How to Be Less Awkward On The First Date: 10 Tips

A first date is always the most awkward time because you don’t have much to converse about yet. Still, you want to showcase only the most positive sides and hide the negative. How do you become less awkward and more confident on the first date, especially if you like this person?

Together with bebe mur com, we welcome you with a comprehensive guide on how to master the art of Dating:

1. Realize that you won’t die if the date goes wrong

The first date is just a date. You don’t have to be all cranky about it because if it is your person, they have to accept you with all quirks and weird things you do. Understand that a person who overlooks your normal behavior is not compatible with you in the first place.

2. Plan the date

If you don’t know what to do and what to say, it is ok to pre-schedule every step and follow it. Just like with an exam, the more detailed your plan is, is the easier it will be to pass the test. But then, still, understand that your first date is not a test and if you are a planner, try to take things lightly. Write down your questions, not answers.

3. Medication is okay while alcohol is not

If you are planning to get drunk or high just for the sake of a good date, it is a terrible idea. Realize that this person will not be you, you and you still have high chances to mess this up because people behave differently under the influence of substances. If you suffer from anxiety, depression, or social anxiety, take your medication to relieve the symptoms.

4. Exaggerate your foolishness

If you are afraid of looking hilarious, write down some jokes or wear a funny outfit to diminish the importance of the following date. The more casual you will look, the easier it will be for you to open up.

5. Listen more if you are afraid to speak

If you don’t want to mess this up, ask more questions and then enjoy the person in front of you sharing their story. Not only will you understand them better, but you will also avoid uncomfortable pauses and a trembling voice.

6. Tell as it is

Confess to your date that you are feeling anxious and are afraid of being awkward. Since your number one fear is looking ridiculous, be faster than your fear. Say that you don’t handle first dates well and if the person in front of you is adequate and kind-hearted, they will understand and find it cute. Moreover, soon you will find out that your date is equally anxious and afraid of saying something wrong because we all are humans.

7. Bring them a present

A small gift will distract your date from noticing how fidgety you are. Show them that you came with the best regards and you take them seriously, even way too seriously for that matter. Not only will they appreciate your generosity, but you will also come across as a sincere person who cares about their date.

8. Avoid intimidating places

A comfort food place will be the best choice if you want to feel less anxious and awkward. If you are planning to impress your date with a high-end restaurant, be prepared for the fact that you might mix up all the cutlery and forget where the knife goes. By finding a comfortable place, you will decrease the chances of messing the date up.

9. Don’t feel like you are obliged to entertain your date

All in all, it’s not your responsibility to do all the emotional labor. Your date has to equally contribute and intuitively understand when you might be running out of questions. Don’t torture yourself by trying to be perfect because no one is.

10. Set realistic goals

Don’t expect a wedding after a first date or even a second meeting for that matter. Everyone has to be prepared for a small fail, and it is completely alright because this is why people go on dates.


10 Things that Might Ruin Your Wedding

The best way to ruin a wedding is, of course, to keep everything under control. Make sure that the manager checked your phonograms, took care of your guests, and be sure to negotiate arrangements with everyone else who works at the wedding. After all, how can you relax on such an important day: what if something goes wrong? Who else will check everything, if not you and your future spouse? If you do not want to drink sedatives instead of champagne at your wedding, trust the professionals!

In order for the wedding to become truly unforgettable and held “in the same breath” for the couple and guests, a whole team of “little dwarfs” usually works behind the scenes. The sole task of the newlyweds is to relax and enjoy that day to the fullest. But what circumstances not dependent on you can go wrong?


Here’s Why Online Dating Is the Best While in Quarantine

A growing number of people is now going to work from home – some in the view of self-isolation, some because of the transition to the remote places of their firms and companies. What is going on will certainly affect the organization of people’s lives later on – when everything begins to return to normal life as the epidemic declines. The quarantine is already affecting people’s relationships now.

This print unleashed the animal in me. I felt like a lioness.

The last few weeks we have been really experimenting with the photography for my blog. I really want my blog to have a bit more of a magazine look, without losing its touch of reality. To get more editorial looking pictures, the key is in finding the right setting and surroundings. Having the right backdrop can give a pic an instant effect. We found this setting nearby the beach in Cala Conta, Ibiza. We even had to climb a bit to reach it, but I’m so happy we did – given the result you’re looking at :). Anyways, let’s talk about this awesome brand I’m wearing, named: Afriek. Every item in their collection is unique and handcrafted by talented craftsmen in Central Africa. This brand only uses print fabrics from the Ivory Coast and Nigeria, which gives every garment a very authentic and unique look. I really love brands like these – and I’m so happy I can show you guys a brand that not everyone knows yet. So guys, what do you think of this outfit and pictures? Would love it if you left me a comment on here or on my IG-account, because I’m super curious :).

Pictures were shot with a Nikon D750. Separate post about my camera & lenses coming soon!
