Therefore, there’s no room for thoughtless slip-ups or uh-oh moments that could have been avoided with the right tricks up your sleeve and items in your pockets. 

When you plan a first date, you likely have some type of go-to routine you use to put yourself at ease and impress the lucky lady.

You’ve set the groundwork for a fantastic first encounter and all you need now is a few essentials to ensure the date goes as swimmingly as possible. Before you leave the house on your next first date, stop, and ensure you have the following first date essentials for men.
