20 Ways to Have Awesome Blind date Survival Tips
Are you planning yourself for a blind date with someone you haven’t met before?
Blind dates are an exciting thought, what we have noticed but yet, it’s something that doesn’t always turn out right. On one hand, the thought seems daring that you’re meeting someone to whom you don’t really know.
On the other hand, your hands are tied and you’ll have to endure them for the rest of the evening if your date turns out to be an obnoxious loser.
1. Be flexible in your expectations.
Now we can’t tell you not to have any expectations at all, but instead, all we can suggest is to avoid having very high or low expectations from the date. Head to the date try to think of it with an open mind, if you were going to meet a friend.
If both of you get smitten by each other and the chemistry clicks, that’s good for you. Even you won’t feel disappointed walking away otherwise from the date after meeting a potential friend.
2. Bug your matchmaker.
Try to get to know as much as you can about your date from your matchmaker if it’s a friend who’s setting both of you up. To build the suspense even your friend’s trying by hushing all details, ask your friend to tell you more about their personality so you know what to talk about during the date.
3. Put Safety First
Anytime you’re meeting up with a total stranger, it’s a good idea to be a little cautious when planning your date — because it’s better to be safe than sorry!
Meet in a public place and tell someone trusted where you are! Don’t be afraid to post your location on social media and remember to be aware of your surroundings. Don’t let your date pressure you into anything and have an escape (like an alarm set like a ringtone) ready if you need it.”
4. Keep It Casual
First dates don’t have to be extravagant or super lengthy in order to be “good” — in fact, if you keep things more low-key, it’ll be easier to get an accurate sense of what your connection with your date is like.
“A first date shouldn’t be a production,” “It should be a time where you get to know the other person by talking to them about their life and experiences. A setting that has a fairly low noise level is a good idea so that conversation can flow smoothly.”
5. Standing a date up.
If you can’t your date on time, let your date make sure you to know about it at least a few hours before the date. And do apologize profusely for it too.
After taking a quick peek at your date Never ever walk away from a date from outside the restaurant. Don’t walk away even if your blind date isn’t to your liking. Instead, try to finish the date early to meet your date.
6. Have a nice time.
The surprise is part of the package when it comes to a blind date. Sometimes, it may be a less-than-pleasant experience and at other times it may be a pleasant surprise. But nevertheless, plaster a smile on your face and try to have the best time you can with each other.
You never know, you’d want to go out with, just when you think your date is the last person you may start to see a few charming shared interests that may bring really close in no time to both of you.
7. Don’t be rude.
To spend it with you your date has taken a lot of time off from their life. Respect that thought and your date. Don’t treat them with disrespect Even if you find your date boring or someone who’s on the opposite end of your perfect definition of a lover. With a happy memory be pleasant and finish the date, even if it wasn’t a perfect fairytale ending.
8. Don’t walk away.
If you don’t like their behavior or you think you can’t tolerate your date or find your date extremely obnoxious, just tell them. Don’t just get up and walk away in the middle of the date. Not all of us are built in pairs to be perfect for each other. At times, to find prince charming you have to kiss a few frogs. But that doesn’t mean you should walk over all the frogs that didn’t turn into a prince!
9. Be open to conversations.
At ease immediately to help your date feel, talk about yourself, your likes and your dislikes. Both of you may have no idea about each other in blind date, so help each other open up by asking the right questions. So you know, to start for a happy conversations work or leisure activities are always a good.
10. Throw out any and all expectations.
To walk in expecting Bradley is the fastest way to kill a blind date is Cooper and then feels nothing but disappointment when it’s someone other than Bradley Cooper (and we guarantee it will be). Do not expect Mr. Perfect Even if you had an amazing, two-hour phone conversation and his online profile was custom written for you. No one can live up to that. Stay busy beforehand to make sure you don’t build up the date in your mind too much. Also, we don’t mean you should have low expectations (“He’s going to suck”)—just have no expectations. Quick! Think about something else.
11. Wear something you love.
Sometimes, to put on our fancy high heels just keep us happy. On blind date, we must have excited to be dressed up, and arrived in a good mood.
12. Don’t Put Too Much Pressure on the Date
It’s OK to be optimistic and hope for the best on dates, but having super high expectations can lead to disappointment. The best first date expectation to have is simply that you’ll get to know someone new — you can worry about the rest later.
“Be yourself and be honest,” “First dates aren’t the time to find out the person’s entire life history but you can get a good idea of what they might want in the future. Don’t get hung up on small things and keep the big picture in mind. if you don’t sense any chemistry You can always decline the next date.”
13. Skip the Small Talk
Getting a conversation flowing with a total stranger isn’t always easy, but if you’re willing to dig a little deeper than small talk, try asking some questions that will help you really get to know your date.
“Don’t spend your whole date talking about the weather,”. “You’ll end up walking away realizing you know nothing about the person and you’ll have no choice but to go out again to find out more. Jump right in there with the big questions you want answers to — who are they as a person and do you guys have anything in common?
14. Open your mind.
Up front, everything you can’t know about a person, so don’t be quick to judge. Remember: people will grow on you when you get to know them; chemistry can grow; and some people are nervous on dates, you’re capable of enjoying almost any human being as long as you’re not a total misanthrope —you just have to keep an open mind.
15. Don’t complain.
Stay positive and keep things light. If he complains, change the subject.
16. Watch the alcohol.
The Millionaire Matchmaker’s Patti Stanger says not to drink more than two cocktails because you need clarity. We agree about the clarity; after a month, you don’t want to sober up and realize you’re not attracted to the guy. However, especially if it’s a long date where two drinks isn’t much. All things depending on your tolerance, who’s driving, and whether or not you eat, we think it’s okay to have three or four.
17. Leave your insecurities at home.
If you sense a guy is not interested in you, we don’t focus on that fact (it won’t help anybody). What does make him smile, Just try to find out. (Your jokes? or talking something else?).
18. Try something new or weird.
Try frog legs on one date and kumquat grappa on another.it bonds them When two people share a novel experience.
19. Find the funny.
For a crappy date Laughter is the best medicine. What’s humorous about your surroundings? Take notes and laugh later with your friends if the guy has the sense of humor of a wet mop.
20. Learn more.
What can you learn from him? If you don’t care to learn anything about this guy, Can you get some investment advice? industry gossip? Maybe he can fix the settings on your camera.
