This web site, 1stBlindDate.com is dedicated to persons who have never
gone on a blind date or if they are experienced at blind dating.
To be precise, a blind date is technically the bringing together of two
persons that have never previously met.
Often, blind dates are created by arrangements through a third and/or
forth party to assist in putting two people together.
Many people associate a blind date with a nervous, awkward experience
they are fearful of before they even meet the new person. Why? In this
fast pace world, it is extremely difficult to find quality people to
meet and date. Why not have friends, relatives, help you meet new
people. Blind dates can be a good thing, not a tragedy.
The key to a blind date is the frame of mind you have when meeting of a
new person. It does not mean you have to marry this new person on the
Please understand that a blind date is not a blind marriage!
Blind dates can be excellent ways to meet new people and either build a
new friendship or even more if your mutual interests develop in that
If you go on a blind date and it only turns out to be a meeting of a
potential new friend is that really a bad thing? No one has an over
abundance of friends or associates and even if your true love is not
found on a blind date, an increasing of friends and associates can be
great for your personal and/or business life.
Usually blind dates start out with the
following statements from a friend, relative, coworker:
“I know this person you should meet. I am sure you will hit
“You should meet my sister (brother), you two would be perfect
for each other.”
"I have the perfect person to set you up with."
“There is a person you should date, let me set it up for you’”
“My cousin is coming into town this weekend, you should go out
with them, I know you will like them.”
Unrealistic expectations and fear are usually the downfalls of a
blind date. Be honest, are you the perfect catch for someone?
Well maybe the person that is being set up for you on the blind
date is not a perfect 10 either.
We all have pride and want the best for our self, but reality of
the expectation is something that needs to be keep in check.
Keeping an open mind and not having unrealistic rules of
expectations interfere with reality will go a long way to
improving the blind date experience.
The worse that can happen on a blind date is you do not like the
person after a period of time during the meeting and you go on
with your life. There is a sports term that is appropriate here,
No harm, no foul. With that said, we do not suggest you expose
person information or facts that a non scrupulous person can use
to invade your privacy at a later date. Keep your guard up until
you are satisfied if a person is trustworthy to share private,
intimate or sensitive information.
