16 First Date Tips for Guys to Charm Your Date
You tend to be extra careful when you go out with a girl for the first time. As they say, first impression is the last impression. You just don’t need to put on your best clothes, you have to be at your best behaviour as well. If you fail to make a good impression and give a good account of yourself in the first date, just know that there is not going to be another date. Being careful does not mean being conscious about everything. Be yourself. If you try to put up a pretence, she will figure out soon. Cast a spell on your date with your charm so that she would want more of you and plan another date with you. Wheedling the girl for a second date is tougher than making her say ‘yes’ for the first one. Make her feel that you are someone she can trust and hold on to for some time before she decided whether she wants to get into a serious relationship with you or not.

Here are the 16 First Date Tips for you to charm your date
- Be chivalrous
The one quality that a girl expects to find in a guy is chivalry. She would not like you if you do not show any courtesy towards her. You must pull the chair for her, offer her the first morsel of food and give her a change to speak before you talk. Gift her a bouquet of flowers when you ask her out on a date. All these gestures go a long way in ensuring her that you are someone who respects women and know how to be courteous towards them. [ Read: 11 Bad Social Habits that Make You Undateable ]
- There should be a plan
After she agrees to come on a date with you, don’t waste any time and start planning everything immediately. Do not leave any stone in turned to make it a memorable date for her. Of course, you have to keep a check on your budget and not overspend but that does not mean you will cut costs unnecessarily. Do not leave anything for the last moment and prepare everything on time.
- Pick a good place
The location where you intend to take her out on a date is very important. The place could be a restaurant, club or even an outdoor location. Just make sure she likes it. The place should be such that it should give you both a lot of privacy and ample scope to enjoy each other’s company. You could go for a desolate location but make sure the place does not make her feel uncomfortable. [ Read: 14 Ways to Charm Her on The Very First Date! ]

If you have promised to pick her up, then reach her place on time. If she prefers to come on her own, you must arrive at the location before she does. Waiting your girl on the first date is the biggest blunder you can make. She will appreciate you for your punctuality.
- Pick her up
As mentioned earlier, she could either prefer coming with you or drop by her own. Having said that, you should insist on picking her up from her place. If she says a yes, then you must know that she trusts you. Do not push her if she says no. Respect her choice and do not get disheartened.

- Dress up well
There is no specific dress code for a date. Wear something that you are comfortable in and do not wear anything just to impress. Just make sure that what you wear is something that she would like to see you in. Your style should be understated and classy. Wear something that fits you well and dress appropriately.
- Wear a perfume
We do get attracted by the smell of a person. So, wear a perfume the fragrance of which would drive her crazy. Body odour is a big turn off for women and you must ensure that you smell good. The better you smell, the more she will be attracted towards you. . [ Read: 6 Ways To Get Your Boyfriend To Dress Better ]
