Before you go out on that first date with what might be the most amazing person you’ve ever met, make sure it won’t be the last!
You will need
- A good attitude
- A sense of humor
Step 1 Be yourself. Don’t try to be someone you think your date will like.
Step 2 Make a good first impression. This includes cleanliness, confidence, and consideration. And be on time!
Go out for coffee or a drink instead of dinner. It’s less formal and less stressful.
Step 3 Respect your date. Listen and be courteous. Your conversation shouldn’t be a monologue or an interview.
Step 4 Keep the mood light and fun. On a first date, no one wants to hear about past relationships and problems.
Turn off your cell phone. Give your date all of your attention.
Step 5 Enjoy the moment. Appreciate the person you’re with, share some laughter – and breathe!
Speed dating was invented by a Los Angeles rabbi in 1998 as a way for young Jewish singles to meet.
