Matthew Hussey: Do's and Don'ts for Your First Date

Posted by Christelyn, 10 Dec

Matthew's at it again with a few gems of advice to prep you before you go out on that date. Matthew suggests:

    Find your soulmate on InterracialDating.com

  • Don't take too long to get ready for a date. The longer you prep, the more nervous you get.
  • Get physical right from the start. Give your date a hug, a high-five, a touch on the shoulder.
  • Let him be the man. Let him feel needed and chivalrous.
  • Don't spend time worrying about awkward silences. Let the silence pass without worrying about filling the space up.
  • No complaining! No whining! Make a positive impression and don't moan about your life. Remember you're selling yourself!
  • Laugh through the date. It's a great way to break the tension. Guys like women that make them feel funny. He'll have more attraction for you.
  • Let every part of your personality shine through.
  • Don't talk about your ex! Even if he asks, he really doesn't want to know.
  • Make eye contact. When he's speaking, stare deeply into his eyes.
  • Make the date short and sweet. Leave him wanting more!
  • Most importantly, RELAX!

Matthew Hussey is a renowned dating expert and author. His latest dating book Get The Guy is a New York Times bestseller. He's the go-to relationship expert for Rachael Ray, Katie Couric, Ryan Seacrest, Meredith Vieira and many others. And he's a relationship columnist for Cosmopolitan magazine and the resident love expert for "The Today Show." Here he shares his proven strategies to get a man to do anything you want, from tirelessly pursuing you to treating you like a goddess to committing to you for life.
