So you got a date, superb! But are you a little intrigued as to who and what they are?
Of course you are!
What better way to find out for yourself by simply entering their name into a simple to use web page! But don’t go Googling your date before you meet them for the first time because you’ll look like a psycho when you reel off everything you know about them, or correct them mid-sentence.
Save the Googling for after the date, get to know them first then find out if they are full of crap. It’ll save you a load of hassle in the long run!
But remember that you are probably being Googled too so be careful with those little white lies about being your own boss etc… need I say any more!
If you ask someone on a date and they say ‘maybe’ they are saying ‘YES, but I think I am being funny by playing hard to get’.
This guy has clearly got the ‘playing it cool’ concept off to a tee even naming an album after it.
Let them enjoy the moment in the knowledge they are actually tempted by your offer and highly likely to say ‘yes’. If you need some other pointers to ensure they are interested try reading my article on body language here.
In extreme cases ‘maybe’ can mean that there are terms attached to a date, for instance; no touching, snogging, pet names etc… you can expect to be read the rules if they are there.
If however they just say maybe and then turn away, they want a chase. It’s up to you whether or not you do the chasing, it could pay off, but these sort of people normally have such low self esteem that they are actually looking for more of a confidence boost. Only you can judge thus, but beware that if you do go out with them they could be high maintenance!
I found a hilarious video directed by a Mr V. He uncovers what we really mean behind all the niceties on a first date. He’s spot on!

Only ask one of these questions should you never wish to see them again and end the date early!
• Are you OK with one night stands?
• Fancy a hit on my crack pipe in the loos?
• Would you ever contemplate a threesome?
• Do you spit or swallow?
The most common question I am asked by singles on the dating scene is what topics of conversation should be raised on a first date.
This is in fact the first problem – you’re thinking too much about the date and therefore you won’t find yourself relaxing and enjoying it so much. YES, you should have an idea about things you want to know about them as well as what you are prepared to share early on, but don’t script the date as you will come across unnatural.
Who knows what they are like and what they may want to talk to you about so don’t worry about it, you’ll only end up coming away kicking yourself and wishing you asked about this and that! You will either get o with them or you won’t and a scripted date almost always ends in disaster.
However, here are some topics you may want to raise on the first date as you will more than likely share them in common and both share opinions, so less likely to dry up:
Job and ambitions
Trips and holiday experiences
Food & cooking
