How to make a great first impression on a date

A first date can go one of two ways. It can be a fun ride, full of laughs, new experiences and maybe even love. Or it can end up being a total disaster that leaves you both wishing you hadn’t gone out in the first place. The good news is that there are things you can do to make your first date more like a romantic comedy than an episode of Intervention. Here are some tips for making a good first impression on dates:

Be yourself

Be honest and open. If it is a first date in a country that is not your own like Malta, you don’t need to pretend that you are someone different just to impress those escorts in Malta. Be yourself, be confident in your own skin and let them really get to know you. Try not to make a big deal out of things and let the conversation flow on the first date with someone who could become your partner or even your best friend for life.

Be genuine and polite. There’s nothing worse than being around someone who acts like they have something better to do elsewhere when really all they’re doing is trying too hard to make sure everything is going according to plan without experiencing anything firsthand; this will only lead to disaster (or at least awkwardness). Instead, try to take a real interest in learning about his day-to-day activities rather than focusing more on what kind of car he drives or where his family lives; those are questions best left unanswered until you’ve been on several dates and spent a lot of time together.

Don’t talk about your exes, your pets or your children

  • Don’t talk about your exes. Yes, I know you’re going to be tempted to start talking about the old flame you’ll never forget. But keep in mind that this is a first date, not an opportunity for you to tell your life story (or even just half of it). Your date doesn’t want to hear about how great she was (or how silly she was), and she definitely doesn’t want to hear about how much fun you had together without her.
  • Don’t talk about your pets or your kids. The same goes for pets or children that have come into your life since your last relationship ended, even if they’re absolutely adorable! When it comes down to it, there are some things that need more time before we can share them with someone new, and that includes our kids or our furry friends

Don’t embarrass other women

The first step in making a good impression on a potential partner is simply not to embarrass other women. This means that you should avoid talking about other women in a negative way, or even making statements that could be interpreted as negative. You don’t have to be an angel and never say anything critical of anyone, but if you’re going on a date with someone new, it’s best not to bring up your ex-girlfriends or the fact that some girl at work was wearing pants that were too tight yesterday.

And while we’re at it: don’t talk about other people’s bodies in any way that might make them uncomfortable (or that would make you uncomfortable if someone did it towards you). It may seem like common sense, but there are still plenty of guys who can’t resist commenting on women’s weight and then wonder why they don’t have sex more often.

If you’re not interested in him, don’t let him think he has a chance

We all know the friend zone, but there’s also something called the “friend adjacent zone.” It’s when someone is so obviously interested in you that your entire relationship with him is based on “weird” attempts by both parties to pretend to be friends while also (secretly) wanting more. This can’t be healthy for either party involved and needs to stop happening immediately if both people want to remain friends after the date is over.

If you are looking for something serious, don’t get hooked on the first few dates

You can’t know whether or not you want to date someone just by how good they look and how much fun they are to be with. You have to spend time getting to know him first, both in the casual and serious sense. So if a guy looks like your type, give him time: at least a month of dating before you decide if he might be “the one.” If you think his looks are so impressive that they override all other considerations, keep in mind that the looks of that escort in Chch fade with age and life experience; if there’s nothing underneath those impressive features – if she’s shallow and immature she’s not worth it.

If you’re looking for something casual, don’t make it look like a job interview

Let’s get one thing straight: if you’re looking for something casual, don’t make it look like a job interview. I know this can be hard to remember when your heart is pounding out of your chest and you feel like you’re going to faint at any moment; that’s why it’s important to remind yourself that this is not a job interview. If you find yourself saying things like “Last summer I was working as an assistant at my uncle’s law firm” or “I’m hoping to get a master’s degree next year”-or worse, talking about how great your exes were-don’t worry; I have other tips to make sure your date doesn’t think he or she has a chance with you:

Don’t make out on first dates (unless the other person does.) Remember those dances in high school where there was always one girl trying to make out with everyone? She was never popular, she just thought people would like her more if she kissed them all the time. If someone tries to kiss me after knowing me for ten minutes and only having two drinks together, I go home early because I know that person isn’t interested in me as anything more than a friend who lets them grind on them while they listen to music they both hate.

Don’t be afraid to be subtle

When it comes to making a good first impression on a date, it’s important to be subtle. Don’t be too bold and aggressive in your intentions; don’t be too shy or aloof either. The key is to find the balance between being friendly and flirtatious without being too familiar or casual.

It’s also important not to come across as being too serious; there should always be some lightheartedness in your approach. It doesn’t matter if you’re talking about quantum physics or the latest episode of Game of Thrones: find some common ground with this person, otherwise it will feel like you’re being interviewed rather than getting to know each other over a glass of wine or two (or three).

If you meet to flirt, make it informal and fun

Sometimes, you may want to get to know a new person without putting too much pressure on yourself or the other person. You should be able to flirt with someone as easily and casually as you would joke around with a friend or co-worker. This can help you both relax into the situation, which will make a great first impression.

  • Be subtle: You don’t need to shove your feelings down his throat like an ice cream cone on a hot day, just let him know you’re interested in him by joking around and being playful.
  • Be direct: If someone seems interested in approaching you, don’t be afraid to ask them out (or at least check them out). But remember that he may not feel ready yet, and even if he is, he may not have the time right now. So don’t take the rejection personally; move on and try again later, when everyone is ready.


A good first impression is important. Remember that you can’t control everything that happens on a date, but you can control what you do in the moment. If you’re looking for something serious and long-term, don’t make out with your date on the first few dates (unless she wants you to). Instead, focus on getting to know each other personally and professionally.

If you’re looking for something casual or just fun with no strings attached, don’t make it feel like an interview. Get your date to get a sense of who you are by telling her what makes you tick: What are you passionate about? What makes you happy? What’s your crazy family like?
