    If he’s taken the time to tell you the name of his sister, his dog, his favorite Please or Register to view links, his mum, his birthday and his best friend, try to remember them! Atleast some of them anyway. Anything you can pick up will make you seem attentive and interested. Getting it wrong, however, or just obviously not listening, will be hugely embarrassing!
    2. CONTROL THE CONVERSATION!
    Don’t bring up anything controversial, and if it happens to come up, be polite and respectful. Save conversations about religion and politics for later! Getting riled up or into an Please or Register to view links on a first date can lead to long Please or Register to view links silences, or to going home early.

Keep a mysterious air, and don’t invite him in. The chase is part of the Please or Register to view links, so don’t give it up immediately!
    10. DON’T STRESS ABOUT HIS CALL!

    However you think the date went, if you did your best and were yourself, it went as well as it could have. Now get on with your life and if he calls, perfect. If not, there are plenty more fish in the sea, and you’ll easily find a better one! And there will be plenty more Please or Register to view links to fret over, so don't bother about Please or Register to view links!
