Dating 'The Safe & Fun Way
DATING. Smiles all over. If you really had to go through
lot of tribulations, this adds spice to the humour. They
become stories which the family loves to laugh about at
dinner. However, If you want a hassle-free date, you need
to sort out your priorities first.
To get the maximum out of your date, you need to plan it
well. A safe approach is not to try out too many things.
There are no binding principles on dating. Still some facts
would help enhance your excitement and also reduce the
possibility of dating a wrong prospect.
1) First, conduct a telephonic conversation. Generally,
meeting through ads and online, invites undesirable
elements. Therefore, invest time over the phone to reach a
level of surety about your prospective date. This saves
time you would have otherwise wasted on a blind date.
2) Certain inquiries regarding their type and place of
work, their residence and most importantly, their marital
status is mandatory. They may sound highly mundane but
these actually help in creating a better understanding.
3) Your first date should be absolutely simple. You should
restrict it to something between one to three hours. It
will save you the awkwardness of spending time when things
do not seem to be working out between you. It will also
save you the embarrassement of ending the date so soon.
4) Be careful about the place for your date. It should be
convenient spot for both of you. It should not be very
formal nor too informal. A cool location where you can
talk, hear and understand each other.
5) Leave contact details of your date with a close friend.
It should be done by both the parties as it is to do with
your safety and security. Disaster never comes in knocking,
it simply barges in.
6) Remember to go dutch on the expenses of the first date
so that no one has to bear the financial obligation alone.
You will have ample opportunity to show your chivalry if
things work out favourably.
7) The word dating, years later, evokes nostalgia as each
date brings you closer to someone with whom you would like
to spend the rest of your life.
So stop pondering over these guidelines. Get going!
