There are a few tips that you can follow whenever you are planning a blind date. You will find that a blind date can be the most stressful of all dates. Because you have never met this person before you will not be able to know what to expect. This can be especially frustrating if you have never even seen a picture this person before.
Pick a meeting place that will allow you both to get to know each other. It is usually a good idea to pick a spot where when worse comes to worse you can people watch, although maybe not a dogging location. This can be a great conversation starter. Make sure that the place that you pick is one that is easy to get to and won’t be difficult to find.
Make sure that you tell them what you look like and tell them what you’ll be wearing. This is a great way for you to be able to pick each other out of a crowd. Just try not to dress in something where it will be too difficult to pick you out of the crowd even with a description. However, don’t try to stand out too much as this will only end up making a bad first impression.
It can be difficult to make small talk with a total stranger. Try to think of some good ice breakers on your way to the date so that you won’t suffer through too many awkward silences. Also have a few questions in mind that you want to ask them.
