So I’m on match.com and a week ago I received an email from this girl. I was really surprised to be the one receiving the email, I thought most women liked to be approached first but I guess I was wrong. So we have been emailing for the past week, hadn’t talked on the weekend until last night. I think she went home by her family for the weekend. So I’m taking her out to dinner. So I was just wondering if is any advice out there for me. I’m trying to be positive about it because it seems like we have a lot of things in common. But I’m the kind of person who sees the glass half empty and thinks she just is going out to dinner with me because she couldn’t say no. Hopefully I’m wrong.

Be yourself. If she sticks around for any amount of time she will see yhe real you anyway. Dont expect too much. it is a first date and try to relax and have a good time

Be polite! Be yourself! Whatever you don’t put on airs or be someone you’re not, if she doesn’t see through it right away when she eventually does it will damage your relationship (and possibly end it). Finding common things to laugh at is already great. Understand that while you’ve been hurt by your past relationships, so has she. You don’t have to go crazy expensive to be romantic, holding open the door and a single flower (daisies can be more romantic than a dozen roses) can do wonders. Don’t think of it as going out on a date, think of it as hanging out with a friend.

Be confident. If you aren’t, then fake it until you make it….going in there assuming she is going bc she couldn’t say no is setting yourself up for failure. She doesn’t know you, or owe you anything. She said yes because she wants to go to dinner with you.

@Packers12: Just be yourself, smile and have fun. I used to feel that way about myself and luckily I found that someone who really wanted me for me. Just go, smile and breathe. You will be fine. Good luck! Have a great time!!
