I’ve been on a lot of first dates, so I consider myself a bit of an expert on the subject. And even though I’ve written before about it, one bad first date gets me all fired up and wanting to write more. I won’t go into too much detail, but will say this: when a man shows up half an hour late, you’re definitely setting your date off on the wrong foot.
Think of this as your first date cheat sheet. These are super easy tips that don’t require much effort but that will be noticed and appreciated by any trans woman.
5 Tips to Impress a First Date
1. Have a Plan
You should plan a date with your lady’s interests in mind. Showing up with the “I don’t know, what do you want to do?” attitude is lazy and looked down upon. It doesn’t have to be a show-stopping plan, it just has to be there. Bowling anyone?
2. Be on Time
As I mentioned, tardiness is a sign that a man thinks his time is more valuable. Being late is very inconsiderate and will put you in a hole you’ll spend the rest of the date trying to crawl out of.
3. Compliment Her
Another easy breezy way to show your date that you’re noticing and listening is to compliment the t-girl. Don’t overdo it, but at least one reference to her appearance is cool, as is something about her abilities.
4. Ask Questions
There’s nothing worse than a man who sits with his date, talking about himself all night. When you focus on a woman, she will notice! This attentiveness is your pathway to a second date, and who knows, maybe a one night stand with a lovely transexual.
5. Pay the Tab
Whether you’re at a restaurant, bar, or club; pick up the bill. I don’t consider this old fashioned, just gentlemanly. After the first date, going dutch is fine; and if you don’t have a lot of money, plan an inexpensive date. Bowling anyone?
Those were the basics… here’s hoping you’ve got your’e own bag o’ tricks to use when impressing a first date. If you do, we’d love to hear a few in the comments!
