You Will Need
- Blind date contact information
- Internet access
- A local newspaper
- A comfortable outfit
- Your cell phone
Get contact information
Ask the person setting up the date for the blind date’s contact information. Call or e-mail the person before you meet.
Meet in a public place
Meet in a public place to play it safe and establish a casual, stress-free tone.
Keep the location casual
Keep the location casual: go out for a drink or for coffee. This will cost less, and allow you to discuss a second dinner date.
Keep it short
Limit the date to one hour. If things go badly, you’ll have an easier out and if they go well, you’ll have more to look forward to.
Wear comfortable clothing
Wear clothing that makes you feel comfortable and confident.
Give information to friends and family
Let friends and family know where you’ll be, who you’ll be with, and the time you’ll be away. Bring your cell phone.
