It is essential to show yourself for who you are.
If from the outset you show yourself to be transparent there will be consistency between the first impression and subsequent ones, the other person’s mind will then be quiet and without question marks.
You can do this through the clothes, make-up and attitudes you show in your encounter.
Choose a look that represents you, clothes that are well-groomed and in which you feel comfortable. The rest will take care of itself.
For any choice about your first date, choose simplicity.
From the way you dress, to where you will meet, to the behaviors you will have. A casual look in which you feel comfortable will be ideal for a first meeting to get to know each other.
Do not exaggerate looks and attitudes: it will only serve to cause awkwardness and create situations of little authenticity.
You will make an impression if you talk about yourself without necessarily self-aggrandizing.
No to the list of medals you have received or the compliments this or that have given you.
Stay anchored to the person you are and feel you are and not the roles you have.
Sometimes to impress at all costs you end up triggering the opposite effect: being boring and more interested in yourself than in the other person.
Given time, it will be better to show up over time.
Think less and feel more
At this point you have all the elements to impress.
These three simple ingredients will work if you allow yourself to be in touch with your feelings more than your thoughts.
For example, recognize the butterflies in your stomach, the beating heart, and the more or less present tension.
Never judge what you feel, just listen.
Try to think as little as possible about the future, look for the signals your body sends you and stay in the here and now by simply enjoying time together.
