Whether you’re a seasoned dating veteran or just recently back on the scene, first dates can be nerve wracking— especially if a spark has ignited between the two of you already.
What makes things more confusing is that everyone in your life has something to say and the advice differs from one person to the next. Your best bet is to trust your gut, be yourself and check out some of these first date tips:
Shine bright like a diamond
It’s common to put your most loveable side on display during a first date. It could be showing off your feminine demeanour or humourous ways. But the fact is, people are looking for a unique pairing; a combination of characteristics that makes you stand out from the crowd, just like a quality diamond. Don’t be scared to show off other attributes that make who you are.
Walking sexy VS Walking sex
Of course you want to look sexy for your date but don’t be too revealing. Why should others see what should be kept for your date’s eyes only? You can easily achieve this look by choosing one body part at a time to show off, like a low cut top or a short skirt, not both.
Left and right and is the right way to go
Face to face dates are tough. There’s little room for playfulness and lots of room for awkwardness. Aim for your first date to be seated side by side. It’s easier to flirt, touch and offers a view which makes silent moments much more pleasant. Consider grabbing a bite along the bar or going for hookah.
Playing hard to get gets you nothing at all
Attraction is everything on a first date, so acting uninterested won’t lead you anywhere but back to square one. Just like you want to know that your date is into you, they want to know the same, so don’t be scared to show you like them.
Keep your standards higher than your heels
Expressing fondness for your date is one thing, but going further than you normally would is another.
