First Date Tips For Men – What to Do, Where to Go, And What to Know

The first date can make you nervous and wondering what to do. You don’t want to make a fool of yourself. You want to be able to win her over and have her want you. Relax. We have all been in this position before. When I was younger, the first date always made me nervous.

Would I say the right things, would I be able to get her attracted to me?

The thing is, women feel the same pressure and go through the same kind of thoughts. In many ways, most women will have it worse than you do. The thing to remember is to not put the pressure on yourself. If you see a date as what it really is, a chance to go out and have a good time, you will take a mountain of pressure off of your shoulders.

And they will thank you for it.

Here are a couple of first date tips to help you out…

1. Instead of going out and doing the movie and dinner kind of routine, do something a little more relaxed and comfortable. A simple coffee shop will do. A lot of pressure comes off when you are in a situation that seems less like a date. And this works for her as well. She will be more likely to respond to you IF she doesn’t feel pressured to do so.

2. Have the state of mind, that it’s all about having a good time. Don’t think about the future or whether or not she will go out with you again BEFORE you even have your first date. When you are in this frame of mind, then you don’t worry about the little things.

The first date can make you nervous and this is natural. There are many ways that you can learn how to take the pressure off and techniques that will virtually guarantee that it is a success.

5 Online Dating Tips I Wished I’d Known When I Was Younger

5 Online Dating Tips I Wished I’d Known When I Was Younger

By all accounts, I’m an online dating veteran. I joined my first dating site in the early 1990s, when people used forums and bulletin boards to find matches online, and have been on and off dating sites ever since. When I look back at my very first dates, it’s easy to see where things could have gone wrong.

Tip 1: Chat face to face

Back in the olden days when online dating wasn’t socially acceptable, people often were reluctant to post pictures or videos online – with reason. However, these days are long gone and you should be on your guards if the person you’re chatting avoids showing his or her face. Ask for one or more pictures at the very least if their profile has none. Be prepared to send or show pictures of you too, in return, if only to build trust.

If your relationship progresses, you should always chat face-to-face online before meeting in person. You’ll get to know one another so much better than through written messages: studies have shown that up to 93 percent of communication effectiveness depends on non-verbal cues. It’s also the best way to expose people using PhotoShopped pictures or online dating scammers hiding behind stolen identities.

If your date resists an online video chat, don’t take no for an answer. It’s free to chat online over Skype or Google Talk for example. MSN Messenger and Yahoo Messenger also allow video chats – all you need is a webcam. With FaceTime coming to the iPad 2 and iPhone 4, you have more choices than ever before.

Tip 2: Get his or her contact details

As the conversation progresses, you’ll make arrangements for a first date. Make sure you swap contact details ahead of time. You should be on your guards if your date resists giving their phone number. Online dating scammers living overseas will often push back on this.

Always give your date a courtesy call ahead of time to confirm time and place. It also helps validate that the number you have is indeed theirs.

Tip 3: Meet in a public place

Choose a public space where you can be seen for your first date. Coffee shops and food courts are ideal because they’re busy places. And if you’re looking for something a little more romantic, make sure you avoid quiet or poorly lit areas.

Please keep this in mind all at times. It’s easy to get carried away as your date progresses, moving from a public busy spot a secluded area. Be on your guards at all times, from start to finish, no matter who charming he is.

Tip 4: It’s OK to say no

This tip is for you if you don’t like to say ‘no’ or tend to look for ways to accommodate others. When you feel under pressure, it can be even harder to voice your opinion and stand up for yourself. If you think this could be an issue, practice your lines ahead of time in front of a mirror. It’ll make it easier to turn down requests firmly yet politely on the day.

Tip 5: Tell your friends

Last but not least, let your close friends or parents know when and where you’ll be seeing someone. Make sure they have your date’s name and contact number in case something goes wrong.

Ideally, you could have a friend call you when you’re with your date – it’s a great ‘get out card’ if the date isn’t going to plan and you’re looking for an excuse to leave. Make sure you mention you’re seeing ‘so and so’ on the call to your friend to make it clear to your date that others know where you are.

Together, these and other dating tips can keep you safe when you’re out and about.
