First dates are quite scary.
But do they really have to be?
The answer is NO.
Now I know that you only get one chance to make a good first impression. And if you are meeting the person for the first time, the first impression will be really important.
You need to make her time worth it because in this busy world nobody has time. You are lucky that she took a time out of her busy schedule to meet you.
Don’t worry as these 7 simple and attractive ways will not only help you impress her but will open the gates for a second date too.
Here I don’t mean start shooting one question after another.
Ask her genuine question and give her time to answer. Show interest in her answers. The more interest you show the more she will want to talk. And if she doesn’t feel like answering a particular question don’t push. Give her space.
A Pro Tip:
Keep question prepared before the date. So you can avoid the awkward silence. Here are some questions that you can ask.
Here you can know about her interests and you both can find a common ground. Just don’t make her feel like she is giving an interview. Which brings us to the next point
Here again, you are not taking an interview. So, you don’t want her to feel that this is a job interview. Instead, keep the conversation interesting. You can do this by asking questions that are engaging like
This way you’ll not only know more about your date but also begin to like each other’s company. As she starts to have fun she will be more at ease with you. By noticing her body language you can tell if she’s interested or not.
Now obviously she isn’t here only to talk about herself.
She wants to know about you too. Talk a little about yourself.
Tell her about your likes and interests. Answer her questions. Don’t give a straight “No” to any question as it may make her feel that you are not interested.
Instead, give a more detailed answer to why you dislike or like something. But don’t go into too much detail.
If you want to make it more interesting you can tell her tales of your past. Like how you went camping with your friends or anything funny like how you messed up your friend’s birthday party. By making her laugh you can break the tension.
But here’s the deal:
try avoiding things that are immature and sad. Like telling her how you pranked someone or making someone cry may not be a good conversation during a date.
And remember – whatever you do, don’t start talking about your ex how you miss her this will only kill her mood and make her wanna leave.

There are many mistakes to avoid on a first date. But this may be the one you should give priority.
Think about it.
how rude it would be if you’re talking and your date is using the phone or interrupts you to take a call.
It’s the same for them when you interrupt them to take a call. It kills the mood and the flow of the conversation.
So the next time you are out on a date, keep your phone on silent and if the call is not very important it can wait until the date ends.
Drinks may be a great way to loosen up but moderation is the key.
A drink or two may be enough you don’t need to take a shot each time you get a little nervous.
Because you don’t want to be your drunk self and believe me he is not as fun as you think he is.
Also, there may be a chance that you are a loose tongue when you get drunk. And if you are, the only thing you will do is embarrass yourself and her.
Now the place you choose for the date may be one of the first things that she will notice.
You have a lot of options but you don’t know which to select. In my opinion, going to cinema may not be the best choice. Because you won’t get a chance to talk and know each other.
Instead, choose an activity that both of you will enjoy and get a chance to talk too.
Here are some activities that you can choose from.
These are only the tip of the iceberg. There are many other choices you can choose for. Just come up with something where you can have both fun and have a nice conversation.
I can’t emphasize enough on this.
You don’t need to fake an accent or you don’t need to act cool. There is a reason she went out with you. So, just be yourself. She liked something about you or else she wouldn’t have shown up.
Now you may be thinking what if she liked your fake self that’s why she went out with you. How long do you think before she notices and what then? Wouldn’t you love if she likes you for who and what you are? So be who you are.
Just by keeping these 7 things in mind you can avoid making mistakes that you will regret later on. So, just be yourself good luck.
