next tuesday i'm going on a first date with a girl that i've just met on a kind of dating site (officially it's to meet new people).
we'll be meeting at the station of a city. She goes to school in that city since three years and i'm doing my internship there since only two weeks, needless to say i don't know the city at all but it's the only possibility where we could meet up.
We'll be meeting at around 5.30 and i'm planning to go eat in a regular place, don't know where but we'll find something.
afterwards we should be going for a drink of course, depending on how the date is going, we'll go to a bar or to her flat.
I'm hoping this girl could be my girlfriend as she possesses pretty much all characteristics that i'm looking for in a girl (if i may believe her profile)
My first objective for the date is to certainly NOT get friendzoned so my question is the following: How do I reach this objective?
I have already read quite some stuff here on the forums so I believe I should gently touch her several times within the first few minutes and make certain decisions such as the place where we'll eat, where we'll sit and so on.
Does anyone have any more tips for a man who's about to go on his first date ever?
If you have comments about places to go to, also more than welcome!
edit: For example, when eating, how should we sit? Is in front of each other good or should we sit aside so there is possibility for Kino?
Final question: how high should i set my expectations about making it to at least a kiss close? Personally i don't think i should put these too high as it's a first date and i don't just want a ONS, but a long term relationship...
Appreciate all suggestions
