1. Do show up on time. Being late is rude and a major turn-off. First impressions   count.

2. Do look your best. This shows your date you've actually put some effort   in your appearance. The neater the better, so dress to impress.

3. Do show your smile. Don't be afraid to show off those pearly whites. A great   smile can lighten up a room.

4. Do be courteous. Being polite and well-mannered shows your consideration   for others.

5. Do show him/her you're listening. Always pay attention to what your date   is saying. This shows you are interested in the person sitting across from you.

6. Do give him/her compliments. Giving praise is very positive and welcomed.   It's a great boost for morale

7. Don't be something you're not. Don't be fake or put on an act. Be yourself;   the best version of you.

8. Don't text others during the date. Texting while on a date is a big "no-no"!   It's just plain rude.

9. Don't talk about your ex. No one wants to spend the whole date talking about   your relationship disasters. Leave the past in the past and get to know the   person in front of you.

10. Don't be rude to the wait staff. This is a sure-fire way to lose your date's   interest. Treat the wait staff with respect and tip accordingly.
