Planning to ask this gorgeous lady on a date? Well, you must prepare for it. Donít go out in a battle unprepared. Who knows she will turn out to be your lucky girl, right? So, here are some of the tips (from ladies) that you must consider on your first date:


  • Plan for a good date. Choose a nice place to go. Going out on a date is one step to know the person well, so what a better way to do it than to sit down in a quite place and start a good conversation. A coffee shop or a quiet restaurant is just few of the recommendable dating places to go on the first date. Reserve the movie dates or concert dates for your next dates. 
  • Fetch your date in her house or at the workplace. Well, I know this is old-school and I doubt if this is still applicable these days, most especially to new the generations. But fetching the girl in her house or in her workplace is not only showing her respect, it also shows your sincerity and your good intention in taking her out in front of other people. 
  • Dress up properly and appropriately. Keep an eye on good grooming. Choose clothes that are simple and casual and comfortable. Donít make your self look stiff or too formal for your date. Over-dressing is a turn-off for a girl, so keep your clothes simple but will still look pleasant to you and the girlís eyes. Take a bath, keep your nails clean, your face must be well-shaven, fix your hair and make sure you have that close-up shiny white teeth smile.
  • Bring her something nice.  A bouquet of flowers would definitely melt your dateís heart. So before you step into her house, have a quick drop by the nearest flower shop and buy her a nice bouquet of flowers. Nothing beats a bouquet of red long-stemmed roses.  
  • Confirm your date prior to the scheduled time. Giving her a call prior to the scheduled time of meeting would give her the impression that you are really interested in taking her out. That, you havenít forgotten your date. That, she is really someone special and you are excited to go out with her. Once she feels it, you are in a good start.

  • Be the ice breaker. Make the first move to open a conversation. Waiting for the woman to open the conversation would make you both feel uncomfortable. So break the ice and ask questions about her self, her day, her hobbies, likes and dislikes. Avoid asking too personal questions Ė itís inappropriate. Topics related to politics, religion or social problems should be set aside until she shows some interest about these topics. And if these topics both interest you, make the conversation light and fun at the same time. Make the conversation a two way process.  Donít monopolize the conversation. 
  • Compliment her. Sincerity is a key word in complimenting her. Say something nice and mean it. No need to use flowery words. Do it not to make a good impression instead do it because she truly deserves praises for looking good on your first date.
  • Be courteous and a true gentleman. Women would always feel good when the man opens the door for her. Offers the seat first and lets her sit first. Ask her first of what kind of food she wants to eat. Stands up when she needs to go to the rest room. Again, these are old-school styles but these will keep the ladies off their feet.

  • Make her laugh. If the way to a manís heart is through his stomach, I would say the way to win the womanís heart is to make her laugh. Laughing is the best way to keep the tension away while having the conversation. Dull moments will be avoided if you keep the conversation going while you both are laughing. Avoid giving green jokes. Make her laugh but make your self look foolish.

  • Bring her home safe and sound. Offer to drive her back home, but if she insists that she would just take a cab, respect that. Once you arrived at her home, wait till she gets inside the house before you leave. Donít just walk away. Should you give her a good night kiss? Wait if she gives you a sign, if not, donít give her a frowning face.
  • Thank her for going out with you. Whether the date turned out well or horrible, thank her for spending the night with you. A true gentleman still finds a way to let his date feel that he had a nice time meeting her even though the date didnít turn out well. A smile, a hug or a shake hand is a good way to end your first date.
