Be sure you’re both ready:-
The date at home means something else – and no, we don’t just mean sex (it certainly doesn’t need to lead to the bedroom). The home date is a step up in intimacy; letting someone else into your home is a fairly big deal as it will tell them a lot about you.
On the other hand, if you’re the guest and you just don’t feel comfortable going to your date’s home at this stage in the relationship then let them know. You don’t need to be tactless, simply say something like, ‘I think it’d be great if we got to know each other a bit better over dinner dates first, with less pressure.’
Keep it simple:-
This new relationship tip is mainly for the host – don’t try to do anything complicated. Don’t cook something you’ve never cooked before (have you never seen Come Dine With Me?) and don’t decide to redecorate your living room at the last moment.
Something is bound to go wrong, which will stress you out, when in reality you want to be at your most relaxed and happy for your date.
This tip follows on from keep it simple, as you should give yourself plenty of time to prepare your meal, tidy your home and get ready for the evening. Be realistic; if your date is coming round at 8pm and you finish work at 6pm then you’ll probably want to buy your ingredients and do your Magic Maid impression the day before.
If you’re the guest, make sure you know exactly where your date’s home is – print off a map if you need to, because there’s little worse than getting lost in an area you don’t know and arriving late and flustered at your host’s house.
