So, you had your interview with us and joined It’s Just Lunch. Exciting! You heard about your matches and now you’re coordinated on your first date! Now what?
It’s ok to be nervous and have those first date butterflies. Take a look at our past blog posts; there is plenty of information here on dating tips, first date etiquette and some do’s and don’ts.
We came across this article on The Very Best First-Date Moves. We love doing our research on dating…remember, we’re the First Date Specialists! Our Top 2 office tips included:
Don't ignore the awkward moments
"The best first-date move that a guy ever used on me was when, at the second we were about to kiss for the first time, he said, 'On an awkwardness scale, how would you rate this moment?' It totally broke the ice and warmed us up to each other. I call this a 'conscious conversation,' where you openly acknowledge any uncomfortable moments that crop up. First dates are always anxiety-provoking on both sides, but when you can talk about that elephant in the room, it breaks the tension."

Ditch the three-day rule
"If you had a fantastic first date, call on the way home to say, 'Thanks for the great time' rather than waiting a few days. Tell your date that you know that you're breaking all the first-date rules, but you wanted to call anyway. This simple move shows you're not into playing head games, which will wow a first date."
