So the hottie finally agreed to go on a date with you. How did you pull that one off?
We're just kidding! Well, make sure you don't mess things up and follow our guidelines to ensure the
perfect first date.
Call Before Leaving
The last thing you want is for someone you like to see how you really live. Calling
before you leave lets them know just how long they have to clean the place up or
themselves for that matter!
Bring Something to the Door
Some people still follow this tradition and others don't. To be honest with you, a girl
shouldn't think less of you if you arrive empty handed but we can promise you will score
major points if you do show up with something. Check out our Dating
Supplies to see what the latest trend is...
One note: If you are going to a cocktail party, it is always good gesture to show up with
a bottle of wine or flowers for the host.
Use Courtesy and Thoughtfulness
That's just common sense. Along the lines of bringing something to the door, rules have changed in
dating and chivalry just isn't what it used to be. A man who opens the door for a woman is the result
of an excellent mother. Remember, women notice your actions whether you do something or not. If you open
the door for us we remember, but if you don't it doesn't mean the date is over...
Avoid Illusions of Intimacy
Remember this is only the first date, you don't want to drop major bombs! People tend to divulge
more than they should when the get nervous, a common side effect of first dates. Well, Susie doesn't
want to hear about your poor, old dog that died when you were 13 and still haven't gotten over. And
John probably doesn't want to hear about how your ex used to snore in his sleep. Get the picture?
Try Not to Stare at Others
Simply put, they may be hotter than who you are with, but you are still on a date. Don't
gawk at passerby's. This may be hard if you are a people-watcher, but stay away from staring...
Don't Come on Too Strong
The quickest way to sink a perfectly good date is to come on too strong. Don't start planning
your future together when you've only known eachother for a few hours...
Develop a Good Sense of Humor
Laughing is the best way to break the ice and relieve stress. No one doubts that you are nervous,
but you don't have to sit there stone faced. Loosen up a little, laugh and relax.
