First attraction. First flowers. First date. Quivering hearts, shaking hands, sweating palms. These are the usual scene for beginners out on their first date.
The very first date is usually the purest. Two young people going out, even too shy to hold each other’s hands. Too reserved to even give a goodnight kiss on the check. Too prude to even lean on each other. That’s the beauty of first dates.
Why Go Out?
Guys would save up their allowances just to treat the girls to a movie and pizza afterwards. And they go to the local hang out.
The need to be seen with each other and be considered an “item” is prevalent to the first-time daters. This is where relationships start to blossom as they spend more time with each other.
Friend Or Foe?
Some teens would bring a friend on their very first date. They were too afraid to go out on their own. This only reflects insecurity, and might raise some questions with your date.
In other instances, it is your friend and your date ending up having a good time, with you either too polite to join their hearty laughter, or too pissed to even talk.
It’s just your first date. You’re not doing a confession. Don’t blurt out your deepest, darkest, secrets. Don’t start telling your date the reason why you hate your seatmate, or the time that you stole $20 from your mom. Try to stay on the general topic like types of music you listen to, your favorite TV show, etc. Stay on the lighter side of the conversation. Make your date a fun-
Don’t brag or talk fast. A minute or two of silence will help if nothing else. If you got nothing to say, take a sip of your soda, or a bite of your pizza. It’s always a good excuse for not talking.
Sarcasm is out of the question. Same goes with discrimination. Avoid rude remarks about someone or some group, but being overly sweet is not good makes you look like you’re someone not to be trusted.
Come on, it’s just a date. You can’t demand for his full attention the day after you dated. You can’t be jealous and throw tantrums around. He is entitled to his own individuality, as well as you are entitled to yours. Unless you talked about deeper commitments, then there’s nothing you can do about it.
“I LOVE YOU”
“I love you” lost its meaning when people took the word for granted. But in dating, never ever say I love you unless you mean it. Some blurt it out because they think it was the right thing to say at that specific moment. Little do they know that the moment they say it, it kills every chance to further the relationship.
Dating is a good way to know a person. In fact, it is the way wherein you can gauge a person’s character. It is also where everything starts. The tips above instruct the beginners in how to behave and what to avoid on their first dates.
Have a date with that guy. But make sure that you have read the dating tips for beginners written above. It will help you a lot.
