New York Dating:Tips and Advice

Three Tips for the First Date in New York
Design the date so that you will be able to focus on each other. The environment should make it easy to have a conversation. Avoid going to a movie or a loud concert, because that is a social blockade.
Don't hide behind an event. Make the environment a backdrop, not the focus. Put your personality out there without distractions. Dramatic first dates are a cop-out. Thankfully, the economy has neutralized your ability to hide behind your wallet. You have to go back to basics:effort and charm.
Always schedule the first date for the daytime. The nighttime has a lot of romantic connotations, and you feel almost forced to be sexy and cool. But going out during the daytime is more relaxed.
First Date Conversation Tips
Be honest. be yourself - Try to be relaxed. If you and your date are compatible, he/she will appreciate how fascinating you are.
Ask a lot of get-to-know-you questions - Ask questions that will help you find your common ground such as places you both used to live, hobbies, philosophies about life, etc.
Keep topics light - Try to steer your conversations in comfortable directions. Avoid delving into controversial topics such as politics or extremely personal ones.
Be a good listener - Let your date know how interested your are by listening and giving ample room for discussion. Stay engaged and maintain good eye contact.
