First Date Tips and Tricks
by Marisa Pellegrino

The first date: what to wear, where to go, what to say, what to do and what not to do. All this pressure to make a good first impression can be daunting. After all, you know practically nothing about each other and the whole point of a first date is to judge (as much as we dont like to admit it) whether or not we think wed like to get to know each other better. But first dates dont have to be elaborate or fancy in order for you to secure that coveted second or third date. There are some things you will want to do and others you will want to avoid on a first date to ensure its success and the possibility of future dates as well.

When it comes to dating, it seems everyone thinks theyre the expert to turn to for advice. Whether its your friends or your lovable aunts who constantly inquire about your love life, everyone has a dating tip for you. But we all know what to do on a date, dont we? Always have a smile, listen attentively, be yourself, have fun, and the list goes on. So, if everyone knows the tips for successful dating, then why do we go through so much trouble and anxiety about first dates? Maybe its because there is no set standard of rules anymore

Online Dating. Is It Taken To Seriously

When I look at allot of the online dating services I notice one common trend. People take it very seriously into finding there true love. I find it absolutely amazing the amount of people who are looking for there absolute perfect match

There seems to be so many profiles out there who tell people exactly what it is they want from a partner. Its as if there an owner of a company and there trying to fill a certain job position. They then take and list there requirements and what they expect from a person. If they don’t meet those requirements then they think there unsuitable. I think that’s crazy  [More >>]

Once upon a time, chivalry was the norm. Nowadays, some women get offended when the door is held open or their seat is pulled out for them. Consequently, many single people are at a loss when it comes to knowing what to do and when to do it. And while there may not be an ultimate list of shoulds and should nots, there are still some common dating tips that everyone can agree on.

  • It is important to be attentive to your date and this includes listening to what they are saying (and maybe throwing in a question or two) and maintaining eye contact when in a conversation.

    Little Known Dating Tips, Secrets and Dating Mistakes

    I hear it over and overIt was going so great, and then she disappeared on me why? What happenedwe were having such a great time together. Im tired of this happeningI want to date sexy women, but I want them to stick around. Do you have any dating tips for me?

    Yes, I do. Every time I talk to a guy who tells me this, I discover hes making the exact same mistakes most guys do, dating mistakes that kill his chances of successfully dating sexy women. So, I give him some dating tips to skyrocket his success with sexy women. Here are the most common ones  [More >>]

  • There is nothing worse than meeting your date and not knowing what youre going to do. If you have something planned ahead of time, it shows you put some thought into it.

  • If you go out for dinner, why not split the bill? Sure, you were invited out and your date is expected to pay but offer anyway. And if your date picks up the tab, offer to pay the next time.

  • By all means, call your date if you say youre going to call! If you didnt have a good time then be courteous, and dont promise to get in touch when you really have no intention of doing so.

  • Be polite; turn off your cell phone and stop the wandering eyes. There is nothing ruder than taking a casual call from a friend or ogling the waitress at the next table while your date is attempting to hold your attention.

  • While talking about past relationships almost always comes up in conversation, dont start telling your date every last detail; they are not your therapist!

  • And believe me, chivalry is not dead; women do appreciate it, just dont overdo it boys.

In this world of womens independence, many are taking it upon themselves to ask the man out. And why not?! It shows confidence and is a turn-on for many men. Keep in mind though, confidence is sexy, arrogance is a turn off.

Many people will have a different answer when you ask them their opinion on whether or not a kiss is acceptable on the first date. Maybe all you want to do is hold hands or snuggle and save the kiss for another date. It all depends on the chemistry between you and whether or not it feels right. And if it does, then go for it. Of course, if the date isnt going well, feel free to end the date early with everyones favorite backup emergency phone call from a friend. Chances are if youre not having a good time, neither is your date!

Hopefully, this has broadened your outlook on the world of first dates. The whole point of a first date is to figure out if you want to get to know the person better. Remember, when it comes to dating and tips, just follow your instinct and no matter the outcome, have fun, enjoy yourself, and relax.
