If you’ve set your sights on a special person of interest, you’ll want to make the best impression possible. My clients often ask me how much the first impression actually affects the way a guy sees us and feels about us… and I can safely say that it does affect it a lot! Of course, you can (sometimes) fix a bad first impression, but we can all agree that it’s much better to make a good first impression than to hope he would give you another chance to try and fix the mistakes from a bad first date.
I like to tell my clients that you only get one first date, so you should make the most of it. You should try to choose the best date for your guy based on his sign. A Gemini man’s ideal date is nothing like the date a Capricorn man would choose. Luckily, I’ve prepared a list of the perfect dates for your love interest based on his sign… Take notes!
