CONGRATULATIONS! You made it through round one! Let’s recap- on your first date, you met in a public place, you didn’t talk about yourself too much, you kept the office at the office, if you have kids you didn’t talk about them, and at the end of the date you had a goodnight kiss. WELL DONE!
Time for round two! First of all, there are a lot of elements from round one you’re going to have to re-embrace- still meet in a public setting, keep the conversation light, and make sure to end with a smooch. Getting this down will now help you with these tips:
Question Bounce- for every question they ask, ask at least one question back with a follow up. In other words, help them expand on thier answer so you can dig a little deeper.Kiddo Chatter- Have kids? Dying to talk about them?
