Blind dating etiquette

It is supposed to be an exciting way to meet new people to hang out with, or even end up on a relationship with.

If he ever does this, it means that he would most likely disrespect you as well. Although men are dictated by etiquette to pay for the first date, the women should at least offer to pay for their share of the meal. Once you notice that your date is either rude or even making fun at you, end your date as soon as possible. This is a good indicator on how your date treats other people, including you (even if he appears to be nice towards you). If your date is drinking excessively during your first date, it is most likely that he or she would do it more often and could even destroy your relationship. Ending the date How to end your blind date depends if it is a success or a failure.

If you meet your date at his or her house, take him or her home. If you meet your date at a public place, volunteer to take him or her home.

If your date declines, offer to hitch a cab for your date. Tell you date that you want to see him or her again.

A good indicator of a successful blind date is if the woman offers her phone number to her date. How you do it depends on the situation, although it is best for the man to “feel” if the woman “expects” to be kissed.

However, if your date seems to be working, just “scrap” the plan and stay on with your date. However, stop complimenting once your date feels uneasy about it (but that rarely happens). Ask your date if he or she likes to watch movies (or TV, music) and know his or her favorites. If there aren’t any common favorites, just say what you like. Stimulate the conversation by asking questions that do not end up with a “yes” or “no” for an answer.

Be yourself One of the biggest mistakes that people make on a blind date is that they try to be someone that they aren’t. Answer questions honestly and talk about yourself without exaggerating facts. For instance, if your date revealed that he or she is into tech gadgets, ask what would be his or her dream gadget to own. The purpose of a blind date, or any date for that matter, is to search for potential partners and not to weep about your each other’s exes.

Also, do not wear clothes that are too revealing, strange, or over the top.

Get a new haircut or hairstyle, which is most advisable a day before the date. Don’t forget to shine your shoes and iron your clothes if needed. Showing up on your date late can affect your date’s impression on you.

Being mean and inconsiderate does not make a good impression. Remember that conversations are supposed to be two-way, so don’t forget to let your date talk and listen to what he or she would say. Asking too much about your date’s particular detail would make him or her uncomfortable as you are stepping into the bounds of privacy.

For instance, do not ask too much about your date’s virginity after he or she revealed that your date hasn’t had any sexual encounters.

You have probably read some horrible blind dates on the web or, worse, on TV.
