First Date Rules #4: Embrace Any Awkwardness

Let’s be honest, first dates can be awkward. We have all had that moment where we went in for the first kiss and somehow the whole thing got botched. You bumped heads, or the car door shut onto your date and almost knocked her over, or you fell off your barstool…

Yes, those have all happened to me. It didn’t matter though. My date and I both got a good laugh about the situation. We talked about how funny, even awkward what just happened was, and then we got back to the kiss. No harm, no foul.

If something is awkward, embrace it. Acknowledge that something might be awkward and then laugh it off. Go back to doing what you were doing and enjoy your date’s company.
