Time goes by, humanity changes, blind dates have become increasingly popular, a person can meet a potential partner, a lover or find a friend there. Why does this happen? It is simple, communication in social networks and chats has led to the fact that most couples get acquainted on the Internet, that’s why almost everyone, at least once, has had a blind date.
Sometimes it can happen that people are so lost and begin to get nervous that they make a lot of mistakes on a blind date. A sad experience of a friend often plays its role, this thought is deeply sitting in the head, and the person is preconceived skeptically and incredulously, which leads straight to the fiasco.
A blind date is a kind of lottery, you can win a million in the face of a beautiful husband or a good friend, and you can waste your money and time in vain. Such a meeting should be perceived as an adventure. However, of course, together with all this, you need to prepare for a date, to follow certain rules, and then the adventure will be certainly successful:
1. BE FLEXIBLE IN YOUR EXPECTATIONS.
Remember that you do not yet know this person, and agreeing to go on dates does not mean that this will necessarily be the love of your entire life. Go on a date with the intention of having a good time and getting to know a person, rather than checking whether he is suitable for the role of your husband. This will allow you to relax, and the conversation will be better.
2. BUG YOUR MATCHMAKER.
Let your mutual friend give you the email address of your future dating partner. Write to him in a friendly tone. Do not ask for his phone number and do not offer to meet right away. Send several emails first. Then the man should be polite to ask if he can date you.
3. STANDING A DATE UP.
Do not forget to let the person know if you are late or you want to change the day of your date not at the last moment.
4. HAVE A NICE TIME.
It does not matter whether the person can become your future husband or not, just relax and try to enjoy your date.
5. DO NOT BE RUDE.
Just smile and finish your date if you do not like it. Inform the person that there is no connection between you, thank him and leave. It is best to come separately.
6. DO NOT WALK AWAY.
A blind date can pass in different ways, but, anyway, it is necessary to thank the person for the time spent. If everything is good, then exchange phones or arrange for the next meeting. If, on the contrary, you understand that this is your first and last meeting, then this should be said honestly, so that a person does not have empty illusions.
7. BE OPEN TO CONVERSATIONS.
It is necessary to prepare several common topics to begin a conversation, as it moves forward, it is necessary to ask questions, but not overdo it, it is impossible for a person to feel himself as during an interview. If it is difficult to find common topics, and before that you have never communicated even in a chat or a social network, the best solution is to go to the cinema or to the exhibition, there you will immediately find what to talk about.
8. DRESS SMART AND CASUAL.
Put on something that fits the situation: choose casual clothes for casual or active pastime, choose a dress for a formal date, like dinner in a restaurant.
9. DO NOT BE FAKE.
One more thing, do not forget to remain yourself, this is important. One of the most common mistakes is that a person wants to be better than he really is, he begins to invent fables and behave as he should not. If your communication continues, then you will have to open up, which can lead to disappointment.
10. DO NOT GET OVERLY SEXUAL.
Even if you have a long conversation on the Internet, do not rush to hug and to kiss your chevalier on the first date. It is possible that further communication will disappoint you. In this case, it will not be easy to explain your sudden coldness. The best option is to smile warmly at the meeting, and in the end, if everything is good, you can kiss your companion on the cheek.
11. THE PERFECT PLACE TO MEET.
Plan short meetings in crowded places. It could be a restaurant, a coffee shop or a park. Public places have their advantages, and if the date is annoying, you will have an exit.
12. BE CAUTIOUS.
Often because of nerves, we can talk a lot too much. Try to restrain yourself. Of course, you should not be silent, but it is useless to talk too much. Observe a reasonable balance: give the person just enough information to interest and intrigue him, encourage him to ask you some questions.
13. SPEAK YOUR MIND AT THE END OF THE DATE.
Make a decision about the next meeting. If you really do not feel attracted, it is better to politely refuse. Since your mutual friend is involved, do not postpone the decision for later, so as not to cause problems.
