Make sure that you do everything in your power to make your date fun! Dating decorum is something that you should be conscious of, but at the same time remember that having fun is paramount, regardless of your stress.
It is imperative that your date feel like the only person in the room and eye contact is a big step in that direction.
Try not to look away much at all, but if you must make sure that you are definitely not checking someone else out! 3.
Be courteous by opening doors or offering the other to order first, regardless of the gender that you are in the date.
Courteousness goes beyond gender lines and dating decorum demands that you behave to impress.
Don't hesitate to offer compliments early and often on your date, and not just for the obvious stuff like personal appearance.
Compliment a view on a subject, a taste for movies or music, or accomplishments in education or one's career.
Everybody likes compliments! 5.
As a man, don't keep all of your attention focused on her chest and as a woman, don't get too upset if a man does focus on them, especially if they are prominently displayed.
Men can't help it, it's in their DNA to look if the opportunity is there, just try to contain yourself! 6.
If you have agreed on a certain time to meet someone for a date then make sure you are as closed to on time as humanly possible.
Tardiness is not acceptable to anyone, especially if you are supposed to meet someone else or make it to a movie or event.
If you ever want to see this person again, and you don't want to anger the karma gods, do NOT stand the person up! You schedule a date, then show up for it...
if you must cancel then give at least 24 hours notice (unless there is an unavoidable emergency).
Unless you know that you are going out with Paris Hilton, do NOT try to be gaudy with your clothes and accessories.
Dating decorum is a strange thing sometimes, but your appearance will always be an issue, especially that first sight and you don't want someone to mistake you for Mr.
In addition to the above, don't talk about money much if at all during your date because it only turns people off.
Talking about how much you do or don't have could be construed as being showy or whiny and you don't want to make that impression.
Watch your opinions and rants on the first few dates until you establish what the common grounds and untouchable areas are.
Everybody has a hot button issue that they don't want to discuss or that makes them angry, don't try to push it.
