So are you going on a first date and not sure of what to do or get for the young lady in question? With limited dating experience but a whole lot of research and ideas, I can offer just the few tips.
Show up on time : if you are like me and usually nervous on these first dates, that means you get confused as to the time and are either too early or too late. Calm down and be punctual. Leave early enough so you are not in a rush and arrive say 5-10 minutes before the agreed upon time.
Choose your outfit wisely : I would suggest that you wear something comfortable but not too casual unless that’s the kind of place that you are meeting her. A nice pair of jeans with a formal shirt isn’t a bad look. And it makes it easy for you relax in if it a comfortable fit and not too tight.
Shave, shower, shampoo : I shouldn’t even have to say this. But yeah, a fresh shaven look with the hair washed and shampooed. Also wear the right amount of deodorant and aftershave lotion.
Have a plan for the date : Meet up for coffee first, maybe a little light shopping in the mall while you stroll around and then going for lunch and or a movie at the end. That sounds like a really good plan to me.
Be a gentleman : Show her that you were raised with manners. Open doors for her, help her to her seat – simple things.
Gift : Give her something simple yet pretty as a gift. You don’t want to give her an expensive item on the first date but something simple is nice. Maybe even a small box of chocolates for her to take home and enjoy post the date so she can keep having the sweet taste and smile while reflecting on the day with you. That’s what I would do.
