How to avoid a disastrous first datePosted on: April 4, 2013 16:59:26
The very uttering of the words 'first date' is likely to send shivers down the spines of many UK singles.
Meeting up with someone for the first time – particularly if it is a blind date – can be an incredibly scary experience. If you've had some disastrous dates in the past, there are a few things you can do - or not do - to make sure that these problems don't arise again.
Prepare - Before you go, make sure you have both decided on a plan. While you don't have to formulate a full itinerary, having an idea where the date will start, how you are going to get back and anywhere else you could go if the date goes well will help it run a lot smoother.
Girls, raid your wardrobe a couple of days before the event so you're not panicking last minute. Decide on two outfits and run them by a friend to make sure they get their seal of approval.
Make the effort - Even if you're going for a coffee you want to look as though you have put a bit of thought into the event. Bringing a small gift, adding a dash of lipstick or just putting on your favourite outfit will not only make you feel more confident, but will give a great first impression.
Be rude - Not every singleton you go out with is going to be your cup of tea, but there is no need to be blunt or downright rude to them. If things aren't going as well as you had imagined, simply find the right moment to make your move, thank them for their time and let them know that you have to go.
Talk about sex - Bringing up more intimate elements of a relationship on the first date often doesn't bode well for things to come. Regardless of how quickly things are hotting up, giving it a bit of time to get to know one another better before discussing sex is recommended.
Sandy Weiner, Huffington Post's 'chief love officer', advises men: "Do show us that you're physically attracted to us, but don't make it the primary focus of why you're into us. When you ease into the physical relationship, most of us respond better."
