Blind dating is a common way for dating also. It often occurs when someone is set up on a date through a friend or third party. People are often set up on a blind date through a friend or co-worker who knows both parties and believes they would make a great couple. If you are recommended to go on a blind date by a friend who knows you well, you might want to consider it. If your friend knows the other person as well as they know you, they might be right about the two of you connecting and getting along well together. If you trust them on relationship issues, then go along with their judgement.
When you go on a blind date you might not have any idea what the other person looks like or you might have been shown a picture. In all cases, the person you will be going out with will be someone you have never met or spoken to before. It is common to be nervous about going on a blind date because you don’t know if the person will like you and you don’t know if you will like them. Some people really enjoy being set up on a blind date and many blind dates turn into successful relationships if the right people arrange it.
You should try to find out as much information as you can about the person before you go, and be sure your friend knows the other person well, to be sure the date will not be a disaster. However, even if the two of you decide that you are not a compatible couple you might meet someone who becomes a very good friend in the long run.
Don't be nervous or stressed, it's just a few hours getting to know someone, make it fun, have fun, relax and enjoy it. You may go your separate ways and never meet again, but you won't know until you try.
