5 Tips for an Incredible First Date

a couple on their first date

You may feel like giving up if you've been on some really terrible first dates, however, in dating, it only takes one first date for a spark to be made. You're only looking for one of these people for it to work out with, even if you may need to adjust what your meaning of "the one" is. Whether you're Online Dating or not, be open minded and take a few chances. Unless your gut is just telling you "absolutely no way would this work out", you may be passing up someone with whom you would match. Love takes work.


Before agreeing on a place to go for a first date, see if you two will be able to have a lengthy conversation like dinner requires. Maybe try going for coffee first, to see if there is any chemistry between you. While you're out on this date, here are 5 ways to have an incredible first date:


Wear Something You Feel Good In

This is extremely important. You don't want to go on a date feeling like you're a hot mess. Instead, you want to feel really beautiful and attractive so you can be the best version of yourself. Confidence is the sexiest thing you can wear.


Don't Hide Your True Self

This rings especially true for those who met their date doing Online Dating. If you are trying to be the person you think they want, you won't be happy if you do end up together. They'll realize you aren't who they thought you were, and you'll realize they may not be the right person for you. Just be yourself and you'll be fine.


Get Them Talking About Something They are Proud of

People light up when they talk about things they're good at. If you feel excited with them, there may be something there!


Don't Complain

Being negative when you're just going out with someone is a sure fire way to make sure neither of you are going to have an enjoyable time. Save the complaining for later.


Talk About What You're Looking for

While it may seem bad to talk about your beliefs and what you're looking for in the future, wouldn't it be better to be honest in the beginning so you don't end up with conflicting desires later on?

Once you're getting ready to leave and the check comes, why not offer to chip in? Whether you liked the date or not it is good to offer especially for the first date. This also gives you the opportunity to know if the person is interested in continuing dating depending on their response!
