1. Dare to Speak Up.

Nobody likes a pushover, so if the guy tells you he has planned the date at a sushi restaurant and you don’t like fish, or he wants to stay at a cocktail lounge but you don’t drink, tell him! It’ll only look weird if you tell him all that later you’re already seated and waiting to order. Same goes for being decisive. Don’t let him choose for you from the menu when he asks you what do you want.If you see something you would love to try, go for it!

2. If you can’t walk,breathe,talk and eat in it,DO NOT wear it!

Understandably, you want to look your best, but a first date is not the right time to take those new stilettos out for a “test drive”, or wear that clothes that’s a little too tight. Why? Because first dates are always anxiety-filled enough and being uncomfortable in your dress only makes it worse. Plus, you don’t wanna look awkward and being wobbly as you are not be able to walk a few blocks on a nice night because your heels are too high?

4. Know your alcohol limits.

I don’t think this needs to be explained any further, but keep this in mind: Having to be carried home by someone you barely know isn’t fun (nor is acting funny,even shameful at the dinner table). Sure, a cocktail or two is okay and loosen the mood, but don’t drink too much.

5. Don’t obsess over your look.

Nobody wants to waste valuable date time running to bathroom to brush your hair, redo your makeup, or check yourself in the mirror every half hour? Focus your energy on making solid conversation and not worrying about how you look. Put all the effort into your appearance as much as you want before you meet your date.

6.PLEASE Put Your Phone Away.

One of the most important is this ladies: If you obsessively check your phone every two minutes could be a deal breaker. There’s nothing more annoying and rude than trying to have a conversation with a person who’s constantly staring at a screen. Checking your social accounts can wait—and certainly don’t post anything about your date in real time, or snap any candid pics when they’re not looking. That’s just odd.

7. Be genuine and real.

You are expecting honesty and certain level of transparency from your date, to which you need to offer the same. Of course it doesn’t mean you have to share your darkest secrets though.

8. Do not mention your previous boyfriends.

Believe me,you don’t want to resurrect the wrongs of your past relationships because you can inadvertently reflect light on possible previous mistakes. Besides, you would like to move forward, not back.

9. Avoid praising your children, if you have them.

If everything goes well, your date will be given the opportunity to meet them and form his own views.

10. At the end of the date, come up with something you talked about earlier.

You can let him know if you want to see him again by bringing up something you two talked about earlier (“So when do I get to see your puppy?”). Ready for a kiss? Don’t jump out of the car when he drives you home — move closer to him and keep eye contact. Let him decide!
