One old-school dating rule still stands true today. "Let him be the man and take care of getting you to the place, handling the table, and ordering," Avary says.

"It lets a man know that you're willing to let him contribute to your well-being." Once you've soothed your nerves and find yourself seated across from your date, get your head out of the clouds and be realistic.

Dack says to be sensible on the first date when you're trying to make a connection.

You snagged a date with a potentially great guy, but now you're so nervous you can't sit still. Nerves and anxiety are a normal part of the process, according to relationship experts Kimi Avary and Rachel Dack.

Follow their dating etiquette advice to get your first date right. If you find yourself sliding into a free fall of jumbled nerves before that first date, this may very well be the most important piece of dating etiquette advice you'll get.

Avary suggests pampering yourself before heading out on that first date to eliminate jitters.

"Nurture yourself before the date by taking a hot bath and listening to music that inspires you," she says.

Ask questions, be inquisitive, and keep the conversation moving forward.
