First dates make you nervous, so a blind date is that times 10! You’ve never met or seen the person before so who knows what to expect? Are they weird? Is it safe?! It can be scary and overwhelming, but you have to get through the nerves to see if it could actually be good.

Here are some tips for your next blind date to ensure your safety and to help the nerves!


Tell Your Friend Where You’re Going

God forbid something goes wrong, at least a close friend will know your location.  Safety first!  We hear a lot of horror stories about Tinder dates but not all of them are like that! Play it safe and let a friend know where you are. Send them your location because that’s the easiest and safest bet.


Go to a public place.

Date

If you’re meeting the person for the first time, you definitely going to want to go to a public place and not their house. That way you can leave, and you have people surrounding you if something goes wrong. A restaurant is a great option.


Start off with a phone call or facetime

Facetime

Talk to your date on the phone or facetime before you meet so you can hear their voice and get to know them! It will make the initial meeting in person less awkward, and you can get a feel for them.

Be authentic

Be true to who you are! Everyone is going to be different in person versus online.


Meet up with a friend after

If your date goes horrible, then at least you have plans with a friend to get ice cream or a drink and talk it over! Plus, if the date is going horribly, you have an escape plan!


No alcohol

It can be tempting especially because it’ll calm the nerves, but for a blind date you’re going to want all your wits about you if you’re meeting someone in person for the first time! Besides safety, you want to be able to know if you’re interested in your date!


Check your teeth

Make sure you don’t have something in your teeth because that is the utter worst.  You’re meeting someone for the first time, and you’re going to be chatting with them.  Brush your teeth before just to be extra safe and have fresh breath.

Wear your favorite outfit

Ok, if you’re favorite outfit is sweats than wear your second favorite, LOL. You want to wear something that shows your style and something that will make you feel confident. Show off your best features and dress to impress!


Have an open mind.

So maybe your date gets there, and they’re not what you expected, but they’re so hilarious in person. Keep an open mind and keep expectations neutral.  We would love to have Liam Hemsworth show up as our blind date, but that’s probably not going to happen.


Don’t complain.

Giphy

Simple. No one likes that.


Be a good listener.

Being a good listener is extremely important!  Listen to what they have to say, and hopefully, they will listen to what you have to say. It’s also essential that each person gets time to talk!


Split the check.

This is the first date so splitting the check is the best option. You don’t want them to think that you assume they’re paying so at the very least, offer!  But, if they insist on paying for all of it then don’t badger them.  Just say thank you and move on!

Listen to your gut

Leaving

Giphy

If you feel like leaving because you’re creeped out, or the date is horrible then go! Listen to your gut instinct. It’s okay to leave if you’re uncomfortable, just be polite about it! Even blame it on a friend in need if you have too.


Remember chemistry can grow

If you’re not totally attracted to your date on the first meeting give it a chance. Humor or intelligence can make a person more attractive, and that can take more than one date to shine through. If you got good vibes from the person, then there is hope that you can click with them!


Don’t take it personally if it goes bad

Giphy

If the date goes wrong don’t take it personally.  Not everyone you meet is going to like you, and you’re not going to like everyone you meet.   If you don’t click with your blind date, it’s not the end of the world. Learn from it and trust that you’ll find someone better!
