First date from an online dating site Cyberhook up

05 Oct

While the starting point for my advice is The Rules book series by Ellen Fein and Sherrie Schneider, I also layer in my own strategies—the tips I share with private clients and that I followed, personally, to date for marriage.

Any single woman can meet great guys online, but you do have to be disciplined, screen carefully, and always choose quality over quantity. Rule 1: Lower your expectations (but not your standards).

After all, contacting someone is just a pre-cursor to the first date.

One common reason to delay a first date is due to an attempt to learn more about the other person. I found the first few minutes of the first date are worth more than dozens of emails.

Another reason to delay would be if the person you are communicating with has expressed extreme reservations about meeting people from the internet.

So, whether you chose to indulge in a hot bath and a book, a pre-date calorie burn at the gym or fake it with a spray tan, keeping yourself occupied will prevent you from overthinking possible dating scenarios, so that when it comes to the big date itself, you’ll be relaxed and ready to go have a good time.

Where possible, choose a public or familiar place to meet where you’ll feel comfortable and secure in your surroundings.
