Preparation is key to having a successful first date, and we’re going to share our step-by-step guide to prep for success. So get ready as New Jersey Singles reviews the ultimate guide for single men to get ready for a successful first date.
1. Leave the Baggage at Home
Our matchmakers have arranged a date for you, a quality date with someone we believe you’ll hit it off with. This isn’t your standard date. We’ve done extensive screening to ensure she fulfills your criteria and shares the same lifestyle, core values, and relationship goals as you.
We’ve done the hard work for you, so try to relax and have a good time. Whatever issue you’re dealing with at work or with family, leave it at home. Venting to your date about your demanding boss, or mentioning that an ex is still harassing you can quickly turn your date off. The first meeting is the time to impress your date and focus on lighthearted subjects, not bring out the hardships of life.
2. Groom to Perfection
Some men just don’t get the concept of taking time to look good. Grooming is very important to women, so you need to take time to groom yourself before your date. If your hair is shaggy, go get a haircut. If your beard is long, trim it. If your fingernails are dirty, trim and clean them. Good grooming also includes having fresh breath and a nice scent. It should go without saying, but we have to say it anyways: this is the only chance you get to impress her.
3. The Right Clothes Make All the Difference
Dress for the date you want, not someone you would settle for. As matchmakers, we always tell our clients to dress to impress. The right clothes will make you look more desirable in her eyes. Dress for the occasion. Keep in mind that our matchmaking service is where professionals turn for quality results in their love life, so you should dress to meet a like-minded professional.
The key is to dress nicely without going overboard. You don’t have to rock a tuxedo if you’re just going to grab coffee. As a general rule of thumb, dress slightly better than casual. You want to look sharp and well put together, even for a casual coffee date, all while remember not to overdo it.
4. The Rules of Engagement
One of the biggest mistakes we see men make on dates is talking too much about themselves without letting the woman speak. Of course she wants to get to know you, but it has to go both ways. You need to ask her questions and engage her in conversation, all while not treating the date like a formal interview. Remember to leave the conversation about previous relationships in the past and to stay away from hot topics of conversation, like sex, politics, and religion.
5. Always Smile
It’s been said many times before that the world would be better if everyone smiled, and we’re sure you agree, right? Smiling is contagious and can turn the entire date around. The best way to greet a date is with a warm and welcoming smile. This is the best icebreaker you could ask for on a date.
We’re so happy for you, and we hope you rock your upcoming first date. You are in good hands because you’ve outsourced your love life to the #1 matchmaking service in New Jersey. Now is your time to shine and impress her by following this step-by-step guide to first date success.
