This should be a real date with a fixed time and place.If you're looking online, do your profile with a friend -- this will help you lighten up. Be funny, short and concise, and don't sound too cutesy.
If someone shows an interest in your profile, remember that you are not obligated to respond unless you want to. Anyone who wants to prolong emailing is not interested in a relationship. Avoid this person -- he could be married, in another relationship or just a creep.5. If you are having a great time and don't want to leave, stick to your previous plan.
If he emails or texts (or makes the extra effort to make a phone call!
), respond, but move along and suggest meeting again.
Pay attention to whether there is a good balance in the conversation. If you are interested, say so explicitly upon leaving.
(This may sound too forward, but there is nothing wrong about being clear.)9.
