First Time Dating Preparation Tips
It’s amazing how often this step is overlooked. While appearance isn’t everything, cleaning yourself up before going out goes a long way. The saying goes – “You can’t change the genes in you, but you can change the jeans your in.” and it’s absolutely true. Wearing a nice clean shirt, some neat pressed pants, and an up-to-date pair of underwear makes the impression that you are able to take care of yourself and also reflects good hygiene.

While you can have a mutual respect for your date (even without knowing them intimately) you are taking time from your busy schedule to give her a chance. By always being available, never hanging up the phone first, or constantly calling your date– you’re almost guaranteeing you won’t have a second date.

Recharge your batteries:
Dating can be tiring, especially when managing multiple dates with different women. If you feel like taking a night off – a weekend off – a week off go ahead and do it. Your dates will understand that you’re busy or have personal matters to attend to and they will be there when you’re ready to share your time with them. If they request that you have a drink with them on Friday night, just let them know that you’d like to but can’t make it this Friday – it’s that simple....
