It seems as if we’ve been talking about first dates a lot this year. Maybe because it’s getting colder and the Winter months are always a little bit easier when you have someone to spend them with. We’re not sure but either way, we called all get a little better at them.

According to the Independent, a professional matchmaker says that coffee shops need to stricken from the record as the best place for a first date.
Louanne Ward is a matchmaker for millionaires and that’s good information to have. You need to take what she says with a pinch of salt.

“Cocktail dates are perfect because you can choose what you like together and there’s a lot of interaction when you’re choosing a cocktail. Also you order food that you share and this is really important.”
“If you get a second date after going for coffee with your date you are one in a million. It doesn’t normally happen”.
That’s a huge generalisation, don’t you think?
