First dates can be awesome, and super exciting. Be yourself and have fun! Do not be too serious, it can send the wrong signal; the person may think you are a stick in the mud. Try to make those first moments count by making confident eye contact and smiling. Focus on whatever he or she is saying, and don’t keep using your cell phone. Don’t try too hard to make a first impression; it will make you seem desperate. Be kind to your date, it shows you are caring. Pay attention to what you say, choose your words wisely. Make sure you don’t use the f*** word as it can be a big blow to your potential future date. Avoid excess use of alcohol on your date as well. It is a big turn off; no one wants to date someone who drinks a lot If your date is successful, don’t play the hard to get game; whereas, you like the person, but you want him or her to chase you for a little while to see how interested he or she may be. Reply to his or her text messages in a timely manner. People like dating those who are responsive and kind. Being kind is the biggest turn on as well. If there is a mutual interest, after the date, it’s okay to tell the
person. It’s also nothing wrong with showing interest, by asking for a second date.
