It is easy to appear confident on the outside even if you don’t feel that way on the inside. Before you get to the date, take a look at your date’s profile to refresh your memory about their likes and dislikes. This will give you some great talking points. To alleviate nerves, try taking a deep breath before walking into the room.

This superpower will make you cool as a cucumber, totally unaffected by first date nerves and jitters. Your relaxed attitude would even help put your date at ease and make them feel comfortable in your presence. Totalcoolness would show off your warmth and sincerity which are highly desirable traits and should something embarrassing happen, your totalcoolness would mean you brush it off with style.
