#3 Be prepared. A first date is kind of like a job interview. Make sure you’re ready for what she may ask you. She wants to know about your background, what your friends are like, what your hobbies are, and what your aspirations are. Rehearse a little beforehand, so you know how to answer any questions she throws at you. #4 Truly engage with her. Take a genuine interest in her and her life if you want to make a lasting impression. Ask her questions about what she enjoys doing or what her family is like or where she went to school. Really listen to her answers. If you’re not that interested in her, she’ll pick up on it.
#5 Show off your personality. Try to be outgoing, chatty, and push yourself out of your comfort zone. Some of the most awkward dates are when the other person is super shy and hasn’t got much to say from themselves. Don’t make her feel like she intimidates you or else you’ll kill the spark.
