First dates are very important because they are the time when both parties will examine each other and decide whether or not this is something that they wish to pursue. I have been on many first dates – but have only been on other dates with two men. This is because I notices certain qualities in them that I knew was something I did not like.

However, you have to consider the same rules being applied to you. If you truly like someone and want to make a good impression on them you need to know what is great to do and what things you should never do.

Ex Flashbacks

No one wants to hear you rant and rave about your ex for two hours or even for two minutes. It is acceptable to bring them up if they notice that you are guarded and you want to explain why – but don’t compare them and don’t keep mentioning them. All that will tell them is that you are still bitter and looking for a rebound person instead of wanting to make a committed relationship.


Table manners is something that our mothers taught us and for good reasons. Make sure that you are polite to the waitress and that you eat your food with your mouth closed. Bad table manners show that you are inconsiderate of other people or that you don’t want to grow up.

Don’t Monopolize

Remember that there are two people on this date and that you are trying to get to know each other. Never monopolize the conversation and talk all about yourself. Ask them questions and learn what you can about their life. On the other hand do not be too quiet or else they may assume that you are very shy.

Keep The Breath Mints

Before and after you have finished eating it would be wise to pop a few breath mints to make sure that you are not giving out a foul odor. Bad breath is a great way to keep people away from you – but if you like them don’t eat onions or garlic and use plenty of breath mints.
