- Stay Safe
- Do Not Overly Contact Them
- Try Not to Get Their Life’s History From Facebook
- Meet In A Comfortable Place
- Do Not Mention Your Ex

Make Sure Your Bio Does You Justice
If you want to find a relationship-minded person online, you need to make sure your bio does you justice. Like most people, you are probably not used to talking about your likes, dislikes, and accomplishments. If not, you can always ask a friend or relative to do it for you.
Make Sure Your Profile Picture Does You, Justice
If you think you can get away with having a profile picture that has your face obstructed in any way, you are wrong. The same goes for a profile picture that is ten years old. If you need to, do not hesitate to go and have professional photos taken.
This is often easier said than done. If for some reason you do not feel safe in talking to someone, you should not hesitate to call an end to the conversation. Also, it is a good idea not to go over to his or her place on the first date. You should meet your new prospective partner in person at a local coffee shop or another public place.
Do Not Overly Contact Them
It might be tempting to try and contact the other person too much. But if you can help it, do not do it. Doing so will make you look obsessed and desperate at the same time.
Try Not To Get Their Life’s History From Facebook
Sure, you are interested in looking for any information about your new flame. But to go on Facebook and get his or her life story before the first date is not advisable. After all, you might freak them out if you know too much about them before the first date, and also you may form a wrong impression from the beginning. Let them naturally tell you about themselves.
Meet In A Comfortable Place
Meeting someone in person for the first time can be unnerving. However, to meet them in an ideal place for the first time can make you feel more at ease. Being more relaxed on that first date will send the proper message to your partner.
Do Not Mention Your Ex
Again, it might seem like-minded people to you should be comfortable with you talking about your ex. However, this is not always the case. The more you talk about your ex on that first date, the more it is going to seem that you are still hung up on that person. It is certainly not the message you want to give off on date one.
Offer To Pay
Even if you are the female on the date, this is the 21st century after all. It is perfectly acceptable for the woman to pick up the tab. It is flattering to the men if the woman at least offers to pay. As a rule of thumb, you should never go on a date with less than $200, so that you can contribute to paying for the expenses.
