It’s always nice to pick up your date, but it’s definitely okay to meet her at the restaurant.
Once you two have been dating a while, then it’s safe to expect her to start taking care of dinner. On a first date, don’t ask her to come back to your place. Your home is an intimate and private place for you.
Most likely you would think of a polite way to let them down, for example ‘sorry I’m not looking for a relationship’ or ‘I’ve already got a boyfriend/girlfriend’ sort of thing.
Unfortunately, you can’t get away with these excuses online because, well, let’s face it, you are looking for a relationship and that’s entirely why you’ve come here.
The rules of conduct are seemingly made up by a hodge-podge of daters’ experiences and professionals (like me) who help frustrated singles looking for a serious relationship in the world of dating.
Throwing eight strangers together makes for some interesting stories.
Each dinner party takes on a life of its own and net result is always a great evening out.
Apparently she's an expert on etiquette, so she'd have a field day with me.
Honestly, I try very hard on first dates to mind my manners, but I guess the "real me" appears after I've dated a girl for a while.
