The Pressures on the Man Given this particular scenario, the pressure is usually on the guys so this section is more about addressing the issues a male is likely to face and the mistakes he might potentially make.That's not too say that girls can not make these errors too, so do not skip over this assuming it does not refer.Lets face it, first dates bring out the nerves in the most seasoned campaigners and I do not believe anyone is immune.

Believe it or not he will actually answer the phone if it rings in the middle of this all important first date.

Okay, there are exemptions to the rule, but only for emergencies.

There are some pretty obvious don'ts that really are not worth discussing in any detail so I will get them out of the way now. Being late on your first date is such a bad first impression.

In fact try and get to the venue a little earlier than was planned. Spend some time on your appearance and take a bit of pride in your presentation.

These guys actually do exist and from what the girls have told me there are plenty of them out there.

For some reason, they think it's attractive to go on and on about themselves, usually for the course of the entire date.

This character type is almost the exact opposite of "I'm Awesome Man" in that they will most likely ask too many HR type questions and come across like theirs in an interview for employment. Try not to get into too much detail on the first date, there's plenty of time for that later on down the track.

Turn Your Phone Off Another classic mistake is the one made by "Cell Phone Guy".

Do not be mistaken, it does not make you look cool or popular, it will come across as ignorant and impolite.
