How to prepare for first date with girl you met on Tinder
So you managed to get matched on Tinder and had a successful chat with the girl you like using these Tinder conversations examples found on this site. Now, it is time to finally meet this chick.
A first date is always an exciting thing, both positive and negative. One is for sure, we are eagerly looking forward to finally meet our potential partner. Will we have lots of common to talk about? Is that place good for the first date? What should I wear etc. These are just few of the questions we all ask ourselves before that meeting.
First of all, such doubts before a first date actually are completely normal. Because they force us to prepare well for that date. So take a look at some tips I am giving you so you can be ready when that moment comes.
Tip 1: Choose a place where conversation is possible
A popular place for the first date is cinema. You know better that it is not a good place because the purpose of the date is to talk and get to know each other. The cinema however stands in that way, it limits communication in every way. Choose better and lively environment in which casual and entertaining conversations can be carried out. Suitable for this purpose are cafes, bars and perhaps restaurants if you have a steady job and enough cash.
Tip 2: Be punctual
As mentioned at the beginning, excitement is at peak before the first date – which is the case for both sides. It intensifies if you or her waits longer than necessary. Make sure to come at least 5 minutes before the agreed time at the meeting point. Otherwise, unpunctuality can quickly leave a bad first impression.
Tip 3: Listen carefully and ask questions
There are a lot of possible conversations and topics on the first date that you can exchange. The emphasis in this sentence is exchanged, because when a guy or a girl talks just about himself all the time and does not leave any room for other side to reply it becomes boring and exhausting so there is a big chance that first date also becomes the last date. It is also better to simply listen and ask following questions, which shows interest in the opposite side and signals that you want to learn more about the person.
Tip 4: Honest Compliments
Honesty is also the highest priority here. Even a small compliment shortly after seeing each other such as “You look good” can make an impression and simplify the beginning of a date.
Tip 5: Do not let your phone distract you
Of course, we are accustomed to being accessible all the time and everywhere. On the first date, however, nothing else counts but your partner. This means: No distraction! No calls, no messages, no quick glance at the mobile phone. Constant playing on the smartphone is evidence of disinterest and boredom and even if it is not so, your date could interpret it like that. So just turn it off or silence it.
Tip 6: Alcohol is ok – but only moderately
A small glass of sparkling wine can make you feel more relaxed and liberated. The best thing is to drink alcohol only when your date is drinking alcohol. Just don’t overdo with it, you want to keep the evening in good memories.
Tip 7: Just be casual
A first date should not be filled with boring and serious subjects. Religion, politics, sad situations and tragedies are a big NO! Instead, tell your date some funny situations from your past (your ex-girlfriends should not play a role), tell her about your hobbies, but also ask her about her hobbies.
Just be confident and your first date will be a complete success! Good luck!
