Being stoned or wasted only gets a laugh from your yobbo mates at your expense Act like a lady or gentleman. It must come from the heart Be that way during your first date right until your last and see what a difference it will make to you, your date's and your life Do not expect your prospect to be available for a date at short notice Ask a few days in advance of the proposed date Set a meeting time and if possible an ending time If the person cannot or will not be available for a date at the second request – they are not interested Don’t push the issue.
