Tips for Being Safe on the first date: the fourth and final installment in a series
By Adrian Drower, Ask Adrian Blogger and No Boundaries participant
All good things must come to an end, and it is now time I take my leave. So here is the last installment in the series of my online dating tips. I hope you have found this series helpful. Thank you for reading!
Keep it simple; meet this person somewhere public, like a coffee shop or a park, where you can talk and get to know each other
Keep the past in the past
Trust your instincts
Take it slow; until you know each other better, keep it public
Stay at a steady pace; it is a great way to ease the mind
Don’t press your luck or force your way into someones’ life
If the date isn’t going well, you can just leave
If the online magic is no longer there, find an easy and polite way to let them down and just leave.
I do have one last bit of advice for you: Try to remember, perfection is overrated, experience is the new perfect. Think of it like this, practice does not make perfect; practice gives you experience.
