Create A Checklist For Your First Date
So you landed the date that you wanted with the person that captured your interest. How should you plan it to make sure things go well? Make sure you set up a simple checklist.
Here's what you can include:
#1. Choice of Clothes and Accessories. Show your unique style, but be careful not to choose something that's too loud or flashy. It can be distracting- and may not get the positive attention that you expected. Get advice from a friend (one who has good fashion sense), stylist, clothes store worker, or any professional that you feel can help you look your best.
#2. Where to go. Make sure that you know what the person you're talking to is interested in doing...and be sure that he/she knows the things that you like to do. With that type of information you both can set up a nice date without doing something you (or your date) wouldn't really enjoy. So save the spontaneity for future dates.
#3. When you'll show up. Always arrive at least 10 minutes earlier than the time of your date. This shows that you're interested, you're considerate, and also you can determine how long it takes the person you're dating to arrive.
If there's anything else you would like to add on your checklist, be sure to include it. You only get one first date with an individual. Do whatever you can on your part to make sure everything runs smoothly.
