Are you headed out on your first date this weekend? Don’t stress! First dates can be a bit intimidating, but with the right preparation you will feel ready and worry free. A date should be fun, relaxing and special! Just like an interview, first dates are all about the first impressions. It’s important that you stay true to yourself instead of pressuring yourself to be someone you are not. You may have a lot of questions and many mixed emotions, but try to just take a deep breath! There is only one you in the world, so lets show your date the best version! Here are Faviana’s best tips for How to Prepare for a First Date!
Here’s the perfect chance to pamper yourself! You want to show your date that you value self care. There is nothing more attractive than someone who takes care of oneself. You are going to want to get your nails done, brush your teeth, moisturize, smooth your hair and clean up your eyebrows. Cleanliness is a huge sign of confidence, and will be the first thing that your date notices.
Dress to Impress
Next, you are going to need the perfect outfit. Feeling fancy? How about a cocktail dress from Faviana? Feeling casual? Go for your favorite sweater and jeans. How you appear externally should reflect you internally, and show your personality. Be sure to wear something that makes you feel comfortable and confident, not just what you think your date would like.
After you select the perfect outfit, you are going to have to prepare yourself mentally in order to shake off the nerves. Remember not to take out your phone too much because it may seem a bit disrespectful, and try to keep you attention on your date. Think about things that you like to do, as these could be great conversation starters. Don’t be afraid if you and your date do not share many things in common because opposites attract, right? Likewise, do not focus on the awkward moments that may occur, but rather on having a fun time. Just go with the flow and if think you made a mistake, just laugh it off!
Be Positive and Relax
You should make sure that you don’t dwell on the negative things about yourself, but rather highlight the positive! Everyone has insecurities, but it is crucial that you make an effort to out your best self forward. Positive energy usually leads to positive experiences! Make sure you also stay hydrated; it staves off bad breath, calms your nerves and helps you think clearly.
Be sure to also relax! If things do not work out, at least you put yourself out of your comfort zone. After all, you don’t always click with everyone. Take the experience in stride, and move on.
Don’t forget to have fun, try something new, and celebrate yourself!
