First Date: Best Dating Tips You Could Use

To most of us, the idea of throwing ourselves out there in an effort to find the right match for our lonely hearts can be a little bit if not that much intimidating. This can be attributed to the fact that to most of us, when we are going out on that first date that we have been dreaming about, we will always try to achieve the delicate balance between expressing ourselves, learning more about the other person and trying not to offend anyone in the process. In actual sense what we try to do is to sound friendlier other than controversial even though it exposes us to the risk of sounding dull.

Basically, in our attempt to coordinate on the perceived right dating strategy, we stick to the universally shared interests like food, music and weather. To most of us it is easier to talk about these topics but still that does not give the much yearned for conversation and certainly it does not guarantee a real measure of a long term romantic relationship.

So how can you make the whole first date experience an experience to recall?

  • First you have to visualize success by thinking about your wonderful attributes as opposed to thinking much about your faults. It is for certain that no one is willing to have a relationship with a person who does not think much of his or herself.
  • Take an inventory of your values, skills, talents and interest as in the conversation they will help you present attributes that best describe you as person.
  • Next is dress appropriately. Be presentable, well groomed and in casual clothes. Clothes that will make the other person feel comfortable to be around you. For ladies; do not come dressed “to kill” making you look over sexy like you are going to a nightclub, be simple. On the other hand, if you are a man, do not come dressed up in a t-shirt and jeans.

In fact, one of the golden rules in dating is to be courteous and kind to your date as you will never really be certain of where you will meet him or her or who his or her friends are. Always treat people the way you would like to be treated. That is karma.

Also keep your expectation in check. Try to establish whether the person is right for you in terms of a relationshipbefore you start imagining you and the person at the altar exchanging vows. Ask yourself if you like the person, does the conversation with the person flow easily? And lastly is there any attraction between the two of you and is it mutual? If the answer to these questions is yes, then you might start considering seeing the person again.

Lastly, be yourself. Let your date like you for who you are and not what you pretend to be. By keeping these few dating tips in mind, you are sure to have a pleasant first date experience in which case the process can lead you a to a much meaningful long term relationship. Cheers!!!
