#051 Keep the first date short and sweet.
Unless you’ve known the person for a while, it is best to keep the first date short. What can be worse than a date with someone who is boorish, rude, inappropriate or uninteresting? A long date with someone who is boorish, rude, inappropriate or uninteresting. So, opt for something that gives you an easy out, like grabbing a cup of coffee, or an informal lunch. If your date does turn out to be a jerk, or you just don’t click, it will be much easier to exit stage left. If, on the other hand, the two of you have an amazing time, keeping the date short will leave your date wanting more!
