A first date can be a nerve wrecking experience specially in cases of arranged marriage scenarios where it can be a blind date on top of being a first date. The questions on top of every girls mind is a > where to meet ( in-case the guy asks preference ) and b > what to wear.
Where to Meet ( Options )
1> Coffee shop of a Good Hotel : They will not be as crowded as the local CCD’s / Barista’s / Mochas, while providing the safety of meeting in public place . Coffee shops are always a good option as you can extend / limit the time of meeting on the basis of how the date progresses.
2> Brunch Date : Will allow you to linger and chat over food in a relaxed atmosphere , which is more intimate than coffee shop date. Try this if you have liked the guy during your previous on – phone talks
3> Mall – Avoid on weekends and rush hours. Large malls like Inorbit & Highstreet Phoenix in Mumbai , Amanora in Pune , Ambience Mall in Delhi etc provide food as well as activity options.
Just ensure that first date is not in secluded place ( obvious for security reasons ) , someone knows where you are going , is not a very expensive place.
What to Wear
1 > Indian / Western – Wear what you normally wear. If you normally wear only Jeans , wear a pair with dressy feminine top , if you are comfortable in Indian wear , a nice Kurta with leggings / tights / salwar is appropriate. If you normally wear dresses , wear it – just ensure that length is not too short , and you are not showing too much skin at top.
2> Dress Nice not Sexy – Its the first date and you do not want to give the wrong impression. Do not show too much skin.
3> Wear a girly color that flatters you : For fair girls with blue undertones – Pink is great option , while if you are wheatish , peach / coral will make you glow. If you want to dress up slim in black , try accessorizing it with Red.
4 > Natural Glow – Makeup should be natural. Hide your imperfections , put on some peach blush , a nice lipgloss , and clear mascara . Guys do not like heavily madeup girls.
