Going on a gig for your date is a great opportunity to share your love of music while enjoying some live music with a potential love interest, if you are nervous about your upcoming date then my first piece of advice would be to try and avoid this feeling. Although that is easier said than done, nerves can easily spiral into something more serious which could affect how well your date goes. While you are at the gig you should try and find out as much as you can about your date to show that you are interested in them as well as the music.
In this guide, I will be looking at ways you can help grow a connection with your date that has the potential to prosper and grow into something more serious. The game of love is not an easy one but if you are able to overcome your nerves and relax a little while you enjoy learning about this new person in your life, your date is likely to respond better to this than any uncomfortable silences or awkwardness. This is why a gig setting is a great choice as there is always something going on that you and your date can talk about if you lose track of the conversation.
When meeting any new person you want to make sure that your first impression is a good one as it is something that will be remembered. With dating, if you want to connect with your potential partner you should be warm and friendly, and maintain eye contact throughout your interactions. This will show that you are paying attention to how someone will react to you and that you actually care about wat your date has to say, although these may seem like common manners you will be surprised that not everyone knows this.
One of the main ways that you and your date will form a connection is through the conversations you have while you are spending time together on your date, in a gig setting this may not always be possible due to the music which is why you should make the most of each conversation opportunity. You need to be confident and clear while you are speaking to your date as well as be sure that you give them time to respond and are not controlling the entire conversation.
How To Keep The Conversation Going
If you are someone who is not the most confident when it comes to speaking on dates then here are a few tips to help you keep the conversation flowing allowing a connection to build. During any awkward moments, you could try asking your date a question, this will not only encourage them to open up about themselves, but it will also help to convey that you care about their life and that you want to know more about them. If you are feeling a little extra romantic you could turn it into a little game and play 21 questions to ask crush, this will make your romantic feelings clear and help build the connection between you and your date.
Showing An Interest
If you are serious about building a connection with your date at the gig then I would recommend maintaining eye contact within your conversations and making sure that you are showing an interest in their life. This is one of the best ways that you can make your feelings clear as well as to learn more and more about your date. The person you are dating is going to appreciate you a lot more if you are showing a keen interest in learning about them rather than just makiing the whole evening about yourself.
Continuing The Date
Finally, another way that you can continue to build your connection with your date is to continue the date elsewhere, even if you schedule a second date rather than going on to another venue at least you are securing the opportunity to see the person again. As gigs can also be quite difficult for communication to take place, going somewhere else after the date could be just what you need to continue your conversations and spend extra time with a potential love interest.
