How to Make the Right Impression
We’re all familiar with the immense range of possible first date experiences. Within the territory of great surprises to disappointing disasters, lies a certain etiquette that when taken into consideration can turn a potential first date from catastrophic to charmed. Read on for some dos and don’ts on that first date.
Go Easy on the Expectations
While you may be looking for Mr. Right, projecting those needs onto him during the first date is the quickest way to get him to hightail it outta there. It’s OK to be excited and hopeful, but anything beyond that is unhealthy and just comes across as needy and creepy.
Put Your Phone on Vibrate
The constant texting and phone calls gets old extremely fast. It’s rude, inconsiderate, and sends the message that you’d rather be somewhere else, with someone else.
Bring the Dental Floss
This falls under the good hygiene clause, and let’s face it, it’s awful to find out that you’ve had a piece of food stuck in your teeth for hours while talking to someone. Instead of putting you and your date in an awkward position, take a trip to the bathroom for a quick dental check.
There’s no reason to pretend to be someone else when you’re looking for someone right for you. Skip the games and misdirection by showing him a glimpse of you in all your individualistic splendor.
“Know what you want. Have confidence. Be in the mood to be open and playful and good spirited.” – Lalita ext. 5408
Leave a Little Mystery
Showing all your cards on the first date will leave him with nothing to wonder about when you’re gone. Letting him work a little to get to know you will make him see you in a sexier light, rather than laying yourself out there like an all you can eat buffet.
“Be seductive but also be willing to let what you’re wanting to attract go. It’s something about this energy that makes you more attractive.” – Leo ext. 5265
First impressions stick and arriving late to anything, let alone a date, says that your time is more valuable than his.
While a drink or two may help you relax into the situation, getting plastered will give him an unforgettable first impression of you. Whether he thinks you have an alcohol problem or are just a hot mess, better to avoid an initial impression you’ll have to work hard to disprove later.
Dress the Hootchie
Looking and feeling confident and sexy does not mean showing the world all you’ve got. While he may appreciate the view, seeing you as an easy girl vastly increases the likelihood that this will be a short-lived relationship.
Turn the Conversation Into a Therapy Session
This includes psychoanalyzing him; no one enjoys being analyzed and judged, even from a friend, and it’s definitely not appropriate first date material.
