In fact this is basically my first date ever, never had a girlfriend, and I know this girl has dated alot. I'm 23 and she's 20. I really like her and don't want her to be dissapointed with me, though I do think she knows I haven't dated before. I'm nervous that's all!

Just relax. You can do it. Think of your date as hanging out with a friend--all you're basically doing for it to be successful is have some friendly conversation with a little flirting thrown in. And if you're worried about the flirting part, there are a few things that will help:
1) It may just come naturally the more you relax. Sometimes the more you think about it, the less you're able to do it.
2) It will be easier if you have this mindset: "Let me see how cool she is--let me see how much fun I could really have with her" NOT the mindset "I hope she likes me; I hope I don't screw this up." (This point is maybe the most important. Don't worry about her being disappointed--that's none of your concern! Your only concern is to go out and have fun--and of course, see if she's fun enough for YOU.)
3) Google the term "cocky funny" to get some good examples of the type of conversational flirting a lot (but not all) girls respond to. You don't even have to memorize or use some of those examples, but read them and try to put yourself in that playful, confident mindset. DON'T be afraid of saying the wrong thing to her or making light jokes.
4) Maintain good eye contact with her and good posture. That will show her your confidence and can be a form of flirting all by itself.
And that's it; hopefully that's not overwhelming for you. But keep those things in mind on your date and you'll be fine.0
