Just remember that while being observant is important, you do still have to pay attention to your date.
Sometimes being shy is a struggle, but that’s who we are and we should embrace it. And now, we can be ourselves and still make it in the dating world.
Though it can be tedious, asking your crush things like where they go to school, what their major is, if they play/watch sports and what their favorite kind of music is, is actually important.
Finding out that your date is obsessed with hardcore rock when you’re a devout indie girl is more of a factor than you might think.
“Getting drinks or doing dinner and a movie prevent a lot of natural conversation,” says Jessica, a graduate of Rowan University.
“If you go on more of an active date, there is a greater need for communication.
Those activities require conversation to progress the date.” Once you start talking, you may begin to feel more comfortable around the other person.
Emily, a senior at Pace University says, “Start with what's around you, like things you can both comment on.
For example, comment on the food you ordered if you’re at a restaurant, or maybe make a comment about a billboard you pass by for a movie.” Little comments like these create avenues for topics of conversation.
