You'll need to choose the right spot to avoid boring dates and instead, choose a dating site where you can have a meaningful conversation. If she seems more reserved or shy, a great date idea can be a coffee date rather than a dinner spot for a dinner date, as it can be an intimidating place to meet someone.


If she likes to have fun, take her to an arcade for a unique date that will definitely win you bonus points. You won't be able to have a good date conversation at a loud and overcrowded bar which is why it's essential you choose the right spot to create a fun atmosphere.

A day before the date, follow up with her on the dating app to make sure that your plans are still on. This is essential first date etiquette, as plans can change and it's important to keep the plan in place. Make the first date an easy experience by planning it to perfection and letting her know you're still on for the date.


She'll be much less likely to cancel the plans or be a no-show if she knows ahead of time that the date is still on.

How you show up for the first Hinge date can make or break the night, so don't forget to dress to impress. Groom yourself and put in some time and effort into your appearance. You want to make a good impression and get yourself a second date by looking your best when you meet her.


Make sure that what you wear matches the setting of the date, as you won't want to show up in a fancy outfit if you're just stepping out for a casual coffee date. Looking attractive is a key step in creating a sexual attraction between you and your date. By looking put together, you'll give off a confident vibe that she'll be instantly drawn to.

First dates spent talking solely about yourself the entire time never end well and if you want a second date, you'll need to show interest in her. Date conversation topics should focus on her and her interests, as this will make her feel comfortable, appreciated, and interested in. You also throw some funny jokes to make her laugh.


Ask her about her work, some of her hobbies, goals, and passions that she has. You can even ask her about her family, friends, and travel plans. This way, you'll be able to bond over a mutual interest and show you're interested in an other person's interests apart from your own.

You don't want to spend your entire date trying to impress her by being someone you're not. Eventually, your date will catch on and will only be left disappointed that you projected a false image to her of someone you're not.


Be yourself and be open to telling your date more about who you are as a person. One thing to remember is to avoid getting too comfortable. To land a second date, you should be confident, charming, and honest enough for her to feel comfortable in spending time with you.

One thing you should never do is bring up your ex or past relationships on a first date. Talk about mutual interests and use fun conversation starters to spark conversation that's not focused on past love interests. Keep things light and fun on the first date, as talking about your ex will only make your date feel uncomfortable.


Your date won't want to hear about your ex just yet, and you probably don't want to hear about her past relationships either. Stick to fun topics like your date's interests, hobbies, and family instead.
