How to Act on a First Date

Article Summary:

I remember almost every first date I’ve been on. Some have been great, some have been mediocre, and some have been…well, we won’t talk or REMEMBER those. :)

Anyway, I bet you want to avoid those┬ákinds of dates and instead have a date that can lead to something more in the future. Whatever you’re looking for in the future, there are a few key things you need to do in order to know how to act on a first date and find success.

Go Somewhere Fun & Where You Can Interact

Despite the cliche, dinner and a movie is not the greatest first date. That’s because you’re paying a bunch of money up front for a first date; plus, you won’t have much time to interact during the movie. Instead, keep the date light and fun. Make it focused on you two getting to know each other. A coffee date can work here, or you can do something a bit more interactive, such as bowling. In the end, what you choose should depend on your personalities and interests.

Be Yourself Most of All!

The first thing to realize is that you shouldn’t try to “act” or not be yourself. It will come off as fake and you will probably turn her off. Plus, if it does work, are you going to keep up the facade forever?

In the end, be true to yourself and you’ll have more success in the long run.

If It Goes Wrong…

Despite your best efforts, sometimes the date won’t go well. There’s nothing you can do about it. If the chemistry doesn’t work, it doesn’t work.

In these cases, your best bet is to go out there and get another first date. Trying to spend time and effort figuring out “what went wrong” is a waste of time. Figure out what should be different for next time – but HAVE a next time! Don’t get hung up on one woman – worry about how to act on a first date the next┬átime!
