Vibe check your match’s profiles with your friends
Always, always! vibe check with friends, sure they can be picky but that's only because they know you deserve the best! We all know that sometimes we need our friends to take off those rose-tinted glasses that make us blind to potential red flags. On the other hand, our friends may just be the push we need to shoot our shot with that crush.

Shine bright like a diamond
When it comes to dating, first impressions count . Wear those boujee outfits you’ve been hiding away in your closet, yes that outfit! The one that makes you look chic, elegant, and everything you’ve ever dreamed of, the one that makes you feel like the main character. Also, it’s important to bring your best energy and enthusiasm to the occasion️. Lastly, don't forget to your profile so those matches know you ARE in fact - drop dead gorgeous. Pick the colours that’ll enhance your personality and confidence and go be your best, baddest self!
Pick an activity you both like to do
Meeting new people can be a bit awkward because you don’t know the other person really well. Indulge in activities you both like – playing Uno or Teen Patti , making cute DIY decorations or just go all out and dance with them like nobody’s watching. This will not only give you a chance to have some fun, but also to build a truly intimate connection with your date. So whether your vibe is a Diwali Mela or a Christmas Carnival - just having fun in each other's company always makes for a successful first date.
