The first date can be both nerve racking and exciting. To ensure that there are no mishaps ruining your first date here are a few tips. For you gentlemen the most lucrative advice is to pay. Regardless of the situation or that women are more financially independent than ever, we still like to be taken care of. A man paying on the first alludes to confidence and that you have yourself together — two extremely attractive qualities. And by confidence, that does not mean to brag about what kind of car you drive, how much money you make or how nice your house is. Women like a man that is confident in himself yet humble about his achievements.
Lastly, for you guys, listen when she is talking. A girl will notice if you are more interested in the menu than her. For you ladies the key to acing the first date is to find that fine line between talking too much and keeping his attention. Women tend to try their best to expose all of their best qualities and win him over as quickly as possible. But the first date is not about giving your life story. It is a chance to see if there is chemistry between the two of you. Avoid divulging in too much information; if he is into you there will be plenty of time to get to know each other better. Men like a challenge, by making yourself completely emotionally available you give him control of the situation. Lastly for you ladies: be true to who you really are. Don’t order an appetizer if you’re really hungry. The more genuine you are, the more comfortable you will be. Acting completely out of character will only reveal any insecurities you have and leave you up creek without a paddle for the second date. For all you first daters out there enjoy yourselves. Laugh at the awkward moments, roll with unexpected and be open to all possibilities for meeting someone amazing!
