If you plan to make the first meeting with the person that you message for a long time over a dating app, it's a good idea to check their information in advance.

You can go over their social accounts such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc. and see if their real-life photos match the ones on the dating app. In this way, you will feel more secure in the knowledge that they don't lure you into an unhealthy relationship.

Calling person you haven't had any face-to-face conversations is quite weird. However, making a short phone call before the date so really works for you. If you find your enjoyment when talking with them on the phone, it's a good sign that your partner is going to be great.

Public places are always good choices for you to find comfort and safety as facing a new individual from a dating app, especially in the first time. Hence, it's essential to use your car or public transportations to reach dating places.

However, if the meeting makes you uncomfortable by any means, you should put an end to that date and wish them joy before leaving.

Take it easy

Your mind has a high power that affects your feelings and behaviors. Hence, if you have a mantra to repeat before going to the date, you may sense more confident and relaxed.

A mantra genuinely working for you is "The goal for this first date is to decide whether it is possible for a second date" or "to expand your social network." By convincing yourself as this way, you are ready for a new meeting with an open heart and put no expectations on what is going to happen in this new relationship.
