Make a Good First Impression on a Date

Make sure you know how to make a good first impression on a date as this counts for a lot when you meet someone new. Always be aware of this and put some thought into how you present yourself.  The person you are dating will decide within a few minutes how they feel about you so you can’t afford to get it wrong if you want your date to be a success. If he likes you on first sight he will subconsciously look for ways to see the best in you.  If he’s not sure initially, then the opposite will happen – he will only notice the negatives.

Here are some tips on how to make a good first impression on a date:

1. Your attitude, including your posture is the first thing that someone will notice about you. Your attitude will tell them if you are open or closed, charming or alarming. Humans are programmed to pick out healthy mates so the way you hold yourself gives a good indicator as to your general state of health, so make sure you are aware of this from the start.

Make sure you are welcoming, enthusiatic and upbeat rather than negative, stand-offish or overly cautious.

2. The way you dress is the second thing that someone will notice about you. Your clothing speaks volumes about you and can tell someone what sort of person you see yourself as – whether you are conventional or flamboyant, sexy or modest, trendy or traditional and also can reveal alot about your socio-economic status. Go through your wardrobe and make sure your clothes are going to make the right statement. Make sure you choose appropriately for each date.

3. Try and smile naturally and show that you are genuinely enjoying yourself.  This signals that you are happy and confident.

4. Make eye contact. By making eye contact, if only briefly, shows that you are open to trusting him.  Just a quick glance to notice his eye colour is enough to begin with.

5. Keep your body language positive. Point your heart towards theirs, this signals that you are not going to harm them.  Don’t cross you arms over your chest as this suggests that you are being closed and defensive.

These are just a few very important basics in how to make a good first impression on a date. Don’t forget how crucial those first few seconds of meeting are. If you miss that chance, you could have messed up a good opportunity for building a relationship with someone who may have turned out to be a perfect mate for you. It is always worth getting yourself prepared beforehand and being aware of how you could influence the way someone else may see you and make it work in your favour.

The best thing is to be yourself and enjoy your date, safe in the knowledge that you have prepared yourself in advance and are giving off the right image and making a good impression.
