Shay Mitchell is often busy traveling the world, making YouTube videos and trying to hunt down A in Pretty Little Liars. In-between her hectic schedule, we had the chance to chat with her about one thing everyone has to deal with at one time or another: going on a first date! It can be totally nerve-racking, but also so much fun, and Shay has the best advice when it comes to making sure your date is perfect. It all comes down to just being yourself!
"Always be yourself and honestly that means even dressing like yourself," Shay dished to TWIST. "Don't wear something that your're uncomfortable in because that's all you're doing to be thinking about when you go on the date. And don't wear too much makeup! Just enhance your natural beauty and let the person you're with see you for who you really are and not somebody you're trying to be."
Wearing something you love and letting your inner beauty shine isn't all that hard to do! Shay feels it's the best way for the person you're hanging out with to get to know you in the way you want them to.
"When you're just being yourself, you're more relaxed, more comfortable and then you can be that person you want to be," she added. "That's always my advice to anyone who is going on any date. Just have fun with it." Solid advice right there! We kind of think she should add motivational relationship guru to her long list of things she's amazing at.
