Great Dating Tips for a Woman on a First Date
Congratulations, you have your first date with that guy! But now the initial excitement has died down, are you feeling anxious about how it is going to be? There are no guarantees, except perhaps that he is feeling as nervous as you, but here are a few ways you can increase the chances of your date going smoothly
If you do not know very much about your date, it is advisable to consider your safety by making sure you meet on neutral ground and you have your transport home arranged. But try not forget most people are genuine and once you have taken sensible precautions, you should not be unduly worried. However, if at any time during your date, you become concerned, make your excuses and leave. Trust your instincts.
Make sure you know in advance where you are going and what the expected standard of dress is. You will never feel your best if you are inappropriately dressed. It is always a good confidence boost to have a great new outfit to wear but it is more important to be comfortable in something you know looks great on you than to wear something dramatically different from your normal style or that you cannot relax in.
If this is your first meeting, maybe having met through online dating or because you are on a blind date, it is a good idea for you both to give some idea of how to spot each other. Your bright pink hand bag and his stripy shirt should be enough to confirm you are looking at the right person.
If you are meeting in a bar, restaurant or anywhere else where you may feel uncomfortable waiting alone, arrange with your date for him to arrive a few minutes early so that you do not feel awkward. Make sure you have each others mobile number, or the number of the place where you are meeting, so you can at least let each other know if you are held up.
By reminding yourself of areas for potential common ground, such as hobbies and interests before you go on your date, you will be able to help the conversation run smoothly. You cannot expect it all to flow easily as you will both be nervous, so anything you have up your sleeve to initiate a conversation will help your date go well.
Finally, at the end of your date, let him know if you enjoyed it. But be honest about whether you want to meet up again or not. If you do not want to see him again be polite but firm and do not accept an invitation out of sympathy. If you do both want to repeat the experience, go for it and good luck.
