what to do on a date

You may ask yourself, what to do on a date? The golden rule of dating is to always be yourself on a date. Tell the other person the truth when they ask you questions. If something is too personal, be honest and say so. That’s always better than lying. Remember, lying is never a good idea, but especially so when you’re on a date. You don’t want to portray yourself in a dishonest light. If you are not ready to share something with your new date, you can politely say you want to leave this information for later.

Share some of your vulnerabilities if you want to connect on a first date

People connect on chemistry and vulnerabilities. If you can be confident and share something vulnerable in the past that you went through and ask your date to do the same, your connection will immediately become better. You should start with sharing some of your successes, then go into your vulnerability. That way, you will not be seen as a cocky person and that only success at all times.

Also, you should share a little bit about yourself on the first date. The best way is to have stories that are either entertaining, fun or have values toward your listener. Then, your date will remember that she/he made you laugh and brought some new values. Your date should feel they are getting to know you and its fun.

Give them a little history. Tell them about your family and mention your career, things that you believe in, and your future goals. Tell them as much as you feel comfortable telling them, without boring them by talking too much about yourself.

Listen to your date

The next big rule on what to do on date is to listen to your date. Let the other person know that you are interested in them by listening to the things that they have to say. No one wants to go on a date with someone who isn’t listening to them, so be sure that you are listening to the things they are saying and that you are responding accordingly. If they don’t talk, ask them questions because it shows you are interested in them and the direction you would like to know about them.

What not to talk about politics, religious and your ex relationships

Be politically correct when you are talking to someone. You might not know what their beliefs are, or their views on certain issues, so try to be positive and refrain from bringing up hot topics, such as politics, if you don’t know how they stand. Ask them how they feel instead of blurting out your views, so that you don’t hurt their feelings.

Keep the conversation away from your past relationships is crucial on what to do on your date. This is not something that is healthy for either of you to want to discuss on a first date. You might be surprised at how easy it is to offend someone simply by talking about a person you used to know or a person you used to date.

It is easy to complain about your ex’s because, let’s face it, everyone has terrible ex stories. But try to keep the conversation pointed in the right direction, and away from your ex’s. It might seem hard at times to keep things going forward and not look back, but if you get into a relationship with someone, you’ll be glad that you did. So if you are asking yourself, “what do I do on a date,” looking forward is a positive way to live your life.
