No one wants to hear about your sad past on a first date. Talk about your favorite film, play, vacation spot, book, or what you enjoy doing on the weekends. It’s fine for my parents, as they have been married for over 50 years. Engage with the person sitting across the table from you.Too often, though, I hear about men staring at their cute waitress or having a roving eye while on their first date with someone. Men are visual creatures and they can imagine undressing women with their eyes the moment they meet.
If you think this is ridiculous, you’d be surprised.
Often, I hear about coffee dates where a gentleman will either bring his own water or just refuse to order a cup of tea for the woman he is meeting.
If he is truly interested in getting to a second date, a coffee date means exactly that: it involves a beverage. A lunch or dinner date means ordering something to eat. You can even use Match Mobile™ while you’re on the go.
Experts know that online dating can be a numbers game.
You need to always put your best foot forward when you find a profile that’s intriguing and are interested in pursuing someone.
But what many singles fail to realize is that your number-one pick may also be many other people’s favorite, too!
I sometimes compare Internet dating to an online auction: there might be multiple bidders at any time, and may the best man or woman win.
Do I think that online singles are nothing more than objects of affection? Online dating is simply the first step in building a relationship between two people that you need to successfully move offline.
But remember, there could be heavy competition for dates — and you can’t afford to blow your first impression, either online or off-line.
