5 First Date Rules
Do you know the 5 first date rules? After finally getting her to agree to go on a date with you, how can you make sure things go smoothly? The 5 first date rules will make sure you show up prepared and hopefully give you a head start at landing that second date.
- Have a plan. Women don’t want to go on a date with someone who has them making all the decisions of where to go, what to eat, and all of those extra details that make it a date. The number one first date rule is for you to make the plans. You can ask her what kind of food she likes to make sure you don’t end up picking a seafood restaurant if she hates seafood; but after that, it’s all up to you. Make the reservations; buy the tickets to the movie; plan where you’ll go after the movie and so on. It’s more than just a first date rule; it shows her you can make plans and take charge at showing her a good time.
Be a gentleman. This may seem more like common sense rather than one of the five first date rules, but you should be reminded to be a gentleman. It’s the first date, so the last thing you want to do is come off to strong or come off as a total sleaze. Keep the physical contact to a minimum and keep it respectful. If she is going to let you go further than that and actually let you score, she will let you know loud and clear. Be patient and don’t get grabby. You can touch her hand or arm while in conversation or even lightly touch the small of her back as you lead her through the restaurant. But once you try reaching for the more private regions, you can guarantee the first date is the only date you’ll be having with her.
- Give her compliments. If you really want her to like you and to help rack up those points, follow the first date rule of giving her compliments. Women love flattery, so if you mention to her at any point during the date that she is “pretty,” “beautiful,” “stunning,” “gorgeous,” she will definitely like you more than when the date first started.
- Don’t go dutch. You can call it whatever you want, but the truth is you really should pay on the first date. It’s an absolutely important first date rule and she is going to be expecting you to foot the bill once it arrives at the table. It doesn’t matter if she offers to go dutch, because in reality she lied; she really doesn’t want to split the bill. Insist on paying and take care of the bill without discussion.
- End the date with a goodnight. How you end the date is really important, so remember the first date rule of always ending the date by saying goodnight. Even if it was a good date, not ending it properly can leave her debating whether or not to go out with you again. Don’t just drop her off and speed away. Don’t run off after the movie. Give her a proper goodnight by hugging her, shaking her hand, or even a kiss; it will be up to you. Just make sure you do it correctly to close the date nicely and chances are she will give you that second date.
