So, you’ve successfully invited someone over to your place for dinner. It’s a step in the right direction, and it has the potential to be either a memorable night or a relationship-killing embarrassment. A person’s home can reveal a lot about him or her. And while we put a lot of value on honesty and genuineness, sometimes, even when you’re really a cool person, you could overlook something that could ruin your night.
Consider the fact that there’s a lot of excitement and anxiety at the same time leading up to a date, and it’s going to be easy to forget a few things. This is where this article comes in — to ensure that you prepare for a perfect night instead of bracing for a disaster.
Deep Clean Your Home
While this should be obvious to most homeowners, I think we can all agree that we’ve all had dates that proved otherwise. Cleanliness (or lack thereof) is the first thing that your date is going to see. It’s here when the way you maintain your house can create an impression on your date. Things like rotten food in the fridge, urine streaks on the toilet, or just overall clutter will not portray you in the best light.
According to a home cleaning service in Leawood, deep cleaning can take a lot of time and energy. If you don’t have either of these in reserve, you might want to consider getting professional cleaners to do the job for you instead.
Dispose Of Anything From Past Relationships
We all know that the people we date have probably dated other people before. This is an uncomfortable but acceptable truth. However, I think we can all agree that finding evidence of someone’s past relationship in their home is a whole different story. This is not only a sure way to turn off your date, but it’s also going to be perceived as a sign that you haven’t completely moved on from your past relationship, even if you have.
Restock Your Fridge
An empty fridge can give off the impression that you’re either short on finances or that you’re a potential serial killer. It’s important to show your date that you’re prepared and well-stocked because this not only allows makes your fridge appear more respectable, it also opens a lot of possibilities. You can grab drinks, have snacks together while watching a movie, or even cook together.
You don’t necessarily have to go all out on this. Bottled water, some snacks and some beverages, like wine should be enough for your date.
Prepare Supplies For A “Sleepover”
Finally, it’s important to always be prepared for a “sleepover”. Adult readers already know what I’m talking about and it’s important to be able to account for this possibility. A few things you’re going to need are an extra towel, toothpaste, toothbrush, and possibly an extra set of comfy clothes for your date. Don’t forget to prepare other supplies like protection and lubrication as these things are important for safety and for pleasure.
A date night is a chance for both of you to get to know each other better. This can be either a good or bad thing, depending on how you maintain your home and how well-prepared you are for the date. It’s an opportunity to help deepen a relationship. You might as well prepare for it well.
