First dates may be exciting as well as stressful enough for many people. But there are also other things that happen in succeeding dates that can be just as stressful. There are several dating firsts that people may expect at one time or another during their date. Here are just some of them and some tips of how to deal with each one effectively.
The First Kiss
Although people may not expect it on a first date, the first kiss is just as eagerly expected between two people meeting up on succeeding dates. But those who are both stressed and worried when that first kiss comes should stay relaxed. They should be aware that the high expectations they may have on a first kiss may just be the cause of their disappointment.
People should just consider the experience as it comes and not expect it to deliver fireworks all of a sudden. Remember that the first kiss is not always the best kiss. One reason is that two people do not know each other well enough to figure what each one likes. The best kisses always come later on in the relationship.
The First Talk of Exclusivity
After several dates, thoughts about dating exclusively may begin to come out. But you might feel some doubt whether you need to proceed with talking about the subject. It can be stressful if you think about it often. Do not let it bother you that much. Instead, try to look for clues if your date is comfortable enough spending time with you and frequently communicates with you through different ways. When you feel that you are getting comfortable with each other, it may be safe to tackle talking about exclusivity.
The First Fight
At some point of the relationship, arguments and conflicts may likely arise. Do not try to expect it to happen day in and day out. It will run its course when it does happen. But do not worry yourself to death how it may affect the relationship in case that first fight happens. Instead, try to prepare yourself how to respond in case your first fight arises. How you respond to that first fight will have an effect on your relationship. Remember to keep your fight within the confines of the issues and not venture to name calling or hurling insults.
