A First Date

A First Date

First dates are magical – or a nightmare.  Always remember to relax!

What can be more emotionally distressing that the thought of a first date? Not a whole lot, I can tell you! Even after you have made it past the initial stress of asking out that pretty girl or handsome guy, you are still faced with the pressure of the next step – making the date a success!

A first date can be incredibly nerve-wrecking, but it can also be an amazing and enjoyable experience! Though you may be asking yourself thousands of questions and stressing out, it is completely normal to be apprehensive. What will he/she think about me? Will I like them? How should I act? Is the date going to be fun or boring? However, try your best to ignore these questions and have confidence in yourself. Relax, have a good attitude, and hope for the best!

Do not panic too much about that first date, because it is likely that you will have a wonderful time! A first date is a great way to determine whether or not you have chemistry with that person you asked out, so getting to know each other is essential. In order to do this, come prepared with many interesting questions and conversation topics. Additionally, make sure you use good listening and speaking skills and are respectful to them the entire time.

One of the biggest mistakes people make on a first date is pretending to be someone they aren’t in order to impress the person they are on the date with. Though it might work for a short period of time, they will eventually see through it and realize you were being dishonest with them. Not only does this hurt the other person, but it hurts you in the process too.  You want to find someone who loves you for who you truly are, not the person you pretend to be.

A first date may have you stressing out, but just remember to have confidence in yourself and know that everything will work out for the best!
