Self-confidence is the great human enabler. It prods a person to do things he or she has never done before and take risks. Without confidence, human society will not progress. We need self-confidence in every aspect our lives including our love life. Believing in yourself is not a talent; it’s a skill that can be developed through practice. 

One situation where self-confidence becomes a success factor is when you go out on a date, especially the first one.  Here are some quick tips on how to give your self-confidence the needed boost and impress your date.  

Be your best self

Nothing kills self-confidence more than knowing that you are not prepared for meeting new people.  When preparing for a date, make sure that you are perfectly groomed and appropriately dressed for the occasion.  Looking great will help give you the confidence to talk to people. This tip does not only apply to romantic dates, it is also a basic rule that you need to follow especially when applying for jobs.

Practice your conversational skills

As you may know, the fun in dating is really in the excitement of meeting and getting to know another person. On the first few dates, you will spend most of your time talking to each other.  Having good conversational and interpersonal skills gives you the confidence to express yourself. When talking with people, establish eye contact. Build good rapport by being genuinely interested in what the other person has to say. Ask questions and offer your insights.

If you are a shy person, practice conversing with people by starting with those whom you are comfortable with like your friends and relatives. Read books to widen your vocabulary. The more practice this skill, the more you’ll be able to hold engaging and exciting conversations.

Remember your proudest moments 

We all have those moments you feel you are on the top of the world—times when you have achieved something great and amazing. To build up your confidence, take those proud memories and put them on the forefront on your mind. Mediate on them. Relish the feeling of winning and embrace the positive things about yourself. If you feel failure, remember that this will not damage you as a person and you can always turn it into a learning experience.
