Dating Rule #8- Leave time to get to know each other

A date that is chock full of activity keeps you busy, but if the purpose is a change to get to know one another,  some quite time is a great idea. Without a bunch of distracting noice,  activity,  or an audience,  you can talk to and get a sense of one another.

Dating Rule #7- Pick an activity that doesn’t involve a lot of alcohol

Alcohol has been, is now, and will continue to be for the foreseeable future the major drug of abuse in this country (more pilgrims drowned in the canals after getting drunk and falling overboard on saturday nights than were killed by Native Americans). Both of you are going to feel a bit nervous anyway, why add the temptations and problems of alcohol, especially if you have to drive home?

Dating Rule #6 Do something that isn’t competitive

Avoid arm wrestling on the first date. Although some relationships thrive on tension, it’s hard to put competitive feelings in a context when you don’t know each other. Even if you’re not competing with each other, how you deal with someone trying to beat you while the date you’re trying to impress is watching gets pretty dicey. And beating someone on a first date means that one of you feels like a winner and one like a loser. Not a cool idea.

I walk fast. For years it was my primary from of exercise, and I still use it to leep in shape. When I say fast, I mean fast. Often, without realizing it, I’ve left my companions no choice but to carry on a conversation with the back of my head. Oops.  The point is that different people are comfortable with different levels of activity. Bear this in mind before you suggest a saturday hike, roller-blanding, break dancing, or bungee-jumping from a hovering helicopter.

Dating Rule #5-Go to a palce that’s easy to get to

Long car, bus, train, and – god forbid – plane trips may be fun once you get to know one another, but for a first date, it’s really risky, although these trips have occasionally worked out as a way for two people to get to know one another (at least you can talk), you run the risk of using up your tolerance for one another before you arrive at your destination, and then, boy, are you both stuck, whereas, if you’d just gotten to know each other in smaller doses, you may have been okey.

Dating Rule #4 – Go where you can talk without getting thrown out

I know America’s favorite date is a movie, but if you talk to a movie, I will personally come and haunt you. Not only is it rude to the other customers, but it puts your date in the awkward position of either siding with the people who are trying to shush you or talking with you and getting the usher to evict you both.  See the section “Good places for a first date” for a list of places that are cheap and fun and where you two can chat happily away. When it doubt, take a walk.

Happy Dating!

Dating Rule #3- Do something that doesn’t require new clothes

New Clothes are often uncomfortable and tend to bunch, rip, catch, and get spilled on. Why worry about clothes when there are more important things to worry about, like the brocoli between front teeth or whether your date really likes you or is just being polite. Wear your happy, easy-to-wear, good luck clothes.

If  I ran the world, I’d make sure that on first dates. everyone would wear their oldest, most comfy clothes: women would not shave their legs: men would not buy new after shave: and everybody would be who they really are, right from the get so. Obviously, I’m not in charge.

Dating Rule #2-Pick The activity that you can easily afford

Don’t try to snow somebody on the the first date by spending bobs and money. First of all, how do you keep that type of spending up? The dangers of throwing money around are that it makes you look cheap later. When you scale back your spending to accommodate your budget, and you never know whether your date likes you or your wallet. Also consider your date’s pocketbook before suggesting an exclusive new restaurant, any formal event, dinner and dancing, or a weekend for two in the Bahamas. Even if you are footing the bill, you don’t want your date to feel like they’s out of yourleague.

I have a friend who likes to rent a limo and take first dates to the opera and then out for a fancy dinner. All this works out to $500 first date. Then he wonders why women are always using him. Puh-leeeze. It’s much better to start small and build so that your date assumes you’re more invested in both of you together rather then showing off.

Dating Rule #1- Pick an Activity that you enjoy

A first date should be something that you like to do. Do not pick something you hate just because you think your partner will enjoy it. althought this may be a good strategy later on, the goal during the first date is to set the tone. If you choose something you like, at least you have that is common with your date (presuming, of course, that your date accepted the invitation because hi or she likes the activity, too). If your date hates the idea, hope-fully he or she will say something like ” I really would like to spend time with you, but i hate jazz” or “I’m allergic to Chinese food” or “I get clustrophobic (Car sick or whatever) in submarines .”

Picking something you enjoy has a few advantages: First, it ensures that at least one person will be having a good time. Second it offers an insight into who you are – you know that honesty thing. Third, it means that you’ve set the stage for something you can afford.

Never Ask for a first date for a Friday or Saturday night

These two main , big, serious date nights are too important to place to start. Asking for a first date on a Friday or Saturday is like playing at Wimbledon without a lesson or having ever played on grass or at all. Even people who don’t have dates and haven’t had on for ages are often loathe to admit it to a stranger(And if you haven’t had a first date, you’re still strangers).

Start off with Wednesday or Thursday night, which are nights when people generally don’t have much planned. Also avoid Mondays like the plague. Everybody hates Mondays.
