Do you have a friend or friends that are trying to set you up on a blind date? Many people find blind dating to be the most nerve wrecking of all. Many you have been on several blind dates that ended in a complete disaster. Or, maybe you have never even been on a blind date before. Whatever the situation is, you don’t need to be so hesitant and worried. It is possible that on this blind date, you could meet the man or woman of your dreams. So, the next time your friend of friends offers to set you up, you can be completely prepared and confident with this blind date guide.

Do Not Set Any Expectations

It can be really hard not to set some kind of expectations for date, but the truth is that most of the time expectations just lead to disappointments. Don’t expect to meet the person of your dreams, but also don’t expect to meet your unattractive next-door neighbor. It is almost a given that you are going to try to come up with images of the person in your head, but you really need to try to stray away from this.

Get Right Mentally

You have to think of a blind date as a good thing rather than a burden. A night out on the town is always great and it is even better to meet new and exciting people. It is absolutely vital to realize that nothing is truly expected. You don’t have to fall in love with this person, but the both of you could end up becoming really great friends if nothing else. With this in mind, you should ignore the pressure and just try to have a good time!

Making Contact Before The Contact

It is always a good ideal to make some kind of contact before the date. Whether it is a phone call, text, or e-mail, you want to make some kind of contact before the first meeting. During this conversation, you can find out what kind of activities that he or she likes doing or even if he or she has any suggestions for the date. Just keep in mind that while it is always good to take the other person’s feelings and emotions into account, you never want to come off as too passive.

Don’t Show Up Smelling Like Cigarettes

Since this is a blind date and your date will know very little to nothing about you, and the same will apply for him or her, you need to be careful with your bad habits. For instance, if you are a smoker you don’t want to show up for the date smelling like a cigarette. At the same time, you don’t want to show up with a cigarette in your mouth. If your date is a non-smoker, then it is highly likely that they will find this unattractive. Your best option is to go with e juice. Since it mostly comes out as a vapor when exhaled, it doesn’t produce as much smell. This ensures you’ll smell great for your date.
