How Do You Handle Your First Big Date

Jun 5, 2008
When you are initially invited on a date, it's only natural to get wrapped up in the excitement of the moment. However the excitement may quickly wane, as you think of all the things that you need to do to prepare yourself for the big day.

The most important thing to obtaining a successful first date is adequate preparation. We can help you when you are not sure of what to do.

Here are some great tips to help you prepare yourself:

Set an early date and use these tips to ensure you stay on track for that date.
If you set a date too far away, you may lose patience and invite unnecessary stress into your life.

Initially you might be excited, but as time goes on you could feel nervous and impatient.

Choose someplace informal.

For the first date, it would be far more comfortable to pick a casual place to meet.
A venue that is less formal but more fun is better.

If things are too formal and stuffy, it may be difficult to get to know each other.

For the first date, why not have lunch?
For a date when you're first trying to get acquainted, set an early start so that you have plenty of time to spend together without rushing things.

Just because the sun is still out, doesn't have to mean that there will be no romance involved. Plus, you'll be left to look foreword to the evening dates that will soon follow your first lunch date.

Consider the person more than the place.

There is so much pressure about deciding where to go, what to eat, and what to wear. These are just secondary issues, and they do not have to consume you.

You would surely get carried away with the pressures, and forget the real purpose of the date if you forget to focus on the person you are going to be seeing.

* Informal does not mean you can go scruffy.

As mentioned above, you have to choose a venue that is less formal, but it does not mean that it has to be scruffy and dirty. And you shouldn't look like a scruffy little ragamuffin either.

Leave the formal wear at the house, but you should still present yourself well.

It's not polite to talk about how much money you make.
Talk about topics other than wealth of yourself or your parents, there are plenty of more fun and interesting things to discuss.

This is typically not a good topic, and it could actually ruin your date. People who are humble, are much more likely to get dates, than the people with giant egos.

Carry these tips in your heart, and your first date will turn out to be a great success. Make sure you do what you think will make this a special day for the both of you.
