I'm constantly being asked by dating clients what they should do and say on dates - especially first dates, and the answer is fairly easy to anticipate.
It's simply to remember that whatever annoys you or puts you off about the people you date, is likely to put them off if you do the same things!
Remember it's not a sell, and you don't have to get everything there is to know about you across on the first date. If you find yourself having to sell yourself and really work for that second date, it's probably not meant to happen.
Keep these basics in mind when heading off for your first coffee together:
