Do be safe when you are meeting someone for the first time, whether you were set up by friends or met online. Plan to meet at a public location and have your own transportation so you don't have to rely on your date. Don't give out too much personal information on the first date, like your address, phone number or where you work. And definitely don't go to a private place with your date. The first date is a time to get to know each other better, so don't rush into anything too personal until you feel comfortable with the person.
Don't monopolize the entire conversation on the first date. It's great to exchange bits of information about each other, like favorite hobbies, what kind of work you do or what foods you like. Just don't have a one-sided dialogue all about you and leave the other person out. Ask your date questions and talk a little about yourself. Make sure the conversation is a two-sided discussion.
A first date should be simple, like meeting for coffee or drinks or even dinner so you are able to talk and get to know each other. If you make it to the second, third or fourth date, you can start getting creative. Going to a sporting event that you both enjoy, attending a concert or going to a movie are all good date ideas. For weekend dates, you might want to go for a hike in the local park, bike, spend the day exploring antique shops or spend a day at the beach if you live near one. The best dates are ones where you participate in activities that you both enjoy.
If you've been dating awhile and are looking for ways to spice up your new relationship, you can try activities that are new to both of you. Go for a spa weekend together where you can enjoy a couple's massage. Shop for sexy lingerie or underwear together - for you and him. Rent a limousine for the night and dress up and go clubbing together. Dates that rev up the libido are excellent ways to spice up your new relationship.
