8 Tips To Succeed A First Date: Part II
Last week’s article advising gentlemen on how to succeed a first date was a big success, therefore we are talking to women this week, focusing on helping you ladies put all odds by your side.
Being fashionably late has been a thing for a very long time. Being late is impolite and will for sure bother the gentleman you are meeting, your date can start on a tense note, which would be a shame.
We advise men to always be there 10 minutes before the date is supposed to start and women to get there right on time.
2. Physical Appearance
A lady going on a first/second date should always take more time to get ready. Try on a few options, get your hair/nails done, you might think your hair or outfit is nice and looks great the way it is. But if it looks like it does every other day that’s not good enough! Make an extra effort and consider your evening like a special occasion.
Women tend to be a lot more curious about everything. The background, the job, past relationships, what sort of relationship the gentleman is after and so on. Some men will be receptive to your questions, but some won’t enjoy the interrogatory and might find you intrusive.
Remember, this is not an interview. Take time to connect and enjoy the moment. Avoid asking specific questions that are too personal but rather stay vague and let them share whatever comes out naturally.
4. Leave your diet at home
Sharing or imposing your diet routine on first dates is a massive turn off to most men. When you are invited to share a meal with someone and accept the invitation, you need to honour it and enjoy what’s on the menu.
You could either forget about your diet and work out the day after, or if your diet cannot be disturbed at that stage for whatever reason, suggest a drink or coffee instead.
5. Keep your phone in your purse
Both men and women are addicted to their phones nowadays, the social media activity can highly disturb your social interactions.
If there is an emergency you will get a call, otherwise your texts, social media and so on, can wait a couple of hours.
6. Take it one day at the time
Generally speaking, women are known to be more hopeless romantics than men. We totally understand that if you fancy the gentleman you went on a date with, you could start fantasying about a future together. This could lead you into calling/texting a bit more than you should. Be careful not to rush things up just because you want to be in a relationship.
Getting to know one another is essential, in order to decide whether you like each other and both want a relationship with one another.
If you are a natural flirt, perfect. You know what and how to do it, on the other hand, if you are not a flirty person don’t pretend to be, it won’t feel natural or genuine.
What you can do though, is relax and go with the flow. You could express your flirt by physical contact, simply by caressing his arm, holding eye contact a bit longer, hold his arm if you are walking in the street.
8. Lipstick is powerful
Being confident is one of the most attractive assets you can have, feminine confidence is powerful and can easily be expressed with red lipstick.
‘’Lipstick is the most valuable weapon in a woman’s make-up kit. It has the power to transform the appearance and mood of the person wearing it, and, at the same time, arouses the admiration of everybody else.’’ Glamorously quoted by Monica bellucci.
