Page 1 of 2 Hands down, one of the top relationship questions I’m asked is how to handle blind dates.As I read email after email from panicked daters, I can feel their anxiety about meeting a stranger in such a charged, awkward situation.. After all, this meeting is a big deal and you should be prepared to bring nothing less than your A-Game.I'll take you to a dive bar with amazing burgers to see how you react.If you're flowing with it and cool, we've got a winner.It doesn't matter if you are visually impaired, what skin color you have or what your heritage is.Watch this flick if you want to feel a little better.Again, this is not being phony, it’s being an adult.
Even though his brother spoke highly of him to Melissa (and about Melissa to him), there will always be a level of skepticism from both parties at a blind date. That's why we have to monitor our actions closely to make a great first impression. This is the time to bring out what I call the Interview You. The Interview You changes your whole demeanor; you sit up straighter, you don’t drink as much, you don't stuff your face with rigatoni, and you watch your speech, ditching the sailor mouth. Expecting a blind date to lead to love isn’t fair for either of you, nor is showing up with a pessimistic attitude. Instead of worrying about who you’ll be meeting tonight, ask yourself what you’re looking for in a relationship.Promise yourself a small indulgence after the date, whether it’s a bubble bath, drinks with a close friend, or watching your favourite movie in bed.Sometimes horror stories about them can make for fun discussion, but don't ever bring your ex into the conversation if it's not called for.When I hear about a girl's man, I'm assuming we probably shouldn't be on that date period.Don't ask your friends to tell you everything they can because you can end up with a tainted view of what to expect.
