How to Prepare for Your Jewish Blind Date
Jewish blind dating is becoming more and more popular as single young Jewish individuals search for their beshert. If you’ve set up a Jewish blind date and you’re feeling a little nervous, there are a few things you can do to prepare which might help you feel a little more comfortable.
Make Up Your Mind to Have Fun – Before the date, decide that you’re going to have a good time no matter what else happens. Whether or not you are truly interested in the person you’re meeting, you’re going to enjoy yourself. With this positive attitude, you can stay in high spirits whether the blind date was a success or you have no interest in the other person at all. Just because they may not be the material for your ‘someone special,’ doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy yourself.
Choose a Comfortable Setting – Choose a place for the date that is comfortable to you. It might be a favorite restaurant or a calming café. By picking a place that is familiar to you, you’ll feel more comfortable throughout the date, and it will show in your demeanor and mannerisms.
Bring a Small Token of Friendship – No matter what happens, you want your date to know that you’re courteous and thoughtful. Bring a small gift for him or her to show that you appreciate them going on a date with you. Whether it’s a flower, a bit of candy or something else – anything is great because it shows that you’ve thought of them.
Try on Your Clothing the Night Before – One way to ensure you’ll be more comfortable on your Jewish blind date is to ensure that you look great. Try on your clothes the night before and make sure everything is perfect. This will give you time to make other arrangements if you don’t like what you’re wearing, etc.
Be Open and Attentive – Remember that on your date, the best thing you can do is be open and attentive. When you’re listening to what the other person is saying and you’re really hearing it – you appear more interested in them. This is always a good quality!
By remembering the tips above, you can prepare for your Jewish blind date and have a wonderful time – whether the date is someone you think you could spend some time with or not. Remember to smile and enjoy yourself no matter what and you can at least be sure that you’ve had a great time.
