Learn to be comfortable with pauses in the conversation; you don't need to fill the silence with words.
These things happen, and even though it may just be that either or both of you are having an off day, it is much better to cut things short than linger while trying to figure out what's bugging you.Although it is chivalrous if your date wants to pick you up at your house or place of employment, safe dating doesn't include allowing a stranger to come to your home at this stage of the game.Plan to drive, take the bus, walk, or bike to your date, especially if the date is a first-time meeting.Avoid drinking or using anything that might impair your judgment on the first few dates, where possible.But if you do feel compelled to drink on a date, make sure it's within your sight at all times, and keep it to one or two drinks at the most to reduce the inhibition-losing side of things.Someone once told me they felt safer in the middle of New York City than Detroit because in New York City there's always someone around.You want to use the same mentality with your dates: make sure there's always someone around no matter where you're meeting.Here are eight rules to help make that first date successful and lead to a second date.If you agree to go out, he will assume that you have no life and have been hanging out by the phone waiting for him to call. This isn't "game playing" - men do not want you to be too eager (desperate). He can't be that fascinating and you also have something to say.Keep it light hearted, discover what you have in common and laugh a lot.There is a fine line between the excitement of a first date and feeling that something isn't quite right.
