5 first date dos


 
With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, the rush to find the perfect date is on. Although you don’t want to get your hopes up and plan too far ahead, there is nothing wrong with strategizing a game plan. Check out our gotta-know helpful hints for your special night.


Dress practical. Not sure where you're going for your date? Of course you wanna dress to impress, but you can never go wrong with jeans, a super cute top and a comfy pair of flats. Hiking in heels or bowling in a poofy dress hardly sounds like fun.


Dig a little. There' nothing wrong with doing some Facebook stalking – just don't admit you memorized his interests and posts. Awk. Be natural and subtle. Easy example: If he's a Hungers Game fan, ask him if he's excited to see any new movies.


No conversation hogging. Nothing is worse than listening to someone drone on about themselves for hours. Yawn. Make sure that you ask about him and what he likes to do. After all, if you're into the guy, you should be stoked to hear his stories, right?


Speed dial your BFF. Before you head out the door, a quick pep talk from your BFF can help calm some of your nerves. No one knows how to make you relax better than your partner in crime. That in mind, do not call or text her during your date. You don't wanna send the wrong image to your guy.


Be yourself! The most important “do” of all: BE YOURSELF. A boy will never like you for who you are unless you let him see who that is.
