First dates are always nerve-wracking. For guys, they always stress and worry on whether the gals will find the date as a great experience. They try their best in order to make it one. But sometimes, it does not always depend on the guys to make that first date a wonderful experience. The women also need to play their part. Here are some things that the women can do to ensure that the first date goes well, even if it is not that great.
Tell your date where you like to go.
Since your date may have a difficult time planning where to go, it can surely help if you provide some input to help develop the plan. Telling him your ideal place to go on a date can help a lot. It will surely help avoid going some place that he thinks is a good idea but is quite opposite on your part. He may like going to a sports bar when you prefer some place with some peace and quiet. Giving your input beforehand can help avoid many awkward first date situations.
Do not make a big deal if the meal is not to your liking.
Your first date may have brought you to a romantic place. But the food there does not seem to be to your liking. Your food came out cold. Your steak is too rare for your liking. The food looks unappealing to you. Refrain from airing your grievance over the food. Guys may stress over the fact that the date is not going along find just because of the food. Bear in mind that your date may have taken great lengths to plan that date. You are both there to know more about each other. Try not to ruin the whole date just because of the food. A good or bad first date can start and end from that.
Offer to pay when the bill comes.
Even though you consider that guys should be footing the bill, it does not harm offering to help pay for it on the first date. It helps that you care enough to share the costs although he already planned to take care of it himself. He will surely appreciate the gesture but will of course reject the idea most of the time. Your gesture of goodwill will mean something to him on that first date.
Do not forget to say thank you.
Guys appreciate women who can see through what they are doing and appreciate it. Even if the first date did not go as expected, try to at least learn how to say thank you. It can help justify all the first date planning and worries some men go through. It will not cost you a thing. But saying those two little words at the end of the first date can mean a lot.
