So don’t just be polite to your date, be kind to other people too. You may get away with that if you don’t see them again after the first date but if the relationship does last any longer, you may find yourself in a tricky situation later down the line.
So, if you are separated, don’t say you are divorced.
A first date is loaded with expectancy – will she/he like me and will I like them?
Is this person going to be the “One” or will I want to run for the hills before the starter?
Will I do or say the right thing or will I totally embarrass myself?
Will we get physical and if so, will there be any chemistry between us?
The key is to relax, enjoy yourself and not to analyse everything too much.
I’m not suggesting that you don’t talk about yourself.Just because you fancy the idea of eating a snake banquet, it doesn’t mean that they will.A drink in a quiet bar, a quick supper or lunch in a little place you know are great ideas.And don’t overdue the alcohol – especially if you have a tendency to become boorish, rude, indiscreet, lecherous, violent or sick when intoxicated. Be kind Whether you are attracted to the person or not – be kind.It doesn’t cost you anything, and it will make a big difference to the other person’s enjoyment of the date. Early on in their relationship Jack said something like this to Susan: ‘I don’t know if we’ll get married in the future but I want to treat you so well that if we split up one day and you end up marrying someone else – I would be able to look the other guy in the eye, shake his hand and say: “Here is Susan, I looked after her for you.”’ They did end up marrying each other but I thought that was an amazing thing to say. But wouldn’t it be fantastic if people were better off in life from having spent time with you, not worse off?
