Listening and Looking for Signs: Listening is critical on the first date. This will help reveal subtleties that may be missed if you're too busy interjecting your own opinions. Keep your ears open to clues that may come out as you feast over pasta or chicken. Is he or she nice to the waiter? Do they have long-term friendships? Are they loyal to their job? Do they give back or volunteer for any charities? A person's faith is not only measured inside a house of worship; a good Christian can also be revealed on a day-to-day basis through their behavior.
