It’s a big step to ask a woman out on a date. As great as it sounds, though, it does take some planning on your part. You could go all out and reserve a whole restaurant and the bowling alley after, but that’s a bit of overkill. The absolute best way to have a first date is to keep it extremely clean and classy. Not sure how to do that? No worries, you’ve just got to start before the start.
Start Before the Start
That sounds confusing, but it’s true. The date starts even before you see her, so when you do ask her, have a date scenario ready. Women love men who plan things since it makes them seem like they have initiative. Just try not to sound like you’re telling her what to do. If you’re going to be picking her up, clean your damn car. There is nothing less sexy than stepping over a mountain of wrappers in a dress to get into a guys car (or so we hear). Your car represents how clean you are in the rest of your life, and if it’s messy she will remember forever as well as judge you on it completely. Air it out, give it a quick wipe-down, and you’ll be good to go.
Once you’ve dressed to impress, give her a call and tell her exactly what the date will entail. Women like to prepare for everything, and her lipstick may not go with the bowling shoes that she’ll have to rent.
Show up on Time
Showing up on time means that you are not early and you are not late. If you’re late you’re creating stress for your lady, plus she might think that your tardiness means she has time to do some curls or something and you’ll catch her in the unsightly act of being half ready. Showing up too early does the same thing and feels like a slap in the face. Women take every minute they can to get ready, how dare you rob them of that. If you are going to be late, call ahead and let her know a realistic new e.t.a.
Immediately Dole out the Compliments
It does not matter if you don’t give a damn about her dress, you had better have a compliment ready as soon as that door opens. She wants to be told that she’s gorgeous and honestly expects it since she has put in a lot of effort for you.
The Big Finale
After you’ve opened all of the doors for her, take her to the restaurant. Notice that there’s no other option listed here. The first date is there to get to know the woman you’re with. Going to the movies or a concert doesn’t allow for any talking. While this is an important date, you’re not proposing to her or anything like that. Keep it simple and take her to a restaurant and maybe a museum. Even if you don’t like the art, you two can still make fun of it together. Of course, you’ll be paying for both.
