Wednesday, 22 Dec 2010 02:04 PM

That someone has caught your eye and you have decided to go out on a date. You are excited and wondering if the date could develop into something more. Remember, a slip and a miss here and there on a date, especially a first date, can ruin it. So, make sure you are well aware of the do's and don’ts on what to do for a date:
When and where – A first date should be a fun date. It is always great to Having something planned to do, special or not, makes the other person feel cared for. Your idea for a fun date will reveal a lot about the kind of person you are. Select the date idea/theme with a little thought and keep in mind what would appeal to your date.
Talk – Conversation is a great ice-breaker and plays a key role in establishing a connection during the first few dates. Body language is also very important as both partners are trying hard to gauge each other’s reactions and read their thoughts. Communication opens a sea of possibilities to take the relationship a few steps further. It is always sensible to be yourself and keep the conversation fun. Sharing each others likes and dislikes is an excellent way to begin. Once you find similarities, you could go deeper into your beliefs. Avoid mentioning past relationships or emotional incidents. You wouldn’t want to mess up your first date, would you? This may not be the right time to talk about too many personal details. Avoid talking about things that could spoil the mood. Try not to scare your companion and take things easy.
Dressing – Spend some time choosing what you're going to wear when going on a date. Your clothes reflect your choices and tell your companion what kind of person you are- fun, serious, boring, or daring. Do not go overboard with the way that you dress. Never project yourself as someone you are not, it will not impress your date.
Money – It is never a good idea to make money an issue on a date. Secondly, flaunting money or a lack of money strikes a discordant note. Conversation stalls and the occasion ceases to be fun anymore.
