Ok, so you’ve finally used your favorite online hookup platform and netted a date with a girl you think seems super interesting. That’s a good first step, but there still remains the matter of actually going on the date, and making it so that the date goes exceptionally well. Because, of course, you don’t want to settle for a lukewarm night out with a cool British girl — you’re looking for an exceptional time, maybe even a one night stand. Who knows how the night will end? But what we do know is that there are a few tried and true tips that you can apply to your next date that will help you improve your chances of no strings attached fun on your next online date. Listen carefully, because this is your guide to having a truly special night.
Dress To Impress
This is an age-old gentleman’s rule, and there’s a reason why it’s survived the test of time. As corny as it may sound, the clothes you wear on the outside say a lot about who you are on the inside. If you show up to your date with a hoodie, joggers, mismatched socks, and old, broken-down shoes, you’ll catch a funny glimpse of your date as she runs off in the opposite direction in her high heels. Women want a man who they would be proud to walk down the street with, who looks as handsome as they are beautiful. British women, especially, having grown up with a touch more emphasis on class and elegance than the average woman, won’t tolerate sloppy attire on a first date. If you’re wondering how to impress Britains on a first date, the first step is to look the part.
Be A Gentleman
Regardless of whatever bad boy self-image you’ve concocted in your head, it’s important to remember that you’re going out with a lady, and she deserves to be treated as such. Hold the car door open for her, offer her hand as she climbs down a steep step — it’s not easy for her to be walking in those heels, after all! Listen to what she says and respond accordingly. Regardless of what your intentions for the end of the night are (chances are, they probably revolve around getting some casual sex), a woman won’t be having a good time with you if you act like a big jerk all night. It’s important to keep common human decency in mind when on a first date. And remember — you can be a bit of a bad boy and a gentleman at the same time. Think James Bond.
This one sounds easy. You’ve only ever been nothing but you, after all, and you can’t exactly accurately imagine being anyone else. Still, when us guys go out on a first date, we tend to get so caught up in making a good first impression that we take on a bunch of traits and say a bunch of things that have nothing to do with us. We leave our actual selves behind in order to become a conglomerate of “the perfect first date due”, which is an abstract concept that no one has ever come close to understanding. Before you go on your date, take a moment to relax, take a deep breath, and remind yourself that the best possible time for both parties on this date will be had if you be completely, entirely yourself, for the whole night.
Of course, there are dozens upon hundreds of subcategories in the mythical stud handbook in the sky. At the end of the day, though, the key to impressing any woman on the first date (including British women) comes down to a handful of basic principles. You understand the drill — this ain’t your first rodeo, after all. If this is, in fact, your first date, then you need to pay special attention to the tips we’ve gone over in this guide. Just play it casual, keep it cool. Be calm and confident, and let that energy pour out of you. She’ll notice it right away, and it’ll prepare her for when you’ll sweep her off her feet later on (we might mean that literally). Pick out the right set of clothes on your first date, be a genuinely good human being to your lady whilst on the date, and throughout your entire experience of knowing this person, remember to be yourself, and no one else. We think you’ll have a great time. Good luck!
