No matter how fast-paced, heterodox and outspoken the world gets, the first date is the time when each and every person is nervous. From what to wear to what to talk everything seems like a mess. Well, that is obvious because this date decided whether or not the next one is happening! We have some tried and tested tips for your first date that can save you from a lot of embarrassments. These are all derived from personal experiences!


Tips for your first date


  1. Relax and take it easy

Yes, this could be the love of your life that you are going to meet but that shouldn’t be the reason for your nervousness. Be confident and relax. You definitely don’t want to portray yourself as a huge mess! So darling just relax! Like its just some random friend you are going to meet.


  1. Plan Beforehand

A little planning does no harm. Do a little homework about your date. Check their social media to know about the interests (stalking isn’t bad always). If you are going to a restaurant, check the menu beforehand so that you are sorted with your order. You definitely don’t want to be stuck with the menu half of the time.


  1. Dress Comfortably

Dressing appropriately is very important. You can’t go on a coffee date looking like you just came out of the gym. Keep it simple and comfortable. The best way is to wear what you wear every day. Just be you… This way the other person will get a clear idea of who you are and what are you expecting out of this date.


  1. Keep the conversations light

Do not bring politics on your first date for that matter. Talk something casual. Ask about each other’s interests, hobbies, jobs (not salaries of course!) and keep the exes or the dating history far far away. Talking about a serious topic for a very long time can ensure that this is probably your last date.


  1. A perfect exit

How you end the date is pretty important. Be clear so that the other person is not hanging in there. If you are done and don’t ever want to see the other person again, just excuse yourself. Make an excuse like you have to be at a friend’s birthday and leave. If in case you want this to go further, say a proper goodbye. Say, “It was fun, let me know if you would like to hang out again. I am free next weekend”.



The moral of the story: Be you, Be real and express your true self!
