Remember, She Feels the Same

She will take her cues from you.
If you’re nervous - she’ll pick up on it an be nervous too.
Take Some Deep Breaths
Just before you leave for the date, stop. Take some deep breaths and relax. If you are feeling very nervous, try clenching and unclenching your fists to release some energy. Take your time.
I do this one all the time. I dunno why - but it just works.

Laughter is a fantastic way of relieving tension and creating a relaxed atmosphere. So, as soon as you arrive, find something to laugh about. Even if it’s just a silly joke, it will break the ice and calm you both down.
I have a couple I always use.
Remember to be yourself. She must have seen something in you that appealed to her, or you wouldn’t have got the date. Too many people spend the first few dates portraying a persona that isn’t there own to impress. Then the relationship moves forward, they drop the persona and the relationship ends with them wondering what went wrong. Be yourself from the very start. If it works out, great. If it doesn’t, she’s not the one.
While confidence is sexy, arrogance isn’t. So, make sure you don’t try too hard. Remember to have some fun and enjoy yourself. Good luck!
