The last time I was on a proper first date was a whooping 12 years ago - eek! How about you? So when yesterday night I met up with my single and gorgeous friend, Olive who I used to work with years ago, I was all ears to hear about the little dating tips that are popular nowadays.
Back in the day I used to follow two first date rules: never an intimate dinner, as it can get super awkward. I loved going for 'drinks and sides' - like a hummus plate and a cocktail or a cheese plate and wine. And the second: always meet at the agreed spot, as first time 'small talk' can get really uncomfortable, especially in a taxi!
Well, here are two of Olive's last night tips that I loved: always get drinks that you can drink with a straw as you have too much to worry about already and smudged lipstick shouldn’t be on that list. And the other one is that dinner at the bar makes first date less intense and more social. I like that!
Lovelies, your turn: what are your first date tips? When was the last time you went on a first-date with someone new? How was it? I’d love to know. xo
P.S: Also, a few dating moves and a snazzy date-night outfit:)
P.P.S: Plus, table phone talk and how to avoid lipstick faux pas.
