20 Rules For Your First Online Date [EXPERT]
... featuring tips from YourTango Experts Jenn Burton & Dina Colada!

6. Don't forget to flirt. Being playful and fun is a huge plus with men because they start to feel good around you. Men love fun banter, but keep the teasing to a minimum. Also, don't be afraid to disagree with him. A little argument can stir up the romantic tension. —Jenn Burton

7. Don't reveal too much too fast. You've got a lifetime to get to know your date. He doesn't need to know every detail of your past the first time you meet. "But Jenn," you say, "he should just accept me the way I am." He will ... if you give him a couple of dates to warm up first. So take your time to reveal your inner weavings. You are a fun mystery to be unfolded. —Jenn Burton

 

8. Let him pay. If he would like to pay for the date, let him. There is no obligation beyond a date just because he offered to pay and you accepted. Men who really like you typically offer to pay for the date. Men who really like you enjoy paying for a date. —Jenn Burton

9. Limit yourself to two drinks. Also, keep it in a public place if you have no intention of having a sexual encounter. There's nothing less sexy than a drunk date ... except regret. —Jenn Burton

10. Thank him. Let him know that you appreciate him taking you out on such a fun date. It will open the door to him asking you out again.  —Jenn Burton

11. Expose yourself, but don't get naked. Don't show up to the date in a streaker-style black trench coat with nothing but a garter-belt and stockings underneath. Let your first date get acquainted with vulnerable you with your clothes on. Be your sweet, open, carefree self. —Dina Colada

12. Savor the moment. Be present with your date. Don't be picking out wedding invitations while he's picking up the check. He deserves your full attention on the first date. Keep the smart phone in your clutch and don't even think about checking your Facebook notifications. You are here to get to know each other. You deserve good eye contact and total awareness of each other. —Dina Colada
