You are young and are fairly new to this mingling business. But now you too want to enjoy dating, romance, have fun and if possible in the process end up finding a life partner. But the question is when to say yes to a date. Hanging out with friends or even with your crush or that special person along with your colleagues is just normal.
But when it is time to go on a date with someone you are attracted to, you do not know whether it is the right decision to say yes or not. Rather there is always a dilemma when you want to decide for your first date.
Are you comfortable?
You certainly know some details about this person like his name, profession, maybe a few close friends, job or business. Technically the details that are usually available on the official social media accounts of the person are available with you. It is always good if you have met that person physically at some events or when you were in the company of others.
Try to think whether you are comfortable talking to that person. Did he/she attract you or make you feel awkward? While externally you may be highly impressed by the appearances, it is the vibes and the undercurrent feeling that usually give the right indicators.
Say Yes only and only if you feel comfortable even thinking of being with that person. If there is a slight hesitation or awkwardness while making a decision or you are in two minds, take some time. It is always okay to say “Let me think over” instead of saying yes out of the blue and regretting it later.
How were you approached?
If you have been casual friends for some time and then the person has asked you out then you have a good idea what sort of he or she is in person. But if your would-be-date is new to you, and you do not know this person properly then the only way you can decide whether to say yes or no is by judging the way he/she approached you.
Was it done very casually in front of other people or did the person call you personally and politely ask you out? What exactly did you feel after he/she proposed for a date? If you felt happy and eager then you should definitely say yes. But if his/her approach left you feeling upset or humiliated then you should simply decline.
