The first date is an opportunity for you to sit down with someone and get to know them (we recommend spending an hour and half together) and see if there is enough interest and chemistry for a 2nd date. Simple, right?
It’s important to remember that it’s just a date…it’s supposed to be fun! Relax and enjoy the person sitting across the table from you and focus on the present…not if this person is “the one” in the future.
As the first date winds down, here are some things you should know and a few things you shouldn’t (save them for the upcoming dates).
You Should Know…
-If you have at least one thing in common
-If they asked you questions about yourself
-If they’re smart/funny/kind/confident
-If they seem genuinely interested in you
-If they’re employed
You Shouldn’t Know….
-How amazing their ex was
-Their religion or political beliefs (it can be a sensitive topic for a first date)
-How many other people they’re dating
