6 songs to calm your first date jitters
You're *finally* going on a date with your crush—OMG. At first, you were super excited, but as the date gets closer and closer, you're really nervous. What if you say the wrong things? What if it's awkward? What if...what if...what if...
Instead of letting the thoughts of "what if" take over, listen to these songs to help you calm your nerves before your first date.
1. "Take Me" by Aly & AJ
Remember when you were impatiently waiting to find out about if your crush likes you back? This song is all about waiting for your crush to *finally* ask you out. But guess what? Your crush either already asked you out, or you already asked your crush out and your crush said "yes." You already know they're interested, so ditch the constant "does he like me back?" feelings and just enjoy yourself! (And those vampire vibes? Perf for Halloween!)
2. "Bravado" by Lorde
This song reminds you to be confident and proud of who you are. Even if your date doesn't go exactly how you hope it does, you're still awesome.
3. "Location" by Khalid
Sometimes it seems like it would be easier to just keep sending funny texts to your crush and talk to him in the hallway but not actually go on a date with him. A date can feel like so much pressure. This song reminds you of the value of IRL connections—sure, they can make you a little nervous, but they're more fun than exchanging texts all the time.
4. "Messy" by Fifth Harmony
In this song, the girls of Fifth Harmony remind you that it's OK to be imperfect. On your first date, you might say something awkward or feel a little jittery and that's totally fine. No one is perfect, so take a deep breath and embrace the fact that everyone is a little messy sometimes.
5. "Confident" by Demi Lovato
Let Demi remind you that being confident is totally cool. This song will get you pumped up and ready for your first date.
6. "Everything Has Changed" by Taylor Swift
This might be a throwback T-Swift hit but it's still so relevant for your first date. First dates might make you a little nervous but they can also be really sweet and fun. This song will remind you of all the joys and butterflies of a first date—focus on those.
