When I am having a date I usually do:
- first of all I take a shower, brush my teeth and shave;
- after that I get dressed, wear my perfume and leave home;
- before meeting I usually buy some flowers, so I need to have enough time to do it and I have to not to be late. (I have to come to there first.)

Very good job, you have written it as though you were speaking.

You could do it this way:-

When I am going on a date I usually do this:
- first of all I take a shower, brush my teeth and shave;
- after that I get dressed, put on my aftershave and ensure I smell nice. Then I leave home;
- before meeting her I usually buy some flowers, so I need to have enough time to do it and I have not to be late. (I have to come to there first.)

Here's another option:

To prepare for a date I usually shower, brush my teeth, and shave. After that, I get dressed, put on some cologne, and leave my house. I don't want to keep my date waiting, so I try to leave early enough to have time to buy some flowers.

Great, Alex!
