If you already know the person and are pretty certain that you both like each other then by all means go for the big romantic gesture. My husband turned up for our second date with a bottle of wine, flowers and a box of chocolate biscuits, but soon realised he only had two hands and decided to leave the biscuits in the car! Making an effort shows that you care and that you want to make a good impression.
Unwashed hair, bad hygiene and yesterday’s clothes aren’t likely to win anyone over.
It is important that the other person has a chance to learn about you, but try and make sure that you are listening as much - or more - than you are talking. Don’t forget your manners Bad manners aren’t attractive and are likely to irritate your date.
It doesn’t cost you anything, and it will make a big difference to the other person’s enjoyment of the date. Early on in their relationship Jack said something like this to Susan: ‘I don’t know if we’ll get married in the future but I want to treat you so well that if we split up one day and you end up marrying someone else – I would be able to look the other guy in the eye, shake his hand and say: “Here is Susan, I looked after her for you.”’ They did end up marrying each other but I thought that was an amazing thing to say. But wouldn’t it be fantastic if people were better off in life from having spent time with you, not worse off?Sex is a powerful bonder and if you sleep together on the first date it may blind you to any fundamental problems between you.It helps if you can establish that there’s more to the relationship than just chemistry before ripping off each other’s clothes.So don’t just be polite to your date, be kind to other people too. You may get away with that if you don’t see them again after the first date but if the relationship does last any longer, you may find yourself in a tricky situation later down the line.So, if you are separated, don’t say you are divorced.
