When your date arrives, greet her at the door with an inviting hug and kiss, grab her coat and see what she wants to drink. If your date arrives a little early include her while you finish up cooking so she doesn’t feel like a stranger.
Just give her something easy to do like opening a can, slicing bread or uncorking the wine. This Is also a good way to break the ice, set the mood for the night and who doesn’t enjoy a little natural conversation? No pressure just fun!
