One way to reduce the chance of a good date is to turn up flustered, grouchy and wracked with guilt.
If you’re held up, apologise with dignity, deliver a winning smile and offer your date a drink.
The first date is all about enjoying the company of someone new and intriguing, so aim to avoid provoking political debates and stories about past relationships.
Dating should be fun, so try to keep the conversation light and upbeat with stories and questions.
And, for extra measure, make sure you tell at least one friend or family member who you are meeting, where you are going and what time you expect to return – just so they know.
While it’s essential to look the part, it’s equally as important to feel comfortable in what you’re wearing. Choose an outfit that both looks and feels great and you’ll exude confidence throughout your date.

Reading through past messages and picking out some things from their profile you’d like to know more about will help keep conversation flowing and allow you to be a happy confident date.
With a hot date on the cards, you won’t want to be dealing with a last minute wardrobe malfunctions.
