They say people form their first impressions within the first minute of meeting someone. So, if you want to impress the beautiful lady or the charming man at the bar after finally mustering the courage to ask them out, then you might want to work on your first impressions. With a good first impression, you can leave a lasting image in their mind and get a chance to endear them with your charms at coffee or maybe even dinner.
The most important thing when it comes to first impressions is how you are dressed. Make sure you are dressed elegantly. Your outfit should complement your age. If you are entering your twenties, then it may be time for you to let go of snarky printed tees and dress more like an adult. Put on a watch and find a simple yet classy outfit for your dinner dates. Although important, it is not just about your outfit. First impressions also take into account your grooming. Make sure your hair is well combed and styled every time you leave the house. Clothes should be well fitted and shoes must shine.
Aside from your grooming and outfit, a lot can be inferred from your choice on the menu and your dining etiquettes. If you are ordering a beverage, then make sure you are keeping it classy, just like your outfit. Avoid filling more than a quarter of your wine glass at a time and do not chug down any more than a sip of wine after every few moments. Moving on to your choice of meals. Pick something easy to eat. Don’t order a messy joe when you know that it is going to leave ketchup stains on your shirt after dinner. Use a fork and a knife where possible and never touch your meal. Eat slowly and have a light conversation during the meal. You do not want to crowd your partner, but also don’t want an awkwardly silent dinner. With these tips, you should have an amazing dinner and surely get that second date.
