Mondays with Martha

Recently,  I came across this article. Sometimes we forget ourselves especially in social situations. I think the following makes for a good review. Let me know what you think. If you've got a story to tell, share it here.
· Look your best by dressing up well and always be on time for your meetings.
· Compliment your date for his/her looks and be sincere.
· If you are meeting for the first time or after online dating then meet in public and not in secluded pubs and bars.
· Be lighthearted and sober in your approach.
· Switch off your cell phone or turn it to silent mode before your conversation begins. Distractions signal a lack of interest or respect.
· Always warm and positive. Laugh and the world laughs with you, cry and you cry all by yourself.
· Make eye contact with your date to show interest and respect.
· Ask questions (this shows that you are interested)
· Do not drink too much during your date. In fact, keep drinking to a minimum, as most people drink more when they are nervous.
· Do not date a person who is otherwise involved seriously with someone else (couple, marriage, etc.)
· Do not go for sex on a first date. As exciting as it may be to hit a home run in the first inning, having or trying to get frisky on the first date almost always comes off in bad form.
· Do not lie to your date on any aspect of your life. Be your best self but be your true self.
· Do not reveal your inner most secrets or speak too much about yourself on the first meeting itself. Being honest and upfront are necessary but no where to draw the line.
· Do not splash on too much perfume. No matter how attractive the smell is, too much is always a turn off.
· Do not be over critical about anyone or anything. Again, remain positive in your outlook.
· Don't joke on dirty, political or religious issues. These topics should be avoided for meetings where you are getting to know each other. They are highly controversial for most people.
