Keep things short and chatty to test the waters, remember that you don’t have anything to lose by reaching out and have fun getting to know the person on the other side of the profile; once you are ready, set up that first date!
When going on a date, there are several things you should avoid.
It is okay to leave you phone on in case of an emergency, but you should not be texting other people or taking unnecessary phone calls when you are sharing the night with your date. If you are looking to go on a second date and hope that this relationship may potentially get serious, then lying on the first date can cause complications later in the relationship. Don’t do anything to make your date uncomfortable, such as touching them in certain areas, asking personal questions, etc.
This may compromise your chances of having a second date.

Try to be modest in the way you talk with your date and make sure you both share the conversation equally rather than one of you doing all the talking. This will make it look like you aren’t interested in the date at all and it is very disrespectful.Don’t give out too many personal details on a first date, as this may scare some people away, but sharing basic information about yourself, such as where you grew up, what you like to do in your spare time, etc., is perfectly acceptable.Don’t, however, talk about past relationships or bring up very personal information.Always keep an open mind, don’t worry too much about ‘compatibility’ and you’ll be sure to find some fantastic people; from there it’s all up to you.4.
