    Ok. I have a date tomorrow. Olive Garden, 7pm.

    Can someone please advise me how to act? Guys, girls, any advice will do.

    You all know my basic foibles, what's least acceptable?

    Don't get drunk.
    Don't drool.
    Eat like a civilized human being.
    Tell her she has nice eyes - and remember what color they are.
    Pull out the chair for her.
    Stand up if/when she leaves the table for the restroom and when she comes back.
    If you order wine, don't worry about smelling the cork - no one does that. Do taste the wine and tell the server it is fine.
    Open the car door for her - especially when you walk her to the car. If she gets out before you make it around, no problem. You could always insist she get back into the car but that might be extreme.
    Open the restaurant door for her.
    LISTEN to her when she talks.

    Most importantly..just have fun..don't sweat it.

    1. Don't keep asking if they are having a good time, nothing will end a good time like insecurity.
    2. Keep politics away from initial conversation, this can be brought up at later dates.
    3. Take your ques from the lady, don't order for her etc unless it is clear that she expects such activity.
    4. Don't purchase red roses, etc. and don't choose a place that is too romantic. This is a first date, not a proposal.


    Here is a site that can likely give you some hints as well:

    So that gentleman stuff helps huh? I'll try. Oh and I already KNOW she's conservative. That was part of the search criteria when I found her profile. So that 's a whole area of stress gone. I really couldn't be with a lib. I picture food all over the restaurant after that debacle.

    Great stuff, again. You guys are the bestest.

    It's weird how it's easy to be cool when you don't care, but harder when you do.

    It's cool. I sent out a bunch of emails to prospects yesterday. This one was near the top of the ones I wanted to get back to me.

    It definitely helps. Chivalry is not dead. And if she is a conversative - and you already know this - then you are that much better off.

    Do you already "like" her or is this just the "see how it goes" date?

    And...have you two discussed anything along the lines of likes..hobbies..collectables...etc...

    Yeah, it is always easier to assess the situation when you are not caught in the middle. Good luck!

    And zhuke, if you're feeling Yoda-y, I know there's only do or do not. There is no try.
