First dates will forever be kind of awkward — there's just no way around it. You’re in that weird stage where you know you kind of like someone but you’re not positive they’re someone you want to get serious with. Enter: the first date. On the one hand, you really want them to like you back so you’re trying really hard to be the best version of yourself but on the other hand, you’re trying to get to know them on a level that’ll help you decide if you want a second date. And they're doing the exact same thing. That's like, the dictionary definition of “awkward” IMO.

But it doesn’t really have to be that way. When you’re so worried about the date going smoothly, you can’t get to know them very well and it's harder for them to get a solid read on you. Knowing how to make your first date NOT awkward AF can help you relax and decide if they’re right for you. You can also avoid self-sabotaging something great if you know how to avoid awkwardness. Here’s are 17 tips to making sure your first date won't suck — so you have the best chance at finding a solid connection.
