3 Tips for a Good First Date


Let’s face it – a good first date is hard to come by. We’ve all been there. It could go great. A good dinner leads to a fun activity. That leads to all sorts of possibilities. On the other hand, a bad first date is always memorable, and not for the right reasons! How many times have you told the story about “bad date guy” to your girlfriends? Well ladies, we don’t want to be “bad date girl” when he tells his guys about the date either. Here are some tips to make your first date as good as possible.

Wear Good Perfume

This is important. The first thing a guy will notice after he sees you is how you smell. You don’t have to break the bank on a designer perfume either. You can get a designer-quality perfume like dior sauvage dupe without the price tag at dossier.co. They have dozens of clean, ethically sourced, long-lasting, high-end perfumes to choose from. But remember too much of a good thing is not a good thing! Don’t over-spray yourself with perfume. You should spray just enough that the scent is lightly noticeable. If the date is going well, he may just lean in a little more to breathe you in. Too much spray and you are going to make everyone around you run for cover!

Dress for the Occasion

Find out beforehand what you’ll be doing. Armed with this knowledge, pick an outfit that matches. You don’t want to go to a sports event in a dress, and you don’t want to go to a fancy concert in your weekend grunge. Feeling out of place because of what you wore is going to put a damper on the date. Dress for the occasion and that is one less thing you have to worry about.

Plan an Out

You smell great. You look great. But the date is still going horribly wrong. Maybe he was the one that put too much cologne on, or is way underdressed. Whatever the reason, you are ready to call it a night, and curl up on the couch with a bottle of wine and your favorite rom-com. But if you didn’t plan an out, it may be an awkward exit. Plan an exit strategy beforehand that you can run with if needed. Chances are, he has one too. Or be straight-forward and just end the evening. Either way, no reason to put yourself through any more agony!

Whether your first date went well or not, we hope these tips have made it a little less stressful!
