Imag­ine you’re sit­ting across the table from a hand­some mature man. It’s your first date and things are going well enough, but then all of a sud­den it strikes—the awk­ward silence. Now what?

If you’ve ever felt anx­ious about a first date, you’re def­i­nitely not the only one—going out with some­one new for the first time can be nerve-racking, to say the least. Regard­less of what side you’re on—the sugar daddy or the sugar baby—the pres­sure to make sure the date goes smoothly can feel over­whelm­ing. But it doesn’t have to be.

Here are a few sim­ple tips to help quell the awk­ward silence and make sure that your first date with a new sugar daddy is a success.

• Make the con­ver­sa­tion a two-way street. Nobody wants to spend the whole evening lis­ten­ing to their date talk inces­santly about them­selves. On the other hand, you don’t want the first date to be like an inter­view where you’re con­stantly answer­ing ques­tion after ques­tion about your­self. That’s why when you’re on a first date with a new sugar daddy there should be some back and forth in the con­ver­sa­tion. For instance, if your sugar daddy asks you a ques­tion, give your answer, but then direct the con­ver­sa­tion back to him.

• Know what to do with com­pli­ments. When some­one pays you an unex­pected com­pli­ment, you might be tempted to act mod­est and brush it off, which can make you come across as inse­cure and appre­hen­sive. Some­times it comes across bet­ter if you just accept the com­pli­ment rather than put your­self down. If your new sugar daddy tells you that you look nice in the dress you’re wear­ing, don’t tell him that you starved your­self to fit into it—just thank him with a smile. While on the topic of com­pli­ments, go easy on show­er­ing your date with praise. Once or twice is fine when the tim­ing is right, but com­pli­ment­ing your sugar daddy non-stop can sound like you’re fish­ing for a com­pli­ment your­self, or that you don’t think as highly of yourself.

• Don’t bring up past rela­tion­ships. This can be a huge buz­zkill on a first date with a new sugar daddy. Do you want to hear all about his ex-sugar baby? Prob­a­bly not, so show him the same con­sid­er­a­tion and avoid telling all about your ex-sugar daddy. If you find it hard to resist talk­ing about an old flame, that might be a good indi­ca­tion that you’re not quite ready to be back out in the dat­ing game again.

• Take your time. Get­ting to know each other is a process, so don’t try and learn every­thing about your new sugar daddy in one night, and only reveal as much infor­ma­tion about your­self as you’re com­fort­able doing. And remem­ber, a first date is not the time or place to vent or unleash your emo­tional bag­gage. Over­shar­ing can be a turnoff for some­one you just met. Just let the date unfold nat­u­rally. If the sugar daddy wants to know more about your extended fam­ily, he’ll ask. If the night is sup­posed to end with a kiss, then it will. But don’t force it.
