  • When in doubt, if you don't know what they're into, why not ask them? Talking about anything can create a deeper understanding and a more intimate relationship. If she doesn't like bowling, try to compromise; Ask if one game is okay, and then you can both do something she wants to do. And if he hates standing there while you're trying on clothes, ask him to pick out an outfit for you. You may find that there's something more to the both of you than you originally thought.

  • First date means big impression, just relax and try to have a decent time.
  • If you're comfortable with the person you should be able to talk about pretty much anything. Don't be afraid to open up, just don't open up too much.

  • Always take precautions.
  • Never assume anything is okay unless said otherwise.
