Fortunately my personal dating saviors, Jodie and Diane Fanelli, the coaches of TheDatingCouncil.com are here to help increase your chances of landing that coveted second date with some simple yet impactful first date tips.
Check out these four tips!
1. Call Me
In a world that is ruled by texting, a phone call will make you stand out from the pack.
2. Location, Location, Location
The idea of the gentlemen has come back with a vengeance. When you are choosing the location make sure it is more convenient for your date. Bonus–a location closer to your date’s house will allow you to walk her home and hopefully get that goodnight kiss!
3. Small Gestures
Small gestures such as helping her with her coat or pulling out her chair showcase your attentiveness and can increase your chances of landing that second date.
4. Chit Chat
Keep it light; there is no need to get into heavy topics like politics or religion. Dates can sometimes feel like interviews, so try to not to fire off a million questions. As the date progresses, your date will reveal themselves.
