Landing a date is a big deal. No matter how good you get at the game it is a refreshing experience each time. For the newbies who have got the chance to go with that special someone, it acquires all the more importance. What it means is that all the hard work put in flirting and countless hours of WhatsApping has finally paid off. But, this is only half the battle won. The real struggle begins now. With so many things going through your mind, keeping a tab of little details can be difficult. So, here is a perfect first date checklist you should have by your side.
Keep In Mind Her Food Habits
So, you got a date with your dream girl. Now, it's your responsibility to make it the best you can. Food plays a key role in every date. But, what good will those extremely delicious prawns do if she is allergic to them? Remember, girls do like surprises but not the ones that put her in jeopardy.
Subtly ask her about her preferences. Don't put your interrogator hat on. Play it safe if you need to, to make it a success.
Inform The Match-Maker
A majority of the people meet their date via a friend, a cousin, at work etc. It is best that you give the person who you have met through an idea about your budding romance. There are chances that they may feel blindsided, after your date puts up a cosy picture of you two in a coffee shop on FB.
Be Cash Ready
Now you might think what kind of medieval behaviour is that. You are used to carrying your card and using it to good effect. But listen, there are some places which aren't tech friendly and don't accept plastic money. Imagine your date being held hostage by the hotel staff, while you try desperately to salvage the situation. Not cool, right? Cash works best. Period.
Put Your Phone On Silent
Your phone is the one true love you can't live without, we all know that. During a date, the same love can break the deal. Put your phone on silent mode before meeting her. If there's something important, put up a recorded message informing people that you are busy.
Carry A Condom
You might find this a little absurd, even cocky, but hey, who knows what might happen. It is best for you and for her to keep a condom handy in case things get fiery post dinner. She will only feel that you care for her. After all, safe sex is the need of the hour.
Clean The Bathroom
What? Where did this come from? This might be your response, but this fact is crucial. In case things get steamy between you two and she decides to come over, it is but natural she might want to use the bathroom at some stage. Having a shabby bathroom will only make her feel gross, nothing else. And after that, you can kiss your chances of making out goodbye.
Well, well... last but not the least comes the most important option of being presentable. It is always good to look good, there's no denying that. Wear well-ironed clothes, groom yourself properly, pop a mint for a fresh smelling breath and you are ready to go.
Remember, the date is about two people; so chill and involve her in the game and don't fret in case you miss out on anything but the last option.
