A first date is very important because it’s the time to make a long-lasting impression and see if you’re compatible with each other. Make sure you plan ahead in order to create the perfect first date that you two will be sure to remember. Follow these tips from Style Konsult and you’re on your way to a second date.
Choose a Simple Location
You may think that choosing a fancy restaurant or a day full of activities is a good way to impress a date. However, these locations can often be overwhelming and can create a lot of pressure on two people who just met each other. Instead, take the lead and choose a location where you and your date can talk easily and authentically so you can get to know each other, like a coffee shop or casual restaurant. Be sure to make a reservation in advance so you don’t have to scramble to find another date spot if it’s booked up.
Use these Talking Points
Before heading out to meet your date, think of things that you two could talk about to learn about each other. Show your interest in them by asking about their hobbies, career, and family. Start off with easy questions like,
- “What do you like to do in your free time?”
- “What’s your job like?”
These will get the conversation flowing and make your date feel at ease. When there’s a lull in conversation, ask fun, thought-provoking questions like,
- “If you won the lottery, what’s the first thing you would buy?”
- “If you could meet any famous person, dead or alive, who would you choose?”
These are light and fun, but can create great opportunities to get to know your date better.
