When you’re out on a date, you really only get a few minutes to make that all important first impression, so you’d better make sure it’s a good one. There’s little point in turning up in your favorite pair of jeans if they look a little shabby. You might feel your lucky hat is going to bring you success, but your date might not be so impressed. Take some pride in your appearance and find something suitable to wear.

Be Confident

Confidence can be a very attractive trait, but if you’re a little shy, you’re going to need to get in some practice. Movida Escorts have some very companionable ladies who will be able to help boost your confidence. In the beginning, you can pass yourself off as being confident if you talk about something you’re enthusiastic about. You might not be very sure about your appearance either, but it is possible to be comfortable in your own skin. Like you would rehearse a speech, you can turn to your trusty mirror for help in how to deliver lines.

Encourage a Two Way Conversation

You’re going to be doing a lot of talking during your date but don’t take over. Communication should be a two-way thing and listening to what your date has to say is just as important as sharing your life story. If your first date is successful, there are going to be lots of opportunities to swap stories in the future. Keep the conversation light-hearted to begin with. You can get into more in-depth topics when you know each other better.

One topic of conversation you’re better off steering away from is the subject of the ‘ex.’ They’re probably not going to be too interested, anyway. If the subject does come up, then move away quickly by saying that it’s all history and the here and now is far more important.

Turn Off Your Phone

Unless you’re expecting a really important call, switch your phone off. There’s nothing more off-putting than a phone that keeps ringing. You’re still going to be distracted by it if you leave it on silent or vibrate, so switch it off completely. You’ll be showing your date how important they are and that you want to engage with them fully.

Get a Second Opinion

Unfortunately, there aren’t any lessons you can take when it comes to dating, however, you can get a second opinion about how the date went. Have you got any friends you can talk to and discuss how it went? Let them know where you went, what you did and what you talked about. It always helps to get another person’s opinion.
