Research, but don’t overdo it. For safety reasons, doing a bit of research before a date is good. Try not to overdo it. Stay away from stalking every possible type of social media. Check if the person seems legit and safe. Learn the rest on the actual date. It’s part of the fun.
Courtesy is important. Some days it seems that courtesy and manners left the building with Elvis. Be courteous to your date. It is important and will make an impression. In many instances, it is the small things that tend to make the difference.

Find mutual interests. Even if you do not do intensive research beforehand, social media and dating apps should give you an idea of likes and dislikes.
