Tips: Before Your First Date

The success of your date does not solely depend on the day of the date or the time you spend with your partner, there are many other things that do have direct impact on the result of your date. You need to check out the following factors to have a successful date.

• Choose your location
Even the most creative people find it tough to find the appropriate location for your first date. Just think about the places for a fine date, what are the places that come into your mind a fine hotel, a tourist spot, theatre etc. I would say, you should drop this entire list of places, don’t get formal on your first date, select some nearby coffee shop, art gallery etc where you won’t by formal and you can be relaxed. Even if your partner is selecting the place have your say in the decision. If you and your partner are staying far away from each other, select someplace which is suitable for both neither of you should be exhausted for your first date.

• When to go for your first date
Another thing that is as important as selecting the place is deciding on when to have the date. What about a weekend night, then both of you would be free and you won’t need to go to work the following day and so can stay out later, doesn’t it look bright. Don’t think about this for your first date, as most of us do make plans for our weekends in advance, there are many other things that can be done on a weekend rather than going for a date, so our date plan should have to compete with many other things, so even if our date is fine we would have an inner feeling that we could have done something better than going for a date. So for your first date select a week day, as we don’t make advanced plans for weekdays. If possible it would be better if we plan for a afternoon lunch during our lunch break as it would be better to keep our first date short.

• Be patient
Always offer a girl a choice of dates and locations and understand when she has reasons for doing other things. All too often when someone says no you automatically assume you are being given an excuse and that the truth lies elsewhere. You assume too much. Let her know that you are interested in her and that when things are better for her in her diary, that you can make some arrangements. Always stress that you are busy too and this will add to your overall appeal. Remember that you too must never be too available otherwise it comes across that you are uninteresting, or even worse, desperate.

• Sort out your job

Women want a man who has some ambition in life. Coasting along as a skateboard instructor is generally not going to win you a real catch (though I’d give it a go, I love skateboarding). Any job is better than none, but knuckle down and sort out some direction in your life. If possible try and look like you have something of a career. If you have a manual job, at least have some plans to work for yourself, and if you already do, then you are on the right track. But know what you are about work wise and have some idea of your future plans because women will ask questions about your prospects. Even if they pretend it isn’t important, it is.

• Prepare
The last thing you want is to be sitting having a meal and the conversation dries up, leaving you bored with each other for the rest of the night. Think about your date and what you would like to know about her, and in return what you would like her to know about you. Try and think of any questions that she might ask you, so that you can prepare the answer. You think that it is easy to talk, and that you will not run out of questions to ask, or that you will automatically have the answers. But until you are there and in the situation, you have no idea what it will be like. You can avoid all of this by meeting for a quick drink, then go on to see a film, so you have something obvious to talk about.

• Look your best
Go to a beauty parlour get a haircut, if possible get it styled or just get a regular shave, a professional shave will leave your face looking and feeling great. Men are so often criticized for smelling bad. Get into a regular showering routine so you will always smell fresh and clean. Women appreciate it.

Get some decent clothes and shoes. Women always look at your shoes. Get clothes that fit you, suit you and are contemporary. Buy a nice tailored suit, there is no excuse not to.
