What to Expect on a First Date
A first date can be nerve-wracking, but it also shouldn’t be stressful. By taking a few simple steps, you can avoid some common first-date jitters and ensure that the date goes smoothly.
1. The Location
A good place to start your conversation will set the tone for the whole night, so make sure you choose somewhere that’s neutral and low-pressure. Then, you can focus on the fun and getting to know your date better.
2. The Conversation
A great way to get a conversation going is to ask your date questions that are meaningful and personal. This will help them feel more comfortable and reveal more about themselves, says Greer.
3. The Conversation Goes Deep
One of the most obvious signs a first date went well is when you start to discuss topics other than what you originally planned for the date. This shows that you are comfortable with each other on a deeper level and that you want to spend time together.
4. The Conversation Flows
Sometimes the best sign that a first date went well is simply that the conversation flowed easily and you were laughing together.
You may have stumbled on some of your words or made a few mistakes, but if you can see that things are progressing and both of you seem to be having fun, this is definitely a sign that the date went well.
5. The Conversation Becomes Sexy
If your date is making you feel comfortable and doesn’t mind having a little sex, this is a good sign that they are interested in you and that they have a solid grasp on what you are looking for. It’s not a bad thing to have some physical contact with your date, but it is important to have the right kind of sex and to be aware of how you feel around them at all times.
