Do's & Don'ts When Dating.
Updated: May 21, 2020
A lot of pressure rides on first dates. They’re basically like interviews, but instead of selling your skills, you’re selling your personality, which can feel a lot more difficult to do. You hope to come off as interesting and attractive, which is easier said than done. Adding dating apps to this can also be tricky, where dates are pretty much blind dates, so this can add to the stress. Basically, the first date could be, make or break when it comes to finding a romantic partner.
Things I've learnt from dating and I've learnt from others.
Don't wear anything that's uncomfortable just because it looks good, especially if he or she has a surprise in store and wants to do something or walk somewhere.
First meets are pretty important because this could really be a deal-breaker for one of you, so a good rule of thumb is to find out what you will be doing and where you will be going, this is something you could even tell a friend or family member about so you feel safer.
If you're going out anywhere and as the man, if you can open the door for the lady then do so, show her that you can be a gentleman.
So Do's And Dont's
Be on time.
There is nothing worse than your date stood waiting for you and you haven't turned up on time, always plan to get there a little early, it even shows you're keen to go on the date and that you're organised a little.
don't keep checking your phone.
This will just look rude to your date and they will think you're bored or looking for an excuse to leave.
Don't come on too strong.
coming on too strong is a huge turn-off for lots of people, and calling them babe or some other pet name, you've just met so use their first name or ask them before dating to see what they like and don't like to be called, this has usually worked very well for me and it comes over that you actually care what they think as you should.
Don’t, Focus on yourself.
The point of a first date is to get to know someone so don’t let this become one-sided by only talking about yourself. You’re trying to impress your date, so keep it about them and allow them to ask about you. It’s especially easy to fall into this trap when your date is a little on the shy side, so if they're a little shy, try asking more about them and they may start to open up.
Do, Choose your outfit carefully.
Dressing to casually can give off the impression you aren't really that bothered about impressing your date and that could turn them off you fast.
It’s obvious when someone isn’t really listening to you. Drifting eyes are a tell-tale sign of boredom, and that will make your date clam up and feel dull. Instead of worrying about what you might say next, focus on really listening to what your date is telling you.
Do, Use good manners.
Back to that opening-the-door moment, manners, or lack of, and it says a lot about a person. This goes for more than just putting a napkin on your lap before eating and not chowing down on your food with your food on show. The way you treat people around you during the date is very important. A please and thank you can go a long way, to waiters or excuse me when you pass someone on the way to the table, these are all common courtesy behaviours that you should be doing anyway, but especially on a first date when you’re building your character in your date’s eyes. Show that you are courteous to other people.
