Don’t turn your first date into a movie night, it is meant for the two of you to know each other. Dinner is the best way to go about it. The place of choice should be such that you can easily afford it, and it has a nice ambience too. In case you are tight on cash then you can always arrange dinner at your place and cook, but if you are not very good at cooking you can always order something a good restaurant. The important thing is to make an effort; so if you cannot cook at least serve the food that you ordered on the table in a fancy way.

At most, you can kiss her good night at the end of it but the golden rule in the entire date is not to expect anything in return for your efforts.


Confidence is what makes the most lasting impression but be sure that you do not go overboard with it. Be sure of the things you talk about and what you suggest. If you have the confidence that you will have a good date then it will show through, and you’ll make it happen.


Dressing according to the place you are taking her is necessary and also let her know about it so that she can do the same. Wearing clean, decent clothes, polished shoes, a clean shaven face, all this cannot harm you, right? Also wear a little cologne but never wear too much.


Make sure you compliment her but don’t go on and on about it as it will make you look a bit desperate. Make her the centers of attention i.e. do not keep talking about yourself all the time, also make sure that you pay attention to what she is saying. Talking too much about work is not very good for the conversation.  Also, never mention about your ex-girlfriends on your first date.

The time has to be very properly managed, you should finish the date at a point where you both want it continue a little bit longer, it maintains the excitement quotient.

A simple understated gift can is a good idea, don’t go overboard with it, roses can always do the trick.

Once you get back home make sure to call her and tell her how much you enjoyed your date, keep in mind being honest is very crucial here.
