Table Manners: What they can Tell You about Your Date
Most Newton Singles understand that a first date can be a nerve wracking experience. However, if you are going to dinner, there is some good news. Your date’s etiquette can tell a lot regarding how they feel about the date. In order to decipher these signs, you will first have to know what they are. The observations you should make while eating out on your date are highlighted here.
Fork and Knife Finesse
While almost everyone will use the wrong fork at some point or another, what you need to be looking out for is how your date uses their utensils. If they appear to be using them like miniature weapons, then this may be a sign of hidden aggressions and a person that you will likely not want a second date with. However, if your date is carefully selecting what bite of food to eat, then this may show that they are a bit anal-retentive. The bottom line is that if you are a go with the flow type of person, then you will likely do better avoiding these types of eaters.
Their Ordering Behavior
In between sitting down at the table and your small talk, you will have to decide what to order. When you are choosing what you want, pay attention to the way that your date evaluates the choices as well as this will help you learn quite a bit about the personality of your date. If you have a date that orders right when the waitress arrives, then this may be a compulsive person who likes being in charge. However, if they are a person that does not even glance at the menu until the waitress arrives, then this is a person who loves to be the life of the party. They may also be uncaring that the waitress has other customers to take care of in addition to your table.
The fact is that when it comes down to it, you want to find a date that has a personality similar to yours. This will help you relate to each other much better, than finding someone with an opposing personality. If you are planning a first date, then you should keep these tips in mind to ensure that you only ask for a second date with a person that you are truly compatible with.
