It’s understood – there’s no second chance to make an initial impression. Of course, it’s a lot of pressure to meet another person for the first time, especially if it’s during a blind date or someone you find attractive. Be less worried and more confident that you can make a fantastic first impression. Here’s what to do.
Prepare Talking Points
It’s uncommon for two strangers to meet and have an endless stream of conversation points. Rather than wait for those awkward pauses, be prepared with things to say. Even better, research the interests and hobbies of the other person ahead of time so you can ask questions. Be aware, however, of talking too much about yourself.
