Well, as you know, going on a first date can be very scary and
intimidating. Our minds are overcome with fear and insecurities
and we cave in to those emotions.
We're scared of being rejected, we're afraid of failure, we're
nervous about saying the wrong thing at the wrong time and we're
anxious about what our date will think of us.
All these anxieties are totally human and completely
understandable - but they produce devastating results: they
paralyze us and greatly inhibit our ability to behave normally
and confidently like we do with our family and with our closest
Our personal fears lead us to the most uncomfortable situation
where we feel a terrible lack of confidence, all stressed out,
angry and frustrated. The bottom line is that we're doomed to
end up in the most annoying, embarrassing and even humiliating
situation, which we all know as that "awkward silence".
Believe it or not, most of us do have the capacity to carry on a
fluid, easy-going and enjoyable conversation with people we have
known for years - so, with the right approach, it shouldn't be
any different with the woman we're on a first date with.
