4. Don’t forget to act like a lady: Use your manners and be polite. Even if you’re not afraid to be outgoing, it’s still very important to remain classy. If you’re at a restaurant, don’t forget to put your napkin on your lap and use your utensils. Maybe you don’t want to be the girl who just orders a salad, but avoid eating anything that’s inevitably going to find its way all over your face. You never know, he could be a potential boyfriend.
5. Don’t be a bad sport: Even if you’re not having the most amazing date ever, try your best to stick it out. Maybe you don’t have the connection you hoped for, but that doesn't give you the right to be rude and wear your disinterest all over your face. Give the guy the benefit of the doubt and try to keep a smile on. On the other hand, if he happens to be a jerk, there’s no reason you can’t plan a proper escape. Either way, it’s essential that you give the night a fair chance.
