Hi, Kamey here from SBS! Since Being Single is a dating site for British Sikh, Hindu and Muslim singles, all dedicated to finding their life partner. It’s free to join, search and message!

I actually met my girlfriend through our site, and now the two of us run the company together! As part of our site, we offer advice and practical tools to help you find love faster.

Here’s my advice on how you can make a great first impression when you meet someone new!

There’s no question about it, first impressions count for a lot.

Whether you meet someone at one of our singles events, on a date, or in a business meeting, a good lasting first impression really does count.


There’s a few things that make a really good first impression, but if I had to choose the one most important thing for you, it would be what I’m about to share.

Most people think what you wear, or your job, or some other surface level thing is what creates a good first impression. I want to burst that myth right now.

I have been on dates with no job and attended high net-worth social evenings dressed in a hoody, and made amazing long lasting first impressions.

The secret to creating a great first impression is this: you must have MASSIVE impact.

Here are 3 Ways to Create Massive Impact And Make a Good Impression on the First Date:

1. Be so good they can’t ignore you

Be so good your date can’t get enough of you.

That means being a cool, interesting, creative, opinionated, knowledgeable, fun person your date will not forget. Let’s be honest, no one remembers a boring, dull, bland, average person. People say to me, “But Kam, that’s just not me…” Well good luck, let me know how you get on. Understand, there is way too much abundance in the dating world today. You must stand out. It’s really important.

People forget that this dating stuff, life, it’s not about you, it’s about other people. Once you understand this it will forever change the way you think about dating, love, and business. You must start to create and offer massive value to the world around you. That means asking yourself questions like “What do they need?” or “What can I help them with?” or “What can I offer them?” Allow yourself to get pulled into their world. Ask genuine questions and be curious about them.

3. Be the most interesting person in the room

When you walk into a room, are you the most interesting person there? When you are, trust me, people notice. They will turn around and say, “Who’s that guy, I need to speak to him”. I don’t mean to sound cocky, but this has happened to me so many times and I want it to happen to you too. Apply this principle to a first date. I want you to be the most interesting person they’ve ever been on a date with. Practically then, what makes you interesting?

I say this all the time, and I’m going carry on saying it: Knowledge.
