Tony DeRosso of OnlineDatingMatches.com offers the following tips:
If you haven't dated in a while, buy yourself some new clothes before you go out on your first date. Your confidence level will rise accordingly.
When talking to someone you meet online, don't spend hours upon hours talking on the phone or via instant messaging. Save some discovery for the actual first date, lest you run out of new things to talk about.
Compliments are nice; too many compliments is pandering.
First-date jitters are completely normal -- don't take it as a bad thing. If you have fifth-date jitters, though, something might be amiss.
If you go out on a blind date or meet someone on the Internet and it just isn't working for you, do the honorable thing and tell him or her as soon as possible.
