Tips on dating etiquette
The list could be made even longer and I will write a more complete list for you in the near future.To build trust, all you really need to do is to deliver on your promise. Every person is unique, so every first date will be, too. Don’t worry about whether or not your date fits your typical “type” or not. Don’t assume that the night will end with a kiss, that the date will definitely lead to a second, or that she won’t like you because you look nothing like her ex. Don’t let your date start to wonder if she’s been stood up or get the impression that you don’t value her time or the date itself. Okay, so this “rule” is an almost-impossible one to follow in the era of Facebook, but do your best. Make sure you pause from sharing stories about your life to ask your date questions about himself. (If all goes well, you’ll have more opportunities to share on future dates.) Do: Know what you’re looking for. It’s just a date, simply an opportunity to get to know someone better. (Besides, your date is likely just as nervous as you are.If you do cyber-stalk your date ahead of time, don’t assume you know anything real about her before you meet up. Engage in the conversation by asking follow-up questions and showing a real interest in him. And in the rare occasion that you must use it during the evening — the babysitter might be checking in, for example — explain this to your date so that she doesn’t feel awkward or alienated by the one-sided conversation going on at the table. The simple things can speak volumes about character. Before you go on a date, have an idea of what you’re looking for in a relationship. It’s better to part ways on a high note than to drag out the night until things get awkward. This will build trust between the two of you immediately.
If you did know it, then you obviously don’t need to get the insights that I will share in this article with you, since you already know everything there is to know about this topic.
Be intentional about getting to know the real-world version of your date, not the social-media variety. If your date mentions he loves pour-over coffee, remember that detail when planning where to meet next time. While the rule of avoiding topics like politics and religion isn’t one that’s set in stone — you might share a faith or political views and find those conversations to be encouraging and important — be careful to avoid hot topics that will evolve into a heated debate. If you said yes to the date, offer to split the tab. If/when he insists, show gratitude — and maybe offer to buy him a drink later. Let a friend know where you’re going and with whom. It will help you better discern if you might have a future with the person you’re with — and will help direct the conversation.
Focus on getting to know one another, not on hashing out your differences. It’s cliché-sounding but true: It’s better to be rejected for who you are than accepted for someone you’re not. You don’t know to share the nitty-gritty on Date #1, nor do you want to focus the conversation on an ex: you’ll give the impression that you haven’t moved on. First impressions count, so make sure your shirt is clean and your breath is fresh. Agree to meet your date at a public, neutral location, with the two of you arriving and leaving separately. (If you know that faith is really important to you, you’ll be more likely to bring up your own when talking about what makes you tick.) Don’t: Complain. It doesn’t have to lead anywhere, nor is the relationship doomed before it begins because you don’t sense that “spark.” Allow the date to simply be an opportunity to meet someone new.
