Dating does and donts

When dating, pop your phone on silent and leave it in your handbag for the duration of your date; it’s important that you are in “date mode”.

Hide distractions such as phones and tablets from yourself, switch off from the world and enjoy the company of someone new.

‘Always seem excited about the future, not laden down with the past.’ ‘Do tell a funny, embarrassing story about yourself. If you like him, save it till after sex.’ What am I going to wear? ‘He asked you out because he fancied you,’ says Sullivan, ‘So wear something that’s sexy and comfortable.’ (Yes, it is possible, no not your silky pyjamas ).

Ahead of a big date, you might find that everyone from your best friend to your great grandmother is keen to offer you some dating advice, and with so many different opinions flying about it can be difficult to know what you should and shouldn’t do.

If your date does pick up the tab, make sure you insist on footing the bill on the next date, or at least buying a post-date round of drinks.

If you’re not having a good time or something doesn’t feel quite right, cut your losses and call it a night – there are plenty more singles out there who cannot wait to meet you!

Steer your conversation away from the negatives and keep your conversation upbeat and positive, it will make you seem more interesting and fun to be with.

While you may be keen to fill every silence with chatter, if you allow your date to take their time with their stories; you might learn a thing or two.

‘Do aim for something to do on a first date, like a walk by the river,’ says relationship and first date tip expert Elizabeth Sullivan, aka The Love Mentor. The more at ease you are the more likely he’ll follow suit. ‘Do smile more than usual and laugh if you like him,’ says Sullivan.

‘Pick a route where you know there’s a nice pub and, if it’s going well, stop off. ‘Make sure he knows you’re enjoying yourself.’ (Do we need to spell out that there are limits to the smiling/laughing thing?

They’re simple and easy, but these tips are the difference between a happy experience and a painful one! The person you’re talking to on the other side of your computer, tablet, or cell phone screen may seem trustworthy, but you actually have no idea if they are or not.

Even if they don’t end up being an axe murderer, it will be much easier to ward off any unwanted sexual advances if you meet them in public!

Knowing even just a little bit about your date beforehand will give you all the conversation starters you’ll need to keep those awkward silences at bay.
