5 Key Things to Remember When Dating

Here are our 5 top tips for dating this summer. From making the best first impression to planning that second date!

Make a lasting first impression

Be confident, make eye contact and remember to SMILE!

Don’t limit yourself

Dating is a fun way to meet new people and explore what you want in life, and a chance to figure out what you don’t want. Have fun, enjoy the experience and learn!

Know your dealbreakers

Enjoy dating and meeting new people but also be aware if there are any things you feel are non-negotiables in a partner. If in conversation, she says she never wants to have kids and you’ve already picked out the names for all 3 of yours – best to stay clear (NB: Keep these to 2-3, you don’t want to limit yourself completely).

Be the date you want to have

It takes two to tango. Put your phone away, be engaged in conversation and don’t bring up your ex. Ensure you’ve put all efforts in to make it a great date.

Date Number Two

For the second date, go and do an activity that you can both do together. It could be a painting class, mini-golf or even an archery session. It’s good to see what you’re both like outside of drinks and dinner. It’s a chance to let loose and really see how you are together!

Dating is fun so be yourself, have a good time and see where the date takes you. Let us know how the date goes!

Do’s and Don’ts for Dinner Dates

Whether it’s the first, second, or even the fifth date, a dinner date is bound to happen so here are our Do’s and Don’ts to ensure the best experience possible!

Do plan ahead. Plan where you’re going and what you’re wearing. Organising beforehand means you don’t have any last minute panics.

Don’t wear something that you wouldn’t normally wear. You want to feel comfortable and be as confident as you can be. It’s best to go with your go-to confident outfit!

Do keep an open mind, even if your partner ordered that one food you can’t stand. You never know where this date might go!

Don’t go for the messiest meal on the menu. We suggest staying clear of the Spaghetti Bolognese!

Do compliment your date. Whether it’s on their smile, the date venue or their sense of humour. Everyone loves a compliment!

Don’t talk with your mouth full. We know it’s an easy one but sometimes the conversation can be that great, you just don’t want to take a break but please do! You’ll thank us for it.

 Do have fun! Enjoy yourself. This is the time for you to learn what you want and don’t want, and to meet new people!

Don’t drink too much. No one wants to see the drunkest version of you on the first date! Keep it to 1-2 drinks max.

And most importantly, have fun!
