How to Make a Successful Blind Date

Blind dates can be stressful sometimes, or most of the times. Just keep in mind this is a stranger you are meeting for the first time. So it is advisable you meet in an open and public place, though not too crowded your conversation is drowned.


Mind your looks, as first impressions are last impressions. So you should dress to impress.


Talk about generalities. You do not know who this person really is. So desist from revealing too much information about yourself or family. Just be modest and liberal with the facts about you. Also steer clear of past relationships. Don’t forget you are here to try to explore a blind date that that might open new romantic frontiers. You aren’t here to meet Dr. Phil and weep over past heartbreaks.

Keep Focus

Don’t gawk or stutter awkward half-statements. Don’t spill mushroom soup on his lap, or mince her fingers between the lobster-cracker. Ask basic questions, yeah it is ok to talk about the weather too. You might come-off as interrogating if you ask way too pointed questions.

Don’t brag too much and end up revealing your weakness for and lack of control after a few brown bottles. Remember, out of this could develop a relationship. You don’t want to spoil it on the first date by spilling family secrets while under the influence.


Be a gentleman, be a lady. Don’t use crass language, or rush things to give an impression of loose morals. It is a first date, not a one night stand.

In Summary

Be gracious, thankful and offer to split the bill. If you are eager to meet each other again, lingering signs will show, like a long hug; don’t try to kiss, bad etiquette. If the date is successful, the lady might offer her number for repeat performance. Don’t be shy to ask.
