Courting a lady isn’t as straight forward as it used to be. Back in the day, dating etiquette was well-established and everybody played by the same rules such as men would open doors for women, help them with their coats, and have them home by nine,… What follows are 10 first date tips for the modern gentleman.
Don’t take her out to dinner on the first date
These days, the most popular first date is the weeknight “getting-a-couple-drinks” date. And, for good reason. It’s non-committal, relatively brief by necessity, and the drinks help to calm everybody’s nerves. So, don’t try to impress with a 4-star restaurant when you barely know the person. This way, you’ll keep your wallet intact and she won’t feel beholden. Plus, if the sparks don’t fly, it’s easy to retire the evening early.
Hug her at the beginning of the date
Breaking down the physical barrier at the beginning of the date makes the rest of the date so much easier. At the beginning of the date, give her a hug, and tell her how delightful she looks. Also, by showing your attraction to her early on, you free her to reciprocate gestures of attraction throughout the date, making it easier for you to judge how well the date is going.
Look your best
A lot of the times when guys try to dress up for a date, they end up wearing something they aren’t truly comfortable in. You should dress up a little, sure, but, try to wear something that makes you feel like a million bucks. If you don’t have any clothes that make you feel like George Clooney in Ocean’s 11, go out and find some.
