Don’t worry, it’s normal to have some first date nerves.
Follow our top tips for an enjoyable evening and fingers crossed…a second date!
Be positive about yourself – a bright, cheerful attitude to life is much more appealing than a negative one.
Be yourself – don’t pretend to be something you’re not!
Treat others as you would like to be treated yourself. Be polite if you decide you don’t want to meet up again. It’s much nicer to say ‘I’ve had a really nice evening but feel that we’re not suited for a long term relationship’ than to promise you’ll ring and have no intention of doing so.
Always take reasonable precautions to ensure your personal safety.
Talk endlessly about your past relationships – it can be off-putting!
Drink too much or constantly run yourself down.
Feel pressurised into starting a physical relationship before you feel the time is right
