6 Ways To Ace A Gay First Date

So you got his name, got his number, had a few conversations via phone and text and there’s some talk about going the two of you going on a date. You are excited about getting some face time, but also nervous because you are not sure of how things will turn out. Where to go and what should you do? Will you guys hit it off or will the evening be riddled with awkward silence? Will you still find each other attractive upon second look? Will this be your first and last gay date you have with this person?

Dating is hard enough but when you add the pressure of trying to create an awesome gay first date, you could very well sabotage yourself before you even get started.

Luckily for you, I’m going to let you in on a few tricks that will not only take the edge off of planning your gay first date, but also increase your chances of scoring a second and quite possibly a third.

Here are 6 of my best tips on how to make sure your gay first date is not your last.

1. Get Your Expectations In Check

The best way to ensure you leave your date disappointed is to go into it having the wrong expectations. Sure you want to find a boyfriend but your number one goal for this first date, is to get to know this person and see if there is fluid chemistry. Go in, have a good time and use that as your basis on whether or not there is an opportunity for it to become something more.

2. No Dinner Or Movie First Dates

Both of these defeat the purpose of a first date because they interrupt the flow of conversation. If you do a dinner date, there will be a period of silence because it’s rude to talk with your mouth full. Same for movies, there is at least 90 minutes where you will not be speaking with each other. Any type of silence during a first date will be awkward so try to avoid it at all costs.
