12 Things Your date Instantly Notices About You

You met this cutie on a dating app, at a party, or while you’re out and about. He asked you out. You’re ecstatic! This is it! You’ll be able to swoop in and get the partner of your dreams. It all starts with the right first impression. So, what makes a first impression great? Let’s take a look at the things your date will instantly notice.

Your Mood

Let’s start with the most obvious things a date will notice…your mood and attitude. If you’re dressing up for a date, you’re never fully dressed without a smile. Being upbeat on a date is the easiest way to show your date that you’re excited to hang out with him.

If you can’t bring yourself to be upbeat, it may be better to reschedule. It can make a world of difference.

Your Teeth

A smile makes a huge difference. It is one of the first things people notice about a date. It’s also an important factor in how your date goes. As many as 83 percent of all individuals listed teeth as a “make or break” factor in attraction.

Are you not ready to invest in braces and whitening quite yet? Don’t worry. You can still brush your teeth and ensure that your breath is good to go.

Body Language

Have you ever met a person whose words never seem to match their facial expression? Or who never quite seemed as happy to be there as they should be? It’s often a case of body language not matching what they say. Your date will probably notice if your body language isn’t sincere.

A bad date often starts with bad body language. After all, it’s hard to feel like your date is going well if you notice your date backing away from you or staring at a phone screen.

Your Outfit

It’s true. Date night outfits are a thing because your date is going to check out what you’re wearing. You don’t want to look like you rolled out of bed after a bender on your date. It’s important to look a little put-together. You want to look good, stylish, and ready to impress; however, it does not mean that you need to invest in expensive designer clothes.

Your sense of fashion says a lot about who you are. Are you the fashionista of your group? The sporty-chic person who flaunts that gym body? Show off your personality already!

Your Timeliness

Contrary to popular belief, there is no such thing as “fashionably late.” Being late on a date, particularly without texting your date a heads-up, is a major no-no. People judge people who are late. It’s a sign that you don’t take their time seriously or respect them.

A good rule of thumb is to try to show up five minutes early. That way, if things get sticky along the way, you have a little time to spare.

Your Sobriety

There are few things as alarming to a new date as finding out that your date pre-gamed before meeting up with you. At best, you’ll look like someone who really doesn’t want to be there. At worst, you’ll look like both a trainwreck and an addict.

If your date notices that you have a drinking problem before you even sit down at a restaurant, they’ll probably split. Truth be told, they’d be right to do so.

Your Photo Similarity

We all hear horror stories about people who catfish others online. Maybe it’s using old pictures or someone else’s photos entirely. Either way, if your Tinder date doesn’t look like the person you agreed to meet up with, it’s a major cause for alarm.

You need to look like the photos that you posted. Otherwise, your date will likely bail. Lying about your appearance isn’t sexy.

Your Manners

Manners matter a lot more than people want to admit they do. “Please” and “Thank you” are just the start. You should put down your phone while on the date, smile at the waiter, open doors for your date, and be on your best behavior.

If you start a date by being disrespectful to others around you, your date will notice it. This is particularly true if you’re rude to the waiter.

What You Talk About

Everyone has experienced a date with someone who only talks about themselves. In some cases, you might even experience a date who refuses to talk to you aside from one-word answers. Conversation is the key to a successful date.

A good date will have a fun conversation that involves both parties chatting it up equally. Peppering your conversations with questions about your date will help you make an immensely good impression.

Your Transportation

Your date might get a glimpse of how you got to the date. At times, this can be pretty revealing about your personality as a whole. If you biked there, they may figure out that you’re local. If you drove a Maserati, they probably will assume you’re wealthy.

A good rule of thumb is to avoid showing off your wealth. If you have a fancy car, make sure your date’s into you (rather than your wallet) by taking a cab.

Your Sense Of Humor

People love a good comedian, especially when they’re dating them. You don’t have to be funny to have a noticeable sense of humor. How you react to your date’s jokes can be just as telling (and even comforting) as the jokes you tell.

So go ahead. Share a laugh. You’ll be glad you did.

Your Hygiene

This should go without saying, but it’s still worth reiterating. Your hygiene is something everyone will notice about you, regardless of whether they’re dating you or not. A smelly, poorly-bathed individual will not get many repeat dates.

Before you go out, take a shower. Brush your teeth. Do the deodorant thing. Even perhaps perfume yourself up if that is your thing.You’ll be glad you did.

Make ‘Em Feel

Five years from now, your current date might not remember your name or where you went on that date. However, they probably will still remember how you made them feel at night’s end.

Dating is all about feelings. Are you giving your date a good experience? Or, are you giving them material for another nightmare story?
