How do I overcome first date nerves?

My first date was really awkward and I'm trying again soon. What do I do if i'm shy but don't want to appear that way? Some friends recommend drinking a bit before to calm down, any other tips?

  • Drinking to overcome an attack of nerves isn't the answer.
    Try and relax. The emotional demands of a date are not like the emotional demands of performing a heart transplant.
    Be yourself and you should do fine.

  • How long have you known this person? If not long try texting for a bit, get to know each other over text so when you have the date you already at you comfort level and can be you.

    "Fuck it, life's too short".

  • Make sure you let out all of your gas before you leave. No boy likes a party-pooter.
