Now if things go well initially you may want to have a back-up plan for how you can continue the date.Find a fun activity in town (mini golf, bowling, live music) and see if she’s interested in going right then and there.Show up smiling First online dates can cause a lot of anxiety for both men and women.
To help you make that date a success (so you’re likely to get a second one), here are some tips to follow for having a great first online date.
Keep it simple If you’re planning a first date with a girl you met online there’s no need for a major time or financial commitment.
Ask the right questions Guys often get stuck asking dull questions during first online dates. So rather than jumping from one thread to another, dive deeper into each one.
They’ll bounce from one question to the next (from “Where are you from? After you ask her where she’s from, maybe ask what she thinks of her hometown, or what kind of things she did for fun growing up.
Show interest Sometimes guys out on their first online date will try to “play it cool” and avoid showing any real interest.
But if she doesn’t think you’re interested or connected with her she very likely won’t see the point in getting together for a second date.
Meet up for coffee, take a hike together, go for a stroll around a cool part of town, etc.
This will give you a chance to see if any chemistry exists before committing to something more involved.
Questions like these go deeper into who she is as a person and will get her to open up on a deeper, more emotional level.
