Act first date dating old friend
Like they say: you never get a second chance to create a first impression.
And the stakes are never higher than when you’ve just met a great woman that you might share the rest of your life with, right?
The easiest way to do that is to speak to her as if you want to have fun — as if she’s a FRIEND instead of a potential employer. If she ever draws back away from you, never “chase” her by leaning in. During conversation, look around the room a little to break the tension.
After the first “hello” moments of the date, feel free to take the usual conversation topics (careers, movies, whatever) and redirect the conversation in a way that creates FUN instead of TENSION and STIFFNESS.

No, this isn’t a Friday night date with that cutie from class. We’ve all had those fun, flirty first date feelings: those butterflies-in-your-stomach, goose-bumpy feelings. I’m talking about flirtationships–that tricky in-between stage when you regularly flirt with a guy friend but for one reason or another, you do nothing more than that. A couple of drinks out at the bar and a hug that’s kept going for just a second too long. Like, your old friend from high school or that guy who lives down the hall in your dorm?
