Dating is hard, especially when you’ve been out of the game for some time. If you’re looking to get back on the bandwagon, then good for you! There’s something really magical about meeting someone that you just click with. It’s understandable that you might be feeling some nerves, so let’s take a look at how you can get back into the dating game.
Know what you want from the experience
The first thing you need to consider before even heading out on your date is what you want from the whole experience. Are you looking for someone to ultimately settle down with? Or are you after a quick romantic fling? Perhaps you don’t have much free time and would rather find a sugar daddy? Whatever it is you want, it’s important to lay all of your cards out to begin with so that nobody gets hurt.
Knowing what you want will make things easier on you in the long run. Not only that, you won’t be wasting any time with someone who wants different things than you do.
Have your hair done
One thing that always makes a woman feel good is having her hair done, and if you’re well overdue for a new cut and style, this is the perfect time to go for it. Whether you plan on changing up your hair colour or sticking to what you know, you’ll feel more confident by having your hair styled.
Focus on how you smell
How you smell makes a huge difference when it comes to dating. The way you smell is one of the first things people notice, and if you don’t smell particularly nice, it might be a turn off. If you smoke, consider switching to vapes before your date so you don’t arrive smelling like an ashtray.
Dab on some of your best perfume on your wrists, neck and behind your ears will certainly get their attention, especially if you give them a hug upon arrival.
Choose somewhere comfortable
Dating can be nerve wracking enough without the added anxiety of being somewhere you’re not familiar with. Wherever possible, try and choose somewhere comfortable to have your first date. This might mean at your local park with a picnic basket, or it might be a bar you both know well. Either way, the more comfortable you are, the better your date will go. You’ll be plenty relaxed and won’t find it hard to show your date who you are and what you’re about.
Buy a new outfit
If you’re like most women, finding the perfect outfit for a first date is near impossible, especially when you’re standing looking in your wardrobe. Instead, don’t give yourself the stress! Head into town and treat yourself to a sexy new outfit that will blow your date’s mind. A new outfit will make you feel more confident and help ease any nerves you may have.
Finally, remember to be yourself! If they are the person for you, they’ll absolutely love every part about you from day one.
