To alleviate nervousness before a first date, it may help to consider that everything you experience is inside of you. You get to determine what everything means. If you go into the date feeling good about yourself, you will interpret the things he says and does as positive. If you feel insecure, your mind will be looking for evidence of why he is not interested. Either way, you can control your experience just by controlling your state of mind.
Before you go on your date, think of three adjectives that you want to project. For example, you can say “I’m going to be fun, intelligent and sincere.” State that to yourself right before the date and you will automatically exhibit those qualities. You get to decide how your date unfolds instead of leaving it up to fate.
