How to Succeed on A First Date?

The first date is one of the most important moments in a relationship. You want to give a good first impression of yourself and that's why you want everything to go as perfect as possible. There are plenty of tips and rules for men out there, but not all of them are really useful. I have extensively researched on this topic and I have made a list with the top 5 most important basic points to succeed on a first date. So, here's the list!

1. Choose the right place.

Usually people think the restaurants are the best option for a first date. That's true, but it's also very traditional. Think out of the box. Women like men with sense of humor, so take your date to a place where you can have some fun. Go to the park or to some comedy show. By association, she'll think you're funny as well, even if you don't tell the jokes. You'll have more chances if you go to the right place with your date.

2. Don't be late

Be sure to be 5 or 10 minutes before your date. Girls hate waiting and if you're late, you'll notice she'll be probably mad at you. Been late also shows that you are not that interested on her. You don't want to be disrespectful.

3. Don't talk too much

Women like to talk and usually they don't like when men talk more than they do. That's why it's a good idea to ask her questions and let her do the talking. There will be enough time to talk about your interests, but right now the idea is that she feels comfortable telling you her story, what she likes and what kind of partner she's looking for.

4. Don't look at other women

This is a very obvious rule, still, there're plenty of men that still keep looking at other women while they're on a first date. This is very disrespectful and she'll think you have no interest at all. It can be hard to get a date with a girl you really like, so don't ruin it staring at other women. Keep focused on your girl, that's the reason why you're there.

5. Dress for success

Before a date, women usually take a lot of time styling her hair, choosing a pretty outfit. They want to look great for that important moment and they also expect that her date is going to look good. Show her you take this date seriously by looking your best. If you had a long work day, it's important to go back home first, take a shower and prepare yourself for the special moment. It's not necessary to wear some expensive clothes, just try to dress well and if you need some help you can always ask your friends.
