How to avoid first date blunders

Step 1
Be yourself. Don’t try to be someone you think your date will like.

Step 2
Make a good first impression. This includes cleanliness, confidence, and consideration. And be on time!

Tip – Go out for coffee or a drink instead of dinner. It’s less formal and less stressful.

Step 3
Respect your date. Listen and be courteous. Your conversation shouldn’t be a monologue or an interview.

Step 4
Keep the mood light and fun. On a first date, no one wants to hear about past relationships and problems.

Tip – Turn off your cellphone. Give your date all of your attention.

Step 5
Enjoy the moment. Appreciate the person you’re with, share some laughter – and breathe!
