I've been texting this guy on tinder for a little over a week, and he seems really nice, and he invited me to a café this evening. I've never been on a tinder date before, let alone an actual date so I'm quite nervous. I made it clear to him that I wasn't a one-night-stand and he seemed to respect that and genuinely wanted to get to know me.
Is there anything I should be aware of? any tips for going on a date?
Oh, and the oh-so-famous question: What should I wear?

Keep it casual. It is just a cafe, which is great for a first date. You don't know yet if you will click IRL yet, so this way you are not forced to sit for a long time and potentially waste time and money (while he will likely insist to pay, you should still offer and do so if you can).
Dont even treat it as a date! You will be far less scared and be more natural which is great, wait until the actual date to go all out! but by then you already know if you guys click so way less stress! For me, going in thinking we will either click or we won't made my first date one of the best ever!
by the way I am currently dating the same girl I met form tinder 8 months later, so people can do more than just hook up on there!0

ok first of all get there by yourself. Drive your own car and don't let him pick you up before meeting him in person and actually making sure that he is not some phsycho freak stalker.
Meeting up at a cafe is perfect. It is a casual setting and leaves room to bail on the date if it will not go anywhere. You can finish the coffee and leave.
If things go well and you click, then you can go grab a bite maybe.
My advice is to not drink alcohol exessively. Like only as much as you can handle without feeling tipsy.
Dress comfortably but stylish. Like a nice pair of jeans with some nice heels and a nice shirt. Maybe add a cool scarf... That's dressed up enough to go eat or a bar but casual enough to seem effortless. like this maybe:
the most important thing is to not have any expectations of the date, keep it spontaneus and light. Think of it as if you were meeting a friend to catch up.0
