At the same time, remember that some of the potentials you meet may be shy or may need a few minutes to open up and talk to you.
So don’t wonder about why your date isn’t talking unless they’re staring at their watch or frowning.
Key goals of a first date are to (a) see if you have a connection, and (b) find out if you and your date have any major areas of incompatibility. Why: Does the person have strong feelings or are they more easygoing and with milder feelings.
