Blind dates can be nerve-wracking, but they can also be fun. They are usually set up by a mutual acquaintance who thinks there is potential for a relationship. Choose a venue where you can have a good conversation and go into the date with zero expectations. Be yourself and have fun, and if it doesn’t work out, there will be other opportunities.

Blind dates can be a little scary, especially if you’ve never done it before. Just the thought of dating someone you may have never talked to or seen a picture of can make retreating to the couch with a good book seem like the best option. While blind dates can be a little nerve-wracking, you might end up having a good time.

A blind date is usually set in motion by someone who is mutually known on both sides. This person believes there is promise that a relationship can begin and blossom and that one is potentially a good match for the other. When dating a blind date, keep in mind the individual who is setting you up. This person would not want to be embarrassed by your actions, so you should do everything possible to make a positive impression not only on yourself, but on the matchmaker as well.

When setting up the venue for your initial appointment, consider going somewhere where you can have a good conversation without yelling at each other about the noise. Think about meeting in a place where the date won’t be short, but where it won’t last an exorbitant amount of time either. There is an opportunity to make a good impression, extend the date if you wish, or leave if it doesn’t work out.

During blind dates, it’s a good idea to go into the date with zero expectations, which reduces the chance of being disappointed. When you have expectations, you can try to get the other person to meet them instead of experiencing them for who they are and go from there. Think of blind dates as part job interview and part friendly hookup. Be optimistic, be presentable, and reveal enough about yourself without revealing too much.

While blind dates aren’t for everyone, plan on giving it a try at least once. While it may seem intimidating, keep your cool and see it as an opportunity to have fun and get to know someone previously unknown. Be yourself, be positive, and if it doesn’t work out, it doesn’t mean it’s the end of your love life. There is the potential for many more dates with others in the future.
