6 Things to Look For on a First Date

6 Things to Look For on a First Date

Published by Programme B

If you’re on a first date with someone, there are five things you should keep an eye out for. These include the way they’re talking and their body language. Also, make sure you are listening carefully to their words. Do they seem interested in you? Do your interests and goals line up? And finally, are there any red flags?

How is the Conversation?

During the first date, you will have the opportunity to get to know the other person better and learn more about their interests. You can ask about their hobbies and favorite movies and television shows. You can also ask them about their favorite live performers or concerts. By asking about the interests of the other person, you can create interesting topics of conversation.

When talking to your date, be sure to listen carefully. They will have something interesting to share, so take note of what they have to say. Then, follow up with an appropriate question. Do not dominate the conversation; this will come across as rude. Make sure that the flow of the conversation is smooth.

Finding topics for conversation can be a challenge for some people. For one, many people are not used to talking to strangers or meeting someone face-to-face, which can add additional stress. For others, it can be difficult to start a conversation because they are too shy or unsure of what to say.

Experts say it is important to talk about topics like your values and interests. You can use humor and humility to make the conversation more relatable. However, some topics may be divisive, so try not to get too personal too early.

Does the Person Seem Attracted to You?

It’s normal to feel nervous and uneasy. If the other person seems to enjoy your company, the date is likely to be a success. This is the time to find out if you’re compatible, and whether or not they’ll be able to create a lasting connection with you.

Try to make your date feel comfortable around you. When you both feel comfortable, you can laugh and share personal details with one another. This is a good sign that you’re compatible. If you’re uncomfortable around the other person, she might be intimidated by you.

Keep an eye on the person and try to make eye contact with him or her. If you see the person distractedly looking back and forth, that’s a bad sign. This person is interested in you and wants to spend time with you. 

If you’re wondering if a person seems attracted to you on a first date, you should make sure to observe his body language. Check out the section on body language below for more info.

Do Your Goals and Interests Align?

Are you looking for the same things in a partner? This is an important question to ask yourself before going on a first date. If you’re looking for a traditional relationship, it’s probably not worth your time to go out with someone who is looking to find a sugar daddy.

It’s also important to make sure that you have the same interests. Otherwise, you might find yourself bored and unable to relate to the other person. If you’re both interested in music, for example, you might go to a concert together or share your favorite bands.

If you’re not sure what the other person is looking for, you can always ask. This is a great way to start a conversation and get to know the other person better.

Are There Any Red Flags?

When dating a new person, there are some things that are red flags. If the person doesn’t have core values or isn’t ready for a serious relationship, it’s probably not a good idea to go on a date. If you find the person you’re talking to is acting antisocially or making jokes that make you uncomfortable, this is a red flag. If they are avoiding questions, that’s another sign that they’re not ready for a relationship.

Another major red flag on a first date is when the person you’re talking to talks negatively about their ex. It shows a lack of maturity and openness. They may not even respect your boundaries or preferences. If they start trash-talking about their ex, they’re probably not over their ex. If the person you’re talking to constantly brings up their ex, you should move on.

Red flags include talking about yourself too much or asking personal questions. It’s best to give both people a chance to talk and listen. This doesn’t mean that you can’t ask the other person questions. Remember, the first date is an exploratory experience. If a person has a genuine interest in you, they’ll be eager to share their life with you and ask questions about you.

Look at Body Language

One of the most obvious ways to tell whether someone is interested in you is to watch their body language. People who are interested in you will lean toward you and angle their bodies. Conversely, if your partner is leaning away from you or angling his/her body away, you may not be a good match.

It’s important to make eye contact when you’re on a date because it shows you’re listening and interested. If your date is avoiding eye contact, it could mean he/she is shy or is not interested in you. You can also tell if your date is interested by watching how they hold their head and shoulders. It can also tell you if they’re nervous or shy.

When you’re on a first date, touch is a great way to show interest. While a hug might be too overbearing on a first date, a squeezed hand is also an indication of interest. If you’re sitting across the table from someone, keep your hands close to you. If you’re walking, try putting your hand on their back.

Are You Having Fun?

The most important thing to remember on a first date is to have fun. If you’re not having fun, then there’s no point in continuing the date. 

A good way to gauge if you’re having fun is to ask yourself how you feel when you’re around the other person. If you’re feeling nervous or uncomfortable, it’s probably not a good match. However, if you’re feeling excited and happy, then it’s worth pursuing.


A first date is a great way to get to know someone. Remember to be yourself, relax, and have fun. If you’re not sure if you’re compatible with the other person, it’s okay to ask questions. Remember to enjoy yourself. This is supposed to be fun!
