Having a list of questions or things you hope to discuss before a date is a great way to calm nerves. By being proactive, you're creating opportunities for thoughtful conversation.
Include a variety of topics that will allow for an organic flow of discussion. Avoid hot topics or those that would otherwise make someone uncomfortable.
1 Come Prepared
2 Have A Backup Plan
Even our best-laid plans can fall apart, leaving us lost or confused about what to do next. A backup plan will help you recover should something arise and keep your head and energy at their best.
This plan should include alternative questions, venues, or activities should your date have an aversion to certain foods, topics, or destinations. The ability to pivot when in a pinch is a great tool that can quickly change a bad experience to something great.
3 go with the flow
If all else fails, let go and go with the flow.
Dating is stressful, and very few people consider it the fun, exciting experience it should be.
Should you find yourself swimming in uncharted waters, take a breath, recall your "why," and lean into the basics.You know you're a great catch who many would want, so bring it! Everything else is extra.
