Hence, it would be better off preparing some talking points in advance. Moreover, if you know your date’s hobbies, you can prepare several relevant topics pertinently. In this way, not only can we avoid awkward silence, but also, we can let the date feel cared for.

For instance, issues like salary, ex and so forth are expected not to be mentioned on your first date. If you step into your date’s “minefield” unfortunately, you can change the subject skillfully, enliven the atmosphere and resolve unnecessary embarrassment. Do note, however, that don’t overtalk for the sake of atmosphere, which may leave an untruthful impression on the other side. Generally, it is just fine to convey sincerity to your date.

You can praise your date’s dress, hair, temperament and so on for first date. Never be stingy with your praise as it will increase your charisma and attraction. Why not!
