  • I dont have formal rules, and much depends on what she is comfortable with. No dubious places or illegal stuff, I guess.

  • -Have fun!
    -Don't be late or keep the other person waiting
    -Be a good listener and conversationalist! Don't just talk about yourself the whole time, but be willing to share some things about yourself as well so you get to know each other
    -Smile and laugh; it puts the other person at ease
    -Be polite
    -Don't check your phone or text throughout the date! Especially your first time meeting someone. That is one of my biggest pet peeves.

  • No sticking your face in your phone. Unless there’s an emergency or someone’s constantly calling you (emergency), no phones!

  • My parents always told me
    -Dont talk about Batman
    -Dont dance like Ellen DeGeneres
    -Dont curl your hair because it looks like Nelly Olson's

  • A few obvious guidelines when meeting a stranger and seeing if there is a connection:

    - safety first. Meet in a public place, keep my eyes out for risk, make sure she feels comfortable.

    - no cell phones. Once she is in eyeshot of meeting, the phone goes in my pocket. I may check it if I go to the restroom, otherwise I am there to spend time with her.

    - be present and authentic. Dates are fun. I want to be myself which may come off as goofy or quirky; gives her a chance to get to know the real me.

    - polite manners. Typical behavior of a gentleman: holding doors and chairs, compliments and please/ty, dining manners and keep smiling.

    - take action. I always plan the first date and have an idea of how the night will flow and what activities we will be doing. That said I can be spontaneous and if I feel a connection want to show her both physically (touch/kiss/eye contact) and emotionally that I am excited to get to know her more.

    - build for the future. I don’t want to tell my life story on the first date and because I have value she needs to work and bit to earn my trust and vice versa. Keep some things to myself for future dates and respect her boundaries when she communicates then.

  • -Have my own transportation
    -Meet them at the place
    -Don’t go anywhere with them alone
    -Don’t leave my drink alone
    -Don’t let them walk me to my car
    -Make sure they’re not following me

    This seems basic but I just try to treat a date as any person I’m getting to know. I’ve been on a date where it felt more like a job interview and dates in which they were so nervous we sat in silence for too long for far too often

    Tell the truth
    Listen to her
    Be serious
    Have some sense of humor
    Make her feel that she's the only female around
    Appreciate her looks, because she spent hours working on herself to go out with you... and ta ta that's it 😀

  • 1. Don’t be on yo damn phone unless it’s super urgent or you’re gonna take a cute picture of us.
    2. For the time we are together, I will make you my top priority and you will make me yours.
    3. No PDA other than maybe a kiss on the cheek or holding hands.

  • Be in the moment, pay attention, don't put any effort unless she does it, walk away if she is drama or contribute with negative energy or for that matter takes energy.
    She must take initiative to get anything physical.
    If I have to pay for her walk away without paying for both.

  • Be yourself, not an altered version of yourself. Compliment them, flatter them. Try to know them a bit before going out.
