A short and sweet post today. No I am not going to give you a curfew! It is my belief though that on a first date you should make sure you leave at a respectable hour – meaning you aren’t out partying at 2am. There are two reasons for this:
The first reason is so that you give the impression of being a respectable lady. You are on a first date and therefore you are setting a few standards. One of these being respect. A gentleman shouldn’t want to keep you out all night partying on a first date. He should want to see you home at a reasonable time, it shows that he doesn’t see you simply as a ‘good time’ girl. You don’t need to be Cinderella but you should consider that this man should earn your time and he should want the challenge of earning it, if he is serious about a possible future with you.
The second reason is a little more simple. If you meet someone and you spend a few hours together and have a really good time, leave it at that point. Do not try to drag out that feeling into awkward silences or lack of conversation. You do not want to simply stay out to keep the feeling going. Instead it is far better to leave whilst having had a great time and are interested to see that person again. A little taste of something good makes you want more, over indulging makes you sick.
Sounds so simple but far too often we fear ending something in case we don’t see or hear from that person again. If someone has enjoyed your company and felt like time has flown by they are going to be far more interested to see you again and sooner rather than later. When you feel the conversation slowing a little, simply look at your watch and say you better be heading home….or pick a place that doesn’t close too late and then it is sorted for you!
Start small and grow tall Pride!
