First dates are always nerve racking, we will be the first to admit. No matter how prepared you feel they have the potential to go horribly wrong. Kind gestures are always a win and better your chances of locking in a second date. Sometimes it is the small things that can leave a lasting impression. Here are 5 ways you can impress your date:
1. Make eye contact
Yes, its as simple as that! Making eye contact may seem obvious, but often when we are nervous or feel pressure we find ourselves looking around the room. This may make your date feel like you are uninterested or pre-occupied. You do not want to kill their confidence, so keeping eye contact is a plus. This may be the difference between getting their number and never hearing from them again.
2. Get to know Them
Make sure to ask your date about themselves – learn about their interests, their family or what they do for fun. Remember they are probably as nervous as you are, so just imagine your hanging out with a friend. Sometimes nerves make us talk non stop. Make sure you let them contribute, listen to what they have to say. The more engaged you are the more likely you are to find some common ground and spark a great conversation!
3. Remember Who You Are
Be yourself, don’t try to be anyone your not or fake a persona. Often people can tell when we are concealing the truth, which can be embarrassing. Remember that the date is happening because they were interested in you. Make sure to be the best you, you can be. Embrace your point of difference and do not hide any quirks, they are what makes us us!
4.Dress to impress
Confidence is attractive, so make sure you feel your best. Do your hair or make up or wear your favourite shirt. This doesn’t mean you have to dress to the nines, but dress the way that you like. Be presentable and dress for the occasion. If you are going out for dinner wear appropriate attire.
