When you invest time, energy, and money into preparing for your first date, you want to make the best impression. Non-verbal and vocal communication say more about you than you might imagine and can either make or break your chances of getting a second date. Remember first impressions are long lasting.
Following are four simple points to consider when you are going on that first date. Think of it as going on an important job interview.
If you are going to pick up a date or meet that person at a specific location, be on time. Punctuality is a sign of respect. There is never any excuse for being fashionably late. Of course, there are exceptions such as an unexpected occurrence that is out of your control.
Your apparel should look presentable. If you are taking your date to a fancy restaurant for dinner, you do not want to show up in a tee shirt with the message, “Eat Me,” and wearing worn to shreds jeans.
Your posture is very important. Approach your date as though you are interested in that individual.
Make direct eye contact when talking to your date. Keep in mind that the eyes are the windows to the world.
Very basic tips which unfortunately, a lot of people get wrong (arriving 3 hours late!). But you still want the event to be light enough so the person doesn't feel like its a job interview. But right, first impressions are a lasting impression!
