First dates are quite awkward. Even if you’ve read about internet dating, picked the perfect clothes, and selected the perfect supper, chances are that you’ll still have an awkward conversation with your date. We’ll suggest ways to create a conversation flow organically on your first date.
Don’t scrimp on the planning
it never hurts to have a plan in place, like preplanning some ice breakers. Make sure you have a few amusing or fascinating anecdotes which are ready to break the ice and make a good first impression. Come prepared if you want your date to feel open and comfortable.
Have realistic expectations
“Most individuals aren’t right for you, and finding the right one can take a long time.” Relax a little and don’t put too much strain on the situation. You can have fun with someone with whom you share a love interest. But, be sure you don’t over expect things and ruin the first date experience.
According to Hartman, you should avoid filling unpleasant silences with conversation. “That’s when people say stupid things and make it much more awkward for both of them. Listen, inquire, and simply be present. The more relaxed you are, the more relaxed they will be.”
