The dating world can be intimidating.

There are so many things to think about and remember, especially when it comes to first dates.

Luckily there are some things you can do to make it a little easier.

1. Quit Creeping🕵

This rule kind of falls in the pre-date category, but we thought it was important anyway: close out of his Facebook profile and quit stalking his Insta.2

It’s so tempting to want to find everything out ahead of time, but it can also make it easy to pre-judge.2

The only way to know if you’re compatible is to talk in person.

2. Be on Time⏰

A first date can be stressful enough without the other person wondering if you are going to show up, so make extra effort to be on time.

I had guy thinking I stood him up and I was only 10 minutes late.

If you are running behind, then send a courtesy text at least.

3. Consider Budget💸

It may be tempting to want to pick that fancy restaurant that you’ve had your eye on, but be considerate of different budgets and pick a place that has a wide variety.

This benefits both parties if you end up splitting the check, too.2

4. Don’t Drink Too Much 🍻

Having a little buzz on a first date can definitely take the edge off, but getting wasted is not ideal.

For one, nobody wants to be the girl that gets plastered and has to be taken care of all night.

And it can be unsafe – you don’t know this person fully, and you want to be aware of what’s going on.

5. Wear Something Comfortable👢

I always overthink about what I’m going to wear on a first date.

I get torn between wanting to look hot in a pair of fancy heels or be comfortable in my cute (but plain) flats.

My advice?

Choose the comfortable option.

You don’t want to have a bad time because your feet hurt.
