Posted by | September 5th, 2017

Have you been working hard to land that first date opportunity with a Jewish woman you've met through an online Jewish dating site? Has she finally agreed to give you a shot? If so, then obviously want to go out of your way to make sure it is the "perfect date" – no pressure or anything! So how can you make sure it's a memorable first date that goes off without a hitch? We've got you covered so all you have to do is follow these simple steps.

Involve Your Date

Often when people plan that all important first date they do it on all their own, without input from their date. The problem with this is that you may choose something they aren't into after all you are just learning what each other's interests are. Instead try to come up with three to four plans and then give your date the options to choose from. This shows you've put in the effort and planned out some options and that you care about her opinion. These options should also include the date timing. Ask your date if she prefers a weeknight, a weekend day, or evening. The timing should work for both of you.

Book in Advance

If the plan she has chosen involves something that allows you to book in advance, make reservations, or purchase advance tickets – then do so. The last thing you want to do is show up and find there is no tables available at her favorite new Jewish restaurant, or that the movie you wanted to watch is all sold out. Booking in advance also shows that the date matters to you and you took the time to make sure it would go smoothly.

Try Not to Go Overboard

It's very easy to go overboard on that first date, but that isn't always the best route to take. A first date should be something light that you both enjoy. Ideally it should also give you an opportunity to chat and get to know one another. The perfect first date isn't about how much money you've spent and how lavish you've made it, instead it should be fun, comfortable, and a learning opportunity.

Put Thought into Your Clothing

This doesn't mean you need to go all out and show up in formal wear, but you want to look presentable. This is your chance to put your best foot forward.

Show Up on Time

It doesn't matter if you are dating a Jewish woman, an Asian woman, or a Latino, the absolutely worst thing you can do on a first date is show up late. At the same time, you don't want to show up early making her feel rushed and flustered. Instead punctuality should be a priority.

Last But Not Least – Keep a Positive Attitude

The final step is to make sure you go into the date with a positive attitude. If you tell yourself it's not going to go well, then chances are it won't. There is no reason to go in with anything other than a fresh perspective, at the very least this is a chance to meet someone new.
