A Few Much Needed Blind Dating Tips

Jan 17, 2008
If the thought of going on a blind date sends shivers up your spine and presents you with a phobia of spending two or three hours with a partner who can satisfy you on neither a superficial or conversational level, the time if now for you to sit back and relax. Blind dating doesn't have to be the hell on earth that so many make it out to be. For one, you get to go out, have dinner, and enjoy yourself. Remember: enjoying yourself is dependent upon you, not who you share your company with or the circumstances thereof. And in order to maximize your enjoyment, here are some tips that can help you make the most of your blind dating opportunity.

From a pure standpoint, one of the most important parts on any date is trying to get a second one. Of course, this is dependent upon your date being someone you would want to spend time with a second time, but leave that alone for a moment. Even if they are not the kind of person you want a second date with, leave that decision in your own hands. Do this by being a fun and engaging person, with whom your partner would want to go out with again. While this may come across as "being yourself", there are degrees to that maxim. You don't want to go out on any date with your most embarrassing and ignorant behavior on display, no matter how "you" they are. A date is a time for the "best you" to make an appearance. That doesn't mean being fake, it simply means keeping your worst traits to a minimum.

When you go on a blind date you are, by definition, meeting someone for the first time. With this in mind, you'll want to set a good first impression. This can be done by dressing like you want to impress your date. It's time to bring out your best clothes, your keenest fashion sense (if you don't have any, consult an online article or a friend who knows how to dress), and a splash of nice smelling cologne or perfume.

A final thing to keep in mind when going on a blind date is to keep the setting casual and not necessarily geared toward interpersonal communication. A movie is a fine choice, as well as any show or entertainment prospect that doesn't require the both of you to sit and stare at each other through long, awkward silences. The point of a date is to get to know one another, yes, but this should come at a natural and easy pace. A one on one dinner date may be unavoidable, but you can take steps to ensure that you have things to talk about. No one wants to sit through an hour's worth of interview time, as if applying for a job.
