While he may have a cool and calm exterior, that by no means is a true reflection of how he feels on the inside. He may look like he is totally relaxed and at ease on his first date with her, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t stressing and over thinking all his fears and worst nightmares projected onto his first date.
He wants this date to run just as smoothly as you do, but what you may not have guessed is that he feels more pressure to please than you may. As a guy, he feels it’s his role to conduct the date and make sure everyone’s having a good time. On top of supplying the ideas, conversations, and fun, he also has to worry about the way he looks and what you are thinking of him from moment to moment. Don’t underestimate how much he cares, he’s more on edge than you may expect. We went around and asked several guys what their fears and anxieties are before and during their first date, and here’s what we found out.

Did you know that when you’re nervous, chances are your breath might be less than minty fresh? According to Wikipedia, when you’re stressed your mouth actually dries out the saliva causing less than cute bacteria to build up in your mouth and wrecking havoc on all those breath mints you’ve ingested. So if he’s stressed about your date, most likely he’s also stressed about his breath. Not to mention his high expectations for the end of the night where he has every intention of keeping his opportunities wide open. He might be more concerned about his breath than he’s giving off.
