First Date Tips

Jan 22, 2014

It can be hard enough to get up the nerve to ask someone out, but once you’ve done it you then have to start worrying about making it a date they won’t soon forget! With a little planning though, you can channel your inner Romeo and give your crush a rush. Check out these First Date Tips!

Awesome Activities

When you’re in love, anything you do together is fun, but that’s not always the case if you’re just getting to know each other. Pick a first date activity that suits their personality, and that also won’t make you too nervous (for example, you may want to pass on sky diving.) Here are a few ideas:

  • Picnic in the park
  • Go to a movie (but make sure its something you both agree on)
  • Go to a concert
  • Hiking
  • Swimming
  • Go for dinner
  • Go to a party
  • Go for dessert
  • Check out an amusement park

First DateTipsSometimes keeping simple (like dinner or a movie) is the best plan
 

Whatever you choose, make sure you do enough planning so that things go smoothly, for example figure out how you’re getting there, how much it costs and how long you want to stay.

Wear it Well

Don’t stress about how to dress, but you should figure out what you want to wear before the last minute – that way you won’t end up with an outfit that makes you feel awkward ten minutes in. It’s good idea to pick clothes you feel comfortable in so that you’re not fidgeting, or worrying about your appearance, but don’t forget to also try and look good!

Talk the Talk

There’s no bigger buzzkill than sitting in silence with your crush, so before your date try and remember things you’ve talked about in the past, their interests, so that you’re never short of conversation.

First Date TipsPut your phone in your pocket and tweet about the date later
 

Another big no-no is constantly checking your phone, talking on your phone or texting. Lots of people do this when they’re just hanging with friends, but it can make that someone special feel like you don’t really want to get to know them.

You'll never know until you ask.But normally if a guy is smitten you'll know. Just ask him, maybe you'll be surprised on what he says. :)
