1. Be on Time
If you’re meeting him for a date, it’s important to be on time. This shows that you respect his time and that you’re excited to see him. If you’re running late, be sure to call or text to let him know.
2. Be Yourself
This is the most important tip. Be confident and comfortable in your own skin. Don’t try to be someone you’re not, because he’ll see through it eventually and it’s just not worth the effort. Just relax and be yourself, he’ll love you for it.
3. Dress to Impress
Part of being comfortable is feeling good about yourself, and one way to do that is to dress up for your date. Put on something that makes you feel pretty and confident, something that you know he’ll love. You want to look your best so that he can’t take his eyes off of you.
This doesn’t mean that you have to wear a suit or dress, but you should put some effort into your appearance. Wear clothes that are clean and wrinkle-free. Make sure your hair is styled the way you want it.
4. Pay Attention to Your Perfume
You want to make sure you smell good for your date. This doesn’t mean that you should go overboard with your perfume or cologne, but just put on a light scent that will be pleasant for him to be around. You don’t want to be too overwhelming.
5. Be Positive
No one wants to be around someone who is negative all the time. Be positive and upbeat, and make him laugh and smile. He’ll be drawn to your positive energy and you’ll have a great time together.
6. Ask Him Questions
First dates are all about getting to know someone. So ask questions. Find out what he likes to do for fun, what his hobbies are, etc. Ask him questions is the way to show that you’re interested in him and what he has to say. He’ll be flattered that you’re interested and he’ll be more likely to open up to you.
7. Be a Good Listener
This goes hand in hand with being interested. Not only should you ask him questions, but you should also listen to his answers. Show that you’re hearing what he’s saying and that you care about what he has to say. He’ll appreciate it and he’ll feel closer to you.
8. Don’t Talk About Exes
This is a big one. Nobody wants to hear about your ex on a first date. It’s best to avoid the topic altogether. If your date brings it up, keep your response short and sweet.
9. Don’t Talk About Yourself All the Time
Of course, you want him to know all about you, but that doesn’t mean you should talk about yourself all the time. He’ll get bored and he won’t be able to get a word in edgewise.
Let him do some of the talking too, it’ll be good for both of you. And be sure to listen to what they’re saying. Nothing is worse than talking to someone who doesn’t seem interested in what you’re saying.
10. Don’t Be Silence All the Time
On the other hand, you don’t want to be silent all the time either. Find a balance between talking and listening, and make sure to keep the conversation flowing. He’ll appreciate your effort and you’ll both have a good time. He may not ask you out on a second date if you’re silent the whole time as he will mistake that you have no interest in him.
11. Gradually Let Him Know about You
An air of mystery is seen to be appealing by men. He’ll be more interested in you if he doesn’t know everything about you right away. Gradually let him know more about you as you get to know each other better. He’ll be curious to find out more and it’ll keep things interesting.
12. Make Good Eye Contact
Making good eye contact is important for making a connection with someone. It shows that you’re interested and engaged in the conversation. It also shows that you’re confident and comfortable with him. He’ll be impressed by your confidence and he’ll feel closer to you. It is also sexy to make eye contact with your date.
Smiling is another way to show that you’re interested and engaged in the conversation. It’s also a way to show that you’re happy and comfortable with him. He’ll be drawn to your positive energy and he’ll feel more at ease around you.
14. Touch Him Lightly
Touching him lightly on the arm or shoulder is a good way to show that you’re interested in him. It’s also a way of flirting with him and letting him know that you find him attractive. Just make sure not to overdo it, you don’t want to make him feel uncomfortable.
15. Don’t See Your Mobile Often
It is considered rude if you are frequently checking your mobile phone during the date. He will feel that you are not interested in him and may lose his interest in you. If you really need to check your phone, apologize first and then step away for a moment.
16. Have Good Body Language
Your body language says a lot about you, so make sure it’s saying the right things. Sit up straight and don’t cross your arms, which can make you seem closed off. Lean slightly towards him when he’s talking to show that you’re interested. And make sure to smile!
17. Have Fun
The most important thing is to have fun. If you’re not enjoying yourself, he probably won’t either. Relax and be yourself, he’ll like you for it. Just let the conversation flow and see where it takes you. You may be surprised at how well it goes.
18. End the Date on a Good Note for the Second Date
End the date on a good note by saying that you had a great time. He’ll be happy to hear it and he’ll be looking forward to seeing you again. You can also say something like “I’ll call you soon” to let him know that you’re interested in seeing him again. This will leave him wanting more and he’ll be sure to call you.
By following these tips, you’re sure to make a good impression on your first date. Both of you will be aware that both parties are interested in each other. Just relax and have fun, and you’re sure to have a great time together.
