Tip on blind dating
This should go without saying, but unfortunately, some people do not respect others on a blind date.
Take into consideration the other person’s schedule and time by being nice even if you aren’t satisfied with the date.
Going on a blind date doesn’t equate to the scent of sexual desperation and vice versa with your date.
Don’t expect the date to be nothing more than a sexual encounter or you may miss out on a wonderful opportunity to get to know someone—possibly your future partner.
Over time, the more blind dates I went on, I learned to relax and let these dates be what they were supposed to be: a chance to connect with someone I don’t know yet.
As I learned to take the pressure out of blind dates, I actually started to enjoy them (whether they led to a relationship or not).
I believe blind dates are still a great way to meet your future spouse.
However, while it is important to exercise caution in all types of dating it's even more important in blind dating. This isn’t an arranged marriage; you’ll have second and third dates to share more. A glass of wine is fine, but try to get to know each other sober. First impressions matter, yes, but so does comfort. Pick an outfit that makes you feel great, look great, doesn’t reveal too much and is age-appropriate. But while you’re on the date, show off your social etiquette skills.) 4. Your friends and Twitter followers are not invited on the date. You’ll have plenty of time in the future to figure out gender-role stuff if you develop a relationship. Show up on time, be polite to the waitstaff, and give your date your undivided attention. If you don’t hit it off, you don’t have to date him again. Don’t play games.) Remember that he’s likely nervous and is trying to figure out first-date rules, too.
