And, for extra measure, make sure you tell at least one friend or family member who you are meeting, where you are going and what time you expect to return – just so they know.
If you’ve been talking online, it’s more than likely that you’ll know the basics about your date and like what you’ve seen.
So, whether you chose to indulge in a hot bath and a book, a pre-date calorie burn at the gym or fake it with a spray tan, keeping yourself occupied will prevent you from overthinking possible dating scenarios, so that when it comes to the big date itself, you’ll be relaxed and ready to go have a good time.
Where possible, choose a public or familiar place to meet where you’ll feel comfortable and secure in your surroundings.
There is so much pressure to see if that online charm and chemistry translates into an offline date.
People are busy and a quick first date can make or break your chances of a possible relationship.
