I’ve been asked out many times before but never took up the offer because I didn’t (still don’t) feel ready yet. Dating right now is still a very low priority for me, but if I could at least familiarize myself with what to expect that would be nice.
I’m a very anxious person especially when comes to unfamiliar social situations. Learning the basics of what to expect always helps make my anxiety shut up a little. The handbook is written with the assumption that the reader has some experience with dating. This isn’t wrong, it just makes it a little unclear or confusing to those who are inexperienced. I doubt most depictions of dates in media are completely accurate.
Signs of a bad date are obvious enough but what are signs of a good date? Also, what are some good dating ideas that don’t involve dining? Going out to dinner gets boring very quickly.
