Dating in 2019 is very different to how it used to be.
Even just ten years ago the dating landscape was a vastly different place, and modern technologies and trends have changed the way that we meet new potential partners and the range of experiences that we spend our dating time on.
Getting out of your comfort zone can be a great way to break the ice on a date, and in 2019 it could be the key to securing that all-important second date.
Just like the advice about not being fake, it’s incredibly important that you stay honest with yourself about who you are.

Going out a couple of times does not mean you are “going steady”!

Treat your date as a fun experience, and you’ll be able to relax and enjoy yourself a lot more easily.
As for me, after a number of dates from popular Internet dating sites, I tried a Buddhist dating site.
(There are specialized services for all sorts these days, and Buddhism is an integral part of who I am.
We can choose to get to know more than one man at a time. If you find you like one person enough (and he you), then decide to pause after the 10 dates while you see if he’s a keeper.
