Here is an excerpt from the book………

First Date tips

  • Be polite, courteous and thoughtful.
    (Say your pleases and thank you’s and put that cell phone away!)

  • Do NOT talk too much about your ex’s
    (unless you want to get rid of your date as soon as you have had a feed, then by all means go for it! Ex away!)

  • A man should be a gentleman…. a lady a lady. (Well for the first 15 minutes at least whilst you size each other up.)

  • Listen carefully to what the other is saying and even more importantly to what they are NOT saying.
    ( If they are talking with their back to you or ogling the wait staff, then I think you should order the cheapest thing on the menu if you are paying or the dearest if you are not)

  • Smile and look the other person in the eyes when you speak to them
    ( But don’t smile if they are telling you a sad story. And please don’t give that nervous cheezy grin you have or they will be thinking like… ‘Weird’!…. Either way make sure you clean your teeth before hand to remove any evidence of the days snacks that only now become apparent when you smile)

  • Learn their name quickly!
    ( don’t get the previous date nor the one following this one confused with the one siting opposite you now! This is MOST important! You know the hesitation when you go ummm.. Sally?…Jessy?…Raphael?)

  • Laugh sincerely even if the joke is lame.
    ( But don’t snort or laugh so loud causing the drink waiter to drop their tray of glasses in fright!)

  • If fine dining, ensure you place the napkin on your lap, if indeed the waiter has not officiated in that duty when you first sit down.
    ( remember the napkin goes on your lap NOT tucked into the top of your open shirt or blouse. AND if you insist on doing this then be careful not to mistake the linen table cloth for a napkin, otherwise ….well you know…..first impressions and all that with the food and drinks now on the floor with silence throughout the dining room.)”
