It's your first date with a gorgeous woman and you'd really like to get the conversational ball rolling. If your heart is hammering away and you are anxious about making a good impression, relax!
Many men find the first date experience a little nerve-racking because they are worried about saying the wrong thing, coming off as boring, being tongue-tied, having the experience feel like a job interview or just putting their date off somehow.
It's not a difficult thing to break the ice and get a smooth conversation going with your date. The first thing you need to know to avoid being overwhelmed by first date jitters is that you are there to get a general idea of what this woman is like.
Getting to know her personality and a little bit about her life is the real goal here. Don't go rushing into your first date with the expectation of figuring out whether she is 'the one' for you.
Your only purpose at this point is to discover whether you both have enough compatibility and chemistry to even want to meet a second or third time. There'll be more dates in the future if you hit it off with her and if you don't, well, it's better to know that right away.
So all you want to do here is have an enjoyable time and get to know her a little. Instead of worrying about what she might be thinking of you, just be in the moment and approach the experience from the viewpoint of whether she is interesting enough for you to want to spend more time with.
