How To Calm Nerves For A Blind Date
Blind dates can be fun but also nerve wracking. It is normal to fear the unknown and the build up to a date with someone you have never met will surly put butterflies in your stomach. So if you want the secret to keeping your cool then check out these tips on how to calm nerves for a blind date.
1. Spend The Day With Friends
Creating a relaxing and easygoing atmosphere early in the day can set the tone for a relaxing and easygoing date in the evening. Go shopping, see a movie, eat lunch with your friends or just do something you love. A fun-filled day will leave you in a positive mood and give you plenty to talk about on your blind date. Plus, if you wear an outfit that can easily go from day to night, you won’t have to rush home and change your outfit 50 times.
Before you slip on that hot outfit, work out! Exercise releases endorphins that will make you feel happy and confident. You don’t have to hit the gym or a high-cardio Zumba class; it’s enough to dance to music around your house. If you time your workout well, you’ll still have a glow from your improved blood flow when you show up on your date.
3. Think Positive
When trying to lose weight, experts tell their clients to picture a thinner version of themselves for added confidence and motivation. Why not try this for calming your pre-blind date jitters? Take a warm bath or sit in your living room while meditating on what you hope your date will look like and how the evening will go. By visualizing your evening as pleasant, you’ll stay in that positive mindset.
4. Be Fashionably Late
If you still feel nervous after trying the steps above, arrive at your date a bit late. This way you can scope out the venue and get a chance to see your potential mate before they see you. Just don’t stand your date up. If you really have to leave, be sure that you’ve at least spent some time getting to know them first.
