Manual dating guide women
The advantage of keeping the first date short and simple is that if you don’t like each other, you haven’t got to make it through a seven-course meal together.
If you do like each other, you can either extend the date, or plan a longer one for next time. Try and avoid very noisy places (where you can’t hear each other), cinemas (where you can’t talk), sporting events (unless you know for a fact that they are interested), or your home (because it could be risky if you don’t know them). Make an effort with your appearance - but not so much of an effort that your date wouldn’t recognise you if they bumped into you in the street the next day.
Will we have anything to talk about and if not, how will we get through the evening?
It is definitely possible to think too much about a first date.
We all know people who have had a passionate affair with someone only to “wake up” two months later and realise that they don’t even like the person and that they have nothing in common with them.
Equally, don’t get too emotionally involved too quickly.
If you already know the person and are pretty certain that you both like each other then by all means go for the big romantic gesture. My husband turned up for our second date with a bottle of wine, flowers and a box of chocolate biscuits, but soon realised he only had two hands and decided to leave the biscuits in the car! Making an effort shows that you care and that you want to make a good impression.
Unwashed hair, bad hygiene and yesterday’s clothes aren’t likely to win anyone over.
It helps if you can establish that there’s more to the relationship than just chemistry before ripping off each other’s clothes.So, how can you make sure that your first date is the best it can be (even if it turns out to be your only date together)?Here are some suggestions on what to do and what not to do. Chose the venue carefully If you are doing the choosing, pick somewhere that you know your date will like.The key is to relax, enjoy yourself and not to analyse everything too much.Regardless of whether you hit it off, wouldn’t it be great if you could both say that you had a good experience?
