The first date is something that we look forward to and sort of dread all at the same time. You want to make a good first impression and you want to meet somebody who you have a chance to have a future with. It also would be good for you to go in with an open mind and a positive attitude.
Though the typical first dinner date seems like a great way to get to know each other, it can put a lot of unnecessary pressure on the whole situation.
The problem is that when you meet each other for dinner there are often drinks involved and that means that your inhibitions are down. There are expectations, various concerns, and you may feel that it is expected that you take things further than you are really ready for. What if you took all of that pressure out of things? What if you went in with an open mind and the perfect setting for really getting to talk to one another? It may be something as simple as switching up the meal that you share together. The answer lies in a nice breakfast date that you can both enjoy together!
No one ever thought about it but meeting for dinner actually has a lot of disadvantages. Firstly, you don’t have much time. Usually, you don’t go on a date before 6-7 pm. And if you want to spend some quality time with your date and, at the same time, come back home not too late, it’s not a very convenient idea. Another reason is that you don’t really know what kind of expectations your partner has. Does a late date mean that you are going to stay at his/her place for a night? There are no rules for those situations, so it may feel awkward for both of you.
The reality is that meeting for breakfast can make for an excellent first date backdrop. You get to really talk to one another and know if this is a match, without any outside pressure or the common dating situations that you are familiar with. If you aren’t great with the first date or if you want to really make things work this time around, then here are some valid reasons to consider meeting up for breakfast and really shaking things up in a positive way.
You are starting the day off fresh with one another
The new day brings hope and great expectations ahead. This is your opportunity to really go in fresh, without anything else happening in your day yet. Breakfast is when the day really begins and if you are doing it together then you are starting a day with one another. You can feel relaxed about it and really be yourself. This means that you have a much better chance at getting to know each other in a totally unique form. Simply switching up the meal you share can make a huge difference in the way things run.
There is no pressure or worry about what happens next on the date
What gives so many people anxiety about a dinner date is that there is an automatic expectation that you are going to be intimate or take things to the next level. That is not usually an assumption or even a consideration with a breakfast date. You are starting the day off with meeting each other, but you both likely have other things to do or other things planned. There is no outside pressure or worry as you would have on other dates, so it’s a great way to begin the relationship.
You can both be yourself without distractions or the pressure of the “typical” first date
If you tend to feel nervous and have so much pressure on you when it comes to the first dinner date, that’s not the case here. You can both be yourself and therefore you may find that you are truly a match. Probably you are meeting in a quiet place free of distractions, and that leads to a wonderful communication that can take you much further with the potential relationship.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and it may be the perfect setting for meeting up with one another. This is a great time to enjoy the first date and you can really get to know each other to see if there is a true love connection.
