The date is an opportunity to show her what your personality is like as that is what she will or won’t find attractive, so make sure to not just be yourself, but your best self.
Try not to stay in your head, and if you’re stuck just make observational statements about things you notice about her, and get her to expand on her responses.
This is great for her too as she doesn’t know you that well, but she does know herself so mentioning things you notice about her gives her opportunities to talk about something she knows a lot about – herself!
Even when there are awkward silences, just embrace them knowing that the situation will pass and there’ll be better chemistry and it always does.
Don’t feel the need to always jump in and fill the gaps with talking. Maybe even shoot her a wry smile to convey you’re confident and don’t even need to keep the conversation going.
To be clear nothing kinky, maybe put her hand on the back of yours briefly while you’re talking to let her know it’s ok to touch you for example.
Really, don’t have a plan, just more of an ideal vibe you’d like to create and take it from there in the moment.
This doesn’t mean that you should run your own dictatorship!
It’s okay to ask her opinion of something, but rather than asking her what she wants to do, suggest something to do and if she doesn’t like that suggest something else.
So long as you’ve built a great vibe and she’s interested in you, she will want you to kiss her or at least try!
