How to Make a Good Impression on a Date?

If you have no clue how to make a good impression on a date, then you are in the right place to be enlightened. With dating apps becoming popular, meeting new people has never been this easy. Dating is also more accepted now than it was a few years ago. Whether it is a movie date or a dinner date, here are some things that you might want to keep in mind. Check out the following things to do when you are on a date.

Dress well:

Dressing well is a sure sign that your date will be attracted to you. Looking too casual, and messy can be quite disrespectful to your date. Also, you don’t have to overdo your dressing. Always bring your unique style and keep the make-up minimal. Loud make-up can sometimes give wrong impressions and can put your date off.

Be yourself:

You can be yourself, but not to the extreme. Everybody has their own quirks and idiosyncrasies and you can portray a little bit of that. Moderation is always the key. All of us have something special and unique about us and it is on occasions like this that bringing these to the surface makes sense.

Be honest:

On your date, you needn’t be very honest. You need to be honest in matters where lying may cost you the relationship. For example, you can lie about what you ate on that particular day, but it’s better you don’t lie about the job you are doing or the relationships you have had. We live in such a small world and the truth about us may have a way of coming out with social media and technology giving us every ounce of detail about us.

Be Kind:

Your date did not meet your expectations and you feel so disappointed. It is important for you to be kind and considerate. Avoid being rude, mean or sarcastic on your date as that may upset your date.

Compliment when necessary:

Guys do compliment girls about their looks and their outfits. Girls can also compliment guys, but not go overboard. A compliment is a sure way to make the conversation more interesting and can lead to more exciting discussions during your date. Sentences like, ‘’ You are really cute ‘’and ‘’Being with you is fun ‘’, can make your date more comfortable.


It is normal to be anxious before a date. You can relax by playing some feel-good music, talking to a buddy who will have a few tips for your date or taking a small nap. First-timers will be more anxious than people who go on regular dates and that is normal as it is a new concept to them. If you are a few dates old, being worried may longer be there in your dictionary.
