Do’s and Dont’s of First Dates

What’s up bosses and boss chics?! It’s been a long time since I posted any blogs that were relationship oriented, possibly before I switched to the new domain! However I had a request from a teenage girl who wanted to get help with how to carry herself on her first big date. How cute right!?! Of course I got all excited like it was me lol, so I came up with my own list of rules of what to do and what not to do on your first date 🙂

Speaking of first dates, I can honestly say I never really had a true first date in high school. I went through this really rebellious streak in my teenage years, so there weren’t about to be any guys meeting the rents and #allat before taking me out lol… I did it on the sneak! #DontJudgeMe! Lol but any way, my list doesn’t just stop at those tender first dates that high schoolers go on, it covers the do’s and dont’s of dating a new guy period.  Read more after the break and leave comments of what you’d put on your list!

  • Be you. Don’t go into it pretending to be someone you’re not just to make the right impression. The first impression is the one that sticks and you’d want it to represent the real you.
  • Dress to impress. But stick to your style. Back to the first impression rule…
  • Stick to what you know. Not a sports fan? Don’t act like you are. Don’t know about cars? Don’t pretend to. Stick to topics you know and don’t pretend to like certain things just because he/she does.
  • Be cheap for once. Hey it’s the first date, if they asked you out let them pay! *shrugs* lol
  • Be realistic. Yes everyone pretty much knows the qualities they want in a husband or wife, but it’s JUST the first date. You don’t have to assess every little thing to see if their marriage material lol.
  • Don’t make it all about you. The first thing to turn me off is someone who talks about themself consistently. If you are all you care about, there was no need for the date lol.
  • Don’t give your whole life story. If you tell it all on the first date, what’s left to tell if there’s a second?
  • Leave any exes where they are. Do I really need to explain? No one cares about the exes. Point blank.
  •  Ask random, open ended questions. I’ve found that when you ask rehearsed questions, you get rehearsed answers. The best way to find out more about a person is to ask questions they don’t normally get asked. You’ll have them thinking quick on their feet, and I’m sure the responses will further the conversation more 🙂
  • Let your hair down. Have fun!! It’s JUST a first date. If it doesn’t end like you’d hoped, oh well! But if it does then great! However recognize that the quickest way to guarantee a bad date is to be too uptight or spend the whole time stressing about if they like you or not. And it’s NEVER that serious 😉
