If you decide to go on a blind date, it is very important to talk to your date before. This will help you get a better feel of who they are and what they are about. Just have a quick 10 minute call, where you can also finalize on the date details.
Since the blind date has been set up by your friends, chances are that they’ve really made you sound amazing. In addition, they may have made your date sound perfect for you to entice you to go out. Just keep an open mind and have very low expectations on the blind date.
A blind date is meant to be a short meeting where you check each other out and decide if you have a romantic future. That said, a full dinner date would put too much pressure on you. Instead, go for a simple coffee date to break the ice.
Sometimes a blind date doesn’t go as expected and that’s okay. The ‘perfect match’ according to your friends may not really be what you’re looking for. If you fail to click with your date, it may be that you need to try again.
