Going out for a milkshake and taking a drive down Sunset Boulevard was deemed acceptable in the 60s whereas now, women expect to be wined, dined and entertained by their dates before even considering a second meet up.Despite all the changes that we’ve seen in the world, one thing remains firm and steadfast: men absolutely have to practice chivalry for a date to go smoothly.There is a very fine line between the two, so be sure to watch your alcohol consumption.Limit yourself to a couple of glasses, and drink water in between.
Here are 12 things to take note of, if you are a woman out on a first date at a restaurant. The rule of thumb is to dress to impress, so be sure to put effort into your makeup, spruce up your hair, iron what needs to be ironed and accessorize well.She is no longer required to just smile and look pretty.Stimulating conversation, a sense of humor and inherent intellect are now expected from the modern woman.If you happen to be late through no fault of your own, be sure to be extremely apologetic and make it up to your date by being a charming dinner companion. If it’s a blind date, then perhaps a firm handshake and smile is in order.Even better than being right on time is arriving a little early. If he’s an acquaintance or a co-worker, a little hug or peck should suffice.
