Hello you lovely people! I’ve come seeking advice from you.
I met this guy online, we’ve been talking since early may, it’s been pretty like general stuff, podcasts we’ve listened to, jobs, school etc.
I asked him out last week, he texted me, we’re going on Tuesday. However, I haven’t “dated” since high school. I dated my high school sweetheart for a long time and we broke up a few years back. I’ve just recently gotten back into dating.
Any advice or just positive thoughts are much appreciated!

Just dont put too much pressure on yourself or the evening. You’ll have fun! And if you don’t, you never have to see him again.

Keep an open mind, be yourself and if it’s awful don’t stay to be polite! Also, the internet is full of dates, it takes a little while to find the right one. It’s a numbers game.

Word of advice: have a definite end-point to the date. I know that doesn’t sound like fun, but seriously, I have been on dates where I talked too much and we got to the point where there was nothing left to say (most memorable was a three-hour long lingering). Also, it leads nicely into the promise of a second date, should you like the guy.
Otherwise, be yourself and have fun! PPs are right-with the internet it is a numbers game. 🙂

Make it short. Make it public. Coffee and a walk?
Pick somewhere you don’t normally hang out. You don’t want to spend half the night introducing him to friends.
Have a reason why you have to keep it short and share it at the beginning of the evening- last minute assignment, project deadline- whatever is pertinent.
Next time, meet sooner. When you talk so long, you build up an image in your own mind.

Go into it with no expectations! Make it something casual, if you havent set plans yet. My SO and I were talking for 2 months before we met. We still had 3 hours worth of great conversation on our first date, so I dont think the “meet eary” rule applies to everyone so long as you can go into it without any expetations. My SO is actually the first guy I met from online dating that I didnt
have any expectations for… go figure!
