Dating student tip
Cafes make for great first date venues; a cup of coffee allows for a short encounter or a longer meeting, depending on how well you hit it off!
Ahead of your first date, preparation will play a big part in keeping your stomach from doing somersaults at the mere mention of your date’s name.
You might learn a thing or two by simply relaxing and listening to your date.
Responding appropriately will show that you too have an opinion and, perhaps more importantly at this stage, that you are interested in what they have to say.
While it’s essential to look the part, it’s equally as important to feel comfortable in what you’re wearing. Choose an outfit that both looks and feels great and you’ll exude confidence throughout your date.

If you’re held up, apologise with dignity, deliver a winning smile and offer your date a drink.
The first date is all about enjoying the company of someone new and intriguing, so aim to avoid provoking political debates and stories about past relationships.
Don’t lie and say you love it either – remain neutral and polite.
If you date has taken time to choose the venue, compliment something about it such as the convenient location.
