Your First Date From Your Free Dating Website

Feb 1, 2008
A first date with a person you met on a free dating website is as stressful as a real world first date. Know how to avoid a disastrous first date by reading this article.

After exchanging a few emails and established enough time, it is now time to meet face to face with your guy or gal from your free dating website. First dates with people you meet in a free dating website are much like blind dates, only that you know quite a little about your date. You may already know what your date look like if you have exchanged photos. Nevertheless, the thrill and the excitement of a first date will surely be present.

Where to go on your first date

It is but prudent to meet your date in a public place. Remember that you are meeting someone you don't know, there is still a chance that their attitude in reality is different from how you perceived them to be with your online exchanges. So, have your first date in a place where there will be other people. A park, a coffee shop or a restaurant make great venues.

As in real life, make your first free dating website date quick and short. This way, you will not be stuck when there is no chemistry. If there is, there's always a next date to follow. During the course of your date, remember to smile as it can be your most powerful weapon. If you are the man, it will never hurt to buy flowers or chocolates before meeting your date. Try not to order anything that would be incredibly messy if you are eating out. Of course, all these come secondary. What is important is that you focus on the interaction between you and your date.

When you first meet your date from your free dating website, do not expect to feel an instant attraction. If you are disappointed about how your date looks like, do not close your doors immediately. Instead, give it a little more time for the conversation to unfold. Instant chemistry is extremely rare, as is "love at first site."

You may already know a bit about the other person from your initial communication through the free dating website. These bits and pieces can make great topics for conversation. It will be a good idea to share about yourself as it will become easier for your date to open up as well. However, never try to hog the conversation. Make sure you take time to ask about your date as well. Ask the person about their interests, personality and background. Observe how your date reacts to your questions and be sensitive when there are topics they are reluctant to discuss.

It can be stressful to meet someone from a free dating website for the first time. There is that fear of rejection, the wanting to get accepted, the apprehension that the other person might not be exactly as you imagined - prepare to go through all these. However, do not put more stress on yourself than you should. Do not think too much, and never expect too much. Keep everything spontaneous and free-flowing. Never exert too much or work too hard. Instead, focus on the conversation and enjoy the experience. Yes, whether you like your date or not.
