So, you’ve read the title and the profile and exchanged winks and emails. This seems like a very exciting guy and you think you are now ready to finally meet this single friend dating guy and see if you can take things to the next level. Well, there are a few things you need to put in place to make sure the date goes as planned.
Be safe, be safe, be safe.
Always meet in a public place. It can be a quiet place, but it has to be public and it has to be a place where you’re never alone. Especially since the first date. A cafe or restaurant is ideal. As sad as it is, people do practice deception. Always carry your phone with you and tell a trusted friend or family member where you’re going. If possible, have them call you at the scheduled time of your date with your friend, just to make sure you’re okay. Also, give them an idea of how long you think you’ll be gone. Ask for your transportation to and from your meeting place. Remember to call them, but if things go better than expected.
Have interesting topics of conversation.
So you have decided where to meet and tell family and friends that they are happy for you. Now, what are you talking about. Most people feel uncomfortable talking about themselves the less you want to seem selfish, but a little planning ahead can help prevent those awkward silences. It’s not hard to read the newspaper to refresh on the latest news.
Make sure you log on to SA to usually read it. You’re not trying to put on a show, and babbling about the Bank of England from exercising monetary policy when you’re not the slightest bit interested won’t do your budding adult dating relationship any good, because it’s not about what you are or what you will be. Things like family, hobbies, holidays or schools you’ve attended can spark conversations and you might even find you have mutual friends! Try to avoid potentially controversial topics like politics or religion until you know more and can make sure your point of view is not misunderstood.
Follow your instincts.
While it’s unfair to judge a book by its cover, after spending an evening with your date, you should have started to form an opinion if you want to see each other again, or if there’s no romantic spark, but you want to keep the date pen-pal friends. Try not to be too impressed, but to express exactly who you are. You don’t need him after all who fell in love with who he thinks you are. If she doesn’t give you the right feeling, then cut the date short and leave immediately. Don’t be shy, you don’t need to explain in detail why. Just politely offer your excuses and leave. Trust your gut and let it play a big part in your decision. It’s better to leave awkwardly now so that the situation will be bad later.
Meeting a new partner should be an exciting time, and as long as you have your wits about you and follow these tips to meet, you should have a time management to meet new and interesting people online.
