The great big maze that is the first date. It’s a puzzle that not many have cracked and there’s a good reason. First dates have a tendency of being very polarizing. It’s either two people hit it off right away because they have incredible chemistry or they just make like a train-wreck that’s headed for absolute disaster. It all depends and that’s probably why a lot of people can get intimidated by going on first dates. But what these people have to know is that despite the fact that first dates aren’t always going to be a walk in a park, thy aren’t all that difficult to navigate through either.
For those who are lucky enough, they go on first dates with people who they just share a natural chemistry with. These are the kinds of first dates that are just clicking on all cylinders. But then there are those people who are just inherently socially awkward and they have a difficult time maintaining the flow of a date in an organic manner. People shouldn’t be belittling the value of first dates. There are plenty of those who believe that a first date can tell a whole lot about the potential of two people to be together. You only get one chance at making a good first impression after all. And the chances that a second date are going to happen really rely on whether the first date showed signs of promise. So there’s really a lot at stake on a first date.
