A first date can be intimidating. Between figuring out what to wear, considering safety, and worrying about making a great first impression, there’s a lot to think about. The last thing to worry about is the fine details. In fact, when it comes to the little things, you have an opportunity to stick to your comfort zones to make yourself feel more natural. That is, if jewelry is something you love that makes you feel good about yourself, don’t hesitate to break those statement pieces out. If not, that’s okay, too. For tips on how to go into a first date at your best, read on.
Making a Great First Impression
Making a good first impression starts with being you. When considering jewelry, a great idea could be anything personal that shows off your personality. Initial necklaces or personalized bling are a great way to go when it comes to meeting your Tinder match, for example. An initial necklace will tell your date that you’re confident in who you are and that you love yourself. It will remind you of that, too. Regardless of the type of relationship you’re hopeful about, whether you’re looking for companionship or more intimacy, your date will be more likely to want to swipe right all over again if he can see that you’re being yourself and unafraid to take those filters off.
By being upfront about who you are and letting the little details of your true self shine, you’ll also be sending messages about who you are. While it might be tempting to doll yourself up to match someone else’s online profile picture standards, the truth is that you likely hope to date a person who likes you for you. When accessorizing your outfit and even picking it, it’s okay to break outside your regular routine—but don’t go to far.
Choose and outfit and jewelry that represents your real identity. The same way you’ll give him your real phone number if the date goes off well, you’ll want to be able to show him your true self, too.
Feeling Confident and Sexy
Many people worry that they need a certain look, amount of money, or a particular style to increase their odds of entering a long term romantic relationship. They spend hours trying to figure out ways to feel sexier before an initial date to increase those odds. While it’s great to do what you can to feel your most confident, one of the biggest misconceptions about dating is that putting on a persona will get you further. Instead, the opposite is true. When looking to feel confident and sexy on date number one, your best bet is to stick close to your real-life style and personality. Plenty of men will admire you for being you. When choosing your outfit and jewelry, go with what you naturally feel sexy in instead of putting on a persona.
Setting Dating Expectations
The world of dating, and even sometimes love, can be complicated. At times, you might even feel like giving up or like you need that warrior shield up just to make it through a first date. A great way to handle this is to have an honest conversation before that first meeting.
Especially if you’re seeking an alternative arrangement, conversations ahead of time are important. For example, there are many common misconceptions about dating a sugar daddy, so you’ll want to be sure you and your potential sugar daddy are on the same page ahead of time if you’re considering entering into a sugar relationship. Setting expectations ahead is always a great idea.
At the end of the day, your initial date with any potential partner should be as much about you as them. By being yourself, wearing the usual bling you feel comfortable in, and staying true to your personal style, you’ll feel more comfortable and able to give them the best representation of you. When it comes to your next first romantic meeting, try not to worry about the little details and instead focus on the bigger picture. A first meeting can be a lot of fun. Throw your favorite necklace on and don’t forget to bring your smile with that eye contact to your next dating adventure.
