Every man has experienced first date jitters at some point. Everyone has experienced that disgusting feeling when you think you're going to ruin everything, and you only get one chance in a billion. We're sure the anxiety of meeting a girl you care about for the first time is well worth it. Here are the best tips to make your date perfect.
A Date Isn't Just a Hangout
Let's go back to the backstory, which is - you're supposed to ask a girl out on a date. Reread that line. The girl has to understand where she's going and why, she has to understand that you have feelings for her, not just want to play together at CasinoChan or go to the movies. If you didn't reveal your intentions early on, you stand a good chance of being in the friendzone forever. It's better to get rejected than to be "just friends" with the girl you love.
Also, you have to be honest, or there are guys who ask their girlfriends out and they don't realize until the last moment where they've gotten to. Relationships become more than cool after that. By the way, it is best to give flowers at the stage of the date invitation. We have two considerations:
When you give flowers on the date itself, you're doomed to carry the bouquet behind your girlfriend, which reduces your ability to communicate, to gesture (if she does, she's not comfortable either).
You can order flower delivery by putting a note with an invitation in the bouquet - it's conservative, but romantic. These things show that you are serious, remove the ambiguity.
Think Beforehand About the Route
It is desirable to warn the girl in advance about where you are going, so that you are not going to skate on rollers, but eventually go to a restaurant.
Just decide on the place in advance. Spontaneous decisions are good, but not for dates. After all, the girl will also be prepared and she might find you crazy, at least because she will feel awkward in a high-end restaurant wearing shorts and a T-shirt. Also remember that you can create a romantic mood not only in expensive places but also in nature. A good assistant in this matter will be the music, but it should be chosen wisely. Do not rely on the tastes of your girlfriend (you can err on her account of ignorance), and especially do not rely on your own taste in music - not all girls like black metal. Choose some popular tracks with millions of fans.
Wear the Best You've Got
A date is an important moment in a relationship between two people. And the girl will prepare for it, waiting for you to appreciate her. And if at that moment, you show up in your old clothes, she won't see the man of her dreams, but a man who hasn't prepared to meet her. You also have to wear the best you have in your closet. Something you may have to buy more. Now let's explain the basics.
Shoes are the first thing that catches your eye when you meet a new person. The age-tested choice is shoes that are made entirely of genuine leather. And we would not recommend buying expensive shoes in some chain stores - most often they wear out quickly.
Never wear belts with huge plaques with images of buffalo, skulls or guitars on the first date. The belt should not draw too much attention to itself. You should choose a classic version of leather - stylish but not flashy.
Here, as in everything, the main thing is to know the measure. They complement the image, make it less austere or, conversely, give a more presentable look, if necessary. It all depends on the accessory that you choose. We recommend choosing them carefully so as not to look ridiculous against the background of a beautiful friend. Bracelets chosen wisely are ideal.
You don't need alcohol to be brave. The potential dangers of drinking alcohol before a date are obvious: You might be greeted as a drunk and cocky jerk. The smell from one drink is pretty strong, too.
Don't Get Too Worked up
One last word of advice: don't be nervous. Be prepared for a date to go wrong. It's not the end of the world. You'll have many more dates, and over-excitement can diminish the joy of what's going on. A date may be a challenge for a man. But it is also a test for his woman. Besides going out of your way to seem perfect, look closely at the girl. Maybe you're not at all on her way, or she does not like your helpfulness and over-caring. Keep it simple and enjoy the moment.
