How do you show up on your first date?

Is it true that the first impression matters? During this first encounter with another person both forms a mental image of the other person. Impression accuracy varies depending on the observer and the target being observed.

Well, people will always judge you by how you are dressed, your skin tone, your body language, your demeanor, your families, and even your mannerisms. These first impressions are almost nearly impossible to reverse or undo, and they regularly set the tone for the relationship that follows.

Most of the ladies will agree with me that when meeting a man for the first time, we all want to look classy and sassy. But is that enough? On your first meet up with someone:

Present yourself appropriately

Do not exaggerate your dressing. You do not have to look like a model to be noticed and appreciated. But remember you have never met this person and your physical presentation will attract him or her.

Be on Time

Arriving early is much better than arriving late, and is the first step toward creating a great first impression. Punctuality is always polite and creates a good picture of you.

Have a winning smile

A smile will always make you interested and while bringing some easiness between the two of you. It also makes you more appealing as people are instinctively drawn to people who wear a bright face.

Be courteous and attentive

Bad behavior will ruin everything. Imagine meeting a person for the first time and they are on their phones while you are addressing them?  It is always great to give all of you to the acquaintance. Give them all of your attention and do not get side distracted by other people.

Be yourself.

Do not try hard to be someone else by inflicting accents by pretending to be someone you are not.  Be your authentic self which helps in building trust and earning some respect.

Always remember that:

Dating is like searching for the perfect wine. One date is too fruity, another too dry, and still another too much bouquet (cologne overdose). But once you find the perfect variety that suits your taste, get drunk.
