Going on blind dates is always an adventure. It can be interesting or disappointing. Some people get desperate about love chance after them. So, how should we treat online dating like this?
Well, it's personal. Some people prefer risky blind dating. Some people opt for real dates face to face. Let's study the advantage and disadvantages of blind dates for singles.
Some people simply don't attract our attention. It's usually based on the stereotypes in our heads or on the opinions of the public. Blind dates give us a rare chance to get into a relationship with very decent men and women that you've never considered for a date before. That's a very rewarding experience that broadens our minds and makes us rethink a lot of our original intents.
As soon as you know almost nothing about a person you're dating, you may feel embarrassed and startled from the very beginning of your date. Usual online dating has a lot more to suggest in comparison to blind dates. It's highly important to know more about the background of a person and ask the right questions. You have to find out whether you have common interests and ideas. You'll need to test the waters and understand who is sitting in front of you. It's extremely awkward.
As soon as you've never met before, you don't have to create an ideal image in your mind. Your imagination won't have reason to expect something peculiar from a person you see for the first time. If you have nothing to expect – you have nothing to be disappointed. It's cool if the date is going well and it's ok if it ends with slight disappointment. Who cares what will happen if you have nothing in particular to expect?
There's a high risk that your partner will be so weird that you don't know how to react. Things may go very, very bad. You'll have a feeling you need to run away as fast as possible. The person in front of you can be a mumble, an aggressor, a weirdo, a freak, a poser or a yeller. Things may go so strange that you'll have to find an escape route in order to save yourself and your mental state.
Think positive and do your best to remember this “memorable event” in details. Online dating is a source of remarkable experience.
Blind dates are cool in many matters:
If you want the first date to go well, you should take care of the good organization of it. Talk about the best place for your meeting in advance. Bear in mind that your opinion may be different. In this case better to follow the girl's desires and to choose the place she likes.
You can go to a nice restaurant to walk in the park. We don't recommend to choose a cinema as a place for the first date. In this case you can't communicate with each other enough, so you will need the second date to get to know each other. If you want to watch a movie, you can continue your meeting in a restaurant after that.
The first online date is very exciting but don't forget about your safety. It's better to meet on a neutral territory. Don't meet with an unknown person in an abandoned place. Let your close people know that you are going on the blind date. Tell them everything you know about your new partner.
We will give you some ideas that will help you to spend the blind date successfully.
The first meeting is often associated with awkward moments and shyness. How to act to be confident and interesting? Firstly, act naturally. Don't try to be another person. If you are too shy, you can barely hide it. Luckily, a lot of girls find shy men cute and awesome. Don't hate this feature and be yourself.
Secondly, try to prepare for your first meeting in advance. If you tell your partner about curious facts and share something interesting, you both won't have to be silent. Find several nice subjects for your conversations and ask more questions.
Don't try to attract a girl with expensive gifts. Women recognize your true attitude very well. If she doesn't like your personality, she won't be with you for a long time and you can't have serious relationships with her. Instead of luxury gifts, you can give her good chocolate or several nice flowers. In this case your partner will appreciate your attention and care.
Meeting someone online for the first time may be disappointing. Unfortunately, not every date is successful. If you feel you can't be a good couple, better to say goodbye to each other on the first date. You don't need to be completely honest. If you say you don't like a woman because of her appearance, it will be very rude. Just say you aren't ready for serious relationships or that you don't feel you can be together.
The etiquette for online dating will help you to be polite and courteous man. We will give you some rules of your behavior:
If you follow these rules, your first blind date will be interesting and exciting. Depending on its results, you can decide if you need the second meeting and serious relationships with this woman.
