The dating game can be quite tricky, especially if you haven’t been in touch with the dating world for quite some time. How excited or nervous you feel prior to the first date depends on who the person is and how well you know him. Here are some essential tips to keep in mind before you go on that first date.
Wear Comfortable Clothing
Now, you might want to make a great first impression on your date and wear something that is sure to leave your date awestruck. But, is it even worth it if you aren’t going to feel comfortable in what you wear and end up adjusting your clothing throughout the night. Wear something that is comfortable and sure to make a statement at the same time. Avoid loud colors and too much bling as it may seem that you put in too much effort and don’t wear jeans and flip flops as it may seem like you didn’t care enough to dress well either. Something classy and simply like a black midi dress paired with pearl studs is sure to do the trick.
It is quite normal to imagine what this person is going to be like based on the information that you have about this individual after hours of stalking their social media accounts or based on the conversations that you two have shared before going on your first date. However, this person may come across as quite different compared to what you expected. Therefore, it is best to avoid painting a picture in your head as to how this person would be and keep an open-mind and zero expectations before the date. This way, you won’t end up being disappointed if this person does not turn out to be the way you imagined.
Most people have the tendency to use their phone as a way of avoiding social interaction or to hide their nervousness. This may be acceptable and go unnoticed amongst a group of friends. But, your date is sure to notice this and find your demeanor to be quite rude and inappropriate. Therefore, it is important to pay attention to what the other person is saying and avoid texting or using the phone while you are on this date. However, if you find this person to be unbearable and nothing like you had expected, then your phone might be your only savior.
These three tips are sure to come in handy before you go ahead and meet that person for the first date. So dress comfortably and keep your expectations low and remember to enjoy instead of trying to over-analyze this person!
