Kelleher Los Angeles matches successful singles with like-minded people to help create the ultimate date experience, but the date itself relies on your own wit and charm. The goal is to entice your date and provide an open platform for communication, understanding and an enjoyable time for both of you. This is time to use all the manners your mother taught you: “please,” “thank you,” and “how do you do” go a long way when you are trying to make a good first impression. While basic etiquette is a must, there are additional ways to create an unforgettable experience for your date and leave them craving another meeting.

Bring your A-Game. People notice when you’re at your best. Get plenty of sleep the night before your date, make sure you have directions printed ahead of time, and leave ten to fifteen minutes early because – let’s face it – L.A. traffic has trapped us all at some point. Don’t try to squeeze a date in between meetings or right before boys’ night out. Set yourself up for success: assume the date will go well and that you will want to spend a reasonable amount of time together.

Bring a single flower – but not a rose! A dozen red roses on the first date screams “cliché and clingy.” A single flower of another type, however, indicates you put thought into a meaningful gesture and considered your date’s preferences (if any). Many flowers come with historical or cultural symbolism. See if your florist can suggest a type of flower based on the message you would like to convey.

Go somewhere new. Did you know Starbucks is the number one spot in the U.S. for first dates? Maybe not, but your date probably could have guessed, as it is likely they have been to every coffee house within a ten mile radius. Luckily for them, you are a unique individual with a creative mind. You are going to schedule something different so, regardless of conversation, your date will come away with an exciting story to tell. First date ideas in L.A. include:

  • Rosie’s Dog Beach – Bring out the pet lover in both of you! Dog people are happy people.
  • Vintage bowling at The Spare Room – Show your fun side with this classy bowling experience!
  • Musical theater at DBA – Bottle service and a live show make this date ideal.
  • Food tour – Why go to one restaurant when you can go to six?
  • The Staples Center – Everything from sports to concerts in one place.

Talk values. Our experienced Kelleher Los Angeles matchmakers personally pair you with another compatible single. We use no equations or algorithms – love is a very human experience and only another human can accurately compare the minutest details of your life to select the perfect date. These factors alone mean you are probably on a date with someone who has similar views on religion, politics, and lifestyles. If your date seems open to it, it’s okay to touch on these things during the first date.

Go for the kiss. If your date went well (and if you’re comfortable with each other), make eye contact, move in, and go for it! You could be met with the cheek, or your date could be extremely impressed that you’re the kind of person who knows what he or she wants out of life. We’re rooting for the latter.

The simple fact that you’re on a date with another single indicates they haven’t found that special person yet, either. You could read this a number of ways, but we believe this is an opportunity to stand out above the crowd. Your choice of first date says a lot about your personality, interests and expectations for the relationship in the future. That’s a lot of pressure for a first meeting, but with enough suave, you can pull off a first impression to remember. In the end, your personality should be the stand-out factor. Can’t wait to get started? Request an appointment with a matchmaker today and embark on the biggest adventure of your life!
