The first impression is really important. The bad impression that you’re gonna have for the first time takes your chance away for a second date. Actually the things that you should be careful about to prevent something like that is pretty simple. When you decide to date someone who you are talking on the phone or on the internet for the first time, you face with some questions in your mind.
*If you want to buy present, wait for a couple of dates.
Psychologist are suggestion that buying present after a couple of dates with your partner. Picking presents on the first date is hard because you know the person just superficially and it is just the start of somethings. Also, this could put your date in a hard position. Waiting for a while before you take a step is wiser.
*Do not talk with your date like you are interviewing with her/him.
You can talk about your family, your friends, where do you live or what do you do in your spare time at the beginning. Find some mutual interests and continue talking on these topics. For example you can find a movie or a kind of music that you both like, and when you talk about that, you can impress your date. Think like that you just meet one of your friends and talking with her/him.
*Avoid questions that would cause tension.
You should be careful about what do you say after that awkward silence.
For example, you should not ask “So, what do you think about me?”,”Am I like what do you thought I would be?” kind of questions. If you ask these kind of questions, you may scare your date and may not have a chance for the second date. Also, these kind of question may lead for your date to think that you are insecure.
*Be careful about your body language.
On your first date you also should be careful about your body language that says a lot about you. The way you walk and the way you look give a lot of clues about you.
Look into your date’s eyes when you are talking to him/her, don’t look somewhere else. Sit upright and look self-confidence.
Don’t forget that the perfect first date is the key to a relationship.
