A First Date Guide for Men


There is no denying that first dates can be scary. For men, as well as women, first dates, represent a new chance to get to know someone and there may even be a chance that the date can turn into a meaningful relationship. Even though there should be excitement looking forward to a first date there is also some trepidation by the man as well as the woman. This is normal but to have a good date you have to get past that trepidation.

Be Creative on the First Date but stay within Boundaries

A first date is much like an interview. But even though you are just getting to know the person it should not be uncomfortable like an interview. Many women have seen it all when it comes to the dating scene and first dates. This will obviously depend on the age of the woman. They may be a little bored with the whole dinner and movie date or meeting at a coffee shop. If you want to begin the date with good first impression, you know what they say about first impressions, you should try to be creative and stand out from her other first dates. Even if the girl is not a baseball fan a baseball game can be a good first date idea. Baseball is America's pastime and it is difficult not having a good time at a game, unless you are a rabid fan and your team gets beat. A baseball game is a relaxing way to spend a few hours getting to know someone and there is something else, the game, to keep you from uncomfortable situations that can come when two people are getting to know each other. This is just one example of a creative first date.

You have to be yourself, but How?

It is easier said than done when trying to be yourself, especially on a first date. There will be nervous tension because you do not know the person and you want them to like you. You can try to look at the date as being a get together with a person you have known for a long time. If it is the case where you are not nervous and you can be yourself the other person will be more comfortable as well. All in all if the relationship will go past the first date there must be a connection between two people that are themselves and not two people that are trying to be something they are not.

What you can talk about on Your Date

There are tons of things that you talk about on your first date. The easiest way to make people comfortable is to ask them questions about them and listen when they talk. Don't start the date off only talking about yourself but let the girl talk about herself. Find out her likes and dislikes and what type of person she is. This will not only make them feel more comfortable but it will allow you to get a glimpse of whom they really are. Do not be too common about what you ask, such as where are you from or where did you go to school, but ask her about things that she will not give just one word answers for, as it will help facilitate the conversation. You should not get too deep or talk about serious matters on a first date, keep it light and try to connect with her.

Even though you will be nervous do not be scared stiff on your first date. Basically you have nothing to lose because you both do not know each other. Have some fun and try to get to know her and see where things go, as it may turn out she can be someone you want to see more often, and if not there are many other women out there that you will find interesting.
