First dates can be exciting, yet nerve wrecking. We plan days ahead what we're going to wear and on the main day, end up running around like a chicken with its head cut off, trying to decide what else to wear because that sexy outfit that you bought on Amazon just isn't hugging the curves quite right.
Or we get that pimple right on our cheek or forehead the night before and anxiously wash our skin raw, thinking this will make it go away.
We become perfectionists to impress our date and that can leave many of us feeling frustrated and insecure when we actually meet our date.
So, how can we forget this whole perfectionism and feel confident and excited on our first date?
It's as simple as it sounds: Be yourself.
That's it. That's all you have to do. May sound cheesy and cliché, but it's true. Being ourselves allows our date to see us just as we are and we don't have to work so hard to make them like us.
There'll be dates that we'll go on, where we just won't click with the other person on a romantic level and that's completely okay! Maybe you're better off as friends and that's great!
It is not our job to impress people, but to seek out people who enjoy your company for being you.
It's exhausting to try to make people like us and it's no different going on a first date. Whether we try to impress them in the beginning or not, the truth of who we are will always come out eventually, so why not be real from the beginning?
Try this out and watch how much funner and genuine your dates will become.
Let us know how it goes! Thanks for reading. :)
