How to Make It Through the First Date
Posted by Jason
It's time for another great article! I apologise for haven't been writing, as I've been really busy with other matters but I'm making it a point to update my blog for you. I'm in the mood to give you some dating pointers, because it’s no secret how first dates can be really nerve-wracking. You can compare it with a job interview, or even an entrance examination—but the point is, going on a first date is an experience that can lead to a make-or-break situation.
I’ve had my share of horrible dates—it’s always awkward to find yourself in a situation wherein the both of you have nothing to say to each other. Picking up girls is one thing, and I must say I've learned a lot from http://seductionfaq.com/blog/how-to-pick-up-girls , but being on a date itself is another. If you are having the jitters because a casual date is lined up for you this weekend, here are some tips that will help you get through your first date, and hopefully will lead into a second one.
- Tip Number 1. Research. Think of it this way—a first date is like a long and winded “getting-to-know-you” process. This is the part where you keep your hands to yourself(please do!) and spend a lot of time in trying to find more about your date. To make the conversation rolling, do a little bit of research. I’m not asking you to be like a CIA agent and try to discover her secrets from decades past, but just enough for the two of you to carry a conversation. Ask around—usually friends who’ve done the setup would be a great source of information. Find common interests that may be used as the centre of your conversation over a cup of coffee or a fair-priced meal.
- Tip Number 2. Watch or read the news.
Yes, no matter how boring this may sound—it’s always a good idea to stay in touch with current events. When you are out of things to say or if talking about the weather becomes a 1-hour affair, the safest place to start the conversation trail once more would be current events. This is also the best time to impress your date—if there is an interesting discovery that you happen to know because you’ve read it from somewhere, it won’t hurt to share it with your date.
- Tip Number 3. A little grooming won’t hurt. If there’s one word that you would need to add into your vocabulary, make sure that it’s “grooming”. Of course, you want to look at your best while staring into the eyes of your beautiful date, so please make it a point that you’ve at least showered(come on now, guys!), put on some decent clothes, or sprayed perfume(in just the right amounts). I’m sure your date would appreciate you trying to fix yourself for her.
- Tip Number 4. Be confident. I’m sure that this is very difficult to master—I’m seeing a lot of heads shaking upon reading the word “confident” already. True, it’s hard to carry out a confident aura especially when you’re going on a first date, but don’t worry—that nervous part is sure to disappear once you’ve managed to control your emotions and channel it into confidence.
At the end of the day, it’s always YOU who’s going to determine the fate of your first date. Make sure it counts. Be yourself—and no matter how this line is overused in dating advice columns, it’s always a tried-and-tested formula. If you have more tips to share, do not hesitate to email me. I just might feature it on my next post!
