A good date experience is when we both leave the date feeling uplifted and excited. It always helps set a good tone for the date when I can tell that the other person has put some time/thought into the outing. If it’s not a blind date and you have a bit of an idea about your partners interests (from social media or mutual friends), you can really impress them by playing into that! It doesn’t have to meet any certain stipulations or criteria per say, as long as we both leave with smiles on our faces wanting to reconnect again.
First Date Faves
Going out for a meal is always a traditional nice way to get to know someone through conversation. But a good meal paired with a shared experience like going to an event, a class, or a museum, concert, hike, anything really — gives you something to talk about over dinner and an introductory way to explore likes, dislikes and each other’s interests.
One of my favorite dates in San Francisco started as a walk through Golden Gate Park to a free event, Opera in the Park. We sat around on a picnic blanket and enjoyed the music for a bit (I think this gave us both time to get comfortable around each other and let the first date jitters subside), then walked over into a nice neighborhood nearby for a drink, then eventually to dinner and dessert.
It ended up being a long date that was only expected to be the meet and greet and walk around the park but ended up being an all day affair because we were enjoying each others’ company.
Preparing For The First Date
Well I personally have a pre-date ritual to prepare for a date that involves a long shower and bath with a glass of wine, followed by body oil, face mask, and general grooming and primping. I follow this up with a meditation session so I feel relaxed and centered before meeting. On the date itself, I try to be myself for the most part, perhaps a little reserved in some areas until I get a good feel for the other person and our compatibility, but generally try to be as normal and like me as possible. How else will you know you’re a good fit if you aren’t being yourself?
Expectations Of My Date
I am generally not a high maintenance girl so all I expect from a date is courtesy, kindness, and respect. Also, I do think it’s appropriate for the man to at least ASK to pay the bill at the end of the night.
Tips To Remove The Nerves
Don’t be nervous! But of course that is easier said than done so I would say just take a few deep breaths, don’t be afraid to be yourself or talk about things that truly interest you (you’re probably more interesting than you let yourself believe) and in the event nerves are taking over anyway – don’t drink too much! I’ve seen this happen more than once and trust me, you’d rather be a bit nervous in the beginning and let that round out as the date goes on, than add fuel to the fire and end up being a hot mess!
