That means being kind and considerate and treating your date as you would like to be treated yourself.Being kind also means not lying or giving false hope.The key is to relax, enjoy yourself and not to analyse everything too much.
However, if your date asks you a direct question, such as, “Have you ever been married? The other person will feel flattered and special if you take the time to listen to them, ask them questions and draw them out.
I’m not suggesting that you don’t talk about yourself.
If you hate football don’t say that you can’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday afternoon, than cheering on Bristol City. If you’re not sure about someone, it may take two or three dates before you can really decide.
And if you work part-time in a call centre – don’t say you’re something big in communications. Try not to be too quick to judge or too fussy or rigid about what you are looking for in a potential partner.
Will I do or say the right thing or will I totally embarrass myself?
Will we get physical and if so, will there be any chemistry between us?
Will we have anything to talk about and if not, how will we get through the evening?
It is definitely possible to think too much about a first date.
Turn off your phone (or put it on silent if you are expecting an urgent call) and remember to say “thank you” if the other person is footing the bill.
