1. Layering & Get Glam
If you’re not the layering type, then definitely wear what makes you most comfortable. If you are into layeringing though, we recommend going all out. Wear what you would wear if you were really going out, complete with rings and. Don’t be afraid to bust out the cleavage and glam makeup either!

2. Prepare Conversation Topics
This may seem totally unromantic, but what’s more awkward than long stretches of silence during a Zoom? Eeek! It’s not a good look, babe. Having some icebreakers
and conversation topics ready (yes, you can even write them down) can keep the conversation flowing and help you get to know the person beyond short text messages. You can also see if you have chemistry or if it feels like pulling teeth to get a word out of your date. This could actually really let you know if this person is worthy of a second date!
3. Watch A Show Or Movie Together
Netflix and chill just got a whole new vibe. Watching an hour-long show you both agreed on, or picking an exciting movie can be so much fun. You can discuss the movie as you watch it (which is something you couldn’t really do in a traditional theater), and see if you have similar taste in entertainment. This is definitely another great way to get to know your date.
