So you’re about to head out on a first date with a guy you’re really into. First impressions are important but the good news is, making a great impression isn’t all that complex. It can be easy to build it up in your head and overthink things. Stressing about exactly which shoes or dress to wear or how to do your hair is ultimately irrelevant. Since you’ve already confirmed a date together, he’s already decided you’re physically attractive.
From this point he’s far more interested in how the first date ‘feels’.What this really means is easy conversation, shared interests and a certain level of comfort. It can be a little intangible but think about it this way. The best dates are the ones where you don’t realize hours have passed by and a second date practically planned itself.
If you really want to give yourself an edge here, work on your conversation skills. Practice the idea of conversation threading and how to lead a conversation. If he’s nervous at first, having the ability to lead that conversation for a few minutes could be just what the date needs to mellow. Ultimately, wowing a guy on a first date is just about having a fun time. Simple, right?
