Yes, the anxiety will be present. What you have to do is to breathe deeply and enjoy the time you are spending with him. You have to act naturally and don’t feel aloof. Just try to picture yourself that you are hanging out with one of your guy friends. And please, don’t pretend to be someone you are not.
Don’t just smile and nod. You have to let the words come out of your mouth. You should know how to converse with him. Likewise, don’t make your conversation all about you. Make sure to also get to know him. It is essential that you come in prepared. Have a couple of questions stick to your mind. There will come a time that there will be a dead space in your date. Both of you will have nothing to say. If that happens, you can ask him some questions like what is the craziest thing he has ever done. Also, don’t forget to listen as well to the things that he is saying.
You are out on your first date. Obviously, first impressions always last. Moreover, it is the time wherein a person judges a book by its cover. What you need to do is to dress appropriately. Make sure that what you are wearing something pleasing. Obviously, a sexy black dress wouldn’t go well on a movie date. Likewise, wearing a shirt, jeans and snickers would be inappropriate for a dinner date. For dinner dates, wear a dress. Make sure it’s not too skimpy. Skimpy dresses send off a signal to men that you are trashy. You certainly don’t want that to happen.
