Have your say
When you go out on a date especially if it is first date, groom
yourself properly before you go out. Wear comfortable, clean,
and good clothes. Clean your toenails and fingernails, iron
your clothes, wear nice watch, and clean everything that your
first date can notice. Remember, you are building the
foundation of the outcome of you date. The impression starts
here. This basic first date etiquette on cleanliness is a must.
Flirt with your date. Teasing her and making her laugh is also a
parts of first date etiquette. Also, laugh at your date's jokes.
Humour can make your date feel comfortable with you. It is also
nice to give her a hug as soon as you met her. A little
physical touch can be a good etiquette on your first date.
First date etiquette also suggest that you should have a
stimulating conversation with your date. There is no better
first date than learning how to talk. Do act like a gentleman
to your date, open doors for her. And if you are the lady, act
as one. Complement your date once in a while is a flattering
first date etiquette. Tell where you will go and finally relax
and have fun.
Keeping these proper first date etiquettes in mind assure you
of a higher chance of getting a second date but that's not all.
You should know what you should not do on a date. Here are some:
Avoid talking about religion and politics. Your date might have
other views on these matters. It is not a good first date
etiquette to look around while your date is talking. It might
appear that you are not interested. Focus your attention to
your date. Never ever talk about yourself too much. Never talk
about your past relationships to your date. It is not a proper
first date etiquette. Another secret is sharing stories and
listening intently. Don't make any offensive jokes. Don't be
rude. Also, it is not good first date etiquette to pretend to
be someone. Be punctual on your first date. Don't argue with
her. Keep it easy. Staying cool and calm is really a good first
With this first date etiquette on your mind, you should be
ready to take
your date out for the first time. But there are
other things you can consider to keep your date yours. One
secret is to keep her wanting for more. Date should be short
and meaningful. A romantic dinner should do because in that
setting, you can truly impress your date with your proper first
date etiquettes. Keep her hanging. Make her clueless of your
next step. Give snap judgment that you have feelings toward
your date. But keep your first date etiquette. Bring your date
to her house. But don't tell that you like her or you love her.
A simple phrase like "I had a great time" will do or "I was a
pleasure to meet you" can be an alternative. Remember, don't
mention directly to your date's face the phrase "So, when can
we go out again. Instead, "can I call you again?" is more
appropriate first date etiquette. First dates should not always
lead to bed.
One thing more: "BE SAFE."

dunno where to take GF on second date, last time we went Dance.
that's really encouraging saying that god himself couldn't help you
if you don't know these
I always use a nice chat up line about halfway through something
really witty and clever like: You must be amazingly fit, because
you've been running through my head all night. And whenever I'm on a
date i like to talk about things such as movies making hints for
me: what movies do you like?
girl: errr...things like romance and drama
me: well what movies that are on now do you like?
girl: oooh i don't know probably.....if I'm honest
me: well how about i take you to see it then
its a good way of getting another date but obviously say it in your
Ok. general. But nice to read. basics. I would
like to know what to talk ( with examples would be good)
Oh Christ if someone told me they loved me in less than 3 or 4
months I'd run a mile, thinking that now I'll never believe it from
them, even if it is true later on. Although its good to make a
brilliant first impression its also better to just be yourself,
definitely better, if your not the type of guy to have a flashy
watch, good, don't get one for a date that'd appreciate it...find a
girl who isn't as materialistic instead. There's a world full of
people, don't settle for less, seriously. The hottest thing a guy
can do is be himself and make girls laugh. There's nothing worse
than someone who's afraid to be themselves, you'll only find out
later that they are not what they cracked up to be and people stand
to get hurt.
I think this is really sad, your basing this
around the views of one specific women- all women are different, it
takes the rite sort of broom to swoop a women off her feet - Damion
i think, you shouldn't tell your date you love
her, unless you have known her for quite abit! its really useful if
you express your fantasy's so tht your date has an idea, on how you
want to live your life!
Maybe you have the wrong circle of 'friends', some
people can be so cruel they are just not worth keeping company with

DON'T BE 2 BIG HEADED, KODGE 18
Not very helpful at all, definitely not good for
i think saying "i love you" on a first date is a bit extreme, i
thought it would make a girl think your just making that up (which
you probably would be) to get in bed with her - Joe, 16
i have to disagree with the last paragraph, some girls like to be
told that their date is in love with them, it allows a few more
mistakes later on - megan, 18
a good page with good basis info, however I agree
with the first comment, if you don't know this then god help you!
I'm 16 and if anyone doesn't know these tip's off
by heart then god himself couldn't help you
Not a bad article as such, wish there more pages
like this, go out plenty with my female friends but always have
trouble on dates.
