Online dating the first meeting
To help you make that date a success (so you’re likely to get a second one), here are some tips to follow for having a great first online date.
Keep it simple If you’re planning a first date with a girl you met online there’s no need for a major time or financial commitment.
After all neither of you want to get locked into an hour-and-a-half long dinner (which may cost you around 0) when it’s clear after just 5 minutes that there’s no chemistry.
So pick a date that’s cheap, easy, and won’t take more than 60-90 minutes.
Meet up for coffee, take a hike together, go for a stroll around a cool part of town, etc.
This will give you a chance to see if any chemistry exists before committing to something more involved.
Plus, mixing in an activity means you’re more likely to have fun together and avoid awkward tension.
Show up smiling First online dates can cause a lot of anxiety for both men and women.
If you want to enjoy your time and help her do the same then you’ll want to ease that tension early.
So show up smiling, and walk with strong, confident body language as you roll up to meet her.
When you greet her start the conversation off with some light, content-free banter (compliments or playful teasing could work great here).
Keeping it fun and light early on will allow you both to feel more comfortable.
