It is personal preference on how long to wait but there are very few reasons to delay.
After all, contacting someone is just a pre-cursor to the first date.
After all neither of you want to get locked into an hour-and-a-half long dinner (which may cost you around 0) when it’s clear after just 5 minutes that there’s no chemistry.
So pick a date that’s cheap, easy, and won’t take more than 60-90 minutes.
Ahead of your first date, preparation will play a big part in keeping your stomach from doing somersaults at the mere mention of your date’s name.
If you’ve been talking online, it’s more than likely that you’ll know the basics about your date and like what you’ve seen.
If a workout at the gym is your fail-safe stress reliever or a glowing tan is your ultimate confidence booster, you’re not alone; according to our Love Geist research, Londoners are twice as likely to hit the gym ahead of their first date while daters in the North West are 95% more likely to go for a sunbed or apply fake tan!Actually meeting the person you are talking to is one of the most important steps to online dating.That sounds amusing but many online daters dwell on internet communication overly long. They wanted me to get the show on the road and they were right to feel that way.If you can do multiple things on your first date it’s going to create a feeling like you’ve known each other longer than you actually have.Plus, mixing in an activity means you’re more likely to have fun together and avoid awkward tension.
If you feel like you’ve clicked online, then most likely you’ll click in person too; but if not, you know that you gave it a chance and will have no regrets.
