Some tips for your first date

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
