One of the things which helps confidence and can keep conversations positive and upbeat is to remember that to be interesting you have to be interested in the other person.Put mobile phones away to give each other full attention.
On the other hand if you don't want a second date, don't say you will call her and then do nothing.
You will end up feeling bad and she will feel more hurt by that rather than being told honestly.
Dating is about meeting up and getting to know one another, so loads of texts/emails before meeting can tend to get you nowhere fast.
Because text messaging cannot accurately convey tone, emotion, or facial expressions it is likely that messages will be misinterpreted or misunderstood, so the real meaning of your message can get lost in translation. As soon as you have both indicated you are interested in meeting we suggest that you a text or email along the lines of ' Hi this is……………(first name). ' (Use proper words and spelling rather than abbreviated ‘text language’). Some people are great on the phone, but let's face it most of us are not, especially with someone we've never met before.
– if so suggest that and you are likely to be off to a good start).
Choose a venue where you both will feel comfortable and one which is busy enough to have a good atmosphere but still allow you to hear each other without shouting. Many restaurants offer good value lunch and early bird menus which are very suitable for first dates.Something which can work really well is to tell her what impressed you with her profile – perhaps her interests and hobbies and ask her to tell you more about them and her lifestyle.This is a great way to impress someone and increase your chances of having more follow-up dates.If she still wants to pay, perhaps suggest she gets the drinks after the meal or suggest she can pay on the next date.Even if you don't feel there is any connection when you meet, at this stage you are on the date so you might as well make your mind up to enjoy the experience no matter the outcome.Keep in mind that you should be mindful of the things you are asking since prying too soon is a big no-no and you don't want your discussion to come across as an interrogation. Don't talk about things that are negative or that you don’t enjoy or money.
