5. Don't Make It Into A Big Deal
First dates definitely induce jitters, but just remember this is a low-fuss hangout with a nice stranger. The person might turn out to be great, which means you'll have another fun outing on the horizon, and if they kind of sucked, at least you got to have a drink outside of the house and have a funny story to tell your friends. We're not meant to click with 100 percent of the people we meet, so don't put too much pressure on yourself to be loved by everyone. Show up with reasonable expectations and just have fun.
