Dating Dos and Don’ts for LDS Singles| Post by LDSDatingSites.org
For most people, first dates are necessary evils you simply cannot avoid or get around with. No one can simply jump past the nervousness and awkwardness and go straight to confidence and comfort. Or is it possible? Are there some rules that you can follow to ensure that your first date will be enjoyable and fun and less nerve-wracking and sweaty? For the LDS singles who will be going out on a first date, there are some simple dos and don’ts to keep in mind for you to endure the experience.
- Do remember who you really are. Out of all other people in the world, your date chose to spend some time with you. It only goes to say that you are someone who is worthy to get to know. Make sure to relax and simply let your inner light shine brightly.
- Be yourself. Laugh if you find something funny. Answer questions and ask questions. While you might find it extremely difficult to be yourself when you go on a date, just take a deep breath and try to make this the easiest part instead.
- Listen! As your date agreed to spend time with you, it means that he or she would like to give you a good impression and is interested to know him or her better as well. Keep your mouth shut and listen carefully. Give your date the chance to impress you.
- Give a chance to your date. So, your date didn’t turn out to be the woman or man of your dreams. However, you can never tell if the person will end up surprising you and leave you a positive impression.
- Prepare a backup plan. A great trick to feel more relaxed and confident on your first date is to be ready to fend for yourself. Make sure you have enough money with you to cover the dinner. Drive yourself for you to leave when the date ends up miserably, Know your exact location so you can suggest some things you can try or do.
- Don’t take things too seriously. A single date doesn’t mean that you have to pick out china patterns. It doesn’t mean that the other person wants anything more than several hours of getting to know you better. Never read too much into the date.
- Don’t pretend to be a person you are not. Always to stand up for things you believe in. Provide honest answers and not popular answers. The two of you is going to appreciate this later on.
- Don’t be rude. If you feel nervous, chances are your date feels the same as well. Let him or her have some space to make mistakes and feel nervous. Don’t blame them for it and never be rude.
- Don’t move to fast and leave them craving for more. Never throw all of the baggage you got at your date at the same time. Don’t wear your heart on your sleeves too soon. Don’t forget that this is just the first date. Give the other person a few reasons to like you before you give reasons to take a pause.
