Whether you’re arranging for a special night out to keep your relationship interesting or you’re meeting someone who’s still new and want to make sure that you make the best impression, confidence is one of the most important things when it comes to pulling off a successful date. However, given how very on the spot you might be, it can be hard to whip that confidence out of thin air. As such, we’re going to look at a host of tips that help you summon it up from within more reliably.

Get ready to talk

The vast majority of any part of any date is going to be the conversation. Unless you’re going out to just see a movie, with no dinner or anything to go with it, you’re going to be chatting, so it’s a good idea to have some open-ended questions in mind. It’s all about balance. Make sure that you’re asking questions, listening, and responding to points they make, but be ready to answer questions, as well. A little give and take are going to make the night go a lot more smoothly so stay engaged and conversational.

Get some clothes that make you feel great

If you feel like you look good, then you’re going to walk into your date feeling a lot more confident about yourself and how you present yourself. A little time spent on grooming beforehand is essential, of course, but you should also look at some cute date night dresses that you might get especially for the evening. That way, you’re going to feel a lot more confident about how you look because you just bought something that you feel positively about, easing worry out of your mind.

Start the flirtations early

The moment you first see your date when you go out with them can be a pretty awkward time. The air needs to be cleared. So, why not get it out of the way beforehand? One excellent tip that has made the rounds lately is to send a text before the date so that you can begin with the lines of communication already open. Be enthusiastic, confirm that you’re looking forward to the date and, if you know anything about where you’re going or what you’re doing, make a relevant comment. It can serve as an ice-breaker to continue the conversation when you get there.

Pamper yourself beforehand

How you spend your time leading up to the date matters more than you might think it would. If you go on a date after a day of stress and worry, then it’s more likely that you’re going to carry that with you and it will affect your impression of your date. As such, taking the time to pamper yourself, be it with a nice, relaxing bath, a visit to the spa, or some extra time spent on self-care before you get ready for the date can help you bring a wholly positive vibe with you, which your date is most likely going to feel.

Do something out of your comfort zone

You might think “wouldn’t it be harder to feel confident if I’m doing something brand new?” However, if you’re taking a date outside of your usual comfort zone and it’s something that neither of you has done before, then you both have the experience of going blind into a new thing. Depending on what it is, it might be a little alien at first, but you can then share the delights of the new experience if it’s great or you can laugh about how awful aspects of it were if you both aren’t feeling it.

Remember that you’re both in the same boat

There’s a very good chance that your date is feeling a lot of the same things as you. Provided that you both intend to have a good date and make a good impression, you’re both going to be feeling the evening out and getting to know one another. Try to remember that you’re both just human beings, looking to spend a nice evening with another person. Don’t get too hung up on your own perceived errors or any worries about how it’s going.

Try not to worry too much about the date when you’re out on it. Allow yourself to enjoy the moment and trust that the tips above are going to help you make your best impression. There’s no guarantee as to how any date will go, so try to relax and let yourself enjoy it instead of worrying too much to do just that.
