We all want our first dates to be just like in the movies. He taking you out in a fancy restaurant and you blushing with all the compliments showered by him. Real life is much different from these visual storytelling but we know how to make it work our way. Don’t get nervous with the thought of going on a first date. Here are 10 simple ways to be more confident on a first date!
1. Don’t over think it
When you are going on a first date, you really don’t know whether you’ll like the guy or not. So, it’s better to not over think it and just enjoy yourself.
2. Dress comfortably
How you look depends on how you carry yourself and not on what you wear. Be it a pair of jeans or a dress, wear clothes in which you are comfortable.
3. Give yourself a pep talk
Look into the mirror and talk to yourself. You have faced college admissions interviews and broken hearts, so you can also get through this.
4. Don’t expect too much
He might not be that funny as you thought or maybe you want to kiss him on the first date but he might not. So, in this case lowering your expectations is not a bad thing to do.
5. Listen music
Play all your favorite Taylor Swift, Britney Spears and Katy Perry numbers while waiting for him to pick you up. You’ll feel more confident and pumped up.
6. Be yourself
Don’t pretend to be someone who you are not. Just be yourself and let him like you for what you are. There is no point in pretending!
7. Don’t take pressure
Don’t be scared of meeting someone new. Let go of the pressure, go out and meet new people as you don’t know you might end up meeting your soul mate.
8. Keep your phone aside
This one is quite basic! We understand that your friends are excited to know the details of your first date but you can discuss everything once you’re back home. Put your phone away and interact with the guy.
This is what you are here for! Smile and have an amazing time together.
10. Be open
All what dating requires is patience and opening up to newer experiences. Once you have understand this fact, you are ready for your date.
