Online dating and first date
I don’t care if you’re checking messages or whatever, but that just made me feel like they had zero interest in me.” —"I’m just as nervous as you, if not more so.
It’s easy to start overthinking the date and what to wear and what to say.
I know people who really get into exactly the time they should show up.
Like, they like to show up exactly 11 minutes late, so they don’t look too eager, but they don’t look rude or like they tried to show up late. There are all these weird rules in place and you can get into your own head. Either your date will like you or they won’t, and if they don’t, who fucking cares?
Nowadays, when most first dates come from an algorithm match, meeting for the first time can feel a little awkward.
Especially when you have no clue what the person across the table is thinking.
While the starting point for my advice is The Rules book series by Ellen Fein and Sherrie Schneider, I also layer in my own strategies—the tips I share with private clients and that I followed, personally, to date for marriage.
I guess my advice is: Feel free to say no to date ideas.
If you feel like you’ve clicked online, then most likely you’ll click in person too; but if not, you know that you gave it a chance and will have no regrets.
Take a leap of faith in your online connection and allow the chance for something truly great to develop.
