Dating Advice Video: Best First Dates Tips For Women

1. Make a good first impression: These relationship experts remind us that you only get one chance to make a great first impression. Within three seconds of meeting you, a man will decide whether or not he wants to see you again, so make those three seconds count!

2. Don’t show up late: If you aren’t punctual, then you’re telling your date that you don’t respect their time. If you’re running late, make sure to send a text at least 10 minutes before you’re supposed to be there, just to be courteous.

3. Don’t drink too much: Men hate it when a woman gets too “sloppy” on a date and can’t handle whatever amount of alcohol she drinks. After all, no one wants to date a lush!

4. Have an exit strategy: He’s nice, but you aren’t feeling it. If that’s the case, don’t waste your time — or his. Be polite and tell him that you think he’s great, but there just isn’t a connection. Most of the time, he’ll appreciate your honesty.

5. Don’t have sex with him: Can you have sex with a man on a first date? Sure. But will it work out? Highly unlikely. Men can have sex with anyone with no emotional connection, so if you’re just looking for sex, then go ahead. But if you want a relationship and love, then you should wait!

If you follow these first date tips, you’re more likely to succeed at getting a second date…and a third date and a fourth date!
