There are a billion things that can occupy your time, so a first date needs to be memorable to set you apart from the rest and pave the path for a second and third date. Pulling off a memorable date is a bit tricky, and the same dinner and movie routine is getting old. So, here are a few suggestions that can help you plan one that will stick with a girl long after its over. Hence, In the end, if the relationship doesn’t work out, you can be sure that she will never forget the dates that you took her on.
First Date is always the “conversation date”
It is not possible to know someone completely, and there is always some aspect that you don’t know about. Yes, the first dates are supposed to be memorable and fun, but at the same time, it has to contain meaningful conversations. This straight away removes activities like movies, as you can’t have a conversation while watching a movie. So plan something keeping that in mind. The best way to start a conversation is by presenting her with her favourite flower bouquet when you greet her.
Think about what interests her
This will be like a surprise on the first date as not many men ask the girl about their interests or even bother to find out for the first date. It shows that you have taken the time to get to know her a little, her interests and dislikes, just remember to keep this up on the subsequent dates as well, or it can be seen as something you did to impress on the first date.
It is the first date, so it is not necessary that you know a whole lot about her. Well, no worries just check her blog or facebook to get an idea as to what she likes. Just keep in mind there is a fine line between finding her likes and seeming like a stalker. If she asks just be honest and leave it at that.
Do something unique
This is a great way to impress her and at the same time have an excellent opportunity for sparking a conversation. Doing something unique and novel on the first date will generate excitement between you two that will strengthen your bond.
Most men have the idea of a passionate date ingrained in their heads, but the truth is that an active date is much more memorable and more often quite fun. So, get out and actually do something. There are many great activities that you can try, like if she enjoys having shisha, then you can take her to a shisha lounge in London for your first date. Shisha is a great activity to do on the first date and is a good conversation starter also.
Cook for her
It is a widely known saying that ‘the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach’, well this is also true for women. Gone are the days when men didn’t use to cook, these days cooking is manly. So, instead of taking her to a fancy restaurant, invite her to your humble abode and prepare something that she will never forget. Or the next time that she invites you over to her place show up with a bunch of cooking supplies and take over her kitchen. A man’s culinary prowess is very impressive to any girl.
Show up as yourself
This may very well be the best piece of advice that anyone can give. Show up on the first date as you are, not as what she might expect you to be. Presenting an alter ego is the worst things you can do on a first date, this is your first impression so be yourself. Most men in fear of getting rejected, behave in a certain way in front of their date and when she gets to know then, she finds out that they are a completely different person.
Above everything else be willing to be spontaneous. Rules are meant to be broken, throw whatever plans you have made out the window and just go where your guts take you. There is nothing more exciting and fun then organic love. If during the date you feel like your plans are not working as you thought and an idea comes to mind that might make things more enjoyable, well go for it. Taking chances is what helps you to do better, by doing something reckless you can let yourself go and truly enjoy yourself.
