Blind Date - Successful Blind Dating

Successful Blind Dating

The first step to a blind date is to prepare for the encounter. It is important to search for information on the person who will be going on the date. Looking at online profiles or asking the mutual friend who arranged the date is a common method for receiving information. Another aspect of preparation for a date is choose a location for the date.

Many dating websites recommend that the location of the first date is in public and that someone knows where and when the date is supposed to take place for safety reasons. It is also suggested that instead of just informing someone of where you will be going on your date, you have an escape plan that is not only believable, but can actually be implemented. An escape plan can be as simple as making dinner plans with a family member or a night out with a friend who you can easily call to cancel your plans if the date is going well, or a friend you can have call you so you have a believable end to the date.

Next, you must prepare what you will look like for your blind date. It is important to dress appropriately for the occasion so that you can present the best version of yourself and so that you are comfortable, therefore making the date more likely to be successful.

Many dating websites recommend that you remember that both parties in the blind dating experience can be nervous or inexperienced, so it is important to keep an open mind and give your date a fair chance to make a good impression. Finally, it is important that you be yourself and you remain honest throughout the evening. It is possible that not all dates will end in a relationship, so being honest about what you want to happen after the blind date is important to remember.
