  • 1. If the other person is not there 10 minutes after the time agreed to cancel & bail. 99% chance someone who is late will not respect you OR after they see that you waited they won’t.
    2. Never do dinner/movies on a first date. Should be something that’s easy to walk away from if you don’t like how it’s going.
    3. Never change anything about yourself for a date... for example if you never wore your hair a certain way but your date mentions he likes it this other way... don’t change for him.
    3b. Never dress at a lower level than you were dressed when you were asked out. It should be that level or better.

  • Not to get too excited about her no matter what- remember that its purpose is to have a good time and to get to know each other a bit better.

    Plan it well, and do not expect perfection. Dress up. Both of those show that you've taken it very seriously.

    Do not have sex with her on the first date. Kiss her only if the chemistry is really good and her body language indicates that she wants me to.

    -some slight sexual tension has to be built in in a date or it will end up in friendship
    -don't mention how awesome you are let him/her figure out (hehe, only I do this shit)
    MOST IMPORTANT

    -be early

  • Smile a lot, have an upbeat mentality, stay optimistic, get her to talk about herself and compliment her on looks once and compliment everything else (her hobbies, interests) , find similarities and express them, always seem friendly.

  • 1 ) Be yourself.
    2 ) Don't let the person you are dating make you do anything you'd regret.
    3 ) Rule 2 but in reverse.
    4 ) Don't use your cellphone unless there is an emergency.
    5 ) Have an out. (a friend/event/thing you "need" to do if it doesn't go well)
    6 ) Have fun.

  • Split the bill
    Let the girl get nervous or make her nervous so that you are able to impress easily
    Give her a kiss on cheeks if date ends well, in some places such kisses are given in the beginning of date.
    Listen to her and pay attention to each word that she says unless she's whining about her fight with some other girl.

  • Don't go into it with any expectations. Go to enjoy yourself and see where the date takes you, and focus on the important things about the other person

  • Don't say 'I love you' or get stare-ie and too keen. Do not under value or change your own opinion to agree with your date constantly. Do not worry about being judged negatively just enjoy the date and have good conversation as if it's a friend.

  • 1.) Communication is big thing on a date
    2.) Stay away from texting that is a red flag
    3.) Always respect your date that is important
    4.) Before the date both couples should agree
    on whom should pay for the date.

  • There are so many but, at my age they're as second nature as what I do in everyday life. For me its don't allow the woman to do something on her own that I can help her with, for instance the door, her coat, chair, calling the waiter...

  • I never did. But if i do,
    I'll ask to be Blunt.
    I'll ask, "How will you react when I cutoff your call or just don't answer or i don’t call you for bo reason".
    Everything I want in a girl is dependent on that single answer.
    Secrets & Lies are worst breaker.
    I learned that from movies

  • Is her phone the most important thing in her life?
    Is she giving effort to actually take her of herself?
    Good Hygiene?
    No ex mentions
    Is she desperate or looking for a bond?
    How she treats others

  • Drive myself. Have a code word with my best friend in case the date is going south lol. Dress nice but not too much (I aim for girl-next-door look). Offer to split the bill. Come prepared with questions and conversation topics. Don't ask anything too personal on a first date. No sex until exclusivity is established.
