Make it a two way conversation

Sure, you have to tell them about yourself, but make sure you're asking your date questions about their own accomplishments and hobbies. Things can get iffy if you only talk about yourself.

Be mindful of touchiness

You might think that touching them a lot on the first date shows that you're into them. Not the case, says relationship expert April Masini. On a first date, touch should be limited and only natural, friendly, and warm.

Be present in the moment

You don't need to check those texts right now, no matter how much pings you are receiving from your circle. Ignoring outside distractions will show your date you're invested in the shared experience and make them feel valued.

If your date wants to split the bill, go for it

It's always a nice gesture to offer to treat your date, but if they want to split the bill, be open to that. We live in a society that allows for egalitarian partnerships!

Dress to impress

You don't need to go overboard, but be sure to do the basics: showering, shaving, and spritzing on little cologne. Wear a simple-yet-polished outfit like dark jeans, a blazer, and loafers, and you'll look put-together without seeming like you're trying too hard.

Humor is your friend

Joking around with your date is a great way to break the ice. Everyone likes funny guys. Keep it light and flirty. This shouldn't be too hard. Find out something you both agree on.

We want the best for you in your first date and that's where we have curated this basic list to follow on your first date.
