Tips for a First Date
Guy sees girl he likes whether physically, by recommendations from friends, family or even colleagues, or via social which is the most popular way of connecting with people easily these days, thanks to advancement in technology.
Conversation has been smooth on calls and texts on social media and as expected, a date is set. While this seems to be the next big step in the friendship, a first date could be nerve-wracking. This feeling is completely natural.
A first date can be like a job interview. You want to look your best; first impression they say matters. In fact, you should treat each first date as a special occasion.
What a First Date Should Be
The purpose of a first date is not to satisfy all your cravings. It is not the time to ‘empty his pocket’ neither is it a group hangout. Some ladies are guilty of this. Hey guys, the first date is not for you to take her to your house to ‘chill’ or ‘explore’ each other- then that’s just a hookup.
The sole purpose of the first date should be to have a good time, find out more about the other person (that is why going to the movies is a terrible idea for a first date) and investigate a romantic potential- whether or not you are physically attracted to this person. Finally, the first date is to develop friendship- most relationships start from here. If you are like me, the outcome of a first date will determine if there would be a second date, a continued communication or simply allow the connection die a natural death.
What Questions Should I Ask on a First Date?
You can ask any of these questions in no particular order. Just don’t sound like you are interrogating this person. Allow the conversation to flow naturally.
