Blind Dating Tips for Girls
The dating tips for girls who are going on a blind date are not that different from blind date tips that you would give a man.

If your friend arranged the blind date, ask her questions about the date’s background, his interests and beliefs. You also want to look your best for the date so shop for your outfit at least a few days before the date so that you will be prepared when it is time for the date. Be well-groomed and bring mints with you for fresh breath.
Here are dating tips for girls going on blind dates as it relates to conversation. Pick up on the things he talks about and then add to the conversation by asking open ended and intelligent questions onm the topic. If your date talks about how he first started collecting vinyl jazz albums and his favorite jazz artists, you can mention how you enjoy certain subgenres of jazz music and who your favorite artists are.
Don’t be Rude
Even if you don’t think the date is going well, you should treat the date with respect and not criticize him with belittling comments. You may not have a chemistry with him now, buy you may run into him a few years later and you could date and establish a relationship with him at that time. When the date ends, thank him and shake his hand.
Keep Realistic Expectations
You are probably excited that your blind date has a lot in common with you and it appears that he is attracted to your inner and outer beauty and personality. But remember that just because you had a good first date doesn’t mean that he will want a second date or that if a second date occurs, things will turn serious between the two of you. The important thing is to have fun on the date and see what happens aftwerwards.
Safety Is Important
You always want to have your own transportation when going out on a blind date because you don’t know a lot about the person and you don’t want to put yourself in a vulnerable position by allowing him to bring you home. This is especially the case if you met him online. Before head to the venue you should leave your number and the address and phone number of the venue with relatives and friends, and if you don’t have a car, have adequate funds for cab fare or call someone you trust to pick you up.
Blind dates don’t have to be awkward or boring if you prepare yourself beforehand and if you have confidence in yourself, things will go well on the date.
