Handling First Date Expectations and Having Fun on Your Christian Date

Have you been dreading your first blind date with Mr. Right because you were afraid of meeting Mr. Wrong? Well, we certainly understand where you're coming from. Going on a date with someone for the very first time can be very nerve-wracking and downright scary experience. However, you don't have to worry so much about making the perfect first impression or impressing the guy so much that he falls instantly in love with you. Yes, it would be nice if you went on a date, found out he were your soul mate and got married after a short while, in most instances, relationships take time to develop and your mission on a first date is to have fun. Be yourself focus on getting to know the guy to learn about common interests and then you'll see if you even want to pursue further dates with him.

When you first meet someone, it's OK to flirt and get acquainted with him but remember that a first date not a work interview! Don't ask him a bunch of questions about his past girlfriends or talk about all the awful things your ex boyfriend did to you during your relationship. Instead, focus on getting to know him, understand his likes and dislikes but be safe. For instance, on a first date, it is always better to give your date your mobile phone number rather than your household phone number. It is also best to meet in a highly trafficked public spot. To protect yourself even further, you can even ask a friend to accompany you or signal for a friend or relative to intercept the date if you feel uncomfortable. Apps like Who's Calling  Fake Caller Free  (for iphone) enables you to receive a fake phone call to get out of a bad date.  The call even includes fake voices. How cool is that?

Whatever you do, be yourself and talk about those things that matter to you on your date. Have light conversation but get your questions answered, too. For instance, if it's important that you only date a Christian or someone who goes to church on a regular basis, it is a good idea to bring that up in a conversation before you go too far. You can casually ask if they have a church affiliation, if they attend church on a regular basis, or other questions for that matter. Basically if there is a characteristic that is ultimately a deal breaker then find out about it during your first date. For instance, if you're allergic to cats and they have 5 cats then that would be a deal breaker. You'd want to find this out before you continue to date them.

Throughout your first date, you should have fun and be yourself but also be on the lookout for any bad vibes or signs. For instance, if your date's phone constantly rings or he gets a ton of texts then you should make note of that. Or, if a strange woman shows up and curses him out at dinner, you should also make note of that. In addition, if you feel really uncomfortable with your date, then use that as a gauge to not pursue the relationship further. Listen to your intuition. In addition, ask pertinent questions to find out if you and the person have some common values and interests.

In conclusion, it's never a good idea to rush into any relationship. A first date is simply that - a chance to meet and get to know someone. Use it to your advantage. Ask questions, have fun, keep it casual and be yourself. Then, you'll know if it's even worth going on a  second or third date.

An Honest Review of Perfect Match Dating Site

Finding that 'someone special' can seem impossible, especially if you're a Christian looking for someone with the same values and beliefs as yours. However, it could be easier than you think to find that perfect person. Online dating sites allow you a great opportunity to meed a wide variety of individuals. If the possibility of finding only non-Christians or those looking for a one night stand is enough to scare you away from dating sites forever, rest assured. Perfect Match is a dating site that caters specifically to Christians, making it easy to find someone who is caring, sweet, and who shares your passion for Christianity and your religion.

Five years after my husband died, I was ready to start dating again. I went through the typical methods of finding someone to spend my time with - church, friends, fellowship groups. I just never found someone that I had that spark with. When a friend mentioned dating websites, I had the same doubts you're probably having. Would the people on the dating site share my love of the Lord, and take my religion as seriously as I took it? I didn't think so. But that was until I found Perfect Match. The members are all Christian, so it's easy to find someone with the same beliefs and values. That was half my battle right there! The next part was simply finding someone I related well with, and that I enjoyed talking to. With so many members who are incredibly interesting and caring, that part was easy. The site is very special to me for a number of reasons.


Perfect Match uses a method called 'Duet' to find others who are most likely to be compatible with you. The method uses the information you put into the system to find others who will relate well with you. Therefore, the method is a lot like weeding out the individuals you probably won't find interesting, enjoy being around, etc. You can even use the suggested lines as icebreakers to make that first conversation easy and effortless. I was shocked to find that Duet predicted perfectly the kinds of men I would be interested in - kind, strong men who had a deep spiritual side and who cared for others greatly.


Maybe you're nervous about more than just finding individuals to talk to. Maybe you're nervous about that first date with someone you find interesting. I know I was! Perfect Match has a ton of dating advice that will help you get through the first date easily and have a great time doing it. You don't have to research in other places to find advice that will help you feel more at ease during the first date. You can get all the information you need at Perfect Match - so it's a one-stop-shop for all your Christian dating needs.

Local Loves

Another thing you never have to worry about with Perfect Match is finding someone you really like and then learning that they live 1,000 miles away from you! Perfect Match uses your information to find individuals who live nearby - people that you might not ordinarily meet around town, but that live close enough for you to pursue a relationship with. This is very important, because you won't have the stress and strain of a long-distance relationship.

Perfect Match is the best dating site I've ever found, and I highly recommend it to any Christian single who is ready to get out there and find someone special.
