5 Tips That Will Help You Have A Smooth Blind Date
First dates, especially when it’s a blind date can be very nerve racking as a result of so many reasons. To beat this, you have to look for opportunities in it and lower your standards a bit.
A blind date is a date where you have never met the person in person, where you have either been chatting online or talking on the phone but have never met.
So if you are going on a blind date soon, here are some useful tips for you:
1. Open your mind.
You can’t know everything about a person up front, so don’t be quick to judge. Remember: chemistry can grow; people will grow on you when you get to know them; and some people are nervous on dates. As long as you’re not a total recluse, you’re certainly capable of enjoying almost any human being—you just have to keep an open mind.
2. Try something new or weird.
. When two people share a novel experience, it bonds them. Ever heard that said? it is absolutely true. When on a blind date, if you are not careful, it could go sour and if you play your game right, it could turn out to be a wonderful experience. Be open to trying new things, food and places.
3. Humuor is good.
Laughter is the best medicine for a date (good or bad). This is not to say that you should openly laugh at your date or something close to that. All we are saying is that you should try to laugh a bit more. Do not be too stiff.
4. Learn more.
If you don’t care to learn anything about this guy, what can you learn from him? Can you get some business advice? Industry gossip? Maybe he can even fix the settings on your camera. Use this means to get to know him better.
5. Be ready to tolerate
If the guy is repulsive, uninteresting, and/or extremely unintelligent, try not to sit and stare as this is totally rude. You’ll fixate on whatever it is that’s bugging you. Get up and get him involved in an activity you enjoy most. Get talking, ask questions. In all you do, be tolerant.
