Overcoming The Fear Of Dating

Almost all of us have a bit of anxiety when preparing for dates, but some people have severe difficulty with this. Overcoming the fear of dating is an important step in the dating process. Our tips can help you feel more at ease and make dates  less worrisome.

Major metropolitan centers like New York City can be intimidating, but Premier Match can make the process much easier by providing appropriate dates and making the arrangements for the date. In addition, our coaching and relationship counseling can assist people that are nervous about getting out there and put them at ease.  So suppose you go out on a date and you don’t find instant chemistry with the person. There is no harm in this. You’re now a little more comfortable putting yourself out there (practice helps you feel less anxious) and you’ve met someone new and interesting. Meeting different kinds of people helps you grow and learn more about yourself and others. It also helps fine tune your criteria as to what you are looking for in a partner; what traits mesh well or do not mesh well with yours.

Remember to enjoy yourself. Chances are you will have a great time and build a new relationship with someone meaningful. And if the date didn’t go well—what’s the worst that can happen? You spent an hour or two with someone exercising your social skills and getting out of the house.  Overall, to succeed in dating is just putting yourself out there, meeting new people and expanding your social skills and your social circles. You might be very surprised at what you find out about yourself and who you meet in the process.

Good First Date Conversation Starters

You’re all dressed and ready for your first date with someone new. You look good and you’re aware of proper date etiquette and procedure. But if you don’t know what to talk about, how will your date have a good time? Great dating conversation is often a subject that gives singles the most anxiety. Preparing some good first date conversation starters is a great way to make sure things get off to a good start.

Instead of bringing exact lines of conversation to remember, think of a few topics you could bring up if chatting runs to a standstill. Avoid tedious and obvious topics like commenting about the weather. Instead, choose topics you both can discuss like mutual friends, common interests, and goals for the future.  Don’t make a mental checklist as your date talks about what you like and don’t like about them. Simply enjoy the process of getting to know someone new, no matter how different they might be from you. As always in polite conversation, avoid topics like politics and religion that might prove divisive.

Keep your conversation light and fun. Don’t linger on one topic for too long, especially if you’re the one doing the talking. It’s alright to talk about yourself. After all, your date is there to find out who you are. Don’t get caught up only in what you have to say. Make sure you are always inviting your date into the conversation.

Don’t dread running out of things to say when you meet someone new. Bring along some good conversation starters and enjoy your first date!

How To Have A Great Date: 3 Things to Remember

Dating can be difficult, unsettling, or even scary. But it can also be exciting and a way for us to know ourselves better. Sometimes we can forget that.  So how do you have a great date, instead of just hanging out with someone and hoping for the best? Keep these three tips in mind and you won’t be asking how to have a great date again.

  1. Put the other person first. We often spend so much time worrying about going on a date that we forget the other person is going on it with us. Inquire about your date’s life, interests and goals for the future. This is a great way to find common ground and let your date express his or her personality. Make sure your date is having a good time and you’ll be having one yourself.
  2. Go the extra mile. Mind your manners at all times. Men: open the door for your date. Ladies: offer to pay for dinner. Show your date courtesy and respect and the same will be shown to you.
  3. Don’t forget to have a good time. After all, dating is about seeing what people are all about and whether you would want to spend more time with them.  If you’re too caught up in making sure everything goes perfectly to plan instead of letting a memorable night unfold — well, how would you feel if the tables were turned? Dating is about having fun, so leave your worries at home and enjoy yourself. After seeing your enthusiasm, your date will do the same.
