Many people end up blinddating, but not very many people set out on their quest for love with intention of ending up having to date blind. A lot of people date blind as a "last resort" when they feel they have run out of other options for finding a partner. However, it is possible to date blind and have a lot of fun. Blinddating doesn't have to be a chore. In fact, if you try out these blind date tips, you may find that going on a blind date was the best choice you ever made.
One reason why blinddating rarely works is that both parties know that failure is a big possibility for the date, and so they don't put in the kind of effort which might change the course of the date. If you date blind often, you may well have noticed a certain sense of relief in your partners' eyes when the date ends, as though the whole endeavor has been a chore. This dynamic happens time and time again to those who date blind, regardless of who they are.
Many blinddating experiences go sour for no good reason. You may well be an extremely charming, funny, attractive person, and your date may be as well. In fact, if the two of you met under different circumstances, it is quite possible that you and your blind date might have hit it off very well, and maybe even fallen in love. However, a reality of blinddating is that both parties involved often have negative expectations before the date even starts, and that attitude can influence the outcome of a date. Some singles are even ashamed to date blind, feeling as though they should be able to get their own dates without the help of their friends or associates who set them up with their blinddating partner.
However, you can turn this depressing dynamic upside down by making a conscious choice to date blind and have fun. Try blinddating with a positive attitude. Going on a date blind is asking fate to throw you for a loop and bring you together with someone who might be perfect for you. Often when we choose our own dates, we choose people who remind us of other partners we have had in the past. Often, we repeat cycles of behavior which leave us hurt and alone. Blinddating allows us to escape from this trap and to try a whole new pattern of romance.
The best blind date tips boil down to two basic pieces of advice. Have a positive attitude, and keep an open mind. Having a positive attitude will make you appear fun and charming to your partner, and can help you have a great evening even if there isn't a future for the two of you as romantic partners. Feeling good about yourself is a positive asset for you in the dating pool in general, and especially in the world of blinddating. The second of the two blind date tips, keeping an open mind, is especially important if you don't immediately fall for your blind date partner. At the start of the date, before you meet your partner, promise yourself that you will give the relationship a chance by having as much fun with your date as you possibly can.
Try not to evaluate their potential as a romantic partner until the date is over and you have had a chance to get to know each other. Give your date the opportunity to charm you, to make you feel good, to make you fall in love, and they just might live up to the challenge!
