Sometimes you just need to focus on the basics. Sure there are hundreds of tips on what to wear, how much to spend, when to kiss, should you bring your dog. But, I say don't fret and just keep it simple, and, above all, don't listen to me.
Don't Get Sloppy DrunkYou want to make it a night you love to remember, not a night you love to forget. Or a night you couldn't remember if you wanted. Look, just pace yourself, and remember you've got nothing to prove and you're trying to have fun. So, sure have a few to take the edge off. Just remember, you're trying to be Robert Downey Jr. now, not Roberty Downey Jr. in the 90s.
Don't Go DancingSee this? This is probably what you look like. And, that's not how you want to make a good first impression. So if you want to move it, move it; just go for a walk in a park.
No Matter How Much You're Into Fashion, Don't Go CrazyMaybe you consider yourself as a bit of a maven, but there's no reason to wander around looking like you are a 3 year old trying to dress yourself.
No One Likes a Negative NancyMaybe you had a bad day, perhaps your hamster is in a coma, but now is not the time to vent. You need to focus on the present and actually get to know the person sitting across from you.
If the Other Person Seems Incredibly Bored Just Call it QuitsThere's a simple rule for life, relationships and first dates, "If the bad out weighs the good, do something else." It's a first date, don't force it if the two of you don't have a connection, there is no reason to stick it out. Even if it seems a bit rude, at least you won't be wasting the rest of either of your evenings.
