Mariel Hemingway(Actress, Author, Health & Wellness Expert)answered(10/4/2012)In my opinion, and the opinion of many guy friends i know, sleeping with someone on the first date is a bad idea because a guy will have zero respect for you. Unless you are just looking for a fling which is certainly your prerogative. If you are looking for a lasting relationship go slow and enjoy the flirtation and journey of getting to know someone.
My boyfriend just said don't eat garlic or pass gas (fart was his word) on the first date... do with that information what you will ... seems pretty obvious to me :D
Additionally, I think the worst thing you can do is pretend to be someone you aren't.
Just be yourself. Your future husband will love you for being you, so the better you are at just being you, the sooner he will find you.
Also, If you are looking for your one and only, you should understand that 99% of your dates will not be your perfect match. Don't try to make everyone into your husband...Here's an article I wrote on the subject http://tinybuddha.com/blog/5-ways-to-connect-in-your-relationships/
