Blind Date

Very few singles have ever gone through life without having a friend, relative or coworker try to set them up on a blind date. While a blind date is sometimes referred to as a 'first impression' date, people shouldn't associate so much pressure with a blind date. While it is always a good idea to look nice on any first date including a blind date, it is far more important for people to be themselves. If a person is seriously looking for a person to have a relationship with, they are not going to want to attract a person for pretend behavior and unnatural looks.

Committing to a blind date doesn't have to be a frightening thing and avoiding blind dates altogether could mean a person could be missing out on meeting someone very special. Since someone a person knows sets up most blind dates, they are more likely to be able to connect two people with similar interests and ideas. While physical chemistry is impossible to predict, a blind date set up by someone who has some knowledge about what two people have in common is a great starting point.

Once a person has committed to a blind date, they will want to limit the information they know ahead of time about the individual they will be going on a date with. The less a person knows about their blind date, the fewer preconceived expectations he or she can develop about the other person. Make the blind date a short date by having drinks or meeting for ice cream. If the blind date isn't destined to work out, the two people involved don't have to sit through a long, drawn out dinner or other extended activity in order to get to the end of the date without being rude.

Dress nicely for a blind date, but don't dress uncomfortably as it will be apparent to those around you including your date. While making a first impression can put a lot of pressure on a person, being yourself during a blind date is more important in getting to know each other. A person's sense of humor can be quite individual and not everyone will understand or 'get it' right away, so refraining from too many jokes during the first blind date can be beneficial. The most important thing to remember in trying to make a blind date a success no matter what is to keep an open mind throughout the entire experience.
