#013 Be open minded.
This tip goes for first dates, multiple dates, and even long-term relationships. You're going to have to compromise on some things, so take the time to be open minded. Maybe your date wants to try a new Thai restaurant she heard about, but you're a picky eater. Experiencing something for the first time together can actually lead to a stronger bond and first impression. Or maybe they don't land on the same side of the political spectrum as you do. If you're sitting there now, chances are there are bigger deal breakers you're worried about. Shrug it off if she doesn't agree now and again.
