All of these suggestions are based on the assumption that you are looking for a long term, lasting relationship.

1. Wear Something Nice

It may seem trivial but what you wear on your first date is crucial not because your date is shallow and would just want someone pretty or handsome but because they will judge you from the way you carry yourself. For instance, if you wear something simple, they will see you as the girl next door or someone who just goes with the flow. If you wear something that is too fancy, they might see you as too high maintenance. If you wear something slutty, then you might be seen as just that.

What you wear is what you are when it comes to first dates so make sure that you wear something that will reflect your personality. That way, you will be showing your date the person you really are, no pretenses.

2. Be yourself, do not overdo.

If you get into a relationship with someone, you need to also know that the person will accept you for who you are and not for who you pretended to be.

There is a saying that people often put their best foot forward when they want to create a good impression. Nothing wrong with that. In fact, people do that all the time when they meet someone new or when introduced to someone. But this does not mean airing your dirty laundry for all the world to hear. Temper your stories and make sure that you only tell stories of things that will put you to a good light. Sensitive issues that you feel your date should know about yourself can probably wait for another time.

Do not lie and make yourself appear to be more than who you are. This can seriously backfire if you get around to the second date and you need to tell the truth. Remember that people do not like liars and some are not forgiving when they are being deceived.

3. Try to appear mysterious

Mystery is everything when it comes to romance.

When searching for that special someone, your soul mate, if you will, is especially difficult now-a-days. I suspect that some of the stems from the fact that we can connect much easier now than ever before. Yes, this can be a good thing, however, it does not make dating any less stressful.

As I mentioned earlier, a make-or-break moment in any relationship is the first date. The things you do and the things you say will create the first impression that will stay with your date for a long time to come. These are a few suggestions that you should avoid:

Do not Reveal too much

Do not appear too interested.  Do not order foods that are difficult to eat
