Came across this video, by Matthew Hussey, about practical dating tips you can use. I completely agree with the tips he discusses The only warning I would inject is that you should be careful about the touching as this could give men licence to be forward with you. I would say that you should shake hands instead of hugging especially if this is your first date, hugging can come later as you get more comfortable with him. During the date if you are enjoying yourself you can playfully touch, punch or poke. You certainly don’t want to subconsciously give permission to physical involvement if you do not want to move the relationship forward.
