Does anyone really look forward to a first date?
First dates are supposed to be exciting, a time for discovery and getting to know the quirks and laugh of someone new. You’ve agreed to the date because you’re interested in the person who has asked you out. The thing is, no matter which way you look at it, a first date is but an interview - not for a job, of course, but for a partner. You use this time to see how the conversation flows. You know whether they’re funny. If you’re really interested, you see how they land their vote politically, too. It’s all-important, and yet so many things can go wrong on a date.
This is where the nerves kick in. Will it be the spinach in the teeth of old? Will it be the brownie you bite into that breaks your tooth enough to need same day tooth crowns sorted out? Will you get plain old stood up? The nerves are real, and the things that can go wrong on a first date are also real. They can seriously test you and knock your confidence, so forewarned is forearmed!
Let’s take a look at things that could go wrong on the next first date you have - so you can be ready for anything.
