One of the things that online dating and Christian online dating have in common is some unavoidable first-time nervousness or agitation. If you have finally fixed a date with a single man or woman through an Internet dating website, congratulations because any experience is, by definition, a learning opportunity and this one should be no different. The best attitude with which to face a first date is a combination of positive thinking, hope, initiative, and calm.
If you have found love using a Christian dating website, this should in part provide the appropriate framework, as your partner is assumed to share at least some of your basic attitudes and beliefs. This helps you generate tranquility, feel hopeful, and have positive expectations about your meeting. The more the dating decision has been meditated upon, and the more gratifying and easy your Christian Chat relationship has proven to be, the more reasons you have to face your first date with the appropriate positive attitude.
In new social situations, there are people who find it especially difficult not to get nervous. This becomes worse when we are talking about such important step ahead in your online love search.

You could benefit from involving in a reasonably enjoyable activity prior to the appointment, and focusing on making your day stress-free and, of course, you should not suddenly walk out on your date because you have scheduled another appointment too soon! - Try not to leave things until the last minute: choosing and having ready the clothes you want to wear, buying the tickets if you are attending a show, reserving a table in the restaurant, tuning up your vehicle, etc.
There are those with an especially adventurous spirit always on the lookout for those surprises any day might have in store for them. All extreme attitudes imply a risk and, in this case, it would be advisable to stop and think for a minute. Put your feet firmly on the ground and consider whether you have the organizational "essential services" under control. This is about minimizing the risk that something or someone spoils your dream Christian single date, so as not to regret afterwards any disaster that could have been easily prevented. Needless to say, your partner's expectations should be taken into account as they will likely be focused on dedicating your time together to get to know each other better, tête-à-tête (that is, without too many interferences). There is no accounting for taste, though your previous experience with that single woman or man in the Christian dating website of your preference, might lead you to be certain that he or she likes the unexpected as much as you do!
Regarding positive thinking (positive but realistic, please) and hope, we know they are essential to live life to the full, and that their opposites (negativism, despair) will take us nowhere. This you can apply at all levels, even the minutest and most intimate. what we think and tell ourselves routinely when faced with any event. Do not forget how a situation can change when, instead of thinking "such a bad hair day, she will think me a loony" you opt for "my messy hairstyle is absolutely fashionable"; you should not assume "oh-no, she noticed and is surely horrified" when your single date looks at you, but, e.g. distractedly run your hand through your hair and ask her "do you like my hairstyle today?". Overall, remember to keep calm and act cool!
