Ask questions about your date
Ask your date questions to learn more about them and discover common interests. Listen to them attentively.
Do not abandon your principles

Treat your date with respect
Do not pressure your date to engage in activities that they are not comfortable with. Treat them with respect and you are more likely to get a second date.
