A lot of persons don’t have the time and patience to wait for the right person to connect with them automatically via matters of the heart these present days. Having relationships are quite difficult as well as keeping one. Most times, the people we admire or want to date have already gotten themselves some other persons they claim to love. This could leave us focusing on other aspects of our lives. Other times, one is too busy with jobs or education attainment and their love lives suffers. This allows relatives, friends or third parties to set up blind dates.
A blind date is a social engagement between two people who have not previously met, usually arranged by a mutual acquaintance. Relatives and friends believe they know who is most suitable to make the best couple for you, so they try everything in their own power to match-make you with someone. Lately, we have sites that help with matchmaking. Yeah! Dating sites. All you have to do is make yourself available after fixing the venue, it could be in a coffee shop or at dinner or any other place you comfortable with.
After a blind date, the result is either positive or negative, negative in the sense that the blind date must have gone well but the person isn’t your type or the blind date didn’t go well at all. Positive in the sense that the date may or may not have gone well but you want to hook up again. Blind date Failures are as a result of obstacles in our mind; how the other person would look or act, how they would react to how we look and act, or how the date would go and what our escape strategy would look like.
Blind dates are completely awkward for both parties, be warm and welcoming. They are also likely to go well, if we set our expectations to neutral. Tare your mind to nothing at all, not nothing per se, average. Don’t expect too much and don’t expect too less, just normal, to avoid disappointment. Choose a nice and comfortable venue for the date. Often times than not, ladies always want the man to make the choice, to know what his tastes are like. Some smart men might give three to five options for the lady in question to make the final decision and I think with that, the chemistry could begin or it could make the blind date to be much anticipated.
For the guys, they should dress to impress. Ladies always love looking good when they go on dates but I doubt it is the same with men. Most men buy dresses that are not even their size. Worse part is, they wear them to the blind date. Trust me that is a very big turn off for gorgeous ladies. Arrive early to get the big field advantage; getting acquainted to the environment if you’ve never been there before. The two parties involved should try to calm their nerves as they make conversations. Try not to ask too personal questions but be a good listener and always give the other person the chance to express themselves; don’t be judgemental. After the date, always leave on a high note and make your feelings known at this stage; so there would be no misconception about the date. In case you would love to hang out one more time or vice versa.
Blind dates are indeed exciting because you may have no idea about who the person you are meeting is, or what the person looks like, what interests the person, sometimes you don’t even know the person name. All you need is to be at exact time at the particular place. Isn’t that romantic?
I feel blind dates could lead to a very serious relationship, if the two parties involved are open minded and simultaneous. When you go for a blind date and the person intrigues you, in the process try to have subsequent dates. One could earn himself or herself a serious relationship. There is no lay down rule or regulation to finding love or to having a very serious relationship.
