Below is a checklist. Enjoy!
1. Check your outfit
i. Check your fly- seriously. when I’m nervous I forget the simplest things like zipping myself up after I put on my pants. And I am always nervous before a date. If I’m not nervous…well, i rarely go on dates when the person doesn’t make me a little nervous.
ii. Check your collar- just make sure it’s the way you like it.
2. Check your image.
i. Nose hair
iv. Smell- I like HUGO BOSS cologne ($80 for a bottle)
3. Check yourself.
Why are you going on this date? To have fun? To get laid? To find your soulmate?
If you are reading my blog then your goal should always be to have fun and pursue happiness.
If you want to get laid on a first date, please leave my website. Nothing against sex, but I don’t share your mentality or life goals.
If you want to find your soulmate, you should use a matchmaking service. They usually do a pretty good job about finding someone who fits you.
4. Check time.
Make sure you show up early to get the scoop on the place. How long is the wait? How’s parking? Any activities there you could do after the date? What’s on the menu?
5. Check your insecurities.
We ALL have insecurities. If someone has it all, this person is likely to be very afraid of that inevitable end that all humanity shares. So relax.
Your insecurities do not make you who you are. It’s what you do. Maybe you’re not the tallest in the room. Maybe you’re not proud of your past or where you are in life now. Maybe you’re in want in something. We all have one insecurity that drives us to the other end of happiness. Be strong.
You are someone’s son. You are more than a job or a station in life. You are a professional athlete in your mind but a weekend warrior in truth. You are a musician. You like board games. You enjoy live music. You enjoy details. You enjoy art. You love animals. You once owned turtles. You once saw something awesome. You are a dreamer. You are realistic. You like rain. You like the sound of crashing waves. You like the smell of Fall over Summer. You like Halloween over Christmas because it’s more creative and less materialistic.
Know the ‘why’ to the above. If your answer is ‘just because’ then you need to dig deeper or create for yourself some deeper meaning.
Have fun. Enjoy yourself. You’re alive because your hearts beats. If nothing else then provide her with the blessing of being close to a living soul. If you’ve ever felt loneliness then you would understand the value of just being around a living being. Ready. Set…
