Modern dating is one of the single people circles of hell, and this is a hill we will die on. But since it’s a thing that many people do, us included, we thought we’d try to make the process a bit better by sharing some hard-won tips. Here, are seven things you’re probably forgetting before a date.
3 good convo starters
Statistically speaking the conversation will, at some point, peter off into an awkward silence. Have a few things at the ready to help resuscitate it.
An easy out
In case those convo starters don’t work. Or your date brings up NFTs.
Raise your hand if you’re part of the “decided to forgo shaving before a date as a deterrent to sleeping with said date, but it didn’t stop you and now you’re in their bathroom using a questionable razor you found on the counter as quickly as possible, so they don’t think you’re pooping” crew. (JK, but not really.)
Tell someone where you are
Because ending up on an episode of Dateline is not the endgame here.
A phone that’s not at 10 percent battery
A gentle reminder to charge your phone!
Focus on whether or not you like them
Not whether or not they like you.
See above tip. Also, this is especially applicable on a first date—as clichéd as it is, try not to put so much pressure on the date.
