First Date Tips When Meeting From Online Dating Sites

Online dating can be a daunting and embarrassing experience for anyone who gives it a go. Read my post HERE on why my first experience was daunting. I'm not ashamed to admit I was on a dating site. What's the harm in it? Celebrities like Hilary Duff and Anne Robinson gave it a go so why not YOU?

I've decided it's better to be SAFE than REGRET so have put together 5 First Date Tips When Meeting From Online Dating Sites. 

1) Tell someone what you're doing and where you're going. It doesn't have to be a big deal unless you make it one. Drop it into a conversation, no matter what age you are it will make you feel that little more relaxed. 

2) Make the venue an open, public place! A local cafe or coffee shop never fails, it will give you both a chance to talk freely and openingly to get to know each other. 

3) Pick a place you are familier with. Just incase the date isn't going well you need to know your exits and surrounding areas. 

4) Don't be afraid to cut a date short. This isn't a job interview it's a date! Set an alarm on your phone and put it in your bag or face down! When it goes off answer it like a text confidently and let the person know you need to be going. If the date is going well then flick the alarm off and carry on!

5) Relax, have fun and enjoy yourself! Good-Luck on your first date (not that you'll need it)
