Patti Stanger, the Million Dollar Matchmaker, provides the following relationship tips or rules for dating, including four things you should do and three things you should not do when dating. Especially on the first date.
Make time. Being too busy will never get you a second date.
Don’t fall too fast. Don’t create fantasies your date can’t live up to.
Stay mysterious. Don’t overshare. Let your date ask questions.
Don’t bring up ancient history. Nobody wants to listen to a train-wreck. No talking about your ex.
Think beyond the first date. Seal the deal. Make plans for the second date.
Don’t get drunk. Have no more than two drinks so you stay clear.
Get physical. It’s okay to kiss on the first date. Pay attention to your intuition.
