Get a boost of confidence before your datePosted on: December 14, 2012 15:33:36
Going on a first date can fill some people with dread, as they envisage awkward conversations and a person on the other side of the table who they have nothing in common with.
In reality, if you have arranged a date after meeting online, the hardest part is done. They obviously liked what they saw from your profile and enjoyed talking to you over email and on the phone, so just relax - this is the fun part.
Female UK singles who are feeling a bit anxious and self-conscious should make sure they have plenty of time to prepare before a date, so they're feeling completely relaxed and ready to wow.
It is a good idea to decide what you are wearing beforehand, because a last-minute scramble to find something you like can make you stressed before you even get there.
Go in something you know you feel comfortable in so you aren't worried about it being too clingy, too revealing or feeling too exposed. You don't need to buy something new, in fact, wearing something you know you feel good in and have received compliments for in the past is much better than splashing the cash on a dress you will spend all night fidgeting uncomfortably in.
The temptation can often be to go overboard with makeup as well, but stick to what you know works. Your date will want to see you as you really are and if you look like a painted doll when you normally look fresh-faced and natural, you won't feel like yourself.
If it isn't the outfit but the thought of striking up conversation with your date that is making your palms sweat, coming up with a couple of questions or topics just to break the ice can help ease you into the first few minutes.
Avoid over-planning though, as it isn't a job interview and if you aren't relaxed, you could end up making your date feel on edge and turn it into a stilted question and answer session.
Remember, they are in the same position as you and are probably nervous as well. So, take a deep breath and sport your biggest smile to put your date at ease, prove how confident you are and more importantly, woo your potential new love interest.
