5 Amazing First Date Tips that will lock your second!

The first dates are the most difficult ones whether it is online or physical. You feel so intimidated to make it perfect. A constant nervousness soaking your throat makes you miss your second chance even though you liked the person a lot.

But the experts have done the hard work for you so that you can eat and flirt on your first date and lock the second one. You wouldn’t have to pretend to be a fake personality and that will be the biggest relief.

Read these tips to know what the experts have to say.

1. Initiate a two-way conversation

Don’t just speak. Listen. Ask them about their hobbies and passion so it doesn’t look like you’re just trying to get them to bed.

When you don’t know how to start, just ask them a question from the list until you find something common to talk about.

2. Don’t be touchy

Remember, it’s the first date. A single wrong touch can ruin your date. If you accidentally touch something that you shouldn’t, apologize immediately.

Touching the person often signals that you’re willing to take this relationship forward but it shouldn’t be in a sexual way.

3. Enjoy the moment

You are on a date. You cannot take your office pressures or family problems along with you there. Remember, you are there to enjoy.

Keep yourself away from phones, making videos, or uploading social media stories constantly. You can do all of that on your second date. You need to make your date feel special for now.

4. Avoid criticism

Nobody prefers a negative partner. So, stay away from nagging about your boss or your roommate. Sharing some worries is fine but constant criticism will turn off your date.

It portrays that you’re a pessimist and what do they have to do with your problem anyway?

5. Use humor

Like said, humor plays the master card on a date. Whatever you talk about, if there is humor added to it, the entire environment will feel joyful and light-hearted.

You can also use humor to flirt a little. But beware, don’t use hard humor. Things are only humorous when both of you agree upon something.

So, when’s your second date?

First dates give you an adrenaline rush like no other. It is a natural process because you want no mistakes here.

I hope these questions have taken off the pain of calling your friends and asking them about tips. When you ask these questions, just be yourself. After asking the question, you can also share your own opinions irrespective of whether or not it matches with them. 

If all goes well, it’s time for some bragging (after all it required so much hard work). So, pop the bottle with your friends while you discuss your awesome first date experience!

Oh, and of course, all the best for your second date! 😉
