How to prepare for a blind date

Preparing for a blind date can be a little more challenging than getting ready for a date with someone you already know. It is not unusual to wonder your date’s style and how they will be dressed. However, it is important that you approach this situation as an opportunity for meeting someone new, and you need to focus on having fun rather than looking at it as a daunting task.

Here are a few tips that can help you prepare for a blind date:

Gather as much information as possible beforehand regarding your date

If the blind date has been arranged by a mutual friend, be sure to consult the friend to find out what you need to know about your date. Find out their likes, dislikes, tastes and preferences. For instance, if learn that your blind date is an animal rights activist, avoiding leather pants can certainly save you from an awkward moment. Learning about your date beforehand can help your date run more smoothly.

Consider your date venue

If the entire date is already planned out, then dress accordingly for the things you are going to do. Do not wear jeans if it is a dinner date; by the same token, avoid formal dressing if you are meeting outdoors for hiking or bowling. If you have no clue how the date will be, dress nicely in a way that will let you engage in a range of activities. 

Be comfortable

You may be convinced that you look great in a three-piece suit or stiletto, but whatever you choose to wear should be comfortable enough that you spend the evening enjoying the company of your date rather than thinking about how comfortable you might feel. While you may want to wow your date, you do not want to do so at the expense of your comfort. 

Have an escape plan

You want your date to be as smooth as possible. However, if your date turns out to be too aggressive, or the two of you just do not mesh well, then you need to figure out how to end the date gracefully. You may want to coordinate with a friend to give you a call midway through the date in case you need an excuse to end the date. This is also important for your safety. 

Dating is supposed to be fun, and a blind date can be very exciting and scary at the same time. On one hand, you are meeting someone you do not quite know. On the other hand, you are meeting a potential life partner.
