BLIND DATE

- A social engagement between two persons who have not previously met, usually arranged by a mutual acquaintance.

I have been set up for a blind date, I filled with a wonderful mix of emotions. On one hand, I may be hoping that the friend who set  up had some incredible foresight in knowing that we two were meant for each other. Many people look forward to the prospect of a blind date with great hope, and yet there is also some fear about not being “good enough” for the other person or simply not being liked. There can also be an element of stress involved, too, as I ponder the prospect of spending an entire evening with someone who I really don’t know and may not even like!

When preparing for a blind date, it is often best to cast aside doubts and worries, and to really plan for the best outcome. If you want to give your upcoming blind date every chance for success, here are some tips to follow that can help you make that happen:

MAKE A GREAT FIRST IMPRESSION

It’s very simple and general. (hygiene, dress to impress…) I don’t need to elaborate.

BE INTERESTING

Keep in mind that what you choose to stay about yourself on that first date will say a lot about who you are as a person. The last thing you want to do is give off the impression that you are a home-body, a workaholic, or something with a similar negative connotation. So try to include a great mix of interests in your conversation. You can talk about work a little bit and about that great book that you are reading, but you also want to talk about other things, too. If you have learned that you and your date share some interests together from the mutual friend who set you up, that is a great topic to start out talking about.

DON’T BE SELFISH

While your date certainly wants to spend some time learning more about you during the date, nobody wants to sit there and listen to you talk about how great you are the entire evening. By all means, spend time talking about yourself so your date has enough information to determine if he or she wants to see you again, but you want your date feel like you are interested in learning more about him or her, too. You should absolutely spend some of the evening asking about things like your date’s job, interests, background, and more.

By the end of your blind date, you likely have a good idea about whether or not you want to see this person again for a second date or if one date was more than enough. In many cases, your feelings about whether to pursue a second date or not will be reciprocated, but there are times when one person may feel differently about how the date went than the other person feels.

To avoid any confusion whatsoever, you should make your feelings about the date perfectly clear. It can be awkward to do, but it will save you plenty of grief later by being upfront about it. If you feel that the date went well, absolutely say that you had a great time and that you would like to see him or her again. If the date was a dud, be tactful but clear. Often saying something like that you don’t think the two of you are a good fit is enough of a letdown to make your intentions clear but won’t lead the other person on.

Whether your first blind date continues on into a great new relationship or it ends after just that first date, you will find that following these tips will make your evening altogether more pleasant for the both of you. If your first blind date does lead to a long term relationship, you will be happy that you put your best foot forward with these tips!
