First date guidelines

First Date Tip #1
Lunch, coffee or a drink is a good start.
It’s important to be able to converse on your first date.

First Date Tip #2
Clothing and Personal Hygiene.
Wear clothes that make you feel good.
Be sure they fit whatever way makes you feel the most comfortable and still look presentable.
Make sure you are clean and smell good.
Remember, first impressions are very important.

First Date Tip #3
Help the other person feel comfortable.
Find something nice about your date and compliment her or him.
If it’s painfully difficult to come up with something that you sincerely like about the person, this may not be the person for you.

Ask good open-ended questions.
Think up some fun things to talk about that will reveal an interesting part of your life or personality.
