5 Easy Ways To Boost Your Dating Confidence

Hollywood glamorises first dates. It's always the love-at-first-sight trope, rose petals and a tear-jerking love song playing as the credits roll. In reality, though, dating isn't that simple and straightforward, so you've got to prepare. Here are 5 easy ways to boost your dating confidence:

1. Get Closure

There is absolutely no point in dipping your toe in the dating pool if you're still hung up on your previous relationship. To move on, you need to close that chapter of the past and prepare yourself for new beginnings.

2. Believe in Yourself

Confidence starts with self-trust. Make peace with the nuances of your personality and the quirks that make you unique. Fall in love with yourself first. Then take the next step by introducing your best self to the dating world. If you don't love yourself, how do you love someone else?

3. Don’t Overcomplicate the Date

Try to keep the first date short and simple. You don't need an extravagant dinner, a hot air balloon ride and a mariachi band. Simplify the date - meet up at a central location for a cup of coffee and take it from there. If things go well, the coffee date could turn into a lunch or dinner.

4. Prepare First Date Topics

Go in prepared. Just remember that it isn't a job interview. Ask open-ended questions, listen carefully and guide the conversation. To put your mind at ease, prepare date topics and questions that you can whip out whenever you need an interesting segue.

5. Create a Confident First Impression

Make a positive first impression by striding towards your date with a genuine smile. By smiling more, you project confidence and some of that positivity onto those around you. It sets the 'good vibes only' tone for your first official date.

Don’t forget to brush your teeth with Closeup toothpaste so you can have long lasting fresh breath  as you flash that million dollar smile of yours!
