people wear their most expensive outfit on a first date to make the best impression possible. While this may be appropriate in certain situations, wearing a tux to dinner and a movie is a little overkill.
Instead, consider the events that you will be attending and the place that you be visiting, along with the weather, and let that consideration drive your outfit choice. Once you the style decided, then you can introduce your personal flair.
Do you know what happens if you go into a first date worried that everything is going to go terribly and you aren’t going to like the person you are about to meet? You end up ruining everything and convincing yourself that you don’t like the person you are looking at and that they aren’t a good match for you.
Instead, before you head into the restaurant or step out of your car, take a few deep breaths and remind yourself that you have no need to be nervous and that even if it doesn’t work out, you can enjoy your night and a potential new friend. If you met using the Groupon Coupons page for eHarmony, revisit their profile page to reacquaint yourself with their information and details. With this frame of mind, you will be better positioned to enjoy yourself.
While nothing can guarantee a positive first date, keeping these three thoughts in your mind when you are preparing for yours can help to increase the chances that you and your partner will both enjoy your first date.
