10 Awesome First Date Ideas That Are Guaranteed To Impress
There's no way around it: First dates are a nerve-wracking occasion.
There's a lot to keep track of. For one, you need to look your best. You have to wear a nice outfit, groom yourself, smell nice, and potentially tidy up your place, depending on whether there's a chance your date will get to see it at the end of the evening.
Then you have to show up on time. Once you're there, you have to be your wittiest, most impressive self. Make your date laugh, but don't dominate the conversation. Ask your date questions, but don't act like an interrogator. Loosen up, but don't go too wild. Be yourself, but don't expose anything too out there.
Then there's the end of the date. Do you hug? Do you shake hands? Do you make plans to meet again? Do you kiss? Do you, er, proceed to other things? (Like, say, a first-date hookup?)
And if none of that happens, was the date a colossal failure, or was it a success where things are simply moving slowly?
And then, whatever happens on the date, what happens the next day? Do you wait to get in touch? Do you send a text message immediately to gauge the situation or set up a second date?
On top of all these things to keep in mind, it usually falls on you, as a man, to come up with an idea for what this monumental first date will even be. Of course, sometimes women want to make the first move and will ask you on a date of their choosing (in which case, be a gentleman -- you can pick the second date), but chances are, you'll have a say in what the date looks like.
