Remember….

  1. You’re meeting a stranger.  Try to meet in a well-lit public place and tell someone close who you’re meeting and where. Also, let them know what time you expect to be home.
  2. Look your best, groom yourself and smell nice.
  3. Plan your outfit way ahead of time.  Don’t wear anything you will not be comfortable in.
  4. Don’t show up late.
  5. Don’t use your mobile device during the date.
  6. The other person is just as nervous as you are, so try not to be too stressed about it.
  7. Tell your date one thing good you noticed about them.
  8. Don’t talk too much. Make good eye contact, be attentive, don’t interrupt what the other person is saying and show an enthusiasm for what is being said. Everybody has an interesting story to tell.
  9. When asking questions….
    • Bear in mind that you’re meeting this person to see if you have a connection. Don’t treat it like a job interview.
    • Be flexible.  Let the conversation flow freely.
    • Don’t come across as arrogant such as you have better accomplishments or you’re a hot date.
    • Ask questions that will help you determine whether or not you will both be a good match.
    • Stay positive during your conversation. Don’t be Mr. Gloom And Doom.
  10. It’s the millennium, offer to split the tab unless she insists on paying.
  11. If you don’t see a future romantic relationship between you, don’t be vague and don’t give the other person hope when you know full well you’ll be ghosting them. You would not like it if you were on the receiving end.  Instead, be honest and diplomatic and say something like “I don’t think I will be seeing you again”.
