The perfect first datePosted on: February 27, 2013 10:45:05
Where to go on a first date can be a difficult decision, particularly if you're meeting that person for the very first time.
Meeting somewhere in a public place and situated near to both of you is vital, especially if arranging a visit with someone from an online dating website.
Make your own way to the decided location if possible, so if things don't go to plan you can make your excuses when you're ready to leave, without committing to taking them home or enduring an awkward car ride back.
It also eliminates the 'should I invite them in for coffee' dilemma when being dropped off.
Although you are likely to have seen pictures of your date from their profile when searching for love online, pre-planning what you are going to wear or bring with you so you can both easily spot one another can help to avoid any red faces or vacant expressions on arrival.
First dates should be kept short and sweet, spending just enough time to find out a bit more about one another, but leaving you with plenty to talk about on future dates.
Meeting during a lunch hour for a coffee is a favourite - and for good reason. It is not only a cheap option, but it provides an end point where the date can come to a natural finish. If you're both getting on, you can suggest heading somewhere else once the drinks have been supped, but if things aren't as you hoped, you can kindly make your excuses and leave.
More formal situations and longer outings such as a meal or cinema trip should be left to the second or third date.
Carlos Xuma, a dating expert, believes going to watch a film or eating out on a first date is one of the biggest no-nos.
"A short meeting at a coffee shop is a great first date idea. That way both parties have a chance to get to know one another in a low-key environment without any pressure on either person," he added.
