Of course, both of you have your own expectations of each other, how the other will dress, smell, how they look like, etc, etc,.
Having butterflies in the stomach is completely normal. In fact, if you don't feel even a sliver of anxiety, then it's time to reconsider because there might not be enough emotions to constitute even an idea to meet in person.
Here's a few tips to make your military single date a successful one:
1.Psyche yourself up. Remember that date your date likes you for who you are: just be yourself. Don't pretend to be someone you're not because when your date comes, he'd be expecting you and not that other person. Be realistic, he's not expecting to meet a superstar look-alike but rather, he'd be expecting that wonderful person he met online. Get psyched up before you go out on your date. Reflect on all the good things that both of you know about yourself. Don't worry too much and just stay relaxed. Don't worry too much for it will only cause stress which might influence the mood of your date.
2. Do not overdress. While you must "dress to impress", finding the "perfect" outfit might just be a tad bit hard. But one thing that you want to do on your first personal encounter is to make a good impression, and one way to do that is to dress up well. But what do you wear?
Consider the venue of your date. If you opt for lunch or coffee, a charming blouse and slacks paired with closed shoes should do great. But if you are going to a dinner date at a fancy restaurant, then you'd better dress up. Bring out that special little black dress of yours. A nice dress, not too short but not too long either, is perfect. Avoid those dresses that show too much skin, but also avoid those that cover too much skin.
3. Don't put on too much make-up or perfume. More likely, your date would want to see how you look like in person. Don't ruin your skin by putting too much foundation that it would your natural color; Don't overdo the eye shadow and mascara, just apply the right colors to compliment your eyes; Avoid putting on too much lipstick because you might end up sporting too much of a pout, like a bee had stung your lips. Tease his senses by just spraying an ample amount of perfume. It's advisable that you just spray on a small amount on your pulse points: a little below the ear and at the pulse points of your wrists.
4. Be on time. It's good manners to be prompt for a date. you'd know all about this already? I know that getting ready is tricky business, but do make sure that you are ready by the time he comes knocking on your door. There's a certain limit to making a man wait, you know.
