Never been on a date before? Don’t know what to talk about on your first date? If you have no answers to these questions, don’t you worry, here are some tips to keep in mind to impress your prospective spouse…
1. Behaviour and Personality
This is important, as your partner needs to know how similar your lifestyles and attitudes are. If the two of you are opposites, it may create problems between the two of you in the future. So, speak up and say as much as you can about yourself and find out about your partner’s nature as well.
2. Future Planning
You need to know how serious your partner is about the future. Find out if s/he believes in saving money for the future, what are his/her plans for the future, etc. This way you’ll know how matured s/he is and if the person is really ready for marriage. But of course, save this topic for future dates.
This is a must, especially for people who’re used to living a simple lifestyle. If you’ve been brought up in a simple way, it’s best to look for a guy who’s lifestyle is similar or you may have a lot of issues after marriage. S/he may be a party person and may expect you to join him/her everywhere, which you may not be comfortable with. So, clear these things. Ask your partner how often does s/he eat outside, go shopping, partying, etc.
4. Trust and Understanding
Trust is very important in every relationship and it’s okay to bring up this topic in a subtle way on your very first date. Most couples go through a tough time after marriage because their partner is not trustworthy or is over-possessive. Your partner obviously won’t reveal whether or not s/he is trustworthy and understanding, so you need to spend more time with each other and get to understand each other better.
5. Feelings For Each other
If you like the person you’re on a date with, make sure s/he knows it. No matter how shy you are, you’ll have to express your feelings. If you don’t take initiative in calling him up or fixing up a meeting, etc the person may feel you’re not interested and may move on. So, be clear.
