It has been said that the term “blind date” got its name because you are wearing a proverbial blindfold until you actually see the guy face to face.
When you get set up with someone through a friend, meet him for drinks, dinner or coffee and have no clue what you’re getting yourself into, that is a blind date.
I didn't have very much fun at it, which is depressing since I didn't pair up until my 30s.
Besides, so much luck was involved in my finding my match that there are probably more alternate universes where I'm still living solo than where I'm married.
This is true of every first date, and blind dates are no different.
It's too late for me, but maybe you can learn from what I wish I knew when I was single.

When on a first date, remember to do more listening than talking. Questions such as, "When is the last time you had sex"? We know first impressions are important, and we'd like to think they're primarily based on personality, right? First impressions are largely about on how we look.
Getting to know your date requires you to ask questions and then carefully listen to the answers. So when you're getting ready for that all-important first date, think about what you are going to wear.
