It’s your first date, and you’re very nervous. These days, it’s likely that you met online, maybe through a social network or a dating agency. So what are the commonsense rules for women in this situation?
First of all, make sure that you meet somewhere very public. A restaurant, a coffee bar, even a busy park to share a lunchtime sandwich. A daytime meeting, if you can manage it, is best. No matter how nice a person may seem on-line, you still need to make sure you are safe. Always tell a friend who you are meeting with and where, and when you expect to be back, and take your phone with you – of course!
Secondly, just in case your date is really awful, make sure in advance that the meeting is time limited. For example, agree to meet for lunch, and make sure he knows that you have to leave by 1.30 to get back to work. That way you only have an hour or so to suffer! And if he’s nice, then you’ll be meeting again anyway. If you find you can only meet up in the evening, then arrange for a girlfriend to call you an hour or so into the date, so that if you want, you can make an excuse and leave. “The cat’s sick,” is a good one, unless your date happens to be a vet!
Next, you have to decide what to wear, that all important question! Obviously you want to look your best, but avoid clothing that’s too revealing and sexy. Just for once, wear something your mother would approve of. No man who is worth knowing will mind if you look a little modest. Don’t buy new clothes, wear something you’re comfortable in. And don’t soak yourself in heavy perfume, many men find this off-putting. Just be natural, it’s only a date, surely no money involved, so no need to have personal loans at all. But in times of crisis, personal loan is the best remedy for any short-term expenditure.
Though personal loan can be used to meet unexpected emergencies, but still you should take extra cautious before jumping in.
Finally, think of some good questions to ask; about his hobbies, his work, his family. Not only will you find out more about him that way, you will show him that you are interested in him as a person – which, if you like him, is exactly the impression you want to leave him with.
