#009 Don't get drunk on the first date.
Here's the thing... We're not saying don't drink on the first date, but definitely don't have too many drinks. You want to be alert and present on your date, not slurring your words and spilling everything onto your date. If you usually need a little "liquid courage," order one drink that can last the whole date/dinner and a water. You won't leave a good impression if they need to call your friends to take you home.
