How to Have a Perfect DateOn by
Men always tend to imagine a perfect date. Even women wants to experience a unique and exciting first date. But how can you achieve it? Going on a date is the first step in getting to know a person. If you don’t want to end up with a terrifying date, you should thoroughly plan it. You must decide on the appropriate clothes to wear (to look presentable), plan mutual activities, and think of possible topics that you can talk about.
If you want to create the perfect date, you should act naturally and not as if you’re facing a trial. This is the only way to enjoy your date’s company. Follow this guide so that you will know what to do:
The preparation period is vital. You must determine the various interests of your date so that you can plan the appropriate activities. Do you have the same interests or are your personalities worlds apart? Mutual enjoyment should be your goal in planning the date. If your date hates crowded places, don’t take her to nightspots or if she is a vegetarian, don’t take her to the nearest steakhouse. Make sure that you plan everything down to the last detail. Contact your date in advance, probably about 3-5 days before the big day. This is one way of showing your date that you care about her social life and plans.
Factors to consider.
There are various things to consider when planning the perfect date. Some of these are affordability, weather, and time. There is no need to spend a lot of money on the first date because there are many free or low-cost date spots you can find in your area. The weather should also be considered when going on a date and of course, the time of your date. Do you want to take your girl to a picnic? Or a dinner perhaps?
Check out different resources for great date ideas.
Check out the local paper and see if there are any upcoming exhibits, plays, movies, events, or newly opened restaurants. You can also check out websites that offer great ideas for first dates. There are many online resources that you can utilize such as match.com, PlanJam, Yelp, Citysearch, Chowhound, and Metromix. Through these sites, you can determine the perfect activity for you and your date, specific city activities, great food, and many others. You can also ask your friends if they have any recommendations for first dates but make sure that you trust your inclinations and instincts. It would be best to pick up your date but you can also arrange for a meeting place.
Dress. Go casual on your first date.
Choosing the outfit is very important. You must try to look your best and you must feel comfortable. Don’t wear an uncomfortable outfit just to please your date. Personal hygiene and good grooming are vital. Before gong on a date, you should take a bath, brush your teeth, shave, comb your hair, and don’t forget to clean your nails. If you’re going on a picnic or nature trip, you cant wear high heels or formal shoes. Don’t wear clothes that make you feel awkward and stiff.
Striking a conversation.
Think of general topics before the date. Don’t talk about controversial topics and never talk about your past relationships. When your date answers your questions, listen to the replies. If your date asks questions, try to answer them honestly and never exaggerate. Keep your conversation light and fun. It’s also not a good idea to talk about invasive or personal topics such as income, sexual history, etc.
You must show proper table manners. Don’t belch or talk when your mouth is full. Even if you’re a bit nervous, you should limit your alcohol intake. If you want to use your cellular phone, excuse yourself first. If you asked for the date, you should shoulder all the expenses (whether you’re a man or a woman).
