I mean, smell good quite literally like a flower, dress up and wear your confidence on your collar. If you feel good about your outfit, you’ll look good
Comfort is key
Create a comfortable and friendly environment for your date. A warm smile is an added bonus. Ask them warm up questions and smart follow ups to show you are listening. Skipping and hoping from one question to the next will turn you into a boring date. Find interesting first date icebreakers, research on a topic that’s of interest to your date, be the beauty with brains, comfortable physically, emotionally and intellectually, men love that!
What to take
There is no golden recipe for who eats what or when, with lots of choices of food and drinks to pick from, take whatever you are comfortable with. Whatever you do, don’t order for spaghetti unless you know how to eat it without slurping your way through the mean – eeeew!
Keep your phone away!
Under no circumstance should your phone get into the way of your date unless of course you want to cut the date short and never see your date again. On this auspicious day priority is to be given to the wonderful person in front of you. They deserve your full attention and concentration for making time to be with you. If you’re expecting an important call, let your date know in the beginning so that it will be easier to excuse yourself. Don’t take too long on the call otherwise it might be interpreted wrongly.
Bring your own Money
Never forget your wallet at home and ensure you have money in it! Enough to cover your transport costs to the date and back home. If you drive to the date venue please ensure your car works well, don’t run out of fuel at the venue or have a flat battery after the date.
I know you are thinking about the golden rule of dating and time. Never arrive earlier than the man and keep him waiting just to test his patience. Its true by not arriving on time you ignite the hunting instinct in a man, isn’t that what this dating thing is all about? While that may be the case you want to balance between stretching a man’s limit and igniting his hunters instinct. It’s a delicate balancing act that requires an understanding of your date’s temperament. The rule is don’t arrive before him give it a +5 minutes rule long enough to make him anxious but not irritated.
It’s not always that you meet someone for the first time. If your date went very well and you enjoyed yourself, mention it in passing that you really enjoyed yourself and thank him for one thoughtful thing he did that you sincerely appreciated. Depending on your chemistry, you shall be opening the door to a second date and a third and a fourth, and who knows wedding bells could be ringing soon!
Ever heard of the 90-day rule? Its old fashioned and tiring.

This provides an opportunity for a man’s curiosity to grow and gives him a challenge. Men love a challenge. Meanwhile, you shall be learning him and getting the opportunity to grow strong with him. The trick is to keep the hope alive that one day soon he will have you in his arms but it shall be on your terms. The most successful first dates end with a deep look into each other’s eyes and a simple good bye!
