10 things you need to know about dating

This should go without saying, but don’t bring guests to your date.

You may need a break from dating so you can deal with your issues.

Don’t date on the rebound, as these relationships rarely turn out well.

It’s best to steer clear of a discussion about your exes until the time is right.

If you just can’t help yourself, and your ex is still all you talk about, you’re clearly not over the relationship.

The first couple of dates will help you decide whether to continue with the relationship or move on to someone more compatible. Put down what you’re doing — or at least tell your significant other to give you a second if you are in the middle of something dangerous — then give your full attention,” says Ella Ceron in Pay attention to your appearance.

Your date shouldn’t have to repeat his or herself several times. I’ve been guilty of half-listening to my girlfriend. If you show up looking a mess, it shows that you don’t take pride in how you look and don’t really care about the outcome of your meeting.

Heal your heart first, and then jump back into the dating pool when you’re ready. The first date is when you’ll learn a lot of new things about your potential partner.

Take the time to really listen to what he or she is saying.

When you’re spending time with a new special someone, it’s important to demonstrate good manners.

You don’t have to be uptight and concerned about every little move, but you should watch your behavior just a little closer on a first date.

If you really couldn’t care less, just cancel the date and stay home.
