Donít put on a huge act for the girl or guy. You want the other person to know who you really are, and to see if you are compatible with them at that level. It wonít work if you arenít being at least part of who you are. You should have nothing to hide.
Know your partner:
If they have a tattoo with a skull on it somewhere on their body Ė chances are they wonít want flowers on the first date. Know (or at least try to figure out) what kind of a person they are, take them someplace they would feel comfortable.
Know your partners pet peeves:
Donít be burping or something if you know the other person hates it. They wonít call you.
Donít buy into the ďmake them jealousĒ thing:
Most magazines will tell you itís a good thing to make your partner jealous, Itís one thing to tell them someone was checking you out, itís another thing to say you went out on a date with them. Start packing your things.
First date is never a good time to meet your friends:
I want to get to know you first before I meet your friends. Remember that there is always the possibility that your friends may tell your date something you werenít ready for them to know, or didnít want to tell them in the first place. Donít leave it to chance.
First date is never a good time for them to meet your ďexĒ:
Just donít do it. This is not first date material, only tell your partner what they ask, and donít make it sound like you still miss him or her. You canít, if you want to have a successful relationship.
Donít be super needy:
Everyone loves attention, but wanting too much attention is never a good thing, they want to know that you can be independent, and that you donít need them 24/7.
Take a dive once in a while:
Going to see a chick flick, or staying in to watch the game every once in a while didnít ever kill anyone.
Donít ask too many questions:
Getting to know someone is one thing, asking for their life story is another. If there is something specific they want you to know, theyíll tell you when you or they are ready for it to be out in the open.
Parents are a no-no:
Nothing good can come of this on the first date, wait until later or things are more serious before parents get involved.
