What To Expect on Your First Date

You’ve found the woman you want to take it to the next step with. You’ve taken the steps to build a good relationship and really believe you’ve found the one! Now it’s time for things to get serious and go on your first date, but knowing what to expect is scary!

This step will take a lot of time and effort on your part but will be worth it to bring the online connection you share to reality. First dates are both exuberantly exciting, yet nerve-wracking. Knowing what to expect on your first date can help to ease nerves and allow for preparation.

Talk About Expectations

Being on the same page as the woman you are meeting for your date is of most importance. Have a conversation to understand each other’s expectations for the date to reduce the risk of disappointment. Talk about what she is comfortable with doing or not doing, where she would like to spend time, how much time she would like to spend, etc. Using communication as an effective skill will allow you to enjoy the time spent together much more.

Important topics to discuss when planning your date:

  • Staying arrangements
  • First date activities
  • Personal space
  • Preference for intimacy
