The first thing you need to remember as the date is progressing is not to panic! Take a few minutes for yourself in the restroom and calm yourself down. Remember that this is just a first date and even though it is also probable the last date with that person, it is still just a small chunk of time out of your life. Dating is a process and if you don’t have any bad dates you might have a hard time really identifying a good date as it happens. Keep everything in perspective.
