4 Tips for a Successful First Date

Confident Appearance

Being confident is an advantage on the first date. It covers up your nervousness and shows that you are an independent person with your own opinion and your own life. Submission can quickly become desperate and unattractive. However, if the other person gets the impression that you are satisfied with yourself and that you are not chasing a dream, you are leaving a strong impression. A self-confident appearance requires a clear look, a straight demeanor and not being afraid of clear statements. It radiates that you feel good in your own skin. In this way you make your counterpart feel comfortable too. Of course, you shouldn’t overdo it with infatuation. Showing off or arrogant behavior will end your date early or reduce your chances of a second date. Just try to convey that you are satisfied and happy with your life.

The Right Outfit

The right outfit for a first date always depends on the location and the time of day. It shouldn’t be over the top, but it should also signal that the date is important to you and that you’ve given it some thought. It is particularly important not to pretend. A first date in particular tempts you to want to make the best possible impression and to exaggerate a bit visually. Most of the time, the other person will appreciate it much better if you show yourself how you dress. After all, you should feel comfortable so that you can get involved on the date. In the evening it can of course be a little more elegant than during the day. But always think about beforehand whether your outfit is practical enough.

Lower Expectations

Some singles already hope for a dream partner or a future together based on the first date. It is very likely that these ideas are not only utopian, but also counterproductive. Those who have too high expectations of the other can only be disappointed. You often only recognize a dream man or woman over time, when it becomes clear how well you actually fit together. So if the first impression on the first date wasn’t perfect, but you get along well, maybe you should give your date another chance.

Revealing Something About Your Personality

A first date is there to get the most accurate impression possible of the other person. This impression decides whether the other looks at you on the friendship level, can imagine a relationship with you or maybe just wants to spend one night with you. It is important that the other person can read your personality. This is the only way your date can judge whether you are a good match. Those who close themselves off and appear distant also make it difficult for their date to open up to themselves. After all, you also want to know what makes the other person tick and whether your basic attitude towards life fits together.
