How To Impress A first Date With Art Knowledge

nc efi placeholder

OK, first off, this is not a howto guide to becoming an art expert. It’s also not a howto guide to showing off about something that you know nothing about.

Seriously, if you know nothing about art, then don’t pretend that you do. You will get found out, and it will be pretty obvious and embarrassing.

If you don’t know anything about a subject, then please don’t try to pretend that you do. On the other hand, if you do know a little, or even a lot, then there are things that you can do to capitalize on that knowledge, especially when combined with some quality online dating opinions.

First Date Etiquette

Remember, it’s not all about you! But you’ll need to tread a fine line so, don’t forget that your partner will need to know something about you. Just don’t make it all about you!

After you’ve been to to find a great place for your first date, then you’re well on the way to making it a success.

Try to think what you’d like to talk about. Do your best to bring the conversation round to your interest in art only when it seems appropriate. Wait for cues like a pause, a silence and try to interject with something really interesting.

Talk About What You Know

If you have a particular interest in a specific area of art, then feel free to talk about this. Showcase your knowledge and see if your partner responds. Now is the time to find out if you’re going to be a good match together, and if they don’t share your interest then it might be best to find that out now rather than later.

You do need to impress your first date, so go ahead. JUst be careful not to sound like a showoff.

If you need to do a little research around your subject then so be it – go for it, but again, don’t pretend to know everything about a subject that you don’t know about.

Ask Your Partner

Don’t be afraid to ask your first date their opinion. After all art is all about opinions isn’t it? This way you can find out what they like and what interests them. You never know, you may find out that you both share a passion for the Impressionists or a love of modern art.

It’s all about showcasing your passion and finding out whether this passion is shared or appreciated by your partner.

Be Attentive

Remember to be attentive to your partner. Listen to them and try to judge their level of interest. You need to be on alert for signs that they aren’t interested in this subject so that you can change it up.

And lastly, but absolutely not least, if you really do love your art, and you want to impress your first date, then make the date at an art gallery. It’s a no brainer. You’ll get to talk about the things you love, and art galleries are super romantic.
