Who plans a date? Traditionally, men like you are the ones who plan the date. It may be a hard thing to do yet you need not over think of what can actually go wrong. There are just basic things you need to remember.
Have a Plan
Most of the things that end well start with a good plan. A woman may appreciate the efforts you did to set up a date. You don’t have to ask a woman what she wants rather take the initiative to plan things out. Think of something universal; something your girl will love and enjoy. When she is with you who is ready and had planned things out, she’ll feel relaxed and happy just like you in your first date.
Clean the Car
You don’t want to let her sit in a car with your stuffs scattered on the backseat and everywhere. They say, “First impressions last,” This is an initiative though for a car owner to do car cleaning one’s in a while cause you will never know who gets to ride in it.
A clean car may suggest a well-organized personality everyone may be attracted to. It is as important as keeping up with the personal hygiene practices. Use a gentle scented air freshener to set the mood for a worthwhile conversation before you arrive at the venue of the date. Remember, how Cinderella enjoyed her ride in the magical carriage on the way to the ball.
Have Cash on Hand
It’s sad but men are expected to pay the bills on a first date. Well you may think of it as a good investment for a long-term plan. If you want to please your woman, you have to give her a treat and let her enjoy the food and a dating place conducive for a romantic talk. Also, you might need the cash to pay rent for a parking area and for other incidentals.
You don’t have to “dress to impress”. Wearing the appropriate clothes and having the decent look is enough. Your girl won’t like it when you go for a formal dining wearing your basketball shorts. However, you can wear your athletic outfits when go for a jog in the park which is still a date! Learn the basics in dressing up such as knowing what belt matches your shoes or what top fits you best with your black slacks.
Give Her a Call
You don’t want her to wear her cocktail dress in the park nor do you want her to wear her jogging outfit in a lovers’ ball. Give her a hint of where you are going to bring her. This will help her prepare for the date and the same time allay her anxiety which is natural on a first date.
Be on Time
What irritate many women are men who are always late for a date. When you said the movie starts at 7 pm, you must come an hour before it because you need to pick her up and the travelling time may take a while. You just have to make sure that you arrive at a dating place before she does. A gentleman does this favour for her lady.
