Just have fun. The first date is just about getting to know each other. Don’t put pressure on it.

How exciting! When I used to date I looked forward to getting ready. Id put on my music on speaker, sometimes have a drink (just one) by myself while doing makeup and hair, then had fun putting on clothing options. 

When you go out, its best to have absolutely no expectations. Look forward to meeting someone new, dont even think past the first date. That way there is no pressure and you can just relax.

He hasnt met you yet so its completely fine that he hasnt messaged you.  I would only expect him to after the date. That or you message him, either way. 🙂

Be yourself and have fun. If it’s meant to work it will work

Be who you are.

Focus on whether you like and feel comfortable with your date.  

Avoid putting a lot of energy into analyzing the date—pay attention to whether you like him, not the other way around.

Just have fun with it.  Keep an open mind and reframe it as getting to know some new people, rather than going on safari to hunt down the mythical creature, Mr Right, who doesn’t exist anyway.

Even if you don’t find true love on the first pass, you could end up making a new friend or two.  Nothing wrong with that.
