Blind Dates – Primer

Sometimes two people get to know each other online, and over the phone, but if you want to make it a ‘blind’ date, don’t exchange photos. You may have hit it off so well during your emails and other conversations that you are willing to move on to that first date, sight unseen. Basically, this is considered to be a blind date.

Blind dates are always exciting. You’ve envisioned this person and what they may look like, and now the moment of truth is just around the corner. Of course, with a blind date you two will need a plan so you can easily recognize each other. Make things lighthearted and fun–after all, you’re going to be somewhat nervous anyway, and laughter really is a highly attractive quality. Wear something easy to recognize, like your bright yellow shirt. You don’t want your date walking up to several complete strangers asking them if their name is “Betty” before you are finally found.

It’s best to meet in a public place, perhaps a park where you two could feed the ducks, sit on the swings, or grab a cappuccino. Many towns also have unique outdoor promenades, boardwalks, and art museums. All are ideal choices. If chilly weather forces the date indoors, an afternoon of bowling, a pottery or cooking class, or a few hours of ice skating can be a memorable experience.
