The Agape Team has set up over 1000 first dates. We are the experts when it comes to first dates and making sure our clients go on a second date! Check out our favorite first date tips:
What is your favorite first date dating tip? “When on a first date, leave all of your work related concerns, thoughts, stresses and work mentality at the office. As long as you have a job, your resume is not important at all at this case. Be ready to share what makes you a great and interesting human being and the rest will follow. Also, there is no need to use your professional interviewing skills. Just relax and be human!”
What is the worst thing you could do on a date?
“The worst thing you can do (except for being late) on a date is talk incessantly about yourself. A conversation is supposed to be a two-way street. Being willing to share about who you are is definitely a great thing, however you must be sensitive to social cues and make sure that the other person is interested in what you say. Engagement is key when it comes to getting to know someone new!”
What is your favorite first date dating tip? “Don’t go to your date straight from work. Try and allow some time between the end of the work day and the beginning of your date to get out of work mode, both in mindset and attire.”
What is the worst thing you could do on a date? “The worst thing you can do is be rude because you are not attracted to your date and in an effort to not “lead them on”. If you aren’t interested at the end of the date, just be direct and honest. Being rude on purpose is passive aggressive and not a healthy way to date.”
What is your favorite first date dating tip? “Remember that the purpose of a first date is to figure out if you want a second. That’s it! You’re not there to determine if they are “The One”, or if they are interested in getting married or having children. You’re there to get a better sense of who they are and if they are genuinely interesting to you to further explore on a second date. Have fun!”
What is the worst thing you could do on a date? “Other than talking about your ex, which I have already said is a no-no, the worst thing you could do on a first date is be sexually aggressive. Chill out. It’s a first date! If it works out, you have your entire relationship to be sexual, but right now… you don’t want to scare your date away with making advances that the environment or mood may not call for, especially when meeting through a matchmaker! If your date is laughing your advances off, chances are you’re making them feel awkward, and they are just being nice. Cool it!”
