Mature Dating: Things to Avoid on Your First Date

You may have been friends for life but the moment you date your best friend also, the entire equation changes. Let’s just say that dating increases the expectations that you have from people. And therefore, you may have known a person all your life, yet when you take them out for a first date, the equation between two people just changes suddenly.

This is probably why there is a big hype around the concept of “Dating”. Ideally defining, dating was the process of meeting strangers with the prospect of knowing people and then seeking the compatibility which may or may not have culminated into the romantic equation between two mature adults.

Getting Ready For Your First Date

Mature Dating has certain principles if the ideal approach is to be followed. One would include asking for a date. Now this is important. Ideally a man needs to ask a woman out on a date. And then take her, escort her with courtesy and then make her feel loved and special for that evening. This concept may have changed a bit with more fun and adventure thrown in, but dating can apply to any two individuals of any age. So while you get ready for your first date, we tell you what you should not be doing on your first date.

Do not delve into the past:
We all come with our past burdens and baggage and for some while it may appear to be very common, past can leave bruises that haunt for a lifetime. This is why to dig into some ones past is not really suggested on a first date. Give your mature dating partner the time to open up and share what he or she might want to share.

Do You Like Flowers?

Do not pretend:
You are a person who you have been all your life. Do not pretend to be anything different than that. The point is simple, if you do not like flowers then you do not like them. For the sake of date to praise flowers and agree to like them, is not good. It makes you someone you are not in the eyes of the date. And then naturally, that is what they would expect from you every time you meet them. There is no point in being what you are not, and then stressing the relationship.

Plan your date:
Especially on first dates, make sure you both have enough time to spare. A surprise may be a wonderful idea, but only if you know about the schedules to be followed. You cannot take someone out randomly without knowing their schedule. That would not let her or him enjoy the date.

Choosing a First Date Venue

Choosing the location:
Now this is important too! You may take her to the finest restaurant but that may be not her choice. Alternatively you can make a bowling event be better than the most expensive restaurant in the city.

Dress well for the occasion:
We do not want you to over dress but yes having a haircut, shave, wearing proper clothes and maybe wearing a perfume is a good idea.

Do not ask direct questions:
The excitement of getting to know her is good but then at the same time, you may be sharing a date with an introvert who will get offended if you just start probing around in their personal space. Understand the kind of a person you are dating, before you take the leap!
