British sociologists interviewed more than 2000 people to know how much time they needed to make a judgment about the potential partner during the first date. It turned out that it takes only 12 minutes on average. 64% of the respondents judge by a smile; for 58% eye contact is also important; and 25% pay attention to the tone of voice. The most repulsive factor is bad body odor (59%), as well as bad breath from the mouth (53%).

It may be unpleasant, but 38% of the respondents begin to sweat from excitement on the first date, which drastically reduces their chances to make a good impression. A significant number of people make judgments about their potential partners without seeing them at least once. Thus, 20% find it enough to study the possible partner’s page on Facebook and Twitter.

25% decide to significantly change their appearance and smell to impress the partner on the first date. For women, the most popular procedures are a new haircut, manicure, and the use of a new perfume. Men will grow a “designer bristle.” 6% of women and 5% of men are also willing to keep to a diet to seem most seductive on the first date.

By the way, men are also more understanding because they are twice as likely as women to give their potential partners a chance to meet on the second date, if they have made ​​no impression on the first one.
