Any first date is loaded with pressure. Should you order the garden salad or opt for a cup of the pungent french onion soup? Do you go in for a kiss, or end with a hug? You never quite know how to make things progress 100 percent smoothly, but you can do your best to ensure the date is survivable. We’ve thrown together our top five suggestions to ensure your potential Sugar Baby (or Daddy) see’s the light of a second date.
DO Tell him if there’s lettuce in his teeth/ lipstick on her teeth
Everyone holds the potential of one shot for a first impression. No one wants to ever feel like they appear messy or disheveled. Sugar Daddy’s, please let your Sugar Baby know if there’s a little something in —or on, her teeth. It’s way less embarrassing to make the comment rather than to let her continue smiling broadly with a not-so-presentable grill. We all hate pointing out an awkward flaw but if you’re honest from the start, that’s a great way to build trust with each other. Sugar Babies, if you notice your Sugar Daddy has a friendly reminder of your first course salad, be a doll and let your guy know. This demonstrates maturity and honesty.
DON’T Go over your limit
The first dinner date is not the time to drink and party like you did in college. This is a meal that is to be shared between two mature adults. Sugar Babies, remain aware of your alcohol intake. If your Daddy orders a bottle of wine, try sticking to two glasses tops. Sugar Daddies, avoid any behaviors that could incite an argument if you clearly see that your date is getting a bit tipsy. Do not keep the drinks coming if your date is an obvious lightweight. Be respectful, order a cab for her, and reconnect when she’s back to her usual self. The last thing either party should want to do is say or do anything that could prevent a good thing from happening before it’s even started.
DO Go for a mid-price selection
Pay attention Sugar Babies. The first meal can tell a lot about you. The wine you opt for, the main course you prefer, etc. If you find that what you desire eating is on the lower rung of the pricing tier, I’m sure your Sugar Daddy will not mind this. Actually, he may pull a “Is that all you’re having?” as a hint to order something more filling. If you’re a Sugar Baby who has no shame in her food selection game, try sticking to something mid-range in price point. The meal is meant to compliment the date activity, not interrupt the flow of what’s happening. Realistically you are determining if the Sugar Daddy seated across from you can offer what you’re interested in for an arrangement. Don’t forget – the Sugar Daddy is measuring you up as well to see if you’re worth his investment.
DON’T Engage in Digital Dysfunction
There is nothing worse than a date that’s interrupted by the distraction of a phone call. Daddies, it only takes one phone call from your assistant to press your buttons and totally change the mood of the date. Your Sugar Baby should be your focus of the evening. She’s likely been looking forward to meeting with you all day and you couldn’t imagine the disappointment of finding your 1.5 hour date shrinks down to twenty-minutes of real interaction. Until the parameters of your arrangement have been agreed upon, you’ll want to make sure that any and every chance you have to keep digital distractions to a minimum are executed. Sugar Babies, this also includes being so drawn to what’s happening on Facebook that you forget that a potential well-heeled Sugar Daddy is seated right in front of you.
DO End With A “Thank You”
Mind your manners and never forget to thank your Sugar Daddy (or Mommy) after a date. They carved time from their busy schedule to spend time with you. The least you can do is express your appreciation. If the date becomes a monthly ritual including the exchange of your monthly allowance, you definitely want to avoid neglecting this action. Make a habit of it now. Sugar Daddies, if you find the lady you’ve just spent the evening with was an absolute delight, thank her for her time and inquire about a follow-up date to let her know that you’re interested and would like to share time again. If you find your potential Sugar Baby was less than ideal, be a gentleman. Walk her to her car and part ways knowing you’ve treated her as any respectable gentleman would.
