Blind dating tips men
If you decide that a dude isn't dateable, it's okay to turn down the offer. Instead of saying "Nah, not for me," which may insult your matchmaker and put an end to any future setups, say something like "He sounds amazing, but I'm not sure I'm right for someone who just got out of a relationship/studies molecular biology/doesn't exercise at all.
But keep me in mind if you think of someone else who might be more my type." That way, it'll be clear that you're weighing potential compatibility and not just slamming the guy.
You need to be as detailed as possible about what you're looking for..what you're not.
For example, if you love to jog and work out at the gym, don't just say you want someone who's athletic — it's not specific enough.
"You can even think about your friends' boyfriends' admirable traits." And corny as it sounds, if you need help getting all of your thoughts organized, write it all down on a list for yourself.
