For a guy, asking a girl out on a first date takes a lot of courage. And when you are able to do so, ensure that you are able to make a good impression so that you can ask her out again. A first date is a stepping stone for all kinds of relationships. It does not matter whether you two end up together or simply become friends afterward. What is more important is that you are able to make your first date special and memorable.
There are a lot of things you can do on your first date. Aside from thinking on what to do and what to wear, here are 5 ways that can help you make a good impression when you go out with your dream girl.
1. Don’t Be Late
Never keep the girl waiting for she will surely remember that. If she said to pick her up at 6:30 PM, be sure you are in her house by 6:00. It doesn’t matter whether you have to wait for 30 minutes or so.
Girls need the necessary preparation so it’s much better that you’re the one waiting than letting her wait for you.
2. Bring Her in a Nice Place
Dinner-movie-coffee is the usual routine for first dates. While this is not a bad idea do, try to spice it up and bring her somewhere she’ll definitely remember. Try going to an amusement park, zoo, concert of her favorite band, museum, or historical sites. You can even try cooking classes, wine tasting, go fishing, or riding in a hot air balloon.
The important thing is that you won’t her bring in a secluded area since she might think you’re up to something.
3. Keep Her Interested
Funny guys have the greatest advantage because they can keep a girl laugh with their crazy antics and jokes. But you don’t have to be the class clown in order to impress a girl. A good sense of humor will do the trick. Just keep the conversation going and focus on her, not you.
Ask her about her interests and hobbies, plans for the next 5 years, or what she does at work. If you can avoid, don’t let that 5-second silence ruin your date.
4. Pay the Bill
Even if she offers, never let the girl pay. Asking a girl to go out with you means you are prepared for anything, cash included. Plus, it shouts awkwardness and expects that she’ll never go out with you the next time you asked her.
If you can’t afford to bring her to a fancy restaurant, then bring her someplace where you don’t have to shell out a lot of money.
5. Be Yourself
This may sound like a cliché but don’t pretend that you’re someone even when you’re not. Otherwise, she’ll only like the “fake” you and once she gets to know you better, she’ll realize that you are not the same person she first went out with.
Be honest about yourself and don’t make up stories just to impress her.
Above anything else, just enjoy your first date and savor the moment. Again, it doesn’t matter whether it will lead to a serious relationship or not. What matters most is that you are able to build a good reputation towards the girl and the two of you had fun and enjoyed the company of each other. All men have that special person they want to be with. That’s why they will do anything to make the girl go out with them. And when he is able to do so, he becomes the happiest person in the world. But before celebrating, you should always remember that the first date does not necessarily follow that a relationship will blossom.
