August 24, 2007, Newsletter Issue #182: Dating Tips: Don'ts

Tip of the Week

There are lots of dating do's; here are are a few 'do nots' for the first (or any) date. 1. Avoid anything elaborate plans and situations that are too intricate leave too much room for disaster during a first date. 2. Avoid appearing distracted or not looking into your date's eyes. 3. Don't be boastful; nothing ruins a date more than needless pretension. 4. Don't use the date as personal therapy. The point of the first date is to get to know someone not to vent your frustrations, hang-ups or personal history. 5. Avoid being self-deprecating and always thank your date for any compliments. 6. Avoid talking about past relationships while on a date. Nothing ruins a first date more quickly than someone who can't stop talking about their ex. 7. Try not to be nervous on your date. A case of nerves can make the date awkward. Don't try to deal with nervousness by consuming alcohol, either; getting drunk will make the situation even more awkward. 8. Keep the first date short. If it's bad, you can both leave quickly; if it's good, you're both left wanting more.
