Some Tips on What To Do On Your First Date

Finally, it's the D-Day when you are going to possibly be able to change your relationship status from 'single' to 'in a relationship'. Your months of effort to muster up the courage to ask someone you like to go out on a date has finally sprung to life. You are going on your first date.

But now when you look at the scenario, planning your first date becomes nerve-wracking. Your heart is beating fast, guts are churning, and breathing seems irregular because you are excited, nervous and…deep inside...fearful!

You want your first date to be a perfect, memorable, and desirable experience. But you also don't know what you will do, how you will break the ice and what you will talk about. In short, you are on a roller coaster ride of all types of emotions!

To get you off that ride, and ease your wrecked nerves, I have some tips to make your first date the perfect affair. Here is your panacea:

Choose the Right Location

The first and foremost thing to consider is the first date location. Your selected location is going to play a huge role in setting the mood of your first date. A club might not work, because you will not be able to communicate properly, and you might waste your precious moments getting drunk. Another favorite of many first dates – movie night – is also a big 'no' for me. It is crowded, distracting, and not fun at all even if the movie is very funny. The key is to find a location where you can easily connect, stay at ease, and go without feeling awkward.

Prepare for the Conversation

The most difficult part of a first date is to break the ice and have an engaging conversation. Even the most outgoing people face difficulty in managing conversations on a first date. That's why you should prepare to kick start the conversations: research questions to ask a guy, decide how much you are going to reveal about yourself, and think of how you should respond to the possible questions.

Your conversation should be centred on bringing out the chemistry between the two of you, your likings and disliking, habits, etc. Don't try to be a comedian when you aren't humorous at all. And don't use cheesy lines and excessive compliments. And yes, don't sound desperate during the conversation – hold on to your senses and racing heart!

Focus on Your Presentation

The first thing that is going to hit the other person is neither your nature nor your conversation. It is your appearance and presentation that attracts the person at first. All the other things come later. So, pay special attention to your presentation. Don't pick an outfit that makes you appear desperate, and don't wear such casual clothing that you seem uninterested. Get a recommendation from a friend who has already gone through this phase, or go with your instinct if you think that your rational mode is not overpowered by excitement.

If you manage to score high in these three basic things, your date will go smoothly. Your nerve-wracking day could end up as the most memorable, happiest, and heart-warming day of your life. And you never know, this first date might turn into the beginning of a life-long relationship. Maybe this guy is your made-for-each-other deal!

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
