How to Make your First Date Memorable

  • Plan in advance (know the bar or restaurant where you will go and the drinks offered there)
  • Wear a comfortable and flattering outfit
  • Have a positive attitude (talk about things that make your potential partner see you as a person with achievements rather than a loser)
  • Make the conversation a two-way thing (Ask your first date questions and encourage them to give out more details about themselves)
  • Stay true to yourself. Pretending to be someone else on a first date can be impactful to the relationship when your partner discovers your true colors.
