For most people, a blind date is a nerve-wracking experience. If you want to convert your coming blind date into a perfect date, follow these tips for making a good impression on a blind date.
1. For a perfect blind date, your date spot should be appropriate. The venue must be comfortable where you people can talk. Going for a movie can turn out to be a bad idea as in a theatre, you are compelled to sit in silence. Another inappropriate spot can be nightclubs where talking to someone may seem like screening. To have a perfect blind date, organise a meal. Avoid meeting in isolated places or taking long drives together as it can become a safety issue afterwards, especially for women.
2. Prepare yourself in advance to leave a long lasting impression on your date. Take a shower, shampoo your hair and dress smartly. Avoid wearing a provocative dress and choose comfortable clothing. Avoid putting excess of makeup and look fresh.
3. For a successful blind date, a good conversation is extremely important. To initiate a conversation, bring up some light on general topic/s.
