How to Successfully Go Through a Blind Date
People just do not know the right way of getting through blind dates, which in reality makes all the difference. Most blind dates are set up by friends or through mutual acquaintances, which is more reason to believe that there might be some sort of chemistry or the possibility of chemistry between the two individuals being set up. Let's be honest, most friends will not set up a blind date between two people they know will not get together or the probability of them liking each other is in the negatives. Nonetheless, blind dates are set up with the thought of two single people, who are looking for a relationship but just have not been fortunate enough to come across each other. Therefore, the forces of nature work in a strange way to somehow bring them together. Now that we have cleared up what blind dates are and how they work, we should move forward to the real task; providing tips to help people survive blind dates.
First, you have to keep your expectation levels at normal or even low levels and emotions have to be stable. Once you are able to get a hold of yourself, only then will you be able to move forward. It is very important that you make a great first impression. The saying, "the first impression is the last impression', actually holds some truth to it, therefore take this blind date seriously from the instant you hear about it. Make sure that you dress the part and are looking your outright best. If you are going to the movies, wearing a three-piece suit will not really help you much. Instead, choose clothing that keep you comfortable, but at the same time highlight your strengths. It is also important to ensure that your personal hygiene is at better than usual.
Secondly, you have to be interesting; otherwise, you might bore the hell out of the other person. Think over possible interesting topics about yourself, and since it is your first date, you will have to make an extra effort to let the other person learn as much as he or she can about you. However, remember to separate the good from the bad, for example, you would not want to give the impression that you are a workaholic, who rarely has time for anyone or anything else. Lastly, do not be selfish. Give the other person the same, if not more, time to talk about themselves. Listening and remembering is vital for a healthy conversation.
