Online dating first date rules
As you both become more comfortable with one another you and your date should begin to feel more relaxed, and the conversation more open to share who you both are and to simply enjoy the experience you’re sharing, whether it’s a cup of coffee, a nice meal or a walk along the boardwalk or park.
So once the initial nerves of the first date have passed, look for an easy conversational style between you.
If you tend to be more of an anxious type, try reminding yourself that a first date is a casual getting-to-know-you session.
You should feel the same level of attraction and interest, if not more, than when you first met a few hours before. Do you feel as though your date is speeding things up and using excuses like, “Woo! I don’t know what happened; I think I should call it an early night,” or “Gee, I hope I’m not coming down with something; I’d really hate to get you sick”?
Or maybe it’s you that is uttering those words–If you don’t feel enough attraction and interest toward your date, don’t fake it.
There are no commitment clauses, only an opportunity for great conversation and company.
When you put your interest in another person and what he or she is all about first above your insecure thoughts about yourself, the nervousness melts away and you can truly “be yourself.” On the other hand, less than positive anticipation toward a date can indicate that your feelings for the person that you’re meeting are not that strong.
