What is the best way to plan my first date with a member?

After talking extensively on the site or the app, you have decided to meet up with another member. We strongly suggest that any first date should be in a public place. Use your own method of transportation to and from the date.

Choose a safe, public location where you will feel comfortable such as a cafè. Don’t be tempted to meet at your date’s house and don’t invite them to meet at yours.

Take the time to get to know the other person and go at your own pace. Going for drinks is often more relaxed than committing to a full dinner and you have the opportunity to end the date quickly if you need to. If the date goes well, you will be more open to planning a slightly more original second date.

However, if you both don’t want the date to end, you can always choose go for an impromptu dinner afterwards.

  • What should I wear?

It is always nice to dress up for a first date but still be yourself.

Do not go overboard, find something subtle and comfortable that reflects your personality.

You will already know some interests you share after talking on the site, so you can use these as as a conversation starter.What should I talk about on the first date?

Try not to plan too much in advance, be spontaneous!

  • What if I’m nervous?

A first date is a big step and it is normal that you will be slightly nervous. Just remember that your date will more than likely be feeling the same way. You’ll quickly forget about being shy and feel at ease.

  • Need more advice?

There are several articles and lots of advice in the ‘Advice’ section that you can access at the foot of every page.
