The golden rule of the first date is: keep it simple. We strongly recommend that the first date is a quick drink or coffee, rather than a three-course dinner or camping trip to the Gower (yes, some people really do these things!), because you need to be able to leave speedily if the whole thing is obviously falling flat on its face. However, once the first date is done and you've confirmed that there are some exciting tingles the following dates should be a lengthier affairs that will enable you to really start to get to know each other.
