How To Behave On A Date
The day has come for you and your date to get to know each other more thoroughly, in a personal way. Possibly both of you are excited to have a personal meeting and be able to exchange opinions, but how to act on a blind date? The best thing is to show yourself as you actually are.
First impressions can sometimes be misleading. Think that on a blind first date the first impression focuses on the physical and in the way you act? It is not the only factor that influences success and not the most important.
There are several factors that can determine a good first impression. Men who raise the tone of their voice and women who vary it are the most successful according to one scientific study. According to another study from the University of Durham, in just 2 seconds you can know if someone is outgoing or not just by looking at their face.
How to behave on the first date: what to do and what not to do
These are some of the things that are good and others that are not so good, according to psychologists.
What to do: Keep it simple
Essentially, the first date with someone you’ve met online is about finding out who you really are and if you both have that chemistry that will keep you dating. The place and the conversation that you choose can, of course, influence this first encounter. A dinner date may be too formal for a first date. Keep it simple by choosing a simple location, having a coffee or walking through the park will help to keep the date quite relaxed and will probably give you a calm and natural environment so that you both can get to know each other better.
What not to do: do not make yourself look like someone you’re not
A psychologist explains: “Do not change your personality, do not make yourself pass for another. Sometimes when some people seek to impress, they try to do everything to be perfect, saying yes to everything and never showing disagreements. But maintaining your own personality is probably the best thing you can do on a first date. Do not forget your own opinions, this is, in fact, the most positive way to seduce a person”
“To find a potential person with whom you can spend the rest of your life you need to be yourself and show yourself as you are. Let that person fall in love with who you really are. Try to be comfortable with yourself and trust that the right person will recognize the good and positive that you can bring to a relationship”.
How to behave: the importance of body language
A good way to show interest in your date is to maintain eye contact, to show that you are interested in what you are saying. The question is not to force it, to go natural, to look simple. If you feel attracted to your date and you want to show it, adopt a more forward stance, supporting yourself in the conversation to express your interest.
A successful first date comes from trust, being open and being attractive.
How can you be interesting?
Maintaining a proper conversation is the key to success. While the physical appearance is the first impression, the tastes and hobbies are a very important part of the “second first impression”
Not all of us can give what is asked of us, the important thing is to show ourselves in a natural way, try to value sincerity most of all.
