I have come to the realization that not trying to impress the other person and letting them impress you makes going on dates far easier. If you place too much pressure to make a positive first impression and if you put too much stock in result and outcomes then that's where the nerves come from.

Act the way you always act. Don't fake it! Be yourself, because that's the person this guy wants to go on a date with. You!
And everyone gets nervous on their first date! I was super nervous and I managed to fall into a trough on my first date (long story!). But, we're celebrating our 1 year anniversary on Thursday, so I can honestly say I am the poster girl for bad first dates that end up okay.
You'll be fine! Trust me!
