4 tips to scheduling a first date. As I always say, first dates can be very nerve racking. But with these simple steps the initial dating process will be much easier. 1. First and foremost, call him! You have nothing to lose and guys like when girls tDateA little Initiative. 2. Second, being available makes the process a lot easier. That doesn’t mean to continuously ditch people for dates, but rather, make the time to go on dates. What I hear most is women are not available. 3. Thirdly, be excited! Dates are fun and supposed to be stress-free. 4. Finally, go with the flow. Nothing goes as planned so don’t have a meltdown if your planned date goes a little astray. Hiccups in a first date can lead to great memories or even a second date that you both can laugh and reflect upon!
"Over drinks at a bar my date revealed many interesting details about himself. He used to live on 'the streets.' He claimed to have 'beat Spina Bifida.' He had had a fiancé in Japan who was open to him dating women while he was in the States. After all those amazing revelations I let him know our relationship would not be romantic. As we walked out of the bar he appeared to be suffering from some sort of stomach cramp. He told me he suffered from severe IBS and desperately needed a private bathroom. I have family members who suffer from Crohn's disease so I felt very sympathetic to his situation. I offered to let him use the bathroom in my apartment. After he had finished using the bathroom, he says, 'I know you said we could just be friends and that's fine. But, I was wondering if I could just watch you pee before I leave. I only want to watch.' P.S. — I did not let him watch me pee." -Miranda, 33
