Few tips that might come in handy when dating

Be yourself

As clichéd as it might sound, it really is the best advice anyone can give.

In such a scenario, honesty and naturalness m is highly valued.   When you are your true self, it helps the other person to become more comfortable towards you, hopefully leading to better things. And obviously, if you’re as you are, it means lesser shocks and surprises and hiccups are likely to pop up.

It also helps you determine whether your likes and dislikes match up or not.

Expect awkwardness

But, it is reality that both parties do often get jittery on the first date, or initial couple of dates. One must be prepared for such things. It helps to ease the other person, if their partner doesn’t freeze up, not knowing what to do, or just become plain rude, as some do. Have a conversation starter ready.  All your usual ones, movies hobbies, work etc. work wonders.

No games please

People have a habit of portraying themselves to be something else, in order to grab more attention or even impress their date. But that’s not the way to go. One must be honest and say who they are. Going into a relationship with both their eyes open give power to the partner to deal with issues that may come up, but them not knowing the truth about their partner, is a sure shot breakdown.

Just have fun

When on a date, keep it fun and easy. Try and relax the environment.

It is only when you’re in this state that you get to know the other person in the best way. To get the best first date experience be sure to check these tips by Vanesa Van Edwards.
