First dates can be extremely nerve-racking, but they can also be a great time to really get to know the each other!  First dates usually mean first impressions, so there are many things to consider before, and during, your date.  If you’re new to the dating world, or could still use as much help as you can get, here are a few things to keep in mind!

  • Your outfit.  Chelsea Crockett - First DateUnfortunately, most of the time first impressions are based a lot on appearance.  I suggest wearing something that will reflect who you are.  If you’re bubbly and like to rock bright colors, go for it!
  • Where to go.  If he didn’t already decide where you guys are going, suggest somewhere that will make you most comfortable!  If you’re nervous about too much small talk over dinner, see a movie instead.  Or if you’d rather do something a little less formal than dinner, go mini golfing or hiking!
  • How he treats you.  Notice how he treats you especially since it’s your first time on an actual date with each other.  Pay attention to his manners such as if he’s on his phone a lot or if he’s only talking about himself!
  • Red flags.  These are so important!  Notice if he says or does something that you would automatically consider a red flag.
  • Keeping an open mind.  Doing this allows you to be open to something you might not be expecting.  Maybe you thought you had the person figured out but he could be much better than you’re expecting!

I hope your first date is everything you’re hoping for and more!

Love, Chelsea

A few months ago, I uploaded an article on first date do’s and don’ts. It was extremely popular (I even made a video off of it!), so I decided to make a part 2! Why not? There are always a few necessities, and a few things you should avoid, on a first date. Here they are!

  • DON’T rush anything. You might be secretly waiting for him to kiss you or wanting him to ask you out right there on the spot, but great things take time! Patience is a virtue. Just wait for the perfect moment that feels right.
  • DO be chill during the date. As girls, we like to overanalyze and over think everything that happens, especially with boys. Our heads may jump to the “OMG he definitely doesn’t like me” kind of thoughts. Just calm down and relax! And most importantly, be yourself!
  • DON’T only talk about yourself. Be engaged and interested in his life. Ask him questions and listen attentively. Yes, he is there to get to know you, but remember you are there to get to know him too!
  • DO be polite and considerate. Saying “please” and “thank you” might seem overrated to you, but I promise it’s not!
  • DON’T be on your phone the whole night. This is a big one. Our generation is obsessed with technology, but we need to know when to put our phones away. If you and your date both do this, there will be more time for getting to know each other, which is the main reason why you’re there!

What other do’s and don’ts do you suggest? Let me know below!

Most of us girls are at that age, beginning high school, starting to drive, etc., and we can’t forget dating!  First dates are a big deal, and I know I’m not the only one that can’t control their nerves when asked out on a date!  Whether you’re secretly crushing on your classmate or making plans with your soon-to-be boyfriend, here are a few quick dos and don’ts for your date!Chelsea Crockett - Dating

  • DON’T be too serious.  Everyone wants to have a little fun!  Make sure you loosen up and don’t be nervous!  I’m sure he’s just as nervous as you are, so keep the conversation alive and going.
  • DON’T bring up past relationships!  If you’re thinking about an ex, maybe you’re not ready to move on just yet.
  • DO be yourself!  Don’t try to be someone you’re not.  If you’re not yourself from the start, then they won’t like you for the real YOU!
  • DO be open to creative date ideas!  Just because your guy’s not the basic “dinner and a movie” type doesn’t mean he can’t come up with a sweet, cute date for the two of you.  Usually those turn out to be the ones you remember!
  • DO dress appropriate for your date.  Just because others girls don’t, doesn’t mean you need to follow in their footsteps.  Wearing a nice outfit will show you have respect for yourself!

Next time you’re asked on a date, remember we’ve all been there!  Keep these tips in mind and you should be just fine!

Good luck! – Chelsea
