Going on a first date is always exciting and nerve wrecking for a woman.
Does this sound familiar?
You spend hours looking for the perfect first date outfit, do your hair, and take extra time to make sure your makeup is impeccable. You meet him, and you give him a firm handshake, pull out your own chair (after all, you are an independent woman) and sit down. The two of you engage in small talk, and he asks you about your day. Things have been a bit tough at work, you reply, ever since you got a new manager. The two of you order your drinks, and the date is going well. After about 3 hours of conversation, there is a pregnant pause of silence. Awkward. As the night wraps up, you don’t know if you should give him a hug or if he is going to kiss you. Awkward moment number 2…
So how do you ensure that a date will go smoothly? It may be easier than you think.
Check out this video by a colleague of mine, Matthew Hussey, and his advice to women on how to have a successful first date.
Here is a quick summary of the rules:
1 – Don’t spend too long getting ready.
