Get The Ring: How to Find & Keep the Right One for Life.
Rosie & Sherry - Part 6
Myth #2:You have to click with your date right away or you aren't right for each other.
Myth #3:If you don't feel physical attraction for your date the first time you meet, you'll never feel it. Forget about a second date.
Myth #4:You know the type of person that's right for you. It would be a big mistake to go out with someone who isn't your type.
I'd like to tell you why all of these statements are incorrect. We all use the expression "first impressions count" but when it comes to dating, that isn't always true. On a first date, anyone can be nervous, have a bad time at work or feel the flu coming on, and another person might put his foot in his mouth unintentionally. It's very rare for any of us to show what we're really like on that first date. For this reason, we recommend that you view the first date as an icebreaker. Wait a little bit, meaning for the second date. See what's beneath the surface. How many times have you decided very early on in that evening that this is not for you?
I hope someone else's experience will help you think twice before you rush to a judgment the next time you're on a blind date.

It was 1985 but Sheila's date looked like he had raided the costume closet for Saturday Night Fever. He had a white suit, black shirt open at the neck, a lot of jewelry and big hair. Sheila took one look at him and knew she had to think fast. Should she tell him that she was Nora the roommate and that Sheila was in the bathroom with a stomach virus? Sheila's conscience got the better of her and she knew she couldn't lie. She went out the door with Arnie and prayed that they wouldn't bump into anyone she knew.
Surprise, surprise, Sheila had a great time with Arnie. At the end of the evening they even decided to go out again. Today they have been married for more than 15 years and everyone who meets Arnie thinks that he looks like a very put-together businessman. All of you know the reason. Sheila picks out all of his clothes.
It sounds trite, but the best advice we can give anyone on the first date is to relax and enjoy the evening as best as you can. Don't build up your expectations. Instead, plan to spend a few hours, learn a little bit about that new person, and concentrate simply on enjoying the evening. Even if the conversation is a little
