So you’ve met someone online, have started corresponding and the first dinner date is now on the agenda. Just as you’ve put time and effort into joining the online dating site and creating a great profile, it pays to put some thought into the location of this imortant first dinner. And the obvious choice may not always be the best.


It’s common practice to imagine our ideal partner, and with a first date on the agenda, the anticipation of meeting someone who might be ‘the one’ can often lead to unrealistic expectations, or make us so nervous that it all goes awry. First dates can be stressful affairs for both participants, so it’s good to remember this, and avoid being too quick to judge someone negatively.


Meeting anyone, let alone that special someone, can sometimes seem an insurmountable challenge. If you’ve passed the bar and club stage, have limited options at work, and are yet to spot any potentials at the gym, then perhaps online dating is for you. While it may feel a little strange at first, there are some definite advantages.

Just as the cover might first draw us to a book, or we might notice photos in a magazine before we’ve even seen the headline, the images you choose to include with your online dating profile can be the thing that entices potential partners to read further. So it pays to get the photos just right. If you’re thinking of taking some new ones for the occasion, here are a few suggestions:


When you start dating someone for the first time, there can be plenty of nerves and even anxiety for both of you. Adding to the equation with a disaster ridden date won’t help the relationship get moving in the right direction so it can pay to be prepared by always having a Plan B in mind. Taking ten minutes out before a new date to think of an alternate plan should things start to go awry, could just be your saviour.
