Don’t be on your phone.

Better pay close attention to this

You’re on a date because you want to get to know the other person, so why are you on your phone? You could check the score of the game later, you could text your friend back later, but you won’t be able to have this first date again later. So, put the phone away. Your eyes should be on your date, not on your phone screen.

Don’t be someone other than yourself.

Don’t change who you are to date someone you want. You deserve someone who loves you, not a fake version of yourself. You don’t have to act perfectly or lie about your favorite movies. You really don’t. You will find someone who loves all the little details of your life. However, if you continue to put on an act, you will never meet that person. Be yourself.

Guys, don’t forget to be a gentlemen.


Chivalry should never be absent on a date. Pick her up at her house, charm her parents, tell her she is beautiful, hold open her door, pull out her chair for her at the restaurant, and pay for the meal. Treat her like the treasure she is. Treat her like you would want your future daughter to be treated. Girls have to deal with a lot of jerks and you shouldn’t be one of them.

Don’t force the first kiss.

Your first kiss with someone is something profoundly beautiful. It will not only be a moment, but it will also be a memory. Therefore, you shouldn’t rush the first kiss. It will happen when it is meant to happen. It doesn’t have to happen on the first, second, or third date. If they keep on going on dates with you, that means they likes you. Just relax and enjoy staring into their beautiful eyes. Kissing will come when the time is right.

Don’t stress about it.

Dating can be really stressful. What should you wear? What can you do to not seem boring? Is it appropriate to bring up your obsession with Taco Bell? There are a million things that can cause you to be stressed out, but don’t give them this power. Instead, just relax and enjoy the ride. Someone really great agreed to spent time with you one-on-one. That is so awesome! Stress makes you miss out on enjoying your date. Don’t stress out and just enjoy the date.
