First Date Do's and Don'ts

If your first interaction with a potential mate is via the internet, meeting in person for the first time is a very exciting time. The tips below will help you have a safe and successful first date.


  • Meet in a public place at a decent hour during which lots of people will be around. A lunch date is a great idea.
  • Be on time. You don't want your date's first impression of you to be a person who is late.
  • Limit alcohol consumption or abstain entirely until you know the person better.
  • Use your own transportation. It's never a good idea to get into someone's personal vehicle on a first date. If you are unable to drive yourself, take a taxi.
  • Tell at least one friend or family member the name of the person and the place where you are going to meet and and arrange to "check-in" with them after each of the first few dates.
  • Allow for equal talk time. You don't want to be perceived as someone who must have all of the attention.
  • Carry a fully charged cell phone with easily accessible emergency numbers.
  • Leave beverages or personal belongings unattended. It is important to hold on to purses, wallets, jackets with pockets that contain items that could reveal personal information about you, like a driver's license, credit cards, ATM receipts, etc.
  • Pretend to be someone you’re not.
  • Do not meet at your house or place of work, or give that information out until you have had a good opportunity to know the other person better.
  • Go home with someone, even if it feels like everything's going great. You have not spent enough time with them enough to assess whether your safety is at risk.
