Going on a First Date? Here Are 4 Tips to Help Kindle the Romance

Going on first dates is a major milestone in relationships. Specifically because first dates allow couples to get to know each other. In order for a budding romance to have any hope of flourishing, it’s important to take your first date seriously. The introductions that happen on first dates involve much more than casual conversation. Other factors come into play when turning on the charm.


Be on Your Best Behavior:

            National Best-Selling Author Vanessa Van Edwards explains, “You’ve gotta get your mind right before a date. If we enter into a date feeling unworthy or defeated, those feelings will carry throughout the night… it’s so important to practice self-awareness before a date.” Here are a few tips on how to make first dates a success:


1.    Don’t Ramble:

People often get so nervous during dates they develop verbal diarrhea. If you catch yourself giving TMI, take a pause and catch your breath. Let the conversation flow organically instead of trying to force it.


2.    Take Things Slow:

            If the date is going really well, it’s easy to get ahead of yourself with emotion. You might end up declaring your love in ways too intimate for a first date. Be careful not to let this happen. Rushing things can lead to impulsive and regretful decisions.


3.    No Texting:

            If you’re going to spend time with someone, give them all of your attention. Trying to juggle your date with technology creates the impression that you’re emotionally unavailable. You might be physically present for the date, but your mind will be elsewhere.


4.    Keep Exes in the Past:

            Everything about a first date symbolizes new beginnings. Bringing up war stories from your past relationships is a total turn-off. It injects your date with trauma and makes it difficult to have a good time.



            First dates can feel like walking a tightrope. But regardless of how nerve-wracking they are, never lose sight of politeness during dates. While it’s good to place a lot of attention on having fun, don’t forget that the biggest goal to achieve is winning hearts and minds. Make yourself presentable, choose an enjoyable venue, and be courteous to any people you cross paths with during the date.
