Welcome from the Green Screen TV Team! My name is Jonathan, and I am going to share with you an idea for our TV pilot for the upcoming reality show on first dates!
First dates are often nerve wrecking especially if two people have little information about each other.
This means that you may not know what your first impression is about each other. First impressions may be positive but on the other end, can be negative. This is the very reason why we give great importance to first impressions.
They say that first impression lasts so you might as well stick to this principle. According to a LoveFAQ it takes only minutes for a girl to determine if she likes you or not, so make sure that your first date counts. A first impression may be dependent on the nature and flow of your first date and how you handle it with ease and confidence. Here are some tips on how to leave a good impression to your potential lifetime partner on your first date… courtesy of our brainstorming session here at Green Screen HQ 😉
- Tip no. 1: Always make a good choice of words. Sometimes, it can’t be helped to leave an opinion about things or about your date. These opinions can already be one factor that can formulate a first impression. For example, if you find the dating place a little quiet and a bit lacking of romantic ambiance or in short, not your type of place, you have to honestly say it to your date. It should be honest and straightforward but not in a way that can hurt his or her feelings. It would also be better to ask your date first about what he or she thinks about the place. If you both have the same opinion, then you can be safe to suggest a better place. Do not immediately suggest another place as this may already mark a negative impression. It might mean that you are too choosy and might reflect a personality that could possibly be difficult to deal with. Again, ask first and look for hints of similar opinion before you proceed to your next possible options. There are other situations that call for a good choice of words. You may find it a little difficult at first since it makes you a little conscious about yourself and about your date’s first impression about you. At this point, maybe it can help to always remind yourself to relax.
- Tip No. 2: Always have positive vibes. Since it is your first date, always provide a bigger space for positivity and as much as possible do not allow negative vibes to ruin your date. In other words, do not let a few negligible mistakes affect the way you look into your date. For example, if he or she says something you don’t like, just let it pass at first. Do not immediately jump into a conclusion of having a negative impression about that person. Maybe he or she does not practice the good-choice-of-words principle so you just have to understand. Trying to leave a good first impression is not that easy and it may end up on the opposite end. The best way to leave a positive impression is to always have positive vibes.
Finally, do not expect anything from your date. Remember, experience is the best teacher so leave things as learning experiences– both good, or bad. Just don’t settle for anything less or lower your standards just to be happy. If your first date is a success, that’s a good start. If not, as long as you follow these tips, the problem is not you at all.
