Your First Date

Lover's Embrace


Your First Date

Okay, so you have her number and although you want to text her five minutes after getting the number. Actually, now is the perfect time. Send her or him a quick text and verify that you have the right number.

That may sound corny but imagine if they got a little excited and gave you the wrong number. You will not see them again and that would reek. So, send a quick text and be sure to save their number to your contacts. If you do not get a reply right away, go find them and ask them if they got your text letting them know you want to make sure you gave them the right number.

Therefore, the number is correct and you are sitting at the house thinking about them and hoping you will hear back from them and you really want to send a text but you are also trying to avoid seeming too eager. Throw that thought out the window and hear it hit the ground outside! Send a text and tell them, “I was just thinking about you and wanted to say hello.”

Texting is a great way to get to know each other before the first date and a great way to get a little more insight into one another before you are actually on a date simply to find out that the date was not what you had hoped it to be. This is also the best way to plan your first date.

So, where is the best place to take a girl on the first date? That is a fairly- easy answer. However, let us eliminate the places to avoid. Avoid taking your date to a movie the first time out.

You should not talk during the movie and the first date is really about getting to know each other. The number two place to avoid is anywhere that is secluded…fact is, this is probably the worst first date even over taking in a movie.

By far, the best place to take a young woman is a quiet restaurant. Avoid asking her out on a weekend. Instead, ask her if she would like to have dinner with you earlier on in the week. The wait staff will be able to cater to your dining needs better simply due to the lack of crowd. After all, you want a nice quiet place while sticking to having people around.

Remember, be a gentleman and show her respect. Should anything happen on this first date, let it be because she wants to kiss, or otherwise. Do not push the issue. In addition, if she says to stop…stop!

Show you have some resemblance of self-control. Although, honestly she should never, need to say stop, in the first place. Pay attention to her and not, what you want. You will know what she wants and does not want, simply by the way she reacts to you.

      What a great Hub. My first date was in the City of York, in England. Unfortunately the relationship didn't last, but the memories always will.
