A good number of people could struggle with the very first dates. They tend to be those who are less adept at social interaction and find the early process of getting to know someone rather difficult.
Where the problem is most challenging is for people who are not the most articulate or strong communicators. During the early stages, there is less of a relationship, and the importance of sharing information is at a premium. People who struggle with this artform may find the first couple of dates difficult.
Date one is there to answer one very simple question: Am I interested? Would I want to see this person again? Both parties are trying to work out whether they feel comfortable; whether the initial encounter was a pleasant experience.
The second (and perhaps third) date too has one aim: Am I compatible with this person? Do I have enough in common? The focus is on sharing specific information on the usual range of topics to see if there is sufficient agreement and synergy.
With this in mind, it is not hard to see why a particular kind of communication is critical during these first few dates. Read the full article for lots of helpful advice.
