Ensure a Perfect First Date

A couple’s first date is certainly one of the most vital parts of a relationship. It is that time when two separate individuals find out if their chemistry and compatibility is strong enough to merge and form a couple. It is the only time to ace a first impression because it is the only time to make that first impression. Therefore, a lot of time and effort should go into preparing for the first date because it has to be absolutely perfect.


Everyone is attracted to different things. Some people might want their partner to look good. Others look for someone who’s got a great voice. A solid approach on a first date should be to ace in terms of sensuality. That is, to smell good, look physically attractive by going for a facial, doing your hair and even suiting up for the occasion if you have to. Maintain a good tone so that your voice comes out sexy and smooth. Present your date with a box of chocolates or a bottle of wine that should hit their sense of taste with something from you. Depending on where you’re from and if it is socially acceptable, you can shake hands or even kiss your date on the cheeks when you greet them. This means your skin has to be smooth and moisturized, and not sticky and sweaty.


It many ways, someone’s first opinion of you comes down to the way you present yourself in conversation. A gorgeous man who cannot hold an interesting conversation might scare of a wonderful woman who can only be captivated by a skillful conversationalist. Conversation is very much ‘social art’. On the first date, the idea is to listen more than anything else. If you speak too much, there might be words said that might be offensive to your date because you do not know much about them. Therefore, it is important to listen to them and understand the topics they enjoy, as well as knowing the things that they are offended by. That way, you have a better shot at impressing them if they want to go out with you again.

Lady & Gentleman

Most first dates can be very intimidating because both individuals are planning to spend time with someone they do not know much of at all. Although it is key to be yourself so that you can let the person know who you truly are, dating is still a game. Occasionally, people mess up because their nerves got in the way or intimidation turned them into somebody they are not. If you are the kind of person who might be affected by shyness, intimidation or anything else, keep in mind that the simplest way to behave is to go back to the basics: if you are a woman, be a lady. If you are a man, be a gentleman. Be polite, treat the other person very well and with a lot of respect. If they say or do something that is offensive or displeasing, be calm and understand that they too may be under a lot of pressure.

Most of all, remember that the aim of the game is to have as much fun as possible with the person you may potentially spend the rest of your life with!
