I am going out on a date after a very long time. I don't know how to?

I feel like i don't like him, and i feel he doesn't too. He doesn't seem eager to know me and I am not either, I am just going to meet him just to check him out, (if that's how they call it now)

But how am I gonna meet someone if I always feel this way?

i think what you need to do is contact the person and see what they think as well. sometimes our own perceptions bend what we see. if you both agree it just doesn't seem like it would be the thing to do, then don't. no long explanations, or bad feelings afterward. just agree it would not be enjoyable for either, and let it go at that.

but, who knows, you might actually enjoy the other persons company if you get to know them. it's a crap shoot.

My experieince over the last five years is that the biggest problem is meeting people, dating is actually the second step. The more people you meet and whose paths you cross, the greater the pool of potential dates. And the first date or two after a long hiatus is more to get used to the process once again. After awhile it gets easier to say "no thanks" to those you don't want to date, "no more" to those who want to go too far, and "Yeah" to those you are having fun with. The first step is always the hardest. You'll do fine. Let nature be ready to take it's course and have fun. "Checking people out" can be fun in it's own way. You can have fun doing things you don't want to do alone. Not a life-committment, just enjoying the company of another adult. Good luck.

Is this like a blind date arranged by friends or a person you've met online?

These things are what you make of them. You just have to adjust your attitude going in and enjoy yourself. Even if he's someone you don't expect will be a good dating prospect, there's no reason not to make the most of the experience.

If you always feel that way... change the way you feel.

I know it feels like a sticky wicket... it's tough getting in the swing of dating again after a long time. Follow your gut, be honest with yourself and the other person... in the long run it works better that way.

If it truly doesn't feel right, then don't do it. However, as Sawduster said, you never know... you may have a really good time. At least it's an opportunity to get your feet wet and you may make a new friend even if he doesn't curl your toes.

Dating these days seems more complicated, but if you don't get out there and experience it you'll miss some good to great opportunities with people you wouldn't know. Just don't have any expectations and take it one step at a time.

So, go out there and have some fun!
