TOP 10 LGBTQI+ First Date Tips

Just kidding about the ‘serial daters’ part! Most of our staff are in serious relationships and those who are not — are looking for love. Though, admit it, that subheading caught your attention!Let’s get a few things out the way before giving out free life-saving tips.- Taimi is not just for gay men (YES! Taimi is the FIRST LGBTQI+ inclusive dating and social network in the world)- Taimi is not just for dating! It is a social network that aims to connect LGBTQI+ people, to help them find and form relationships.- Taimi is all about love — granted if you’re looking for just a fling — more power to you but we are here to help our users find the one.

So, now that we have all the above in order here we go:#10. Figure Out What You WantYes, this is a tough one! But look at it this way — to find what you want, you have to know what it is first. So, get to know yourself, love yourself and decide whether you want to flirt, date or get married.#9. Look for Someone Who Is on the Same PageIf you’re out and proud but the person you’re attracted to isn’t ready to come out just yet (or perhaps wants to remain in the closet) it may cause strain on your relationship.
#8. Don’t Add Them on Social Media (without asking!)Evidently, you’ve met on Taimi where you share what you want with potential dates. Social media is full of photos, memories, even tender moments with your ex(es). Do you really want to share that right away?#7. Speaking of Exes….DON’T TALK ABOUT THEM!We know it may be tempting but you never know whom your future or past partner(s) might know (intimately too!)#6. Avoid Controversial TopicsLet’s face it — conversations about religion, politics and the latest news can go wrong really quickly. A world of advice — talk about general topics#5. Be Honest but Don’t Spill Your GutsPeople tend to adorn things when they want to be liked. Don’t start your relationship on the wrong foot. Listen and let your date talk about themselves too.#4. Don’t Undervalue YourselfLow self-esteem is never attractive. Sure, you want to have a partner that loves you with all your flaws but please, don’t expose them all at once.
#3. If You’re Nervous — Admit to ItYou don’t want them to get the wrong impression of you. They are likely just as nervous or excited or both. Admitting to having jitters can ease you both into a conversation and be an excellent ice-breaker.#2. Don’t Rush ThingsYou don’t want to appear needy, do you? Get through the first date — first. Live in the moment, allow yourself to enjoy your date and don’t cause yourself unnecessary stress.
#1. Ask QuestionsRemember, your conversations should flow. Get to know your date! Ask about their hobbies, preferences, interests before talking about yourself!Bonus Tip: We trust that your first date was so amazing that you now have a second date on lock.Since you’ve followed all our tips and your second date went just as well as the first and both of you are ready to take the next step… a word of advice — don’t forget about the all-important foreplay!After all, foreplay is one of the best ways to get the answers to all the questions you really wanted to ask.Hope you’ve enjoyed our tips, now go get TAIMI and find someone to go on a date with!
