First dates are sometimes difficult to navigate.  You want to make a great first impression, while feeling nervous, trying to listen and trying to say the right things.

Here are five Do’s and Don’ts to consider on a first date:


  1. Do be on time
  2. Do dress appropriately for the activity
  3. Do make sure you have fresh breath
  4. Do listen when your date is answering a question
  5. Do have a good time


  1. Don’t brag about yourself
  2. Don’t bad-mouth your exes
  3. Don’t bring up your emotional baggage
  4. Don’t be rude to your date or wait staff
  5. Don’t lead a person on by saying you will call if you don’t plan to do so
