She agreed to go out with you. Now what?

The women of New York City are bold and beautiful, smart and stylish, and sophisticated and experienced. If you're about to take one of them out on a date for the first time, you'd better know how to treat her.

Contrary to popular belief, there are dos and don'ts of a first date. And knowing the proper way to treat a woman the first time you take her out has many benefits beyond landing a second date. Need some tips? Here is how to ace a first date in the Big Apple.

  • Enhance Your Image

Most women consider first dates very important. Even if it's at a casual location, it's still a formal event. For this reason, it's important to look your best and dress according to the tone of the restaurant or meeting place. But looking your best is easier said than done.

If you need a little assistance in this area, consider hiring a professional image consultant. The vital lessons you will learn from an image consultant can help you enhance your personal style and look your best.

  • Live in the Moment

Even if you look your best, a bad attitude can ruin your first date. Instead, live in the moment. How? Forget about what happened yesterday or even five minutes before you got to the date. Focus on things that will bring you two together instead of bad stories that might scare her away. Living in the moment also includes the way you look at her, the things you say, and how you say them. For example, what things can you say to show that you're focusing on the other person?
