Different Types Of Blind Dating

Jul 4, 2008
It is amazing how the human mind works for a little novelty and thrilling experience. Now that all of us know about the various categories of dating, do you think we have had enough? Sometimes our thirst for something new and exhilarating makes us experiment with new ideas making us steer on the edge.

Ever heard of blind dates? You must have. It is not a new concept. Blind dating is a method of going out on dates with total strangers. You do not have any information regarding this person. You might be going out with your building janitor or for that matter, even with one of your friends parent.

Scary? It is, but for some it is equal to getting a high. Blind dates are usually of two types. The first type is that you are completely in the dark about your date with no information whatsoever. This form of blind dating could be dangerous and disappointing especially if that person does not measure up to your expectations.

The other type of blind date is when you have not met the person actually, but you know him through emails, chats and phone conversations. We give you a few blind dating fundamentals so that your date does not end in a disastrous way nor puts you in any awkward position

Have low expectations
Considering that you are going out on the second type of blind date, keep your expectations low till you meet the person. It may so happen that the deep throated voice or the seductive husky voice may be of a bald man or an overweight woman respectively. Keeping low expectations in the beginning will even help you to keep your frustrations at bay.

Do not prolong the meeting
When you meet this person fix a short duration for your meeting so that you can gracefully exit out, should you feel the need to escape from there.

Do not arrange for dinner or lunch rendezvous where you may have difficulty in excusing yourself from an unpleasant experience. If however you like the other person, then you can extend your meeting or promise him a second meeting very soon.

Do not pretend to be someone else
This is one of the blind dating fundamentals which everybody tends to forget or rather ignore. For if you do intend to continue the relationship further you will have to take off the mask sooner or later. Let the other person know in the first meeting only who you are.

Get to know the other person better
The blind dating fundamentals propose that you pay attention to your date as to what he is saying so that you get an idea of his characteristics which is highly essential to weigh the compatibility quotient.

You should recognize some signals which warn you of on toward perils in case you wish to see him again. Make a note when he talks excessively about his previous girlfriend, or uses derogatory remarks for his mother or girlfriend or treats others with contempt.
