10 Online Dating First Date Mistakes That Must Be Avoided:
By Joshua Pompey
So you have an online dating first date? Congratulations, but don’t get too excited yet. No matter how much chemistry you may have had prior to meeting, the first date is where the game really begins. Fail here and all your prior work will be flushed down the drain.
Let’s take a look at a few online dating first date mistakes that must be avoided if you want to receive a second date:
Calling a woman beautiful over and over doesn’t make women think that we are super nice guys who will treat them like gold. It is creepy, and a turn off. Women, especially beautiful women, like to earn their compliments, not have their buts kissed for what they look like by strangers.
2. Letting women make all the decisions.
This is not a misogynistic comment. It is a fact of life. Most women want men who will plan a date and take charge. Asking for approval on every detail shows a lack of confidence, and inability to make decisions. This is very unattractive to women. Man up and show you are capable of being a man.
3. Not dressing for the occasion.
Style is important on an online dating first date. Women will be making judgements, so dress for the occasion. Clothes are a reflection of the man underneath. Nice clothes are also the easiest way to improve our physical appearance.
4. Talking too much.
This is often reflective of self-importance, or a lack of confidence. Keep the conversation balanced. And if she won’t stop asking you questions, she may be the nervous one. Don’t be afraid to cut her off, and flip the questions back in her direction.
5. Talking too fast.
Another online dating first date mistake. Talking too fast is an indicator of nerves. The last thing we want is to appear is lacking in confidence. If this is a problem for you, practice controlling your voice with friends and family. Practice makes perfect.
6. Do not over sexualize the conversation.
There is a big difference between innocent flirting, and crossing the line of what is appropriate. Online dating first dates are essentially blind dates by nature. No woman wants to hear crude and aggressive remarks from a stranger, or anyone for that matter. We don’t want to be complete nice boy saints, but we do want to be respectful. Harmless flirting is key, with just a hint of sexualization at times is key.
7. Touching your date too much.
Aggressive touching on an online dating first date is almost never appropriate. Unless every sign she is giving is clearly asking for it, behave yourself, or you will eliminate all possibilities of ever getting physical.
8. Not touching your date enough.
Confused? Don’t be. Touching your date too much in aggressive ways is bad. But innocent touching on an online dating first date is critical to establishing a connection. Making small touches on the arm, lower back, etc., are important to do throughout the date. Just don’t get carried away.
9. Arriving unprepared.
Always prepare for your online dating first dates with great stories to tell. Too many guys just show up and hope for the best. Bad idea. Plan the same way you would for a job, test, sport, or anything else you want excel at.
10. Not using body language effectively.
Fidgeting, looking away from your date, not sitting up straight, etc., will all reflect poorly. Body language is a window into who you are as a person. In addition, it can be used to your advantage. A little silent flirting with the eyes can often have more of an effect than any vocal expression.
