Reading up on dating tips for shy guys can certainly help you make a good impression on your next date. And don’t forget that these dating tips are not just for the shy person going out for the first time. They can help you even if you’re experienced in dating, because it’s easy to forget the basics.
A good tip to remember is not to try to go overboard. She’s not going to expect you to take her to a restaurant that’s going to cost you $100 on your first date. And if she does expect that, you might be better off asking someone else out on a date.
She also shouldn’t expect you to take her on a date that is overly complicated. Keeping it simple is best, especially for first date.
Go for things that are fun and unusual and that will be memorable for her. Go to one of those pizza parlors with the characters in the video games that are usually thought of as being places for little kids. Go to the zoo and buy her cotton candy.
Amusement parks and carnivals are great places for dates. Everybody likes to be a kid now and then. So going to a place like this and riding rides let you be silly for a while.
Don’t forget to play the bottle toss of the ring toss and try to win her prize. Winning your girl a stuffed animal is something that will be great on a date for years to come.
Don’t see an overly serious movie on your first date. Going to see a very heavy show about an historical figure might not be great for first date. But don’t feel you have to go and see the latest, greatest “date movie.”
Choose a movie that’s more neutral than that for a first date. Go see the latest cartoon movie that’s popular for kids and have a silly time. It can be fun to laugh at the things you used to like as a little kid and you may find the movie’s really great anyway.
Choosing fun and quirky things like this can let her see that you just want to have a good time. It can help set her at ease and make her less nervous, which will in turn make you less nervous, too.
If it’s clear to her that you just really want to enjoy yourself, that’s going to impress her. If she can tell you’re not out to try to impress her with an expensive date or trying to be someone you’re not, she’ll notice.
Don’t forget to pay her a compliment, too. It can be easy to forget, especially if you’re nervous. But find something that you like whether it’s her perfume, her clothes or her sense of humor and say something nice about it. She’ll be able to relax because she’ll be less worried about impressing you.
Don’t forget these dating tips for shy guys next time you’re ready to ask someone out.
