Committed A First Date Faux Pas? Here's How To Recover

Wouldn't it be great if all first dates were perfect and flawless? Or, if they can't be perfect and flawless, wouldn't it be great if your date was the only one to screw up? Unfortunately, we are all guilty -- at one time or another, of committing a major first date faux pas. Glamour went to the experts to find out how to recover from three major first date mistakes: Faux Pas: You're way under dressed The fix: How were you to know that 'dinner' meant DINNER? Don't panic. If he comes to the door, "acknowledge the faux pas and quickly change your clothes,” says April Masini, relationship expert and author of Think and Date Like a Man. If you've met him and this isn't a possibility, just go with it. “Don’t get angry that he’s placed you in this situation and you’re going to look bad to others,” Masini says. “Instead, show him that you’re someone who rolls with the punches.” Faux Pas: You call him the wrong name The fix: This can be an honest mistake. Don't over think it. “Apologize and do some fancy footwork,” advises Masini. “Tell him that he reminds you of your cousin Dave, which is why you called him Dave. Tell him he has a free pass to call you Linda—and be glad you didn’t call him by the wrong name in bed!” Faux Pas: You run into his family -- or yours The Fix: Maybe you were brave and took him to a family wedding. Or maybe one of your mothers wanted to see the same movie. Awkward, but it doesn't have to be disaster. “If you introduce him as your date, you’re going to make yourself road kill for intrusive family questioning,” Masini warns. That's some sound advice!
