Are you nervous about your upcoming first online date from an online dating service? Not sure how your first date would go? Well, here are some useful and practical tips for you to have an enjoyable and memorable first date.
First of all, you should be punctual for your date. Make sure that you arrive at least 10 minutes before the agreed time for the date. It is always good to be early rather than make the person wait. Settle down and make yourself comfortable before your date arrives. And if you are running late, do make sure to let your date know about your delay. He or she would definitely appreciate to be kept in the loop.
Secondly, make sure that you are dressed nicely and not in pajamas or in some shabby and unattractive clothes. Make the effort to dress to impress. First impressions are important! For the men, make sure that your hair is styled nicely and that you shaved, unless you look attractive with a mustache or a beard. For the women, make sure that you don’t put too much makeup on. Just put enough make up to cover the blemishes on your face.
Next, you can prepare for your first date by thinking of some interesting questions that you can ask your date. This is to avoid any awkward pauses. Read through your date’s profile from the site to know what he or she is interested in. During the date, ask questions about your date’s interests. Asking someone about what he or she is passionate about makes the person feel warm and connected to you. Let him or her know that you care and take interest in his or her passion. On the other hand, also make sure that you do not ask silly questions. For example, if your date is a die hard Liverpool football fan and strongly indicated that on his profile, don’t ask questions like: “Are you a Manchester United football fan? You look like one.”
And finally, prepare to be spontaneous and don’t worry too much about the date. Just enjoy yourself during the date and you don’t even have to make sure that the date is planned for down to the minute. Just relax and go with the flow and.
