How To Be Successful On A Blind Date

By: Marvin W Perry

Lets assume one of your friends arranged a blind date with you and one of her colleagues. You've been on quite a few dates and you have had your fare share of blind dates as well. So you are somewhat familiar with blind dates. However, your gut instinct tells you that this is unlike any other blind date you have been on. Could this be your last date before you settle down?

Of course it's a natural instinct for you to ask some information about your would-be dates. Yet the friend who set you up wouldn't tell all. In fact, your friend would probably want you to find for yourself the things you want to know about your date. You are both excited and nervous at the same time. But because you trust your friend, you think that nothing bad is going to happen. What's the worst thing that could happen, anyway?

Blind dating puts dating on an all-new different level. In this case, there is an element of anonymity which adds to the excitement. This, however, could also bring fear among daters because more often than not, they do not know what to expect.

So here are a few tips.

If you do not want to leave small details to chance, it is good for you to ask your would-be date's number (especially if you are a guy) and have a small conversation beforehand. Although this is not a general rule, it will somehow give you an idea on pretty much what to expect the moment you go out on a date with this person. This will give you some time to prepare.

Being attracted to a person at the first instance of meeting him or her could happen in real life. Yet this would entail some qualities that you find very appealing the moment you set your eyes on this person. Most likely, the cases of "love at first sight" are based on the physical aspect. So if your date is very attractive it will give you more options. But beauty is a relative word. What others find beautiful may actually look otherwise to you. So you should not go on a blind date expecting to fall in love with the person when you see them for the first time. Either you or your date may be disappointed. Besides, a relationship built on physical aspects alone is not a relationship at all. There is more to love than what is seen by the naked eye.

You can treat it as a friendly date. Start the conversation as if you are talking to a friend. Keep your conversation light. It will take some of the pressure off your shoulders and you will have the opportunity to get to know your date even better. It may not turn out as romantically as you want it to be, but at least your date is a worthwhile experiencenot to mention that you gain a new friend in the process. Who knows, you will end up with that same person someday. Friends can be loversFind Article, too. But only time can really tell.
