Girls if you wanna have an awesome first date with a guy, there are three do's and two don'ts that you should remember. Number one, do pick an outfit that you feel comfortable and confident in. This might not be the trendiest thing you own, the highest heels or the most make-up. Quite honestly guys don't understand fashion so there is a good chance that your five inch wedges are going to be completely lost on him. Besides that might make you taller and guys kinda like it when a girl is shorter than they are. Plus it's not sexy is you can't walk in something or if you're so uncomfortable you can't stop fidgeting with your outfit. A guy is going to notice that and he's not going to have a good time. Do have an opinion, don't agree to go out for sushi if you hate sushi. It's ok to say hey how about we go have Italian instead. Don't say you want to go to a party with him and drink if you are a straight edge. It's ok to have an opinion, a guy will respect you for it and if he doesn't he's a douchebag and you shouldn't be going out with him any way. Also do have fun, this is supposed to be fun. Dating is supposed to be a good time where people bond and do things together. Not like a horrible, stressful, wrenching awful situation , where you are in five inch heels that you can't walk in. So remember not to take things too seriously. Do not ever talk about sex. Believe me if you guys are meant to get there you will get there. You don't need to bring it up. Don't be afraid of silence, the best first date I ever had was when i went into it thinking you know what? If there is awkward pauses that's fine. I'm not gonna tap-dance like a crazy person and try to fill the silence by rambling and chattering like an idiot. So that there's no awkward pauses. You know what happened when a pause occurred? He started asking me questions about my life. Who would have thought? Sometimes girls we talk so much that a guy can't really get in a word edge-wise. And then we leave a date thinking; it's like he didn't even ask about me, he doesn't even know anything about my life. Was it because you wouldn't shut your pie-hole? Maybe. Try these tips and I guarantee you'll have a great date, and remember smile.
