How long do you have to impress on your first date?

23 June 2015

You may have spent a long time getting ready for that 1st date but you only have 12 minutes to impress on a first date.

Potential partners are immediately judged on their smile, whether they make eye contact and the tone of their voice. Body odour and bad breath are definite turn offs, as is swearing.

Many potential partners are judged before the meeting even takes place, especially through social media.

Research showed that a quarter of singletons also make changes to their appearance to impress. A new haircut, perfume, manicure or even a diet are changes for women.

And for men? Its apparently growing some designer stubble.

It is the little things that you can do that may mean a lot on that first date!
