Another helpful first date tip is to let the other person talk. Allowing your date to talk shows that you are interested to know more about them. If she does not immediately pick a topic she wants to talk about, ask her a question.
For first dates, it is important to make eye contact. Your full attention towards your date conveys you are interested in what they have to say. When it’s your turn to talk, you can be assured that this gesture will be returned.
