Do not be too hard on yourself and relax.
When you realize that your date already has a bad first impression about you, do not worry about it. Try to relax and bear in mind that people make mistakes at one time or another. Do not try to beat yourself over your mistakes. Instead, try to find out where you did something wrong. If you were going too fast for comfort with your date, you can still try to slow down to give him or her some breathing space.
Do not be pretentious.
A date may develop a bad first impression about you because it is obvious that you are pretending. You pretend to be someone that you are not. You date can see it a mile away or will eventually find out sooner or later. The best thing to do is to avoid creating a persona that is something that you are not just to please your date. Try to be yourself the first time you meet to avoid the complications.
Practice makes perfect.
If it is the first time you went on a date and made a bad first impression immediately, do not fret. Many people have gone through the same experience. You can recover by learning what you have done wrong and make sure that you do not do it again on your next date. Experience is the best teacher. You will become a better date next time.
