Step 1

Dress attractively but comfortably. Don’t wear clothes that make you feel stiff or self-conscious.

  • Step 2

    Be aware of your posture – it speaks volumes about you. You want to appear alert and confident by sitting up straight.

  • Step 3

    Compliment your date. Don’t just say ‘I like your shirt.’ Be sincere and notice something that he or she took time with.

  • Step 4

    Learn to flirt (see “eHow to Flirt’) and try it out. Don’t overdo it, though.

  • Step 5

    Realize that you don’t have to tell people how great you are. It’s better to show them instead.

  • Step 6

    Be interested and interesting. Listen actively to what your date says. Ask questions and don’t interrupt.

  • Step 7

    Enjoy yourself, no matter what. If you’re easygoing and fun to be around and if you can roll with whatever comes your way, you can’t help but make a great impression.

  • Step 8

    Thank the other person for the date – always, without exception. Good manners will get you far.
