First dates can be like a wild rollercoaster ride for women! Being natural over thinkers, we sometimes overanalyze the situation. If you are also about to go on a first date and butterflies have literally taken over your stomach by doing deadly cartwheels, all you should do right now is – ‘Relax’! It is normal to experience a mix of emotions before your first date because who wouldn’t want to give their best? After all, as they say- “First Impression is the Last Impression!”. 

So, quit overthinking, and let’s know everything that can make your first date memorable for all the right reasons. Get ready to charm your way through your first date.

1. Be ‘You’

Being yourself is the key to creating a genuine connection with your date. It might sound like a cliche to you but believe it or not; authenticity is best! Imagine yourself sitting right next to your date without pressure to impress them and simply being ‘You’. They are anyways interested in knowing the real you, so you should not pretend to be someone you are not. If you love watching films, travelling, or singing then just simply share that! After all, you would also want them to like you for who you truly are!

2. Be Punctual

Punctuality is a powerful way of showing you respect your date’s time. When you arrive on time, it sets a positive tone for the evening. It also shows that you are interested in getting to know them and you simply value their effort. So, aim to arrive on time as it will also give you both more time to get to know each other without hassle.

3. Dress Comfortably and Confidently

Now, this one is a little stressful. Choosing a perfect outfit that helps showcase your strongest fashion game is a task. However, you must not be so hard on yourself. Just remember that comfort is as important as style. Put on something that makes you feel comfortable and confident because when you adorn an outfit you like, your face shows signs of radiance and self-assurance.

Moreover, you wouldn’t have to adjust your outfit repeatedly and you would only have your date to focus on.

4. Be Thoughtful

Why should men always be the ones to put the effort into making their date feel special? Turn the tables and show your date how delighted you are to meet them and to experience this moment together. One of the ways to do that could be by scheduling an online delivery of a special bouquet of flowers for them. Imagine the look on their face when they receive a bunch of flowers from you. It is a sweet and unexpected way to start things off on a high note and show how invested you are in this date!

5. Listen and Engage

The experience of a first date always depends on the conversation between the two. Show genuine interest in your date by listening to them properly and asking questions wherever you feel like. Keep nodding, smiling, and giving feedback so they know you are engaged. Everyone appreciates feeling heard and understood. Plus, this will help both of you understand each other better and make the date enjoyable.

6. Keep an Open Mind and Have Fun

On a scale of 1 to 10, first dates are a 10! They can be highly unpredictable and not everything can go as planned. Your date might take a wrong turn on their way or the meal that you order might not be as delicious as you hoped. In these situations, you should stay calm and be positive. Simply go with the flow, keep an open mind, and most importantly don’t be afraid to laugh at the little mishaps.
