After being single for a while, one might forget how one chose whom to date back in the day. When going on a first date, which is similar to an interview, you might be picked or not, depending on how you present yourself. As much it may be disappointing for someone not to find you attractive, it shouldn’t concern you. However, learning these tips provided by relationship experts might just help you to carefully pick that person you would like to love and be with.
Differentiate hope and reality
It takes more than one date to completely know someone for who they truly are. Don’t go pouring your emotions out on the first date; it only shows fantasy and not realness. Give it time because some may not be interested as much as you think. Research shows that it only takes three months for someone who might be faking for the real character to be revealed.
Don’t be blinded by your feelings, but be cautious to use your head. Ask yourself if this is someone you would want to know better or you would rather leave it at that. Always be cautious not to rush into deciding things then later regret when it’s too late. Also, inform someone else, could be a friend or kin, where the date will be just for safety.
Pick up important details
Did they make you feel (un)comfortable at some point? Did they show up on time? These details may help you to know the kind of person you are getting yourself involved with. At all times, the conversation you choose should not make things uneasy for both of you.
No excuse for ‘bad’ behaviour
When you’re on a date with someone you like, you might choose to forgive their mistakes simply because you see a future with them. However, don’t ignore the automatic bad acts out of desperation call them out the moment they do something you don’t like. In the process, you’ll be communicating your standards, which is an attractive thing.
