On your first free personals date, remember to be yourself. Chris Rock once gave some dating tips and said that when you first meet someone, you aren't really meeting that person - you are meeting their "personal representative." That is so true. But still, even though you may be nervous or anxious, try to relax and be yourself. Many people can sense when a person is trying to project an image other than their own.
Be agreeable about the plans. Try to suggest things that would be of interest to you both. If you have a specific place you want to go, mention it with a couple of other options and see what your date says. He/she may even know of a better place that you are unaware of, so don't be afraid to ask for, or accept, suggestions.
First date ideas are not always easy to come up with. You can always go the traditional "dinner and a movie" route, but doing something different can be a lot better when wanting to get to know someone. An afternoon trip to the zoo, picnic in the park, or bike ride can help ease some of the first-date tension. If you can think of a date atmosphere where you won't be distracted or constantly interrupted, you will have a better chance to talk and get to know one another.
Don't expect too much on the first date. After all, you just met this person. You both may need to get to know each other better "in real life," before getting too serious. Then again, you may hit it off right from the start. Just go into the date relaxed without any expectations, and play it by ear.
