To Gift or Not to Gift on a First Date

A first date is always going to be hard. It doesn’t matter if you met online or in person, because you are essentially two strangers who are going to meet in a definitely purposeful romantic setting. Normally when you have interest in someone you shower them with gifts and affection, but this is obviously not the same situation. You don’t want to come off as weird by bringing her a present, but also if you choose a good one she could be super impressed. Do the benefits outweigh the bad enough to risk it? The Pros The first date is sort of like an interview. You’re going to a meeting and you’re hoping to impress the other party enough to get invited back. In a business meeting you won’t bring a gift, but for the first date something like flowers is a nice touch. That’s still pretty mediocre though, lots of guys bring flowers. So while you’ll get an “aw” here or there from her friends, that’s about it. If you bring her something unique you’re showing that you’re not the type of guy who dates girls randomly. Otherwise you wouldn’t bother spending all of that money on them all. Unless you’re rich, then you can do whatever it is…
