For those American singles heading on a first date with someone they’ve met on Elite Singles, the chances are you and your date have already hit it off online.
After finding interest in each other’s profiles and exchanging messages to become more familiar with one another, it’s time for that all important first meeting.
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.One common reason to delay a first date is due to an attempt to learn more about the other person. I found the first few minutes of the first date are worth more than dozens of emails.Another reason to delay would be if the person you are communicating with has expressed extreme reservations about meeting people from the internet.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.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.
