Dating in the 21st Century seems to have taken on a new dimension of complexity. The factors to consider even before the date has occurred have grown exponentially. Things to consider include:
- Outfit & Overall Physical Appearance
What should I wear? What does this outfit say about me? What if I start sweating? Maybe something will get in my teeth...
- Showing Up Do I come on time? Is that coming on too strong? What if they don't show up? What if they're at a different location?
- The Greeting Should we embrace? Should we shake hands? Will they remember what I look like?
- Conversation On no, I've got to talk! What if we don't have anything in come? What if they don't laugh at my jokes?
And of course the VENUE! Knowing where to take someone on a date is a battle in itself. You'd think that the internet would help but, instead it's information overload. A simple concept of drinks and dinner has now turned into a Teppenyaki vs Italian conundrum and, fingers crossed, no one has any food intolerances or allergies. Finally after an exhausting search, 10 calls to your closest friends and family you find the ideal restaurant, YES! Oh wait! It's a 60 minute drive from where you live, another one goes into the 'No' pile.
I was going through the dating saga, the pre-date torture, recently and found a site that saved my skin. Set My Scene is a website that gives you venue options that match the type of date you're trying to plan. Whether it be a casual first date in the trendy inner west area, or an anniversary in the city with a view, this site will give you a short list of options tailored to your needs. Oh and it's free!
