The whole point with a site like Cupid’s is to be an online platform to connect people. Kind of like a cocktail party. Once you’ve met and discovered there’s chemistry (which you do fairly quickly) it’s time to meet up in real life. Don’t waste time talking for someone online for weeks on end - rather meet up as soon as possible to establish if you get along in real life.
When it comes to first date tips, here are a few for you:
- Keep it short. A drink, or coffee is perfect as there’s no pressure to entertain someone through a long dinner.
- Meet in a public place where you’re both comfortable.
- Try not to have expectations, as people are rarely exactly as you imagined them to be. Sooner or later you’ll meet the right person, but in the meantime, enjoy meeting new people and making new friends.
- First impressions are rarely right, so try to meet everyone for a second date when you’re both less nervous and have a bit more time to get to know each other.
