First dates are intimidating. Maybe you know each other from online dating apps or sites. You don’t know each other and you are trying to find out if the other person will like you. You are also trying to determine if the other person is the right fit for you. There are some men and women that flake out from going on first dates as they are scared of what will come out of it. To help you out, here are rules that will help you have an enjoyable date:
Keep it short
Just because he is good looking or she is beautiful it doesn’t mean that you will like each other. There are many other factors that determine if you like the other person. To have an easy way out in the event you don’t like each other, you should make the first date short. Instead of going to the movies and later having dinner, have lunch or coffee together. By doing this you won’t have a lot of time together to bore each. During the meeting, you should pay all of your attention to the other person and you will be able to tell whether he/she is fit to be in your life.
Observe the general manners
Most of the people show their best manners on the first dates but there are some that don’t. One of the things that you should do is be on time. Showing up late shows that you aren’t serious and don’t respect the other person’s time. This gives a bad image about you and chances are that your partner won’t be interested in meeting you for the second date. If you are held up in traffic, at work or any other place, call your partner and let her/him know that you will be late.
The other thing that you should never do is talk ill of the other people in the restaurant or bar. This is common with ladies. Most of them keep on pointing at horrible dresses or dancing styles. While you may think that you are showing how fashionable and knowledgeable you are, you will be showing that you are a bitch and no one likes bitches.
In movies, men are shown opening doors for their women. While some women might like this and find it romantic, some strong and independent women might find it old fashioned and disempowering. You can try it once and if she doesn’t like it, don’t do it. If she doesn’t like her door opened, chances are that she won’t want you to pull her chair.
Decide on who gets to pay
As a man, you should always plan to pay for the date but you shouldn’t be overbearing. While some women might find it chivalrous when a man pays for all the bills, others find it old fashioned, disempowering, and chauvinistic. You should talk to her and agree on how to go about it.
Don’t have sex
This applies to ladies. Regardless of how much you like him, you shouldn’t have sex on the first date. Studies show that only 5% of couples that have sex on the first date have long lasting relationships.
